How Does Cellulaze™ Work?
Cellulaze™ treatment uses laser technology to address multiple structural concerns that cause the appearance of cellulite.
- Skin: The laser energy increases skin thickness, firmness, and elasticity so that it is smoother and more resistant to showing cellulite.
- Fibrous bands: Cellulaze™ treatment releases the connective fibrous bands beneath the skin that pull down and indent the skin.
- Fat: The laser fiber liquefies bulges of fat so the skin can lie flat.
The Cellulaze™ Procedure
Your surgeon will first mark the cellulite treatment areas with a marker. Then, he will make tiny incisions and insert the Cellulaze™ laser fiber through a small tube in the incision site. The laser technology will be delivered beneath the skin to address thin or loose skin, connective tissue bands, and fat bulges.
This treatment will level out bumps of fat and indentations while stimulating collagen production, which tightens the skin and eliminates the appearance of cellulite.
