There are few cosmetic issues that are as aggravating as cellulite. The appearance of lumpy and dimpled flesh has left many women feeling unhappy with their appearance and self-conscious about wearing revealing clothing, such as bathing suits. Cellulaze™ is a revolutionary new treatment that addresses the root causes of cellulite to produce smooth and toned skin for three years or longer.
Where Did My Cellulite Come from?
Studies have found that over 90 percent of women will develop cellulite at some point in their life. One of the primary causes of this cosmetic issue is the hormone known as estrogen. Patients who have higher levels of estrogen tend to hold more fat in their hips, thighs and buttocks. Just above this extra fat is a layer of connective tissue.
When the fat pushes against the connective tissue, it will result in visible dimples and valleys. Even women who are at a healthy weight can still develop cellulite due to these unusual strands of connective tissue. Men rarely have cellulite because their fat is generally stored in their stomach and their connective tissue is slightly thicker.
Creams and Ointments
There is an entire industry built around creams, ointments and lotions that claim to get rid of cellulite. Unfortunately, research has shown us that topical treatments are almost completely ineffective. The root causes of cellulite are taking place deep below the surface of a woman’s skin. No amount of hydration will remove the pockets of fat or affect the connective tissue. This is why so many women have turned to the popular cosmetic procedure known as Cellulaze™ for long-term results.
What is Cellulaze™?
This is a minimally invasive treatment that was first approved by the FDA in 2012. Unlike over-the-counter products that only affect the surface of one’s skin, this treatment is carried out by a special device with a medical-grade laser attached to the end. Once under the skin, the laser will begin to heat up and emulsify the pockets of fat.
The same laser can also be used to affect the connective tissue that is causing the bulges. Throughout this process, the device will continuously stimulate the skin, and this encourages the patient’s body to produce more collagen.
After Cellulaze™ Treatment
One of the reasons why so many patients have chosen Cellulaze™ over surgical treatments is because there is a much shorter downtime. After two nights of recovery, patients can return to most of their regular daily activities. As long as the patient maintains a healthy diet, exercises and stays at a healthy weight, they might never have to deal with unsightly cellulite again.
