One simple anti-cellulite treatment. One incredibly smooth body.
Who isn't frustrated by stubborn cellulite?
Introducing Cellulaze - the only available treatment that attacks the structural causes of cellulite from beneath
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is a structural problem beneath the surface of the skin and is caused by factors that are beyond our control. While many believe cellulite can be effectively addressed through diet and exercise, this is quite often not the case! Aging, hormones, genetics and weight changes can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite. All of these factors can cause the connective bands beneath the skin's surface to stiffen. These fibrous bands ultimately enable the surrounding fat cells to become enlarged and push up into the skin. This creates the "cottage cheese" look that so many individuals strive to eliminate. For individuals with thin skin, this look is even more prominent.
Cellulaze treats cellulite in 3 ways
Releases the fibrous bands which pull down on the skin's surface
Directly targets pockets of fat cells
Thickens skin and increases its elasticity
How does the Cellulaze cellulite laser work?
A very small cannula containing a laser fiber is inserted and used to deliver energy directly under the skin. This releases the fibrous bands that cause the "cottage cheese" appearance of cellulite, while simultaneously increasing the thickness and quality of your skin. The laser is then used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude though the fibrous bands under your skin.
What is Cellulaze?
Cellulaze is the latest in anti-cellulite technology, clinically proven to increase the thickness of your skin to create a smoother, healthier look with just one treatment! Cellulaze is a minimally invasive, laser assisted procedure that can be performed only by a qualified physician such as Dr. Barr. Past anti-cellulite technology focused solely on treating cellulite at the superficial level. Only Cellulaze thickens and adds elasticity to the skin, while treating the fibrous bands beneath its surface.
What should I expect during my Cellulaze procedure?
Dr. Barr will use a marker to indicate the areas of cellulite to be treated .
A few, tiny incisions will be made. (Local anesthesia or numbing solution will be used to prevent discomfort)
The Cellulaze laser fiber is threaded through a very small cannula and inserted through the incision site.
Dr. Barr will use the SideLaze3D™ Cellulaze laser fiber to:
Level out areas of bumpy fat
Treat dimples by releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin
Stimulate collagen production in order to increase your skin’s depth and elasticity thus creating a smoother look
Liquefied fat is gently pressed out.
What should I expect following my Cellulaze procedure?
Following your procedure, you may experience some bruising and discomfort.
A small amount of fluid may leak from the incision sites.
Dr. Barr may also ask that you wear a compression garment in order to decreases post-operative swelling and bruising.
Most patients resume normal activities one to two days following their procedure and can resume full activity one to two weeks after that.
