Make 2016 the year you bid farewell to your embarrassing cottage cheese thighs and make fitting rooms a fun place once again.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite appears on the skin’s surface as uneven dimpling resembling cottage cheese or an orange peel. Most women will experience cellulite at some point in their lives, which commonly occurs on the buttocks, hips and thighs. Contrary to popular belief, it is not linked directly to weight gain. A variety of factors contribute to the appearance of cellulite:

Connective fibers in underlying skin tissue tightens, creating dimples
Pockets of fat trapped by tight fibers expand, producing lumpy appearance
Skin thins over time, intensifying the look of the cellulite

Once cellulite forms, it cannot be eliminated through exercise or topical solutions. In order for a cellulite treatment to provide effective, long-lasting results, it must be able to address all three of these factors. Cellulaze offers cutting-edge technology to achieve this goal.

Treatment that Works

State-of-the-art laser technology is the secret behind the success of Cellulaze. This device utilizes concentrated laser energy to release fibrous bands that lead to skin dimpling. At the same time, the laser liquefies fat cells in the area, reducing the size of the fat pockets that cause the lumpy appearance. Finally, the laser energy stimulates the body’s own collagen production, creating smoother, thicker skin for a more consistent appearance on the skin’s surface.

A cellulaze treatment is performed using local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. After the treatment area is numbed, a small tube is inserted into the area to deliver laser energy underneath the skin’s surface. The procedure is relatively comfortable for the patient and post-procedural discomfort is much less than most patients expect. Patients will likely experience some bruising or swelling around the treatment sites, but that will subside in a matter of days. The majority of people that undergo Cellulaze treatments return to their daily schedules within a couple of days and more strenuous activity within 1-2 weeks.

One Treatment, Long-Lasting Results

Only one treatment session of Cellulaze is usually required to achieve long-lasting results. The results will start to become evident shortly after the procedure and continue to improve in the months following. The skin in the treated area will look smoother and healthier, while the cottage cheese appearance is eliminated. Most patients enjoy long-lasting results with Cellulaze, although the treatment is still too new to determine whether those results will be permanent.

Are You Ready for Cellulaze?

Cellulaze is the first approved procedure that actually gets to the underlying cause of cellulite to offer effective, long-lasting results. It is generally recommended to patients that are a good weight, in relatively good health and have realistic expectations about the procedure. Aesthetic Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this treatment option to our La Mesa clients.
