Cellulaze Frequently Asked Questions

 

How much does the treatment cost?

Cellulaze is a very precise and individualized treatment. Without an in-person consultation and a complete evaluation of the areas to be treated, it is inappropriate to attempt to provide an accurate estimate over the phone. The physician really needs to see the prospective patient first to provide an accurate quote.

How many treatments are required to achieve the desired results?

Only one Cellulaze treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. You'll see some immediate results, but final results won't be apparent for three to six months. Of course there are exceptions to every rule, but unless there are very large areas that need to be treated, one procedure will provide excellent results.

How does Cellulaze work?

The Cellulaze treatment is performed by using a very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) inserted under the skin. A unique SideLight™ laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. The precise SideLight laser energy increases the depth and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on your skin, to minimize the orange peel look associated with cellulite. The laser is also used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude though the fibrous bands under your skin.

Can anyone have this treatment?

The best candidates for Cellulaze are women who are not significantly overweight but have cellulite on their thighs. A consultation with a Cellulaze physician can provide you with the best information.

Does it hurt?

There is little discomfort associated with the Cellulaze treatment, since patients are treated with a local anesthetic to numb the areas that will be treated. Patients may feel slight pressure or a warming sensation in and around the areas to be treated, but these are mild sensations. Patients are able to talk with the doctor during the procedure because they are awake and not sedated.

Are there any side effects?

Cellulaze is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, therefore after the treatment there will be some swelling and a little soreness. However since Celluaze is a minimally invasive laser procedure, incision sites are very small and there is little bleeding during the procedure. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities in a day or two. Patients may have some fluid leak out of the incision sites following the procedure.

I have tried everything to get rid of cellulite, how do I know Cellulaze really works?

Cellulaze is backed by two years of clinical research and cleared for use in the United States. Clinical data has proven Cellulaze treatments can increase the thickness of the skin by 25% and increase the skin's elasticity by 29%: significant claims which haven't been made by many other anti-cellulite treatments*. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin's surface therefore improving the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 100% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results one year after their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze treatment to a friend.

How long does the procedure take?

On average, the procedure will take one to two hours, depending on the size of the areas to be treated.

Do I have to stay in the hospital?

No, Cellulaze is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.

How long do the results last?

Since new collagen is formed in the areas treated with Cellulaze and the structures under the skin are altered-producing results that last.  Clinical studies have shown results can persist for one year or more.  However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the results. 

Will there be scarring?

The incision sites will be very small.  With proper care, any scars will be barely noticeable.  A Cellulaze physician is best to evaluate your skin type and provide the best information on scar prevention.

This Video Will Make You Think Twice About Not Wearing Sunscreen

If you're not already wearing sunscreen regularly, here's something to convince you. Photographer Thomas Leveritt modified his camera to record people in the ultraviolet spectrum, which highlights freckles and sun damage unnoticeable to the naked eye. He captured strangers' shocked reactions at viewing their faces in a way they never had before. Leveritt also asked his subjects to apply sunscreen to show how under the camera's filter, the white lotion shows up like black war paint.

The video — which has more than 12 million views on YouTube as of Aug. 25 — has people singing the praises of sunscreen, which, aside from leading to better looking skin, can actually save your life. Earlier this summer, the U.S. surgeon general warned that about 9,000 people die each year from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer and a mostly preventable disease. But promoting the benefits of sunscreen wasn't Leveritt's intention.

"I haven't particularly been a proponent of sunscreen, I'm a much bigger proponent of cameras and tech," he said in an email to NBC News. But when trying out an experiment to test inexpensive sunglasses using his customized camera setup, he found something much more compelling: people's faces. "The reactions of people to their own faces produced such a wide palette of emotions that I thought would make a wonderful montage," Leveritt said. The internet agrees.
