Long-Lasting Cellulaze

Finesse is the first center in Massachusetts to offer the revolutionary Cellulaze procedure for the long-term reduction of cellulite. Over 85% of women have cellulite affecting their thighs, hips, and / or buttocks, presenting as dimpled, uneven skin – the dreaded “cottage cheese” look. With the FDA-cleared Cellulaze system, there is finally a way to significantly reduce unsightly cellulite with a single treatment. Results have been shown to last two years or more with this minimally invasive procedure.

In most cases, cellulite does not respond to diet and exercise. Topical creams and external laser or radiofrequency devices provide inconsistent results that are only temporary. Cellulaze is the first treatment that specifically targets the underlying causes of cellulite at both the skin and fat level. The treatment, based on the Smartlipo Triplex™system, uses the proprietary SideLight 3D side-firing laser to:

  • Disrupt and melt herniated fat pockets
  • Release the fibrous bands that create the dimpling effect by pulling down the skin
  • Stimulate collagen production to increase the thickness and elasticity of the skin resulting in a smoother, more-even appearance

Cellulaze™ Cosmetic Questions

Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structure of cellulite beneath your skin. It delivers longer lasting results after only one short treatment.

There are countless treatments that claim to get rid of cellulite, but these other treatments – massage, external energy devices, creams and lotions – can only treat cellulite superficially by working at the skin’s surface. These treatments require either daily or weekly applications, and the results are often inconsistent. Cellulaze is the first and only cellulite laser treatment that treats the actual problems underneath the skin to deliver a proven longer-lasting result from just one simple treatment.

Generally, dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months and vary depending on the treatment area. The effects of dermal fillers may vary by the patient – some may require more frequent treatments while others may experience longer-term results.

A very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) is inserted under the skin. The unique SideLight laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. This increases the thickness and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull it down, minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite. Finally, the cellulite laser is used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that produce visible bulges on your skin.

Cellulaze delivers the best results for women who are not significantly overweight but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs.

You should see some initial benefits after a few weeks, but final results usually take three to twelve months to develop as the skin’s elasticity and thickness increase.

On average, this cellulite laser procedure will take one to three hours. This is dependent on the size of the areas to be treated.

The cellulite laser treatment is a minimally invasive procedure which requires only local anesthesia with light oral sedation. Some bruising can occur, but you’ll be able to return to normal activities within a few days. You will wear a compression garment for two weeks after the procedure.

Results are achieved with just one cellulite laser treatment. Your results will continue to improve over the next 3 – 12 months.
