We now know that cellulite is a harmless cosmetic problem that is produced by a variety of biological and structural issues. Cellulaze™ is an exciting new procedure that allows our specialists to quickly and safely address the root causes of cellulite without damaging the nearby tissue. Not only is this treatment extremely safe, but 93 percent of all patients are still satisfied with the results one year after their procedures. If you are tired of ineffective cellulite treatments, then you might be the perfect Cellulaze™ candidate.
The Structure of Your Skin
While men can develop cellulite, it is much more common among women for a few different reasons. Men tend to accumulate extra body fat near the stomach and flanks while women collect more fat in the hips and thighs. Women also have long strips of connective tissue that run from their midsection to their knees. When the fatty tissue begins to poke through the connective tissue, it will create the characteristic dimples and bulges we know as cellulite.
The Truth About Creams and Ointments
Hundreds of different products claim that they will erase cellulite, but very few topical creams or ointments can do anything to treat this cosmetic issue. Some of these topical treatments will improve skin health and potentially prevent further damage, but they can’t address the underlying fat and connective tissue. In order to create long-term changes, you need to take care of both of those problems. Even staying at a healthy weight might not be enough to help you avoid cellulite if you have a family history of this condition.
Understanding the Technology Behind Cellulaze™
The Cellulaze™ system utilizes a variety of different technologies that have become very popular in the medical industry over the last few years. A small laser is used to weaken and shrink pockets of fat. It is then used to cut the fiber bands that the fat is pushing through. While all of this is happening, the heat that is emanating from the laser will stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. Those two important proteins are going to improve skin elasticity and thickness in the coming months.
