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 SideLaze3D™ laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. The precise SideLaze3D 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 and buttocks. 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 minimally invasive, 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 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%. 1 Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin’s surface therefore improving the appearance of cellulite. In addition, a high percentage 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. Cellulaze has clinically proven data showing results lasting up to 3 years.
