Cellulite is a common cosmetic problem that nearly 90 percent of women will experience at some point in their lives. While this condition takes place around the buttocks and thighs, some patients will develop cellulite on their midsection, arms, and even their back.
Cellulaze is a quick procedure designed to help those struggling with cellulite. This treatment method is one of the few options that penetrates the skin and addresses the root causes of cellulite.
Where Did This Cellulite Come From?
Many patients link cellulite with excess fatty tissue, but even thin patients can develop this cosmetic condition. Cellulite takes place when layers of fat and soft tissue push through connective fibers.
Unlike men that have a “web” of connective tissue, women have strands of connective fibers that run down their body. Over the years, these fibers will become weakened, fat will push through, and cellulite will become visible.
Obesity can affect this condition because more fat will push through the connective tissue, but any amount of fat can create cellulite. Most women notice these cosmetic issues between their belly button and their knees where most of their fat is stored. While cellulite is not a medical emergency, women often find it to be unsightly and a clear sign of aging.
Many of the products and services that are designed to treat cellulite never penetrate below the outer layer of skin. This means that the results are often short-lived or negligible.
Cellulaze was one of the first cosmetic services approved by the FDA to treat this pervasive condition.
Your Cellulaze Appointment
Patients that are in relatively good health with no major skin conditions are ideal candidates for this procedure. It is also important that you are relatively close to your ideal weight. Extreme weight fluctuations can affect the final results.
After your initial consultation with the surgeon, you can then schedule your Cellulaze appointment.
The procedure itself can be quick. A topical anesthetic is applied before an incision is made to prevent discomfort. A laser is used to break apart the connective tissue. The total treatment time will depend on the size of the area that is being treated.
During recovery, most patients require nothing more than over-the-counter painkillers for a few days. It is important that they wear their compression garments. Patients that stay at a healthy weight will often be able to maintain the results.
