Cellulite is the result of fat deposits pushing their way through small bands of connective tissue. As the connective tissues begin to separate, more and more small dimples are created. The topographic texture of the flesh looks rough and slightly lumpy. Losing weight and toning the muscles can reduce the effects of cellulite but won't make it completely disappear.
Cellulite often forms as fat deposits continue to develop under the surface tissues. The more the fat deposits form, the more pronounced the cellulite becomes. You'll usually find cellulite on the larger areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, and lower back.
The development of cellulite isn't something you have control over; most healthcare professionals agree that cellulite runs in families. While skin tone, texture, and the amount of weight you gain over time will play a role in how cellulite forms and its visibility, it may appear no matter what you do to try and prevent it.
The Cellulaze laser works much in the same way as traditional liposuction procedures, only with a smaller cannula and a laser that is used to target very specific areas of fat.
The laser works by strengthening and toning your skin, causing it to thicken and be more resilient. The laser also releases the small bands of connective tissue, eliminating the skin's dimpled appearance.
Once the fibrous bands are gone, the laser continues to target small fat deposits and eliminate them, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
The Cellulaze laser treatment offers long-lasting effects. While they’re guaranteed for up to a year, if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly, the results may last much longer. Each person's results will differ depending on their body makeup and the size of the fatty deposits your practitioner treats.
The treatment itself usually lasts less than two hours but will depend on the scale of the treatment area.
The Cellulaze laser is minimally invasive, which means little to no scarring. While you may be somewhat sore for the first day or two after the procedure, the recovery time is brief, and you can return to your normal, day to day activities within a day or two.
