What Is Involved in the Cellulite Reduction Procedure?
Posted Jan 28 2013 5:44am
Cellulite is one of the most common problems of women. It commonly appears on the hips, thighs and buttocks. The main problem with cellulite is that it cannot be removed by mere dieting or exercising mainly because there are structural causes involved.
Cellulite can damage the smoothness of the skin and make you look older than you really are. Many women suffer from low self confidence due to cellulite. Creams, lotions and gels are available in the market to treat cellulite but they work only on the surface. The good news is that now laser cellulite treatment provided at select plastic surgery facilities in the U.S can effectively remove cellulite from your body. Cellulaze treatment introduced by Cynosure is the proven method for successful cellulite reduction.
How Cellulite Is Formed
Many factors such as age, genetics, hormonal changes, poor diet and lack of workout are said to contribute to cellulite development. Cellulite results from fat deposits getting trapped between thickened fibrous tissue bands beneath the skin. These fat cells push up against the skin causing the dreaded “cottage cheese” appearance. At the same time, the fibrous tissue bands pull down the skin creating the “orange peel” or pitted appearance. Since structural causes are involved, topical treatments do not bring about effective cellulite reduction. Therefore a treatment that can work beneath the skin is required. Cellulaze Cellulite Reduction – a Very Effective Procedure
Cellulaze cellulite treatment is now very much in the news as the most successful procedure to remove cellulite. Treatment is provided using Cynosure’s Cellulaze device which delivers laser energy underneath the skin to treat cellulite.
The area to be treated is first marked with a marker
Tiny incisions about the size of the tip of a pen are made in the area
A numbing solution or local anesthesia is used to numb the area
The Cellulaze laser fiber is threaded through a very small cannula and inserted through the incision
The laser is directed at the fat deposits to melt them; then the laser releases the fibrous bands that pull down the skin; simultaneously it stimulates collagen production that increases the skin’s thickness and elasticity. This results in a smoother look for the skin.
The liquefied fat is gently pressed out without causing discomfort to the patient.
Safe and Quick Procedure with Minimal Side Effects
Cellulaze cellulite reduction is a safe procedure and is not associated with any harmful side effects. The procedure can be completed in one to one and a half hours and patients can get back to routine work soon, after a day or two. The results will improve over the next 3 to 12 months.
