Cellulaze The Woodlands

Finally, there’s a longer-lasting, one-time treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It’s a unique laser treatment called Cellulaze that attacks the very structure of cellulite. Cellulite isn’t a fat problem; it’s a structural problem below the skin. Only Cellulaze attacks the brittle structure beneath the skin that is the real cause of cellulite’s dimpled appearance. It increases your skin’s natural depth for a smoother, healthier look that lasts—all from just one simple treatment. Get ready to bare it all again!

This amazing 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 SideLight™ laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. The precise SideLight 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.

I have tried everything to get rid of cellulite, how do I know Cellulaze really works?

Cellulaze is backed by two 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%. Significant claims which haven’t been made by many other anti-cellulite treatments*. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin’s surface therefore improving the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 100% 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.

No. Cellulaze is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.

How long do the results last?

Clinical studies have shown results can persist for one year or more, however, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the results.
