Cellulite is the result of connective tissue bands under the skin that surround fat cells. As the fat cells become larger it pushes up into the skin creating the "cottage cheese" effect, which is easier to see if you have thin skin.
Cellulaze™ from Cynosure is the only treatment that attacks the structural problems beneath the skin that cause cellulite. Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted anti-cellulite treatment that is clinically proven to increase your skin's natural thickness for a smoother, healthier look that lasts.
You can't control the factors that create cellulite regardless of how many miles you run or salads you eat. But you can control how you treat cellulite. Many other anti-cellulite treatments focus on cellulite superficially, applying treatment above the skin. Only Cellulaze™ treats the fibrous bands beneath the skin, while also thickening and adding elasticity to the skin.
Cellulaze™ is performed using local anesthesia (numbing injections) plus oral sedation, and a very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) is then inserted under the skin. Cynosure's unique SideLaze laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. This increases the thickness and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull the skin down-minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite.
Finally, the cellulite laser is used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude though the fibrous bands under your skin. Because the area is numbed with local anesthesia, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a light pressure, but it is a mild sensation. Following a Cellulaze™ cellulite laser treatment, you may experience some aches, much like after a physical workout. A compression garment is worn for 2 weeks. Cellulaze™ can increase skin thickness by 25%, and skin elasticity by 29% even after 1 year. Cellulaze™ gives you visibly smoother, healthier looking skin-an anti-cellulite treatment that lasts.
