Cellulite is a problem most women have a hard time getting rid of, and even women who are fit and lean have to deal with it to some degree. Although there is no cure for cellulite, there are treatments like Cellulaze that can reduce its appearance. But what exactly is Cellulaze and is it safe?
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by body fat that has become trapped in a web of fibrous bands of connective tissue, below the skin’s surface. These bands pull down on the fat layer as it grows, and causes the dimpling effect known as cellulite.
What is Cellulaze?
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive laser treatment that is designed to treat cellulite. The technique has been successful in reducing cellulite, because it treats cellulite at the structural level in the deep layer of the skin (learn more).
During the procedure a small laser probe is inserted under the skin. The laser delivers energy that heats up the fat, and cuts away the fibrous bands of tissue around it. The laser also boosts collagen development.
Once the fat is removed the skin will appear smoother, and more improvements will be seen as collagen levels increase over the following months. The results generally last for a year or more.
Is it safe?
Cellulaze is considered a safe procedure, and the side effects associated with the treatment are few. These include bruising and swelling.Cellulaze utilizes the cutting-edge Nd: YAG 1440 nm wavelength laser, which generally produces no adverse effects, as long as it is used by an experienced provider.
