There are different kinds of laser cellulite treatment performed at plastic surgery centers. This article focuses on the facts you need to know with respect to Cellulaze™. This revolutionary workstation got FDA cleared by the end of January 2012. It is a product from Cynosure®, the very same company that brought out the successful series of Smartlipo™ laser liposuction workstations.
Cellulaze Cellulite Treatment Facts with Elaboration
You Get Lasting Results with a Single Treatment – Unlike several other cellulite reduction procedures that have to be repeatedly used to treat the dimpled appearance, Cellulaze has to be done just once. The results from this one-time procedure would remain for at least a year. For one lucky patient, there is still no sign of the “cottage cheese” appearance even after two years (as reported in an article on Cynosure’s Cellulaze™ website).
Tackles the Root of the Problem – Cellulaze is the sole procedure that attacks the basic structural issues under the skin that are the reasons for cellulite. These structural issues are:
tightness and non-pliancy of the bands of connective tissue that lie under the skin and around the vicinity of the fat cells and
fat deposits held hostage by these stiff bands pushing against the skin
Short Duration Surgery – The duration of this cellulite removal surgery is typically 1 to 2 hours.
Improves Skin Quality Considerably – The results of clinical studies reveal that the technique can increase skin flexibility by 29 percent and skin thickness by 25 percent.
Can Only Be Delivered by A Qualified Physician – In addition to the basic qualifications, the plastic surgeon should have successfully completed a web-based course accredited by the CME and received comprehensive training for Cellulaze laser cellulite treatment.
Has a High Patient Satisfaction Rate – according to a survey, 93 percent of a set of patients who received the treatment were either content or very content with the outcomes one year after the procedure. 100 percent of them said they would recommend this cosmetic surgery procedure to a friend.
Versatile – The laser system delivers successful outcomes irrespective of the size of the treatment region.
Works Best on Women Not too Much above Their Ideal Weight – The women who would get the best outcomes from the procedure are those who are not too much above their ideal weight and with slight or medium cellulite buildup.
A Wide Awake and Safe Procedure – Prior to the laser cellulite treatment, only local anesthesia or an anesthetizing solution would be applied on the area concerned (thighs or buttocks). The procedure itself is a minimally invasive one involving minute incisions, which minimizes bleeding. The use of a superior delivery system called ThermaGuide™ helps to determine the amount of laser energy required and ensure that this amount is evenly distributed. Thus irregularities in the outcome and hot spots can be avoided. The ThermaGuide™ system also facilitates improved tissue tightening capabilities.
No Hospital Stay – You don’t have to remain in the hospital post-surgery.
Speedy Recovery – You can resume your regular activities a day or two after the surgery. You may be required to wear a compression garment for a specified period following the surgery.
Cost Varies – The cost would depend on the size of the treatment area and the town or city where you’re going to get the procedure done from.
Minimal Bruising and Scarring – At the most, you’ll have mild bruising. The scars are hardly noticeable.
