With the Cellulaze™ treatment, plastic surgeon Dr. Glat says there is no reason for women to put up with cellulite.This is the first device shown to be effective on cellulite with just one treatment, he says.
Online PR News – 12-April-2012 – Philadelphia, PA – Body wraps, creams, suction machines, voodoo? “Women have tried everything to get rid of the unsightly “cottage cheese’ texture and dimpling caused by cellulite on their legs, thigh and buttocks,” says Dr. Glat. “Too bad the results have been less dramatic than the treatments.” But now a new device named Cellulaze™ has gained FDA clearance and more importantly, women are seeing real and impressive results. Cellulaze is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedure performed by a qualified physician. Board certified “Top Doc Philadelphia” plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Glat is the first physician in the Philadelphia area to offer Cellulaze treatments.
According to Cynosure Inc., the manufacturer, Cellulaze is a treatment for cellulite that attacks its very structure: “Cellulite is actually caused by factors outside a woman’s control. Many believe it’s a fat problem, which can be addressed through diet and exercise. But fat isn’t the only culprit. Cellulite is a structural problem below the skin.”
Aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite. These factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and the fat cells they surround to become larger and push up into the skin. And that creates the “cottage cheese” effect that women wish they could eliminate, which is even easier to see if the woman has thin skin.
Women can’t control these cellulite causing factors, regardless of how much they run or salads they eat. Many other anti-cellulite treatments focus on cellulite superficially, applying treatments above the skin. But the Cellulaze treats the fibrous bands beneath the skin, while also thickening and adding elasticity to the skin.
Cellulaze provides long-lasting results with just a single anti-cellulite treatment. Here’s what patients can expect during the procedure:
The physician will mark the areas of cellulite to be treated with a marker, and a couple of tiny incisions will be made, about the size of the tip of a pen.
Local anesthesia or numbing solution is used, then the Cellulaze laser fiber is threaded through a very small tube (or cannula) and inserted through the incision site. The physician will use the SideLight™ 3D Cellulaze laser fiber to level out bumps of fat, treat dimples by releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin and stimulate collagen production to increase the skin’s depth and elasticity for a smoother look.
Then the liquefied fat is gently pressed out. The entire procedure should take about 1 to 1.5 hours.
The manufacturer states that Cellulaze has been thoroughly investigated to ensure safer, more effective results. A clinical study showed that a single Cellulaze treatment improved the appearance of cellulite for one year with few side effects. Further, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results one year post-procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze treatment to a friend. The data also indicate compelling improvements in skin quality. Thicker, more elastic skin can help improve the appearance of cellulite. Cellulaze was shown to increase skin thickness by 25%, and skin elasticity by 29% even after 1 year —significant claims that other anti-cellulite treatments don't make. In a qualified physician's hands, Cellulaze gives patients visibly smoother, healthier looking skin—an anti-cellulite treatment that lasts.
