What is the Cellulaze all about? Ask a doctor at a local treatment center in Walnut Creek
By Dr. Christine Lee
Cellulite is a common problem that affects many women, regardless of their weight, size, fitness level, or ethnicity. This condition results in dimpling of the skin, often found around the area of the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. It can be extremely embarrassing, especially during the summer and swimsuit season. Patients can now “bare it all” after seeking treatment for their cellulite with Cellulaze. Cellulaze is a specific procedure available in Walnut Creek, CA at our quality center for skin and body treatments.
What is Cellulaze treatment?
Cellulaze treatment is a procedure used to break down the tight fibers underneath the skin that cause the development of cellulite. Cellulite is caused by the fat that comes through between the tight fibers, resulting in dimpling around the inner and outer thighs and buttocks. There have been many treatments that have hit the market over the years, but unfortunately, none of them truly address the problem at hand—until Cellulaze.
How is Cellulaze treatment performed?
First, patients visit The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute for a consultation visit with Dr. M. Christine Lee. She is a Board-certified dermatologist who has the experience patients look for in a medical professional offering aesthetic and medical treatments. She evaluates a patient to determine if they are a good candidate for Cellulaze treatment. Once this has been determined, patients book their first session. The procedure uses a small cannula which is a tube-like instrument that is inserted into the body through a very small incision. The cannula uses specialized energy to break down the connective tissue and fibers that cause the formation of cellulite. By doing this, it reduces the dimpling of the skin and breaks down lumps of fat deposits. In addition, Cellulaze also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to provide long-term results in smoothing of the skin. Within approximately two hours, patients will have a completely different look to their skin’s texture.
The procedure is done under local anesthetics, without having to put patients “under” for their treatment. This in-office procedure is relatively comfortable for our patients, and some experiencing soreness the following day that is minor and short-term. Patients may see some bruising, but this is normal and will subside. Compressions garments should be worn for two days before patients can resume their normal activities. In addition to immediate results, patients will also see continued improvement over several months thanks to the natural production of collagen and elastin that occurs over time.
Is Cellulaze treatment safe?
Yes! When Cellulaze is performed by a professional at a dermatology center with years of experience, patients will rest easy knowing their procedure is safe and effective at improving their skin’s texture. Cellulite can be stubborn, but by treating the problem at the source, patients will see significant results quickly and easily with this minimally-invasive option.
Who is a candidate for Cellulaze?
Any man or woman experiencing the development of cellulite on their skin can ask our team about the benefits of moving forward with Cellulaze treatment. Cellulaze is the only treatment available on the market that is FDA-approved to address cellulite on the skin. It is also an affordable option that many of our patients seek. Determining candidacy can be achieved during a consultation appointment during which Dr. M. Christine Lee can talk with patients regarding the treatment so patients know what to expect. This is the primary treatment for cellulite. There are currently no other solutions available on the market today, so if patients are serious about combatting their condition, this is the best option for them to consider.
