Say Goodbye to Cellulite
With the arrival of summer typically comes shorts and bathing suit weather, complete with plenty of social occasions to enjoy both. If you are planning to spend your season indoors due to embarrassing cellulite, we have good news for you. The staff at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan now offers a state-of-the-art cellulite treatment that will eliminate that unsightly cottage cheese appearance and give you smoother thighs to flaunt in your summer clothing. Cellulaze is the latest in cellulite treatment that can give you positive, long-lasting results in a single treatment session.
A Threefold Problem
Cellulite is a common problem that affects most women at some point during their lives. It often develops around the childbearing years, usually after pregnancy, around the hips and buttocks. Cellulite is not caused by weight gain and no amount of diet and exercise will reduce its orange peel resemblance.
There are three forces at work that contribute to the appearance of cellulite. First, fibrous bands underneath the skin’s surface constrict, creating the dimpled look. Second, fat cells in the area expand and push against the fibrous banding, exacerbating the cottage cheese appearance. Finally, skin thins as we age, which makes the dimpling appear more prominent over time.
Treating the Source of Cellulite
Cellulaze is the first FDA-approved cellulite treatment that effectively addresses all three contributors of cellulite using state-of-the-art laser technology. The laser energy is delivered directly into the area of cellulite using a fine fiber, where it releases the fibrous bands that result in skin dimpling. The laser heat also liquefies some of the fat cells in the area, allowing them to be reabsorbed by the body and creating a smoother look to the skin.
Finally, the laser energy stimulates collagen production in the treatment area, which restores skin to its supple state. The overall result is skin that is smoother, clearer and even more youthful looking after just a single treatment session of Cellulaze.
Little Discomfort, Fast Recovery
Cellulaze is performed right in our Manhattan office using local anesthesia. The procedure is relatively painless and patients are able to go home immediately following treatment. Most patients take a couple of days after the procedure to rest and recover but are able to return to nearly all of their activities after the short recovery period is over. Patients are typically given a compression garment to wear after the procedure to minimize swelling and bruising and enhance final results.
You will be able to see early results of your Cellulaze treatment within days after your procedure as fibrous bands are released and skin dimpling is eliminated. Results will continue to improve in the weeks following treatment, as fat cells are reabsorbed by the body and collagen builds smoother, healthier skin. Full results are generally seen within 3-6 months, although some patients continue to see improvement for up to one year after their procedure.
Once your results are apparent, they will be long-lasting since the cellulite is treated at its source. If new areas of cellulite develop, additional treatments can be performed to maintain your smoother, more youthful look.
