Cellulite Reduction with Cellulaze™
For many women, cellulite is an inevitably frustrating obstacle to feeling confident in their appearance. In fact, approximately 85 percent of women over the age of 20 have cellulite, which can result in dimpling or uneven skin around the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Caused by aging, genetics, and your body’s fat distribution process, cellulite appears in lumpy pockets of fat that push connective tissues underneath the skin and cause imperfections in the surface. Thankfully, Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Sukkar is now offering Cellulaze™, an FDA-approved treatment proven to effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Who is a Good Candidate for Cellulite Treatment?
Women who are looking to decrease the appearance of cellulite with a minimally-invasive procedure.
Women who are frustrated with the appearance of cellulite and have been unable reduce its appearance through regular diet and exercise.
The Cellulaze™ Procedure
Cellulaze™ is performed under local anesthesia during a one-time treatment with results that can last up to one year. Dr. Sukkar uses a fiber optic laser inserted through tiny incisions about the size of a ball-point pen to gently level out bumps and release the fibrous bands that cause dimpling. The heat and laser technology also acts to stimulate the growth of collagen for smoother, healthier skin in the targeted areas. The entire procedure takes one to one and a half hours to perform. Cellulaze™ may also be performed in conjunction with liposuction for more enhanced body sculpting.
Most patients can resume normal daily activities immediately after the procedure.
Some slight bruising and sensitivity is to be expected.
- Patients can expect to see results after about 4 weeks.
- Full cellulite reduction will continue to develop and improve over three months and up to two years following the procedure.
- A majority of patients experience a 50-60% improvement in the reduction of cellulite, however results may vary based on your individual skin and body composition.
