What If I Have Cellulite?

What if I Have Cellulite?

If you have cellulite, you’ve probably tried every kind of cellulite removal treatment in Los Angeles. While topical creams and other products may camouflage cellulite for a brief time, they aren’t cures. Even diet and exercise won’t do the trick. So, what’s the answer?

Marina Plastic Surgery is happy to offer a variety of minimally invasive cellulite procedures, including SmoothShapes®, Thermage® and a new laser-based treatment called Cellulaze™. Cellulaze treats cellulite at the source: deep within the structure of the skin. By correcting the underlying problem, Cellulaze is able to promote long-lasting improvement. Most of our patients find that their skin is smoother with less dimpling for a year or more after just 1 treatment.

If you are tired of hiding your legs, contact us today to learn more about our cellulite treatments, including Cellulaze in Los Angeles. Request a free consultation at our Marina Del Rey office.

Cellulaze: What’s It All About?

Cellulaze is a laser-assisted procedure that levels out bumps of fat by going below the skin and releasing fibrous bands of connective tissue that pull down on the skin and give it an uneven appearance. The thermal energy emitted by the laser also helps to increase skin thickness and improve skin elasticity – both of which contribute to an overall smoother look. Watch the video below to learn more about how Cellulaze works.

The Cellulaze Procedure

At our office, Cellulaze procedures are normally performed under local anesthetic for comfort and convenience. One session takes between 1 and 2 hours, depending on the size of the area being treated.

A thin cannula with a special laser tip is inserted through small incisions in the skin. The laser energy melts fat and releases connective tissue. After the procedure, you are free to return home but may be asked to wear a compression bandage to help the area heal.

Recovery & Results

Recovery from Cellulaze takes only 1 or 2 days, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for 1 to 2 weeks. Some swelling and bruising can occur, but this is usually mild and temporary. Soreness in the treated area is usually comparable to muscle aches after a workout.

Results are progressive and will normally begin to appear within a few weeks, with greater improvements becoming visible during the next 3 to 12 months. Most people need only 1 treatment and are still happy with their results after 1 year or longer. Cellulaze can be a perfect complement to Smartlipo™ in Los Angeles for women who want to remove fat and reduce cellulite.
