Cellulite – the word alone makes you cringe in horror. The sun, surf, and sand lifestyle of San Diego and La Jolla, however, means that your cellulite may just be the first thing that people notice about you. Cellulite is a particularly difficult problem to manage, however, because the rippled appearance is actually caused by fat sticking through stiff connective tissue and cellulite is something that you cannot fix with diet and exercise. That is why Shumway Cosmetic Surgery in San Diego offers Cellulaze™, an amazing procedure to fight cellulite.
Cellulaze™ is the most effect way to eradicate cellulite from your body. This safe and minimally invasive procedure doesn’t just work to reduce the appearance of cellulite, but rather goes straight to the structure of cellulite in the deep recesses of your skin. By attacking the root of the issue rather than the symptoms or the aesthetic look of cellulite, it provides longer lasting results that will have you looking and feeling great! The one-time Cellulaze™ laser treatment is the best way to attack the root cause of cellulite and make it a thing of the past!
The Cellulaze™ procedure begins by inserting a very small tube under the skin. Once safely inserted, a laser fiber begins to go to work directly under the skin. This laser works to make the skin thicker and high quality, while also working at the bands in the skin that pull it down. By freeing these fibrous bands in the skin, the orange peel aesthetic associated with cellulite is reduced. The laser also stimulates the production of collagen, an essential component of skin that makes the skin more elastic, smooth and more youthful. The last portion of the procedure consists of pressing out the liquified fat from your body. In total, the procedure lasts one to one and a half hours.
Rest is recommended for a day or two after your treatment. You may have some mild bruising and discomfort, and you may notice fluid leaking from the incision sites. After a couple of days, you can return to your normal activities, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for one or two weeks.
