Cellulaze a New Laser Cellulite Technology

By Kai Wade - Director of Communications & Social Media | July 3rd, 2012


Nearly 8 out of 10 women— have some degree of cellulite. Cellulite gives off the appearance of dimpled skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen of most women and occasionally men, too.

While some women remain guilty to the frequent purchases of massages and cellulite creams, ultimately advertising astonishing results, others remain hopeful that diet and exercise will trim off that self-conscious surface.

To truly fathom the hidden attributes of cellulite, let’s start on the inside.

Deep Inside

The outermost layer of skin is referred to as your epidermis. Directly below the epidermis is the dermis, uniquely blended by hair follicles, sweat glands, blood vessels, nerve receptors and connective tissue. Continuously below this tissue are three layers of internal fat.

The uppermost layer of fat is termed “standing fat-cell chambers” divided by connective tissue. Next to these fat-cell chambers reside small projections of fat cells bulging into the dermis. This patchiness and inequality of the fat underlies the bumpy appearance of cellulite.

So, why do more women see cellulite than men? The epidermis, dermis and uppermost layer of the tissue are altered in males. Men have thicker epidermis and dermis tissue layers in the thighs and buttocks.

Cellulaze is a breakthrough treatment in the dermatology world that attacks the structure of cellulite for clinically proven, longer-lasting results.

"This is a groundbreaking new procedure," Dr. Bruce Katz, New York dermatologist, stated.

What most women don’t realize is that cellulite is actually caused by factors out of their control. It is a structural issue below the skin.

Designed as a minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedure, Cellulaze is an innovative anti-cellulite treatment to increase your skin's natural thickness for a smoother, healthier appearance— with just one treatment.

You got it.  One treatment.

Aging, hormones, genetics and intense weight change is a key factor in the appearance of cellulite. Combined together, these ever-changing factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and each fat cell surrounding them to swell and push up into the skin—ultimately creating a ‘cottage cheese’ effect.

With one treatment of Cellulaze, it’s cellu-GONE.

Cellulaze has been meticulously explored and examined by experts to ensure safe, effective results. A clinical study showed that a single Cellulaze treatment enhanced the look of cellulite for one year with few side effects.

Laser therapy is also used by dermatologists for other skin treatments— from providing treatment for acne to cosmetic dermatology to reduce the appearance of birthmarks and enhancing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How does it work?

  • Expert physician marks areas of cellulite to be treated
  • Employs tiny, meticulous incisions
  • Local anesthesia is used
  • The Cellulaze laser fiber is threaded through small tube (or cannula) and introduced through the incision site
  • SideLaze3D™ Cellulaze laser releases fibrous bands and levels out bumpy appearance
  • The entire procedure —1–1.5 hours
