Precision Tx/Cellulaze is a one time in office laser treatment of cellulite. It is a virtually painless one to two hour procedure performed under local anesthesia with oral premedication with minimal to no downtime or risks. This procedure delivers laser energy to disrupt trapped pockets of fat, release fibrous bands that pull down on the skin and stimulate collagen growth for thicker, more elastic and healthier looking skin.
Frequently asked questions
How does Cellulaze work?
A tiny 1 mm catheter is inserted under the skin under local anesthesia. Cynosure’s unique SideLight laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. This increases the depth and quality of your skin, while at the same time, releasing the tight fibrous bands that pull it down- minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite. Finally, the laser is used to melt the lump pockets of fat that protrude through the fibrous bands under your skin.
How do I know if Cellulaze is right for me?
Cellulaze delivers the best results for women who are not significantly overweight but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs. Talk to your Plastic Surgeon to discuss your needs.
What does the procedure feel like?
Because the area is numbed with local anesthesia, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You might experience some light pressure during the procedure and some soreness afterwards, but you will be able to return to normal activities in two to three days.
I’ve tried everything to get rid of cellulite. How do I know Cellulaze really works?
Cellulaze is supported by two years of clinical research. Studies have shown that it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%- significant claims that haven’t been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin’s surface to improve the appearance of cellulite.
How long do the results last?
You will see some improvement right away with optimal results apparent between 3-6 months. Since new collagen is formed in the areas treated with Cellulaze and the structures under the skin are altered, the results are long lasting. Clinical studies have shown results can last for one year or more. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy these excellent results.
