The Cellulaze™ Cellulite Laser is a minimally invasive device designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Using advanced SideLight 3D® technology, Cellulaze increases elasticity and thickness of the skin. Unlike other non-invasive treatments that merely provide temporary treatment, offers long-term results in just one session.
When the laser is fired, the laser energy breaks up the tough bands beneath the skin that cause us to see cellulite. This treatment can also thicken your skin, which is beneficial. When cellulite forms the skin often thins so by thickening the skin it will reduce the appearance of cellulite.
If you think you’re alone, don’t. About 90% of women have cellulite, as well as 10% of men. As women get closer to menopause, estrogen starts to decrease. Estrogen has an impact on blood vessels; when estrogen begins to decrease, you lose receptors in blood vessels and thighs, and as a result you have decreased circulation. Decreased circulation causes less oxygen and nutrients to reach certain areas of your body, which eventually impacts collagen production. During this time, fat cells start becoming larger and begin protruding through the collagen, which creates the appearance of bumpy fat, otherwise known as cellulite.
Cellulite can be attributed to several physiological changes that occur as women age, including: undulations caused by hardening of the tissue underneath the skin, an increase in the number/size of the fat cells beneath the skin, and the stretching of connective tissue under the skin because of weight gain or aging. These changes cause herniation and depressions within the skin, creating the dimples we know as cellulite.
