Cellulite Treatment Q & A

What causes Cellulite?

Want to permanently eliminate cellulite? Understanding the cause of cellulite is the best place to begin. The medical term for cellulite is dermatomyoliposcerlosis, and is a medical condition most often found in the hips, legs and buttocks of women.

Cellulite begins to occur when the structure of fat cells weaken and sag. Since these fat cells are surrounded by bands of connective tissue, the swelling of weak fat cells causes the tissue pulls the skin down as the fat begins to bulge outward. This gives the skin its dimpled appearance.

What is Cellulaze?

Cellulaze is the only FDA-approved cellulite removal device to permanently remove cellulite. Unlike other cellulite laser devices, Cellulaze attacks the very structure of cellulite. It is clinically proven to increase your skin’s natural thickness for smoother, healthier looking skin that lasts.

What are the Benefits of Cellulaze?

Cellulite removal has never been easier with the introduction of Cellulaze. With just one treatment, Cellulaze removes cellulite. Benefits of cellulite removal with Cellulaze include:

  • Cellulaze is a onetime treatment.
  • Cellulaze results are permanent.
  • There is little pain during the Cellulaze process.
  • Cellulaze promotes skin thickening.
  • Cellulaze tightens and smoothes skin.

What makes Cellulaze different is that it actually targets the underlying causes of cellulite beneath the skin, as opposed to just working on the surface of the skin as creams and non-invasive procedures do.

How does Cellulaze Work?

Cellulaze is superior to other cellulite laser treatments because it targets the underlying structures that cause cellulite. Cellulite reduction is achieved with a tiny tube that is inserted beneath your skin. Laser energy is then delivered through this tube to attack the fibrous tissues and fat that cause cellulite.

The cellulite reduction laser causes a thickening of the skin and cuts the fibrous bands that pull the skin down and create the “cottage cheese” dimpling on the surface of the skin. At the same time, it reduces fatty deposits that bulge through the fibrous bands. The entire Cellulaze process takes about an hour.

Why Choose Cellulaze?

There are many reasons to choose Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment. Not only does Cellulaze permanently eliminate cellulite, it also thickens the skin and improves elasticity. Since it is a minimally-invasive cellulite reduction, there is little downtime.

Diet and exercise alone are rarely enough to diminish the appearance of cellulite. To reduce cellulite safely and effectively, choose Cellulaze performed by the doctors at The Doc Spa in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Reducing cellulite is simple when you choose the talented doctors at The Doc Spa to perform your cellulite laser treatment. Drs. Lui & Rowe have trained with a renowned Cellulaze doctor, Dr. Christine Petti, and are proud to bring safe, effective Cellulaze to New Mexico.

How can I reduce cellulite?

Fat is not the only culprit to cellulite. Cellulite is a structural problem beneath the skin, so it needs to be treated beneath the skin. Creams and other non-invasive devices are not enough to treat the problem of cellulite permanently, but minimally-invasive Cellulaze is the best way to get smooth, dimple-free skin.

Cellulaze Process

You’ve read about the wonderful benefits of Cellulaze to remove cellulite at The Doc Spa. Now that you know the basics, you’re probably wondering how the Cellulaze process works. Here’s what you can expect with this state-of-the-art cellulite laser treatment at our Albuquerque medical spa:

  • Your physician will mark the places to remove cellulite.
  • Local anesthesia or a numbing solution is applied.
  • A few of tiny incisions, about the size of a pen tip, will be made.
  • The Cellulaze laser fiber is threaded through a small tube (cannula) and inserted through the incision site.
  • Your physician will use the SideLight™ 3D Cellulaze laser fiber to:
    • Level bumps of fat
    • Treat dimples by removing the fibrous bands that pull down the skin
    • Stimulate collagen production to increase your skin’s depth and elasticity, creating a smoother look.
  • The liquefied fat is gently pressed out.
  • The entire process should take about 1-1.5 hours.

The Cellulaze process shouldn’t be painful and there is little downtime associated with the procedure—typically our patients can return to work within a few days. Cellulaze results continue to improve over the next 3 to 12 months.

Incredible, Permanent Cellulite Removal

So what can you expect from Cellulaze? The dimples of the treated area will diminish or disappear altogether. Your skin will increase its thickness and improve its elasticity, leaving you with smoother skin that looks years younger. See our page about why you should choose Cellulaze to understand all of the benefits of this procedure.

Minimally-Invasive Cellulite Removal

Cellulaze typically takes about an hour to perform. Because Cellulaze incisions are so small, you will not require stitches. The experience shouldn’t be painful, although there may be some itching and bruising following the procedure. Local anesthetic or a numbing agent is used in the Cellulaze cellulite removal process.

Aftercare for Cellulaze

We typically recommend rest for about 24 hours after the procedure. Typically, our patients are able to return to work and their normal routine 1 to 2 days after the procedure. Healing is quick and your Cellulaze results will continue to improve over the next 6 months.
