How Cellulaze Works

Cellulaze is a minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structure of cellulite beneath your skin. It delivers longer-lasting results after only one short treatment.

A very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) is inserted under the skin. Cynosure’s unique SideLaze™ laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. This increases the thickness and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull it down—minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite. The laser stimulates collagen production to increase your skin’s depth and elasticity for a smoother look. Finally, the liquefied fat is gently pressed out. The entire procedure should take about 1–1.5 hours.

After your procedure you’ll have some bruising and discomfort, and small amounts of fluid may leak from the incision sites. Your physician may ask you to wear a compression garment to help with the healing process. You’ll be able to go back to your normal activities after a day or two and resume more strenuous exercise after one to two weeks. Your results will continue to improve for the next three to twelve months. By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen you will continue to enjoy the results of your Cellulaze treatment.
