FAQ

Cellulaze delivers the best results for women who are not significantly overweight but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs. Please talk to your Cellulaze practitioner to get the best information on cellulite laser treatments.

There are countless treatments that claim to get rid of cellulite, such as massage, external energy devices, creams and lotion, but they only treat cellulite superficially by working at the skin’s surface. These treatments require either daily or weekly applications and results are often inconsistent. Cellulaze treats the actual problems underneath the skin to deliver a proven longer-lasting result from just one simple treatment.

Cellulaze is backed by many years of clinical research. Studies have shown it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%1—significant claims that can’t be made by many other cellulite treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin surface to improve the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results at one year post their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment to a friend.

The incision sites will be very small. With proper care, any scars will be barely noticeable. Your physician can evaluate your skin type and provide the best information on scar prevention.

Some light bruising may occur, but you’ll be able to return to normal activities within a day or two. Your physician may ask you to wear a compression garment for a short period after treatment.
