Cellulaze for cellulite reduction is an FDA approved procedure that provides for a significant long term reduction with a single treatment. Unlike other attempts at cellulite therapy, Cellulaze allows for a significant long term improvement in the appearance of cellulite after a single treatment. In the initial FDA studies treatment results persist at one year. Follow up of these initial patients show continued benefits at three years.
One of the great appeals of Cellulaze therapy is that it can be carried out in the comfort and privacy of our Chicago and Winnetka offices under local anesthesia. In this regard it is similar to laser lipoplasty, one of the most popular procedures in my practice.
After carefully mapping the contours of the areas of cellulite I inject local anesthesia to the spots where I will make tiny entry points for the Cellulaze device. Through these openings I spread fluid with a local anesthetic into the zones that I will treat. Once this takes effect, the actual treatment has very little discomfort for most patients. Many patiens listen to music during treatment and a good number take a short nap.
Once treatment is over my team will help you into a support girdle similar to bikers shorts that most patients wear for two weeks.
With careful attention to detail, I and my team will do everything possible to make the Cellulaze experience optimal.
