Walk into any drug store and you will no doubt find a number of cellulite treatments and remedies, but almost all popular topical treatments on the market fall victim to the same shortcoming: collagen molecules, which these products are full of, never make it to the tissues that create the appearance of cellulite. This is contrary to our highly effective treatment: Cellulaze® in Beverly Hills.

Although the effects are seen on the skin surface, cellulite exists below the skin and must be treated below the skin in order to create any lasting change. Although creams and treatments may be full of collagen, the collagen molecules are actually too large to effectively penetrate the surface of the skin and therefore can only affect the surface of the skin. Most of these products make only minute changes, by moisturizing the surface skin and reducing the signs of cellulite.

Why is Cellulaze® different?

Cellulaze® is a minimally invasive treatment backed by science and built on a record of real results. Patients who are treated with Cellulaze® show improvements in the appearance of cellulite for up to a full year or more. Our Los Angeles Cellulaze® treatments work by bombarding the tissue with thermal energy that can tighten the skin, increase elasticity, and can actually induce the production of natural collagen.

After a single Cellulaze® treatment, which lasts about one hour, patients will begin to notice tightening of the skin and increases in elasticity that can be maintained or continue to improve for as long as a year or more. The appearance of cellulite may continue to decrease for 3-6 months and some patients report continued reduction in appearance of cellulite even 9 months after treatment.

Cellulaze® is the first FDA approved treatment for cellulite. 9 out of 10 patients report satisfaction with the Cellulaze® treatment and the majority of patients would recommend Cellulaze® to a friend. In the US, more than 75% of women experience cellulite, and because Cellulaze® is such a life changing yet simple treatment, it is fast becoming one of the staples of the cosmetic medical field.

The doctors at Spalding Drive Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills are pleased to be able to offer patients a safe and effective treatment for cellulite and the opportunity to introduce more people to the amazing Cellulaze® system.

Details of the procedure

As a first step during your Beverly Hills Cellulaze®, you client will receive a topical anesthetic that numbs the skin. Next, several minute incisions are created to accommodate a slender tube known as a cannula. Laser energy is routed through the cannula, emulsifying the fat cells. The doctor then removes the melted, trapped fat. The laser heat is also excellent at breaking up the stiff, fibrous banding that keeps the fat locked in. Additionally, laser energy works to trigger collagen growth, which helps the skin to reveal a more youthful and vital glow. The entire Cellulaze® process typically takes 30 minutes to one hour, depending on how much surface area is targeted by the laser.

Who is the ideal candidate for Cellulaze®?

Women who are at a healthy weight for their frame, but who suffer from unwanted cellulite in their bellies, thighs, buttocks and hips are the ideal candidates for treatment with Cellulaze®. If a client is overweight and plans to shed the extra pounds, it may be best to wait until after weight loss to undergo Cellulaze®. Each patient's age, genetics, skin elasticity, fat distribution and skin thickness will also be evaluated by the doctor as part of the consultation process to determine if our Los Angeles Cellulaze® is the right treatment for your needs.
