Cellulaze Chevy Chase, MD
Laser Cellulite Reduction–Bare It All Again!
You’ve tried diet and exercise. No matter how many pounds you lose or how often you frequent the gym, cellulite may still be a problem. It’s not your fault, since diet and exercise can’t address the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin and cause that dimpled appearance of cellulite.
You’ve tried creams and massage. No matter how many lotions or creams you try, you can’t seem to get rid of it. That’s because creams only work superficially, on the surface of the skin. To make matters worse, you have to apply them constantly or your cellulite returns.
You’ve tried hiding it. Covering up has been the only way to conquer cellulite. Until now: Cellulaze can treat what was once considered untreatable.
Cellulaze is a unique treatment that uses laser energy to:
- Disrupt trapped pockets of fat
- Release fibrous brands that pull down on the skin
- Stimulate collagen growth, for thicker, more elastic and healthier looking skin
How Does Cellulaze Work?
A very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) is inserted under the skin. Cynosure’s unique SideLight laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin.
This increases the depth and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull it down–minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite.
Finally, the laser is used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude through the fibrous bands under your skin.
Is Cellulaze Right for Me?
Cellulaze delivers the best results for patients who are not significantly overweight, but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Tina West to find out if Cellulaze is the right treatment for you.
Does Cellulaze Really Work?
Cellulaze is backed by two years of clinical research. Studies have shown that it increases the thickness of your skin by 25 percent and that elasticity of your skin by 29 percent–significant claims that have not been made by any other treatment.
Thicker and mroe elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin’s surface to improve the appearance of cellulite.
How Long Do the Results Last?
You’ll see some improvement right away with optimal results apparent between three to six months.
Since new collagen is formed in the areas treated with Cellulaze and the structures under the skin are altered… results are lasting.
Clinical studies have shown results can last for one year or more.
However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the excellent results.
Actual Patient Review on RealSelf.com:
Dr. West and her entire staff are very pleasant and professional. I felt like they care about me as a person and a patient. They were very responsive (especially Tracy, she is awesome) to all my many questions and concerns. They even offered to re-touch the spot I feel does not show any results if after some more time passes, I’m still not happy. Dr. West is also is very adept at the procedure. I felt like I was in very good hands, and did not feel at all that she was “too rough” or anything with the laser; the actual laser use seemed to go smoothly, no pun intended. I would recommend Dr. West.
