Dr. Breitbart is proud to offer Cellulaze™, the revolutionary new FDA approved treatment for cellulite. Cellulaze™ is the first and only minimally invasive laser procedure which directly treats the causes of cellulite under the skin, and delivers long-lasting results in a single treatment.
Cellulite is the rippling and dimpling of skin, affecting at least 85% of women. Structural factors which cause cellulite include connective tissue bands surrounding fat cells and dimpling the skin, enlarged pockets of fat trapped by the bands and pushing against the skin, and thinning of the skin making the appearance of cellulite even worse. These can all contribute to the “cottage cheese” look of cellulite. Other factors which contribute to cellulite include aging, heredity, hormones, and weight changes.
Previous cellulite treatments, including creams, lotions, and skin surface therapies, had to be used repetitively, and only resulted in minimal temporary improvement of cellulite. Cellulaze™, however, directly treats the causes of cellulite under the skin, using a specially designed SideLight laser to release the connective tissue bands, reduce the fat pockets, and improve the quality of the skin. Cellulaze™ has been shown to deliver long-lasting results with only a single treatment. The procedure lasts about an hour and is performed under local anesthesia. Recover time is typically no more than 1-2 days.
There have been countless treatments used to treat cellulite, ranging from creams and lotions to massaging devices. All of these treatments work superficially on the surface of the skin, and at best offer minimal, temporary improvement after repetitive treatments. Cellulaze™ is the first and only minimally invasive procedure which directly treats the actual causes of cellulite under the skin, delivering proven long-lasting results in just one single treatment.
Cellulaze™ has been thoroughly investigated for several years. Clinical studies have shown Cellulaze™ to be a safe and effective treatment for cellulite, with continued improvement seen even after 3 years or more. Cellulaze™ has been shown to increase skin thickness by 25% and skin elasticity by 29% even after 1 year, resulting in a smoother healthier look of the skin. Furthermore, 93% of patients were satisified or very satisfied with their results after 1 year and would recommend Cellulaze™ to a friend.
Patients return to normal activities within a day or two after Cellulaze™. Significant improvement of the cellulite can be seen in less than 3 months, and the results will continue to improve for up to a year.
All procedures are performed by Dr. Breitbart in his office surgery center, which is certified by the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilites (AAAASF).
