After you’ve dieted and exercised and still received no relief from pesky, stubborn cellulite, you may have feel like giving up. However, there’s an advanced, highly effective treatment for cellulite, Cellulaze. Offered by board-certified San Francisco, CA plastic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Gray, Cellulaze targets the underlying skin structures responsible for cellulite. FDA-approved, the treatment is safe and well-tolerated for most patients.
After Dr. Gray makes tiny incision in the treatment area, a special laser fiber is inserted into the skin to smoothen areas of cellulite and releases thick, fibrous bands that are responsible for the appearance of cellulite. As a result, skin is smoother and tighter after just one treatment with long-standing results.
During a Cellulaze procedure, small incisions about the size of a pen tip allow the laser fiber to be inserted under the area where cellulite exists. This temperature-regulated laser is used to smoothen cellulite bulges using the laser to melt the fat cells. During this process, the laser fiber releases energy under the skin, which stimulates new collagen growth. It continues to release fibrous bands resulting with a thicker, smoother quality of skin. Over time, new fibrous straps continue to develop under the skin creating a new and freshly formed skin structure and softer appearance.
"Fantastic - Highly Recommend - So happy!!! My experience with Dr. Gray and staff has been phenomenal - very personable, professional, informative and attentive.

"50 Shades of Grey - I went in for a breast revision to avoid any future complications. I switched from my 12 year old Saline implants to Silicone. I was very happy with my Saline implants plus there were no visible scars. In 2005 my Doctor was the first to innovative the nipple incision (not to be confused by the periareolar incision). Very pleased with my previous results without any hesitation I knew that Dr...."- X. / RealSelf / Dec 27, 2017
"BEST PLASTIC SURGEON EVER!!!!!! - There are no words that suffice to commend Dr. Gray's unbelievable work - truly impeccable and a work of artistry. I am incredibly hard to please, as I am a complete perfectionist myself. My family always teases me, as I never seem content with anything. I interviewed countless plastic surgeons and spent weeks on end researching doctors on the internet. Even though I am a mother of three..."- D. / RealSelf / Dec 25, 2017
"I would give 10stars if i could! Had my first set of implants about 10years ago that were utterly amazing by him. Always had comments how natural they were and best job anyone had seen. Fast forward, time to change and upgrade the girls. They are even more amazing than the first set. Went for the gummy bears high profile. So beautiful in everyway! Dr Gray knows what he is doing. I told him exactly what i Wanted in regards to size and cleavage and he made it happen!! I wanted to wait to write this review till i was a few months out and everything settled. I am not a big yelper but MUST give credit where it is due. My experience this go round was nothing short of stellar. I had breast aug and labiaplasty and everything looks amazing! I felt and feel so comfortable and confident in this man. Also i must share that I had a major medical emergency thru my healing process that had nothing to do with dr. Gray or plastic surgery. Was a female issue, that left me in critical condition. Had I not followed Dr Grays advise at a follow up and got directly to my ob/gyn it would have ended badly. I ended up in emergency surgery wich solved the issue that would have ended in devastation had i not gone to emergency on Dr Gs advice. I also wold like to mention, when i got the news i had to have emergency surgery i called Karen at the front desk, cuz no one knew of my private situation but Dr Grays office. I am BEYOND GREATFUL for the professionalism of this woman. I felt like i had a best friend who was a 911 operator on the phone. I was hysterical and she calmed me down as i drove myself to emergency surgery. It was one of the scariest experiences of my life, no family knew as i kept it private and she was like a guardian angel. Also Cherrise is like a breath of fresh air! Helped me with so much during this process and has such good energy and i know her word is GOLD! Anything i asked advice on was always on the money! Also Lalanya who i rmbr from 10 years ago is frgn awesome! i called panicking once about questions from healing and she soothed everything and everything she said was true.Shes been in the scene for a long time and KNOWS HER STUFF! STAFF IS BEYOND EXCEPTIONAL! energy is amazing. Dr Gray is IT in my eyes. He also is A MAGICIAN with ingectables! no one ever has been so thuro with botox or cheek fillers. and my lips! ARE GORGOUS! had disastorous results with lips and botox and this man lays you down like he is doing surgery for your ingectables and gets it perfect! He is a master at his craft. i will not go anywhere else for ingectables. Breasts and labiaplasty are GORGOUS! Thank you Dr Gray. YOU ALL ARE A GOD SEND! p.s. i feel Dr G is more than authentic. He spent so much time with me after my emergency surgery and i truly feel he cares. He was looking me in the eye and we had a long discussion, his concern was more than genuine .Also he overcame my fear with injectables so patient and he KNEW exactly what i wanted and delivered, this place will always hold a special place in my heart! THANK YOU! THIS MAN IS ON POINT!!!!"- K.B. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2017

This procedure uses tiny incisions, just large enough to insert the laser tip. It is considered an outpatient treatment and is typically performed using local anesthesia. The patient will be able to go back to their normal routine a few hours after the procedure, and back to more strenuous activities within several days. According to surveys, 93% of patients report that they are satisfied, or very satisfied, with the results.
How Effective is Cellulaze?
The technology behind Cellulaze has been tested over and over. There are many actual cases of patients who report that even after one full treatment, long-term results are achieved. Studies have shown that this technology improves skin thickness by 25% and elasticity by 29%. This gives the skin a smoother appearance. This procedure is highly recommended for those who do not necessarily desire fat removal (i.e. through surgical liposucton), but instead, they desire a treatment to specifically address cellulite.
A Cellulaze treatment typically takes 1 to 2 hours. It is done under local anesthesia with a tiny cannula inserted in very small incisions to work on the fibrous bands and fat pockets underneath the skin. The length of the procedure depends mainly on the thickness and spread of the cellulite area to be treated.
The recovery period is quick after a Cellulaze treatment since the incisions made are minimal. The only noticeable discomfort will be redness and numbness in the areas of treatment. Scarring is also minimal with this procedure. Compression bandages are worn to help relieve pain and discomfort. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within 3 days.
Probably the most noteworthy fact regarding Cellulaze, is that over time, patients will continue to see results. This is due to the advanced collagen growth that takes place under the skin. Continued results are usually the most evident between 1 to 3 years after treatment.
