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.

"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

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.
