Cellulaze™ Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite affects an estimated 85% of women over 20, causing dimples, depressions, and bumps on the skin, commonly known as the “cottage cheese” appearance. However, thanks to the newest treatment in cellulite reduction, women may no longer have to simply accept cellulite as an untreatable issue.
Thanks to the recent FDA approval of Cellulaze™, board-certified plastic surgeon Tiffany McCormack, MD is now able to treat cellulite on the hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks with effective results in a single treatment. The procedure has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite better than other methods that typically require multiple treatment sessions. Studies also show Cellulaze™ results can last up to three years or more, creating a smoother appearance to the skin.

Causes of Cellulite
Cellulite typically affects women more than men due to physiological differences between the way their bodies distribute fat. The formation of cellulite depends on several factors, including the effects of aging, genetics, hormones, and skin thickness.
In women, pockets of fat can push connective tissue beneath the skin closer to the surface, causing the dimples and bumps commonly associated with cellulite. Until the development of Cellulaze™, few treatments existed that were able to effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The Cellulaze™ Process
Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive procedure that has been scientifically shown to reduce cellulite in a single treatment. By creating very small incisions that are roughly the size of a ballpoint pen, Dr. McCormack is able to insert a tiny fiber-optic laser that releases the fibrous bands responsible for cellulite.
The procedure works in three distinct ways, which allow Dr. McCormack to address the dimpling of the skin, level out any bumps, and stimulate collagen production. The excess fat in the area is liquefied and suctioned out, resulting in a smoother appearance and less cellulite. The procedure typically takes 1 to 1.5 hours depending on the size the area to be treated.
With Cellulaze™, there is virtually no downtime as patients are typically able to resume daily activities directly after the procedure. While some bruising may occur in the treated areas, this should fade within a few days. The results of the procedure will be noticeable within four weeks of the treatment, and continue to improve over the next three to twelve months, with some cases lasting up to three years or more.
