New York, NY (PressExposure) May 17, 2012 -- "Over the years countless cellulite removal products have been developed," explains Dr. Diktaban, a Manhattan cosmetic surgeon. "Unfortunately these products either do nothing at all or provide only a slight, temporary improvement." In fact, millions of dollars are spent each year on creams, wraps, and massages that claim to eliminate or improve cellulite. Most products are completely ineffective, while others - particularly creams with caffeine - improve the appearance slightly while the product is being used. The reason some improvement may be noticed is because those creams moisturize the skin, and dry skin does make the cellulite more apparent. Once the treatments stop, however, any benefits experienced disappear.
That has changed with the development a new cellulite laser treatment called Cellulaze. "This product is radically different because it works under the skin, treating the cause of cellulite and not just the external appearance," Dr. Diktaban continues. "For the first time women now have an option which provides permanent cellulite removal." These sentiments are echoed by all of the doctors who have incorporated Cellulaze treatments into their practice.
Cellulite is something that develops in most women over the age of twenty in those areas which naturally have more fat cells directly under the skin, primarily the thighs, hips and buttocks. These cells are divided by fibers which constrict over time, pulling down on the skin. As a result, the fat in the cells pushes up against the skin, kind of like the air in a balloon that is pinched in the middle. As the skin becomes thin and dry over time, the lumps caused by this constriction become more apparent, creating the condition known as cellulite.
Unlike other treatments, Cellulaze treats all elements of cellulite. First, a small laser is inserted under the skin which cuts through the constricted fibers, releasing the pressure. Next, the laser gently warms the fatty tissue, melting it so it can be reshaped. Last, the laser is pointed at the skin, warming it and stimulating the natural collagen production which will improve the quality of the skin. "What is so exciting," the doctor continues, "is that this permanent cellulite treatment option is accomplished in only one, short out-patient treatment."
