Advanced Cellulite Treatment
Cellulaze™ Long Island
If you wish to significantly reduce cellulite anywhere on your body, Cellulaze™ is offered through our Long Island practice to help you achieve a smooth, rejuvenated skin texture.
Cellulite occurs because of circumstances beyond your control, which can make this dimpling of the skin on the thighs and buttocks especially frustrating. Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., F.A.C.S can help you overcome cellulite with Cellulaze™, a new treatment that targets cellulite at its source, which lies below the skin. Using fiber optic laser technology, this procedure reduces the dimpling effect of cellulite while stimulating collagen production for a thicker, smoother, and more elastic skin tone.
If you are ready to feel more comfortable in your own skin, contact our Long Island practice to learn more about the benefits of Cellulaze™.
The Cellulaze™ Procedure
Cellulite occurs when bands of connective tissue beneath your skin harden, while surrounding fat cells increase in size and push upward, resulting in the dreaded “cottage cheese” effect. Cellulaze™ targets the bands of connective tissue to dramatically reduce the indentations that appear on the skin’s surface. The procedure begins with the administration of a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. Next, two very tiny incisions are made, each about the size of the tip of an ink pen. The Cellulaze™ laser fibers are threaded through a cannula (a very small tube) that is inserted through the incision site. The laser releases the bands of connective tissue and levels the larger bumps of fat. Meanwhile, the thermal energy produced by the laser stimulates collagen production (collagen is a group of natural proteins that give skin its youthful elasticity). During this process, some of the fat cells will liquefy, and they will be gently pressed out from beneath the skin. In total, the Cellulaze™ procedure typically takes between one and one-and-a-half hours to complete.
