CelluSmooth is a new, minimally invasive laser treatment targeting lumpy and dimpled skin. Long long-lasting results. Results in as early as one month and patients can return to everyday activities quickly. CelluSmooth offers help for a condition which affects more than 85% of women.
Cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue called septae, causing the skin above it to pucker. While cellulite isn’t harmful, many people would like to get rid of it because of the way it looks.
Having cellulite doesn’t mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have it. Cellulite is more common among women than men. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too.
CelluSmooth works by passing a small laser fiber through the tissues, which cuts the fibrous bands causing the dimpled appearance of the skin. The laser is then used to melt the uneven layer of fat just beneath the skin, smoothing the fat layer below and tightening the skin above.
CellusSmooth is performed in an office setting, using local anesthetic. Some patients may want to take a mild sedative prior to the procedure to feel more relaxed. The entire procedure takes between and hour and an hour and a half for most patients. After the procedure, patients wear a snug compressive garment for about two weeks. There will be some soreness which is easily controlled with medication and will resolve in a few days.
Results may be apparent is as early as one month however, it may take 4-6 months to see the final results.
