The perfect candidate for this treatment has these problems:
As with any aesthetic procedure, having realistic expectations is important. At our practice, we value honesty, integrity, and educating our patients. We are happy to discuss this treatment, which we feel is the most effective treatment for improving the appearance of cellulite available today. Every patient is different in skin quality, thickness, and the degree of dimpling, and age plays a role. All of these issues will be discussed with you prior to treatment. Our patients report they are very happy with the results – and we want to help you, no matter what your age or condition. We offer a range of treatments, and are pleased to provide Cellulaze to our array of surgical and non-surgical body treatments.
The Cellulaze laser treatment addresses the actual cause of cellulite, attacking the under-skin structure to diminish the appearance of cellulite dimples, bumps, and bulges. It is a single treatment with results that can last up to a year or longer. Dr. Vistnes performs the Cellulaze treatment with a miniature fiber optic laser inserted through tiny incisions in the targeted areas. The laser levels out bump and lumps of cellulite by releasing the fibrous bands under the skin that cause dimpling, while stimulating natural collagen production for smoother, firmer skin.
The entire Cellulaze procedure takes about one to one and-a-half hours to complete and is performed on an outpatient basis. The treatment is not painful, as the area being treated will be numbed for your comfort.
After your procedure, you can return home immediately. Recovery is quick and you can resume most normal activities within a couple of days. Some bruising and discomfort is typical after a Cellulaze treatment, but it is usually described by our patients as being very mild. You may be asked to wear a compression garment for a few days to help speed healing and reduce swelling.
After about 3 weeks, the results of your treatment will start to become visible, with improvements continuing to develop during the following three to twelve months. You will enjoy skin with better tone and fewer surface irregularities. Depressions gradually level out and your body contour will appear firmer, sleeker and more appealing.
Cellulaze is the first treatment for cellulite approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that attacks the problem at its very source – beneath the skin. Dr. Vistnes was one of the first plastic surgeons in the USA to be trained on this remarkable procedure after it gained FDA approval, and is happy to offer this groundbreaking treatment to his patients. With Cellulaze, you can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite and achieve long-lasting improvement in skin smoothness and a firmer, healthier quality.
