There was a time when there weren’t many viable options for getting rid of cellulite and patients were stuck with lumpy, unattractive thighs. With modern technology, Cellulaze is a highly effective laser treatment that penetrates the skin to treat the structures responsible for cellulite. Seattle area plastic surgeon, Dr. Marosan, uses Cellulaze to increase the thickness of a patient’s skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite and after just one treatment, patients will notice a dramatic reduction. This procedure also increases skin elasticity for a smoother, more toned look.
During a Cellulaze procedure, small incisions about the size of a pen tip allow the laser fiber to be inserted under the area where cellulite exists. This temperature-regulated laser is used to smoothen cellulite bulges using the laser to melt the fat cells. During this process, the laser fiber releases energy under the skin, which stimulates new collagen growth. It continues to release fibrous bands resulting with a thicker, smoother quality of skin. Over time, new fibrous straps continue to develop under the skin creating a new and freshly formed skin structure and softer appearance.

This procedure uses tiny incisions, just large enough to insert the laser tip. It is considered an outpatient treatment and is typically performed using local anesthesia. The patient will be able to go back to their normal routine a few hours after the procedure, and back to more strenuous activities within several days. According to surveys, 93% of patients report that they are satisfied, or very satisfied, with the results.
How Effective is Cellulaze?
The technology behind Cellulaze has been tested over and over. There are many actual cases of patients who report that even after one full treatment, long-term results are achieved. Studies have shown that this technology improves skin thickness by 25% and elasticity by 29%. This gives the skin a smoother appearance. This procedure is highly recommended for those who do not necessarily desire fat removal (i.e. through surgical liposucton), but instead, they desire a treatment to specifically address cellulite.
A Cellulaze treatment typically takes 1 to 2 hours. It is done under local anesthesia with a tiny cannula inserted in very small incisions to work on the fibrous bands and fat pockets underneath the skin. The length of the procedure depends mainly on the thickness and spread of the cellulite area to be treated.
The recovery period is quick after a Cellulaze treatment since the incisions made are minimal. The only noticeable discomfort will be redness and numbness in the areas of treatment. Scarring is also minimal with this procedure. Compression bandages are worn to help relieve pain and discomfort. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within 3 days.
Probably the most noteworthy fact regarding Cellulaze, is that over time, patients will continue to see results. This is due to the advanced collagen growth that takes place under the skin. Continued results are usually the most evident between 1 to 3 years after treatment.
