How does Cellulaze work for cellulite?
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive treatment that utilizes laser energy to heat and release the connective bands of tissue while melting away excess fatty tissue to minimize the appearance of unsightly cellulite bumps and dimples. During each treatment, which typically takes about an hour, depending on the size of the target area, a thin wand is inserted beneath the skin via a tiny incision. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area and ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure. After treatment, patients should start to notice an improvement in the texture of their skin within about three months as new, healthy collagen supplies develop.
Where can Cellulaze be used?
Some of the most common treatment areas for nonsurgical cellulite reduction with Cellulaze include the hips, stomach, legs, and buttocks.

During an initial Cellulaze consultation, Dr. Sotomayor and our knowledgeable team will assess your concerns and recommend a customized treatment plan for you. Additional Cellulaze treatments can be performed to further boost and maintain your results.
