How Soon Will Cellulite Diminish After Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
Many people are self-conscious about their skin and feel the need to hide areas with cellulite. Now, there is a minimally invasive way to melt away fat and release the connective bands that cause dimpled skin. Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta is proud to offer Cellulaze™ to reduce cellulite and help you feel confident again.
So, how soon after cellulite treatment can you expect to see results? While most people see smoother skin in about three months, this timeline varies based on your needs and treatment areas. Dr. Gerry Sotomayor can explain our unique approach to cellulite removal when you come in for an assessment. Call our office in Norcross, GA to get started with Cellulaze.
How does cellulite form?
Cellulite forms when fat pushes up against connective tissues beneath the skin, causing an uneven or dimpled appearance. Genetics, hormone changes, weight gain, and age all play a role in the formation of cellulite.
Cellulite often affects areas like the hips, stomach, buttocks, or legs. While cellulite is not a medical issue, Atlanta area patients often get frustrated and avoid showing off their skin at the beach or pool. Traditional methods, like diet and exercise, also do very little to reduce cellulite.
How does Cellulaze reduce cellulite?
The Cellulaze system uses a very thin laser wand to melt excess fat and separate the fibrous bands that lead to cellulite. Dr. Sotomayor can perform the laser treatment in about an hour, and you may go home the same day. The majority of our patients near Peachtree Corners, Norcross, and Atlanta report minimal discomfort during treatment and return to normal activities almost right away.
Known benefits of Cellulaze include:
Faster and less invasive than traditional plastic surgery
Little to no downtime for recovery
Minimal discomfort during the procedure
Does cellulite removal cause any side effects?
Some patients experience temporary swelling and bruising at the treatment sites, but this typically goes away within a few days. Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta will provide you with specific instructions for avoiding complications and increasing your chances of success during recovery.
When will I see results from Cellulaze?
As we mentioned, patients should begin to notice results from Cellulaze about three months following laser treatment. Dr. Sotomayor can perform a quick skin assessment and may decide that you need several sessions to achieve optimal results. Either way, you can expect to see smoother skin that makes it easier to wear your favorite clothes again.
Is Cellulaze permanent?
Our patients also enjoy long-lasting results, with many people feeling more confident about their bodies well after laser treatment has ended. However, Cellulaze is not designed to produce permanent outcomes or prevent future cellulite from forming. Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta can make recommendations about when to return for additional sessions.
