Tough problem: This is a very difficult condition to treat and present options are generally short lived or only offer a partial correction.

Despite the Cynosure marketing, i do not really consider CELLULAZE minimally invasive. It is an invasive laser surgery that must be administered by a physician that: 1) targets deep fat by laser lipolysis, 2) accomplishes laser subcision of tethering fibrous septal and 3) contraction of the deeper layers of the dermis by thermal protein denaturing using laser energy. I have seen photos that show it may take nearly a year to see results.

Cellulaze: Cellulite is an annoying problem to millions of women. It is caused by an uneven superficial fat layer as well as tiny ligaments that hold the skin down. The only effective and fda approved treatment is called cellulaze by cynosure. It is a one time minimally invasive procedure that permanently removes cellulite.
