Here is a story that is sure to interest many women (and men) about the latest and greatest cellulite treatment. Cynosure, a leading aesthetic device manufacturer, has developed a laser specifically designed to target cellulite, the Cellulaze Cellulite Laser Workstation. The Cellulaze laser is a minimally-invasive treatment that directly treats and repairs the sub-cutaneous tissue which is the root cause of cellulite. Read a segment from the official press release:
Cellulite is caused by several physiological changes as women age including: 1) an increase in the number or size of fat cells pushing up through the tissue beneath the skin; 2) thin connective tissue under the skin that becomes stretched or distended as a result of aging or weight gain; and 3) undulations caused by hardening of tissue underneath the skin.
In the Cellulaze procedure, which is performed under a local anesthetic, the physician inserts a small cannula – a narrow tube the size of the tip of a pen – under the skin. Cynosure’s proprietary SideLight 3D™ side-firing technology directs controlled, laser thermal energy to the treatment zones – typically the buttocks and thighs. The laser is designed to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat, release the areas of skin depression and increase the elasticity and thickness of the skin. Patients require just one treatment.
Although not yet approved by the FDA for use in the United States at this time, it is likely that the Cellulaze workstation will be granted approval in the coming months.
