According to a March 12, 2013 ABC News article, Cellulaze is a new device physicians are using to treat the dimpled and nodular appearance of cellulite. (Go to:goo.gl/SFj24)
“Cellulite has numerous causes including genetics, hormones, and aging, and afflicts thin women as well as heavy women” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Regardless of the source, cellulite is something most women are desperate to be rid of, so I’m hopeful that Cellulaze will be able to continue to demonstrate long-term effectiveness.”
The Cellulaze treatment is typically administered while the patient is under a local anesthetic. A small tube, known as a cannula, is inserted through tiny incisions in the skin and is manipulated to slice connective tissue bands that become tight and inflexible, causing cellulite.
The goal of the treatment is to even out lumps of fat and reduce dimples. Dimpling is caused when underlying fibrous bands of connective tissue pull down the skin, and the procedure is supposed to release the bands and eliminate this symptom of cellulite. A successful procedure may be characterized by additional collagen production, and this should lead to improved skin depth, greater elasticity, and a smoother appearance overall. Typical procedure time is under two hours.
A clinical study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal indicates that the appearance of cellulite after only one treatment of Cellulaze showed improvement for an entire year (Go to: goo.gl/uI1mq). Additional data from the study published on Cellulaze’s website indicates significant improvements in the quality of the skin; Cellulaze was shown to increase skin thickness by 25 percent and skin elasticity by 29 percent (Go to goo.gl/ZndIO).
“The data so far is good,” concludes Dr. Ourian, “but the study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal was limited in scope. I expect the company is working on additional supporting data that I look forward to reviewing.”
Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
