Lehigh Valley, PA (PRWEB) August 03, 2012
Cellulaze™ is the only minimally-invasive laser procedure designed to reduce cellulite from beneath the skin. It delivers long-lasting results after only one short treatment and achieves the best results for women who are not significantly overweight but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs.
“Regardless of a patient’s exercise regimen or diet, cellulite is caused by other factors which the patient does not have control of,” says Dr. Thomas E. Young. “Factors such as aging, changes in hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes, can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite," Dr. Young says. “These factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen pushing the surrounding fat cells up into the skin creating a "dimpling" effect. Cellulaze™ uses a new, FDA approved laser energy device to treat the structural causes of cellulite.”
During the procedure, one or two tiny incisions are made just outside of the treatment area to allow the insertion a thin tube known as a “cannula”. The cannula contains a laser fiber that delivers laser energy to the fat layer targeting the fibrous bands of connective tissue below the surface of the skin. The laser beam smooths out the underlying layer of fat and separates the fibrous bands which connect the skin to the underlying muscle. These bands are what pulls the skin down creating the indentations and lumps on the skin's surface.
Finally, the Cellulaze™ laser beam is directed upward toward the undersurface of the skin to stimulate collagen production. This results in a smoother and more contoured appearance to the treated areas. The results continue to improve for up to 12 months as collagen deposition increases the skin's thickness and elasticity.
"Patients of Young Medical Spa® can appreciate our commitment to delivering cutting edge technology to the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. These newer technologies result in less invasive procedures with minimal downtime for our patients," Dr. Young says. "Cellulaze™ patients are able to return home the same day as treatment and are able to return to work or usual daily activities within a few days. Only one treatment session is required in order to see a significant benefit."
This new technology goes beyond traditional treatments for cellulite, straight to the root of the problem, to reduce the appearance of cellulite. “I am excited to be able to offer my patients a one-stop option for all of their aesthetic needs and the Cellulaze™ allows me to more effectively treat their cellulite with longer lasting results in just one procedure.”
Dr. Young is committed to providing the latest techniques for aesthetic enhancement. He offers patients treatment options that he believes are the most effective solutions for specific concerns. In addition, he frequently combines procedures to help achieve more dramatic results that will help patients look and feel their best.
