Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved the latest laser treatment device Cellulaze as the first minimally invasive solution for treating the physiological structure of cellulite in women. Developed by Cynosure, Inc., Cellulaze utilizes laser fiber and heating technology to reduce cellulite, or fat deposits beneath the surface of skin around the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Christine Petti, MD, one of five clinical trial participants in the United States involved in the testing of Cellulaze, has now unveiled the product at her practice for plastic surgery in Los Angeles and says she is excited about the proven results in body sculpting and skin tightening for her patients. As part of the research phase and FDA approval of the device, Dr. Petti says she has seen dramatic improvements in cellulite reduction with Cellulaze.
Targeting herniated pockets of fat beneath the skin, the Cellulaze procedure requires one treatment and results are typically visible within a few weeks, although the most significant results may continue to develop over a few months following the procedure. Dr. Petti says the procedure is performed by inserting a tiny laser fiber under the skin to heat and disrupt the fat, release fibrous bands that dimple skin, and stimulate collagen production. She says Cellulaze offers patients a minimally-invasive treatment for cellulite with little to no downtime and effective results.
Dr. Petti says she hopes the new procedure will provide patients at her practice yet another alternative for sculpting their figure and improving self confidence. She adds that as patients consider the number of cosmetic options available for enhancing their appearance, she urges them to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing any aesthetic procedure such as Cellulaze in Los Angeles.
