Cellulite Removal Atlanta

What is Cellulite?

View Article

Cellulite is the appearance of lumps and dimples on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, hips, and arms that occurs in 80% of people after adolescence. It is causes by fibrous bands that connect the skin to underlying tissue. Fat pockets get caught in between these stiff bands, causing the waviness and bumps that are seen on the skin surface.

Can Cellulite be treated?

There have been numerous attempts to treat cellulite with creams, mechanical massage, radiofrequency-generated heat, fat-dissolving injections and liposuction surgery. None of these techniques have been successful long-term for cellulite treatment because they do not address the cause of cellulite – the fibrous banding that holds the skin down. Two FDA-cleared procedures have been proven to have long-term success with the elimination of cellulite -Cellulaze and Cellfina – and Dr. Marisa Lawrence is pleased to be able to offer both of these treatments to her patients.

How do Cellulaze and Cellfina work?

Both systems cut the bands that cause the dimpling, releasing the skin. Cellulaze is a minimally-invasive laser that releases the fibrous bands that cause cellulite. The laser energy delivered also increases skin thickness and melts the fat pockets, which causes flattening and smoothing of the skin surface. The Cellfina device has a small suction stabilizer and a handpiece that mechanically destroys the troublesome bands. Cellfina is preferentially used where there are deeper dimples and less fat to be removed. Both Cellulaze and Cellfina are minimally-invasive procedures that can be performed in Dr. Marisa Lawrence’s office in under an hour, depending on the sites treated.

How many treatments with Cellulaze and Cellfina are necessary?

Each area only requires one treatment of Cellulaze or Cellfina.

Both Cellulaze and Cellfina will improve the appearance of cellulite on the thighs, hips, buttock, abdomen, and arms. Patients with deeper dimples and less fat will benefit more from Cellfina. Patients who desire liposculpting at the same time as their cellulite removal may be a better candidate for Cellulaze.
