There are so many different laser cellulite treatments on the market that it can be hard to figure out which one will work best for you. At Reflections Center for Skin & Body, we offer four of the most popular and effective cellulite laser treatments. Our specialists will explore these options in regards to your wants and needs to create the best plan for you. Here’s a brief overview of our different options:
Cellulaze – This skin smoothing laser cellulite treatment attacks the three main problems responsible for cellulite: skin width, bulging fat, and connective tissue fibers. The hallmark peaks and valleys of cellulite are smoothed by releasing the connective fibers of the fat cells, while increasing the skin’s natural thickness and elasticity. This is a minimally invasive procedure that only requires one visit!
VelaShape – VelaShape is a noninvasive combination of infrared light energy, radiofrequency and tissue kneading penetrates deeply enough to improve surface skin abnormalities and take some circumference off of the thighs and buttocks. This cellulite laser treatment entails a series of around six treatments but requires no down time at all. Many patients will experience smoother and firmer skin after just one treatment.
Thermage – This noninvasive laser cellulite treatment is very similar to VelaShape, however only requires a single treatment session. Radiofrequency energy heats up fat deposits beneath the skin to smooth and contour the body. Results may take several months after a treatment session to gradually appear.
Exilis – Also similar to VelaShape and Thermage, this scientifically proven treatment uses radiofrequency energy to increase metabolic activity which shrinks fat cells and stimulates the skin’s collagen network. The long lasting results of this laser cellulite treatment typically require three to six treatments with no down time.
Come in for a consultation to see which will work best for you, and look forward to beach weather again!
