Will Lipedema Treatment Treat Cellulite?
Almost 11 percent of women suffer from lipedema, a condition that causes fat to accumulate disproportionately on the legs, abdomen, and arms. Lipedema can be quite painful, as well as embarrassing. Additionally, lipedema fat is highly-resistant to diet and exercise. While the underlying causes of lipedema are largely unknown, this condition is common and often misdiagnosed.
Being told to just diet and exercise – which does not resolve the fatty deposits associated with lipedema – can leave you feeling hopeless and misunderstood. With our Los Angeles cellulite treatment performed at Advanced Lipedema Treatment Center, you can begin to take charge of your body – and the rest of your life. If you suffer from lipedema, cellulite treatment with Cellulaze may be one aspect of a comprehensive treatment plan.
What is Cellulaze?
Cellulaze is a revolutionary procedure developed to treat the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite, which is prevalent in patients with lipedema, is created by bands of connective tissue which make a grid pattern beneath the skin, leading to the dimpled pattern on the surface we call “cellulite.” When treated with Cellulaze, three symptoms are addressed:
- Thin skin
- Bands of connective tissue creating the uneven skin surface
- Fatty deposits beneath the skin
Cellulaze can address these aesthetic problems in a single treatment, impossible with other cellulite treatments, such as massage, external energy devices, creams, or lotions. With Cellulaze, you can banish unsightly cellulite for the long term. Treatments with Cellulaze are clinically proven to increase the thickness of skin by 25 percent and increase skin elasticity by 29 percent – results far above and beyond the results of other cellulite treatments available in the USA. Results continue to improve over the three to twelve months following treatment.
How does Cellulaze work?
Cellulaze addresses the core of the cellulite problem. Through a unique SideLazeTM technology, Cellulaze delivers laser energy directly beneath the skin. This works to stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin to create thicker, smoother, healthier skin while delivering subcutaneous heat energy to melt away stubborn fat and release the bands of connective tissue that create the unsightly lumps and bumps of cellulite. Liquified fat is gently removed.
What are the benefits of Cellulaze?
Cellulaze is the only treatment of its kind which has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of cellulite. It is clinically proven to produce smoother, firmer-looking skin. Unlike topical treatments which claim to smooth the appearance of cellulite, Cellulaze addresses the fibrous matrix beneath the skin that creates the uneven texture associated with cellulite. Once cellulite’s three factors have been addressed, you will see a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your skin.
What should I expect during treatment with Cellulaze?
Your Beverly Hills cellulite reduction procedure will be performed in the comfort and privacy of our facilities under local anesthesia, so you are comfortable and relaxed. A very small incision will be made through which tiny cannula is inserted beneath the skin. Then, powerful laser energy will be delivered to the treatment area using SideLazeTM laser fibers. This energy will work simultaneously to melt stubborn fat deposits and release the connective tissue in this area, while stimulating the body to increase production of collagen and elastin. The procedure requires only about one to two hours to complete, based upon the areas being treated.
Is there any downtime or recovery needed?
You may experience mild swelling and bruising immediately following treatment with Cellulaze. A compression garment should be worn in the early stages of healing. Most patients return to their normal activities a day or two after treatment.
