Here’s a fact that may surprise you.
Cellulite is actually caused by factors outside your control. Many believe it’s a fat problem, which can be addressed through diet and exercise. But fat isn’t the only culprit. Cellulite is a structural problem below the skin. And while you may have tried every treatment possible, you've never had a way to treat the very structure of cellulite.
Some of the key opinion leaders who participated at the First Exclusive European Cellulaze Users Meeting at The Royal Soceity of Medicine were Mr Ayham Al-Ayoubi, Medical Director of the London Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in London and Mr Hassan Shabaan, Consultant Plastic Surgeon from Liverpool who presented treatment parameters, patient satisfaction and what the future holds for this new treatment.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi a Pioneer Cellulaze Laser in the UK had commuted at the meeting that Cellulaze is the only treatment that attacks the structural problems beneath the skin that cause cellulite.
A minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedure performed by a qualified Surgeon, Cellulaze is a new anti-cellulite treatment clinically proven to increase the skin's natural thickness for a smoother, healthier look that lasts. All from just one simple anti-cellulite treatment.
Patients can’t control these factors, regardless of how many miles they run or salads they eat. But they can control how they can treat cellulite. Many other anti-cellulite treatments focus on cellulite superficially, applying treatment above the skin. Only Cellulaze treats the fibrous bands beneath the skin, while also thickening and adding elasticity to the skin.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi explains: Cellulaze delivers results that last, and all it takes is a single anti-cellulite treatment. Here’s what patients can expect during the Cellulaze procedure:
- · The Surgeon will mark the areas of cellulite to be treated with a marker
- · A couple of tiny incisions will be made, about the size of the tip of a pen
- · Local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia is used
- · The Cellulaze laser fibre is threaded through a very small cannula and inserted through the incision site
- · Level out bumps of fat
- · Treat dimples by releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin
- · Stimulate collagen production to increase skin’s depth and elasticity for a smoother look
- · The liquefied fat is gently pressed out
- · The entire procedure should take about 1–1.5 hours
The market for cellulite reduction is high and has been previously served by non-invasive devices such as the Reaction by Viora, Velashape, and Smoothshapes.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi Said that Aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite. These factors can cause connective tissue bands under the skin to stiffen and the fat cells they surround to become larger and push up into the skin. And that creates the “cottage cheese” effect could eliminated by using Cellulaze Laser.
The newest addition to the battle against cellulite is Cellulaze, which differs from the non-invasive procedures by using laser technology. Under local or general anaesthesia, a small cannula is inserted under the skin and advanced SideLight 3D™ technology directs controlled laser energy to treat cellulite.
Designed to treat lumpy pockets of fat by releasing areas of skin depression and increasing elasticity and thickness of skin, the Cellulaze is one of the first lasers to hit the market to address cellulite. An added benefit is patients only require one treatment.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi Said: "With this revolutionary new Sidelight 3D optical fibre and Cellulaze laser, we are getting long lasting improvement in cellulite with only one treatment. This should be a major leap forward for the body contouring industry."
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi explains what to expect after the Cellulaze laser procedure:
- Patients will have some bruising and discomfort, and small amounts of fluid may leak from the incision sites. The Surgeon will ask you to wear a compression garments.
- Patients will be able to go back to normal activities after a day or two and resume more strenuous exercise after one to two week
- The results will continue to improve for the next three to twelve months
Cellulaze has been thoroughly investigated to ensure safer, more effective results. A clinical study showed that a single Cellulaze treatment improved the appearance of cellulite for one year with very few side effects.
Further, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results one year post-procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze treatment to a friend. The data also indicate compelling improvements in skin quality.
Thicker, more elastic skin can help improve the appearance of cellulite. Cellulaze was shown to increase skin thickness by 25%, and skin elasticity by 29% even after one year —significant claims that other anti-cellulite treatments don't make. In a qualified Surgeon's hands, Cellulaze gives a visibly smoother, healthier looking skin and an anti-cellulite treatment that last.

Cellulaze has received its CE Mark certification in Europe and become be available to Plastic and Laser Surgeons in the European Union 2011. It was first available the UK, France, Germany and Spain.
Also it become available in the US after the FDA has approved an Investigational Device Exemption ("IDE") for Cellulaze,
