Cellulaze laser treatment to help fix your bugbear and get you in shape for summer... Spa Secret magazine explores…
You don’t have to be overweight to suffer from unsightly cellulite (it affects around 85% of women over 20 years old) and once it makes an appearance, it’s notoriously stubborn to shift. Cellulaze is a minimally invasive treatment that was introduced to the UK last year, offered under local anesthetic. It uses a pulsed laser to attack the dimpled fat tissue in three steps. The laser (attached to a cannula or tube) is first inserted just beneath the skin via small (0.5cm) incisions and pointed down to melt excess fat lying beneath the epidermis.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi:Next it is angled horizontally to cut through the stiffened fibrous bands, releasing the valleys that cause the orange peel effect. Finally, the laser is placed in an up position to thicken and elasticize the top layer of the skin, smoothing out the surface for tight and toned skin. Expect to be tender and swollen for a few days and you’ll have to wear s compression garment to aid the healing and take antibiotics for a week as a precaution.
