The fear of surgery is the main reason why people who want and can afford liposuction surgery tend to shy away from this procedure. This is why people often find themselves searching for a non-invasive liposuction procedure. Good news is that there are several alternatives to liposuction that have proven itself both safe and effective. This utilize the latest in medical technology to bring about weight loss.
Recent developments have made it possible for people to enjoy a slimmer figure with non-surgical liposuction. These procedures are non-invasive and reduces or eliminates the risks associated with surgery. At the end of treatment, people are able to enjoy a slimmer figure without any damage to their skin.
For those who are not yet familiar with the non-surgical lipo, it is a treatment that helps get rid away of your body fats without the need of an invasive surgery. It is safer and mostly approved by the Food and Drug Administration. There are many alternatives to liposuction and one of these that do not require surgery (though it is minimally invasive) is what we call the Cellulaze Anti-Cellulite treatment.
Cellulaze is designed to target the structural problems underneath your skin that causes cellulites. This procedure uses laser and must be performed by a licensed physician. It has also been proven clinically to help smoothen and make your skin look healthier.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Factors such as age, hormones, sudden weight changes, and even genetics can play a big role in cellulite development as this cause your connective tissue bands to stiffen under your skin, which will in turn make your fat cells bigger and pushes it up to the skin. In this case, Cellulaze will treat the fibrous bands underneath your skin and adds elasticity and thickness to it too, thereby, decreasing the appearance of fats and cellulites.
First, your physician will place marks on those areas that you want to be treated. Though an incision is to be made, there is nothing to worry about as this is only very small and a size of the tip of a pen. You cannot feel pain as the physician will use a local anesthesia for the treatment.
After all preparations are done, the Cellulaze laser fiber is placed on a very small cannula and inserted to your body through the incision made. Your physician will use it to level out fats in your body; release fibrous bands to help treat dimples; and stimulate the production of collagen to help increase the elasticity and depth of your skin. Once these fats were liquified, it will then be pressed out of your body gently.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST? AND IS IT A ONE-TIME PROCEDURE?
You have to give the treatment 1 to 1 ½ hours to be completed. Unlike most of the non-surgical liposuction treatments, Cellulaze is done only once and you can already expect to see the difference by then.
WHAT ARE THE AFTER EFFECTS OF THE PROCEDURE?
Right after the procedure, you will have bruising and discomfort. The physician may also recommend you to wear a compression garment as the incision site may leak some small amount of fluids. This particular treatment will also require you to rest and you can only go back to your normal activities in a day or two, while rigorous exercise can be resumed after a week or two. The results of the treatment will also continuously improve for the following three to twelve months.
