Frequently Asked Questions

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. It is caused by irregular patterns of connective tissue under the skin when bands of fat push up.

How does Cellulaze work?

Cellulaze is the first minimally invasive treatment that targets cellulite at the cellular level of the skin. Cellulaze uses thermal energy to liquefy fat and break up fibrous bands of tissue that pull down the skin and create the dimpled appearance of cellulite. 

How long does it take to recover from Cellulaze treatment?

Downtime from Cellulaze is relatively minor compared to alternative procedures. Most patients are able to gradually return back to normal activities shortly after their procedure. We advise that patients take off one day from work and refrain from exercise for one week. 

Can I get rid of cellulite naturally with exercise and proper diet?


Exercise and proper diet can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, but won’t get rid of it completely. Ageing alone can make cellulite worse.


How long will the results last?


Cellulaze has been clinically proven to increase skin thickness and elasticity. Many patients notice that the appearance of their skin becomes smoother and more youthful after the treatment. Only one treatment is needed, and the results are long lasting (some patients have seen results last for up to six years).
