Cellulaze is a laser cellulite treatment that allows long-lasting reduction of cellulite. Some people want to compare it to the older technology of Zerona, also a laser treatment, but the two procedures are very different.

Method of Application: Cellulaze and Zerona are different in their method of application. In Cellulaze, the laser probe is inserted under the skin, where it can directly apply its laser energy to the fat cells, connective tissue, and skin that cause cellulite. Zerona uses laser energy applied to the skin, which absorbs much of the energy before it reaches the fat layer.

Laser: The laser used in Zerona is a low-power 635 nm diode laser. The laser used in Cellulaze is a 1440 nm. The level of power is different, too. Some doctors have compared Zerona's power output to a laser pointer, while the Cellulaze laser has a significant output capacity.

Intended Use: Zerona is intended to reduce the circumference of treated areas, and has never been shown to have an impact on the appearance of cellulite. Cellulaze, on the other hand, has been clinically shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite and has been FDA-cleared as a cellulite treatment.
