Finally, there’s a longer-lasting, one-time treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It’s a unique laser treatment called Cellulaze that attacks the very structure of cellulite. Cellulite isn’t a fat problem: it’s a structural problem below the skin. Only Cellulaze attacks the fibrous structure beneath the skin that is the real cause of cellulite’s dimpled appearance. And Cellulaze increases your skin’s natural depth for a smoother, healthier look that lasts—all from just one simple treatment. Get ready to bare it all again!

How Does it Work?
The Cellulaze treatment is performed by using a very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) inserted under the skin. A unique SideLight™ laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. The precise SideLight laser energy increases the depth and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on your skin, to minimize the orange peel look associated with cellulite. The laser is also used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude though the fibrous bands under your skin.
How many treatments are required to achieve the desired results?
Only one Cellulaze treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results. Final results won’t be apparent for three to six months. Of course there are exceptions to every rule, in some cases Smartlipo session is required before Cellulaze session.
Can anyone have this treatment?
The best candidates for Cellulaze are women who are not significantly overweight but have cellulite. A consultation with Dr. Hotchandani can provide you with the best information.
Does it hurt?
There is little discomfort associated with the Cellulaze treatment, since a local anesthetic is injected throughout to numb the areas that will be treated. Patients are able to talk with Dr. Hotchandani and the surgical staff during the procedure because they are awake and not sedated with any intravenous sedation. To provide pain free experience, Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen (laughing gas) is used.
Are there any side effects?
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, after the treatment there will be some swelling and soreness. Patients may have some fluid leak out of the incision sites following the procedure. Bruising is rare and if there is numbness it is usually temporary. Compression garment is provided immediately after the procedure to minimize swelling and obtain even results.
I have tried everything to get rid of cellulite, how do I know Cellulaze really works?
Cellulaze is backed by two years of clinical research and cleared for use in the United States. Clinical data has proven Cellulaze treatments can increase the thickness of the skin by 25% and increase the skin’s elasticity by 29%: significant claims which haven’t been made by many other anti-cellulite treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin’s surface therefore improving the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 100% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results one year after their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze treatment to a friend.
How long does the procedure take?
On average, the procedure will take one to two hours, depending on the size of the areas to be treated.
Do I have to stay in the hospital?
No, Cellulaze is an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia in our Green Bay facility.
How long do the results last?
Since new collagen is formed in the areas treated with Cellulaze and the structures under the skin are altered—producing results that last. Clinical studies have shown results can persist for years. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the results.
Will there be scarring?
The incision sites will be very small. With proper care, any scars will be barely noticeable. Unless you have tendency to have keloids/hypertrophic scars. Best way to improve the results will be discussed. Avoiding sun and tanning are extremely important to achieve optimal healing.
