CelluSmooth® in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky

Indications

Areas of cellulite appearance to the thighs and buttocks. Best candidates have tighter skin and a fair amount of fat on the trunk region.

Intended Results

A smoother appearance of the lumpy bumpy areas.

Procedure Description

Cellusmooth® treatment was developed by Dr. Salzman using software changes to a dual wavelength body contouring laser developed by Sciton. Cellusmooth® is done in the office under a local anesthetic with oral sedation if necessary. Tiny no-stitch needle holes are made in the area and numbing medicine with adrenaline is placed with a pump and fine canula under the skin. Diagnostic ultrasound is sometimes used to help locate the septa contributing to the depression. The laser is used in a “burst mode” to sever the septa. The same laser is then used to melt the fat just under the skin and heat the dermis from the inside out to tighten the overlying skin. Tiny needle holes are covered with a band-aid.

Recuperation and Healing

Patients may have some mild discomfort in the treated area for about a week. Bruising and swelling dissipate in about 7-10 days. The look of the cellulite improves slowly over a 3 month time period. Compression garments are worn for about 2 weeks and gentle massage is started thereafter.

Other Options

SkinTyte™  2 and Exilis can help once healed in improving the result and adding additional skin tightening.
