One time treatment for cellulite offers hope for millions of women.
It is a dream come true for many women who suffer with unsightly lumps and bumps known as cellulite.
Diet and exercise seem to do little to impact the fatty tissue just below the surface of the skin.
Dr. Bruce Katz, director of the Juva Skin and Laser Center in New York City, introduced the Cellulaze, the first one-time laser treatment approved for cellulite by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Cellulite occurs when collagen bands under the skin pull down, causing hills of fat to push up – resulting in that infamous dimpled appearance.
“For the first time, we really actually have a laser that treats all three components of cellulite,” Katz said.
Katz threads a laser under the skin to break the collagen bands, smoothing the appearance of cellulite in just one session.
“The real ground-breaking difference here, is that the laser beam is split in two different directions,” he said. “It is the first time we have ever been able to do that.”
