Reno, NV — McCormack Plastic Surgery is announcing the addition of an innovative cellulite treatment known as Cellulaze™. Recently approved by the FDA, Dr. Tiffany McCormack says Cellulaze is the first procedure shown to significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite with a single treatment session, adding that results in some studies were shown to last up to three years or more.
Approximately 90% of women are affected by dimples and bumps caused by cellulite as it settles around their hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. The Reno plastic surgeon says cellulite is often thought of as a fat problem to be addressed with diet and exercise; however, she is quick to tell her patients cellulite is often caused by factors outside of their control, such as genetics, skin thickness, the natural aging process, or the body’s unique distribution of fat.
The innovative cellulite reduction treatment Cellulaze is designed to address these concerns by breaking down the structural makeup of cellulite beneath the skin . After marking the targeted areas on the patient’s body, and administering a local anesthetic, Dr. McCormack says Cellulaze works in three different ways:
- Levels out bumps of fat, also known as the “cottage cheese” appearance
- Treats dimples by releasing fibrous bands pulling on the skin
- Stimulates collagen production for improved skin depth and elasticity
At her Reno plastic surgery practice, Dr. McCormack says the minimally invasive procedure typically takes about 1.5 hours to complete. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities directly following the procedure, and any bruising that occurs should fade within days. She says results will be noticeable within four weeks, with continued improvement over the three months following the procedure and lasting anywhere up to three years or more in some cases: “Cellulite plagues millions of women. Until now, I have not seen effective results that are long lasting with any of the current treatment modalities, which is why making Cellulaze available to my patients was extremely important to my team.”
