in Raleigh, Durham, Fayetteville, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Charlotte and the surrounding areas of the Carolinas.
Does it work?
Cellulaze works for the right candidate. Cellulaze is the only cellulite treatment that directly attacks the structure of cellulite. Before Cellulaze, there were hundreds of products made to combat cellulite. Various creams, gels, wraps and also devices (Smooth Shapes, Velashape, etc.) are among the hundreds of treatments promising results. These products showed little to no benefit, providing only temporary improvement if any. These products were unsuccessful because they did not target the structure of cellulite.
Who is the best candidate for Cellulaze?
The ideal candidate for Cellulaze is an individual in good health with true cellulite and no skin laxity or varicose veins.
How long does the procedure take?
It typically takes approximately 45 minutes per area treated depending on the size of the targeted area.
Does it hurt?
Dr. Miller uses a layering technique for injecting the local anesthesia for this procedure. This technique results in minimal discomfort. Some patients report feeling light pressure if they feel anything at all. The technique prevents severe bruising and pigmentation that were once associated with this procedure.
