Get Rid of That Dimpled Skin

Cellulaze is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted cellulite reduction procedure that has been clinically proven to stimulate collagen and elastin, which increases your skin’s natural thickness and elasticity to achieve a smoother appearance. The treatment also works at the structural level beneath the skin’s surface to melt fat and sever the fibrous bands of tissue that are pulling the skin down and causing the “cottage cheese” appearance on the skin. At Grossman Dermatology in Santa Monica, Cellulaze treatments are typically only needed once, and the results can last up to two years.

Thicker Skin, Less Dimpling

Cellulaze achieves considerable improvements in skin quality, which is ideal because thicker, more elastic skin helps improve the appearance of cellulite. Cellulaze has been shown to increase skin thickness by 25% and skin elasticity by 29% even after one year, giving you visibly smoother, healthier-looking skin with less cellulite.

What Causes Cellulite? 

Cellulite is actually caused by factors outside your control. Many believe it’s a fat problem that can simply be addressed through diet and exercise — but fat isn’t the only culprit. Cellulite is a structural issue below the skin. And while you may have tried many cellulite treatments before, Cellulaze is the only procedure that treats the very structure of cellulite. Cellulite reduction at Santa Monica's Grossman Dermatology is performed using Cellulaze to excellent results.


What is the Procedure Like?

  • Dr. Grossman will mark the areas of cellulite to be treated with a marker.
  • A couple of tiny incisions will be made, about the size of the tip of a pen.
  • Local anesthesia or numbing solution is used. You’ll be awake during the procedure.
  • The Cellulaze laser fiber is threaded through a cannula (a small, thin tube) and inserted through the incision sites.
  • Dr. Grossman will use the SideLaze3D™ Cellulaze laser fiber to level out bumps of fat, treat dimples by releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin, and stimulate collagen production to increase your skin’s depth and elasticity.
  • The liquified fat is gently pressed out.
  • The entire procedure should take about 60-90 minutes.

Recovery and Results

After receiving Cellulaze at Santa Monica's Grossman Dermatology, you may be asked to wear a compression garment. You’ll have some bruising and discomfort. Small amounts of fluid may also leak from the incision sites. After a day or two, you’ll be able to go back to your normal activities, and you may resume more strenuous exercise after one to two weeks. Your results will continue to improve for the next three to twelve months. A clinical study showed that a single Cellulaze treatment improved the appearance of cellulite for one year, with few side effects. Further, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results one year post-procedure.
