Most people dread seeing that first glimpse of cellulite that has developed on the body. Unfortunately, cellulite is a common problem, and one that affects even those patients who are fit, healthy, and slim. This is because cellulite is not really a problem that is caused by how much fat a person has, but where that fat sits, and how it pushes up against the skin’s connective bands and tissues. What this means is that no amount of diet or exercise is going to completely eliminate cellulite. Fortunately, Dr. William Baugh offers Cellulaze™ cellulite treatment to address problem areas to restore a smooth, firm appearance. One of the many benefits of this procedure is that the Cellulaze™ recovery is brief; our Fullerton, CA patients are able to dramatically improve the appearance of the skin with minimal side effects or downtime.
How Long Is Cellulaze™ Recovery?
Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive procedure that treats cellulite below the skin, where the source of cellulite lies. Because this is not simply a superficial cosmetic solution, patients should plan to allow their body time to recover. This means that there will be a brief period of downtime that is required to rest and refrain from strenuous activities. However, unlike more invasive surgical procedures, the recovery time for Cellulaze™ treatment is brief. Most patients require only a couple of days to recoup and are able to return to their regular routine just two to three days after treatment.
Side Effects of Cellulaze™ Recovery
Cellulaze™ treatment does commonly result in some minimal side effects for patients. The most common of these is bruising, swelling, and minor aches and pains. If patients do feel any discomfort following treatment, it is often easily controlled by over-the-counter pain medication, and should go away in just a few days.
Bruising and swelling are the most common side effects of Cellulaze™ treatment. These symptoms are typically the most severe during the first couple of days following treatment, but are likely to persist for about a week. Dr. Baugh may recommend the use of a compression garment during recovery from Cellulaze™ treatment. This will assist in the healing of bruises and swelling, and will also help to promote enhanced body contouring results.
Cellulaze™ often provides patients with dramatic, and almost immediate results. Many patients report that the treatment area looks smoother within days after treatment. These results will only continue to improve in the weeks after treatment. Below are some of the results that patients can expect to achieve following Cellulaze™ treatment:
- Thicker skin
- Smoother, firmer skin
- The diminished appearance of dimply, lumpy skin (often referred to as “cottage cheese”)
- Improved body contours
- Increase of collagen production
- Improved skin elasticity
