Getting Cellulaze in Atlanta

Cellulaze — an anti-cellulite laser treatment — has been referred as a “game-changer” in the treatment of cellulite by many publications around the country since its release in early 2012.

Until Cellulaze, only surface treatments and topical creams existed for the treatment of cellulite. These creams offered temporary improvement, if any at all. Cellulaze is the first minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structural problems beneath the skin that cause cellulite, providing clinically proven, long-term results.

WIFH was the first in Georgia to offer this procedure, and Dr. Kulkin has been featured on CNN with Dr. Sanjay Gupta performing Cellulaze. We’ve now done over 1,000 procedures without complication.

Unlike other forms of cellulite treatments, which use radio frequency or laser energy over the epidermis, Cellulaze fights cellulite from under the skin. The treatment’s unique bidirectional laser beam is used to liquefy fat cells and to cut stubborn septae (connective tissue) – which cause those infamous “hills and valleys” on our skin.

Cellulaze is great for any area of the body where you notice lumpy, dimpling skin. It is ideal for treating the back of the legs, buttocks, thighs and abdomen.

This procedure carries very low risk. While it is a minimally invasive procedure since we are entering the skin it all performed using local anesthesia. Most complications you hear about that take place during procedures are due to the use of general anesthesia or IV sedation which we do not use.

We use local anesthesia, a mixture of lidocaine, epinephrine and sodium bi-carbonate  to thoroughly numb/anesthetize the area to be treated with Cellulaze. Local anesthesia is the safest form of anesthesia and its effects last many hours post procedure decreasing the need for narcotic pain medications after surgery. If you are feeling a bit anxious about having a procedure done while you are awake we do give you the option of taking an oral sedative prior to beginning your procedure.

Bruising is going to occur following this procedure and it can be fairly extensive, however it does resolve pretty quickly. Typically by the time you are out of the compression garment most of the bruising has resolved (2 weeks). You should also anticipate swelling which will diminish along with the bruising.

The Week Before Your Procedure

To reduce the risk of bleeding and additional bruising, you should discontinue all supplements including fish oils, aspirin and ibuprofen a week before the Cellulaze procedure  You should also limit alcohol consumption several days leading up to the procedure.

For faster resolution of bruising many patients start taking Arnica pellets 2-3 days in advance of their procedure. Arnica Montana is an herbal supplement and can be purchased at many drug stores or health food/vitamin shops.

Patients will also begin taking an antibiotic (keflex) the day before the procedure.

The Day of Your Treatment

On the day of your Cellulaze procedure, you can eat a light meal before arriving for your treatment as you will be awake during the procedure. If you choose to take the oral sedative (anti-anxiety medicine) you will take that upon arrival to our office.

Once your vitals have been taken, Dr. Kulkin will mark the area(s) of cellulite to be treated using a stencil and marker, denoting both the fatty pockets and connective tissue bands.

Pre-procedure “Before” photos are also taken at this time.

The procedure starts with the infusion of lidocaine into the fat, the exact same technique we use in our Smartlipo laser liposuction procedure. This is done through a couple of tiny incisions or punctures, about the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen. Once healed these incisions are virtually invisible.

After you are completely numb, we insert the SideLight 3D Cellulaze laser fiber. The heat from the laser melts the trapped fatty pockets that are creating the bulges and it cuts and releases the fibrous bands that pull the skin down, creating the dimpled depressions.

Keep in mind, the pushing and pulling of the skin against the cellulite over the course of years has worn the skin very thin in certain areas. Once these bands are cut, the skin releases, and with it the melted fat that was trapped inside. The heat the laser delivers triggers a healing response in your body, prompting it to overproduce collagen and elastin, which will help rebuild the thinned-out skin tissue. This process has to continue over time in order to rebuild and thicken the skin so that it appears smooth.

Pain/Discomfort

The procedure is done using local anesthesia (lidocaine and epinephrine) to numb the treatment area. The numbing fluid is very effective and allows for a comfortable procedure. During the procedure, you will only feel movement and some pressure.

We will prescribe a mild pain medication for any discomfort following the procedure although most find over-the-counter pain medications are adequate.

Treatment Duration/Frequency

The entire Cellulaze procedure takes approximately 1-1 ½ hours per area; an example of an area would be the backs of both thighs. The beauty of Cellulaze is it only requires one treatment to the area to achieve long-lasting results.

We have patients from all around the country that travel here to have Dr. Kulkin perform their Cellulaze treatment. They are able to fly in; have their procedure done and fly out the next day.

Healing post-Cellulaze treatment is very quick. You are able to get back to your normal activities 1-2 days following your procedure, many patients return to work the next day.  You may have some drainage from the incision sites for the first 24-48 hours post procedure. You will have some tenderness for the first few days, but it will not impede your mobility. You should expect significant bruising and some swelling for around two weeks.

Because the incisions are so small, they do not require stitches after the procedure. They heal quickly and are virtually undetectable. We will provide you with a compression garment that you will wear for two weeks following the procedure. You can resume more strenuous exercise after one to two weeks or as you feel up to it.

Follow up post procedure is very important. Because your results are gradual it is often hard to see the changes that are happening, especially when you are looking at yourself each and every day. We recommend follow up at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months post treatment that way photos can be taken and those can be put up side by side to show the progression and improvement.

One thing is for sure this procedure absolutely works for effective cellulite removal. We have never done this procedure and not seen results.

We believe it is critical for anyone considering a surgical procedure, regardless of how minor, should personally meet with the doctor who will be performing the procedure. For this reason, you will have a personal, complimentary consultation with Dr. Kulkin to discuss your goals and to learn more about Cellulaze.

During your Cellulaze consultation, Dr. Kulkin will assess the areas needing improvement and make recommendations for treatment. He will also take a comprehensive medical history so that we are aware of any health issues you may have.  Sometimes patients think they need Cellulaze when in fact it may be a combination of Smartlipo and Cellulaze, or simply Smartlipo that will work best. Dr. Kulkin will be able to tell you the best treatment for you during the consultation.
