BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "In a recent survey of over 1,000 women, 79% admitted to wearing clothes that cover their cellulite, without really understanding the truth about their condition and what's now readily available to help," says Dr. William Hedden of Hedden Plastic Surgery. As one of the first offices in the Birmingham area to offer the newly available CellulazeTM laser cellulite treatment, Dr. Hedden is giving hope this holiday season to his patients. For years women have tried countless topical and non-invasive solutions to get rid of dimpled skin with limited to no results; but as a 2012 breakthrough technology Cellulaze is the world's first minimally invasive medical device designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite with longer lasting results after a single treatment.
Commonly misconstrued as a fat problem, cellulite's true source begins with the skin and plagues 85% of all women1. Cellulaze is unlike any other cellulite treatment; it is the first of its kind to treat the root causes of cellulite underneath the skin's surface. The device uses a tiny laser fiber to decrease the "cottage cheese" appearance of bulges and dimples, while using targeted heat to increase the elasticity and thickness of the skin for smoother looking thighs. Nearly four years of clinical research puts Cellulaze in a class all its own as a single-treatment aesthetic procedure that treats the physiological structure of cellulite. By restoring the normal structure of the skin and underlying connective tissue, one clinical study showed that a single Cellulaze treatment provided results lasting longer than one year with a 94% patient satisfaction rate2. Patients usually see improvements within a few weeks, with the most significant results continuing to develop in the months following the procedure.
