NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a few short months we will no longer be comfortably bundled up from head to toe – conveniently covering up unsightly skin and body conditions like fat pockets and cellulite.  Now is the time to get rid of those body image woes with the latest in-office treatments.

Dr. Bruce Katz, Director of The Body Contouring Center at the renowned JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York, has hand selected an arsenal of the latest technological breakthroughs to quickly and easily treat common body issues like excess fat, loose skin and cellulite – no cutting required! Here are the doctor's orders:

If you're looking to trim your waistline a bit, Liposonix ultrasound (HIFU) treatments work to target areas of stubborn fat.  The treatment works by permanently destroying targeted fat cells, without surgery, under the skin's surface.  Fat tissue is removed through the body's natural healing process, leaving the patient with a thinner, more contoured waistline.   This revolutionary non-invasive fat reduction technology only takes one hour to perform and patients have shed on-average one pant size from one treatment.

To treat more substantial areas of unwanted fat, SmartLipo remains the gold standard in laser liposuction.  Dr. Katz recommends an updated version of this treatment – the SmartLipo Triplex – which addresses an array of patient problems while allowing for faster procedure times, easier recovery and less bruising than other devices. This popular, minimally invasive treatment gives the body a tighter, slimmer and smoother physique by dissolving fat cells and tightening the skin. The result is high-definition sculpting for busy patients on-the-go.

For the 85% of women over the age of 20 that are plagued with cellulite, 2012 marked the biggest breakthrough yet in cellulite treatment with the FDA approval of Cellulaze.

Dubbed the "miracle treatment" for cellulite, this one-time, long-lasting, minimally invasive treatment leaves skin smooth and dimple-free. Through one application, Cellulaze has the ability to treat the appearance of cellulite by utilizing state-of-the-art technology to eliminate its appearance and stop future growth, making results long lasting. It contains a triple-duty laser that heats and melts fat, slices the web-like connective tissue that traps fat in the first place, and stimulates collagen growth for thicker skin.

To further enhance results, Dr. Katz uses SmartLipo in conjunction with Cellulaze – allowing patients to undergo one procedure to effectively "slim" their physique by removing stubborn fat, tightening the skin and removing cellulite. 

Both SmartLipo and Cellulaze treatments are minimally invasive procedures, meaning they are performed under local anesthesia at JUVA's accredited AAAHC facility.  Patients usually return to their normal routine after 2 – 3 days.
