Cellulaze, a pioneering invasive cosmetic treatment which targets the dreaded appearance of quilted, pitted fat, has hit the market causing a media storm.

Affecting more than 8 out of 10 women, cellulite is considered one of the curses of female gender, but Cellulaze is considered one of the best weapons to banish orange-peel thighs.

Cellulite occurs when the strands that connect the layers of tissue and the fat below the skin (fibrous septae) gradually harden and contract, while the fat between stays the same and protrudes out in a lumpy fashion.

Diet, exercise, creams and massage do help, but chronic sufferers are constantly on the lookout for a long-term solution.

The Sunday Times Style magazine has reported that new laser cellulite treatment Cellulaze claims to melt the fat and then break down the fibres anchoring the tiny fat pockets, thus banishing the appearance of cellulite.

It is the first scientifically validated laser cellulite treatment to win the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which accepted the results of Cellulaze’s year-long trial last January.

The study was conducted in the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and monitored a group of women with an average age of 47.

It showed that just one Cellulaze treatment prevented the return of cellulite for at least a year. There are even claims that the earliest patients have remained cellulite-free for three years.

The treatment, which costs upwards of $4,000, takes one to two hours and involves a local anaesthetic and mild sedation, followed by the insertion of a laser rod, like a fine knitting needle, just below the surface of the skin through a series of tiny cuts, reported the Sunday Times.

Laser beams then transmit energy sideways from the rod to smooth out lumpy fat cells and heat dermal tissue. The method promotes skin thickening and tightening, resulting in tighter, smoother skin. The laser directly targets the structure of cellulite.

As well as destroying the lumps, it stimulates collagen production just below the surface, and, in most cases, gives a smoother result than anything previously achieved by other anti-cellulite treatments.

The Cellulaze laser fiber claims 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 skin’s depth and elasticity for a smoother look.

Liquefied fat is then pressed out.

Hassan Shaaban, a consultant plastic surgeon at the Sthetix clinic in Liverpool, was the British pioneer, and has now become the principal specialist training other doctors from across Europe in the technique.

He warns that not every patient will benefit.

“We classify cellulite severity from one to four,” he says.

“This treatment works best on stages two and three. In other words, women with serious cellulite will first have to lose fat by other methods.”

The cosmetic surgeon Angelica Kavouni, of the Cadogan Clinic in London, underwent the training last December and has already treated 15 women. \

“I am cautiously optimistic that it works, but I think most patients will also have to make lifestyle changes such as diet and more exercise to maintain the results,” she told the Sunday Times.

Cellulaze is an invention that is beyond a woman’s wildest dreams: a gadget that could end the dreaded “orange peel” effect of cellulite.

Surnamed as ‘the death of cellulite”, the Cellulaze laser attacks the unsightly fat from three angles.

More than that, Cellulaze is said to produce long-lasting results, smoothing thighs in just one hour-long treatment.

Dimpled bottoms and upper arms can also be treated with Cellulaze.

Patients say at least 70% of their cellulite has vanished, with some still happy two years later.

Some experts are predicting Cellulaze will revolutionize the treatment of cellulite.

Others are more cautious, saying that the almost $5,000 (£3,000) treatment is not a solution.

Cellulite – lumps of fat trapped beneath the skin – affects more than 85% of women over 20. Even celebrities such as actress Kim Cattrall, 55, have been pictured with it.

Usually, treatments include creams and lasers that zap the cellulite from outside the body. Women can also buy tights or knickers impregnated with caffeine that claim to melt away cellulite.

But all are temporary solutions and need to be used again.

In contrast, a single Cellulaze treatment produces dramatic results, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons annual conference heard.

Unlike other treatments, Cellulaze is inserted 1 cm or so below the skin.

Once there, Cellulaze first melts away the bulging pockets of fat, and then attacks the thick fibres that trap the fat.

Finally, the laser is pointed at the top layer of skin to trigger the production of the protein collagen.

Patients, who have a sedative and a local anaesthetic, may see immediate improvements, it is claimed – although full results will take up to six months.

Karen Cronholm, Cellulaze manufacturer Cynosure representative, said: “Patients have a bit of bruising for a week or so and a bit of swelling. Most are back to normal activities in 24 to 48 hours.”

Dr. Klainer, of Chrysalis Plastic Surgery in Virginia, U.S., said of Cellulaze:

“This is going to revolutionize the treatment of cellulite.”

Dr. Nigel Mercer, a former president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, said:

“It is not the answer. But it is probably the closest we have got to it at the moment.”
