Although cellulite is completely normal and harmless, the infamous ‘cottage cheese’ appearance can feel unseemly. Dr. Truong offers Cellulaze™, a cutting-edge treatment for cellulite that can create a smoother, cellulite-free appearance with only one treatment and minimal downtime.
Cellulite is caused by enlarged fat cells trapped between stiffened tissue bands beneath the skin. Using advanced laser technology, Cellulaze™ releases the stiff tissue bands that cause fat cells to push up against the skin before increasing collagen production for improved skin quality. With Dr. Truong’s extensive experience with laser techniques, you can expect optimal results from this minimally invasive procedure.

When it comes to looking your best, you shouldn’t be overburdened with financial worries. In order to help make your cellulite treatment as stress-free as possible, our practice offers CareCredit and other financing options to help all patients meet their day-to-day needs.
Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.
Nearly every woman suffers from some amount of cellulite, and the appearance of cellulite isn’t necessarily linked to your amount of body fat. However, when cellulite prevents you from feeling confident in your own skin, you may benefit from cellulite reduction for smoother contours. By attacking cellulite at its source, Cellulaze™ can even out strained fat cells under the epidermis for smoother, less dimpled skin after only one treatment.
During your consultation, Dr. Truong will discuss your goals for cellulite reduction with you, as well as outline the procedural details of Cellulaze™. He will also explain how the laser technology behind the Cellulaze™ treatment works to break down cellulite to improve your skin appearance and the kinds of results you can expect.
The entire Cellulaze™ treatment should only take from 1 to 1.5 hours, and due to its minimally invasive nature, the treatment can be performed under local anesthesia.
Dr. Truong will make tiny incisions about the size of a pen’s tip in the treatment area, through which he will thread a laser fiber using a very small cannula. Using focused laser energy below the skin, Dr. Truong can level out bumps of fat, release the tissue bands that create uneven bumps on the skin’s surface, and stimulate collagen production to increase skin elasticity and thickness for a healthier appearance.
You may experience mild discomfort during or after the procedure and some fluid may leak from the incision sites. A small amount of bruising is normal but should subside within a few days. Dr. Truong may ask you to wear a compression garment to assist with any swelling and to maintain optimal blood flow.
You should be able to return to your normal activities within one or two days of your cellulite reduction, and resume more strenuous exercises after one to two weeks. Your results should continue to develop and improve over the following three to twelve months, with many patients reporting the long-lasting benefits of smoother and healthier looking skin.
