Cellulaze Laser Cellulite Treatment in Palo Alto, San Francisco, San Jose, and the Bay Area


Roughly 85 percent of women over the age of 20 have cellulite, usually affecting the thighs and buttocks. Even people in great physical shape can be affected by this frustrating condition. Now there is a new treatment that delivers results that last – our Bay Area Cellulaze treatment. Dr Vistnes is one of just a few Palo Alto plastic surgeons to offer this remarkable and revolutionary procedure.

How does Cellulaze work?

The Cellulaze laser treatment goes after the actual cause of cellulite, attacking its structure and diminishing the appearance of dimples, bumps, and bulges. It is a single treatment with results that can last up to a year or more. Dr. Vistnes performs the Cellulaze treatment by using a tiny fiber optic laser inserted through tiny incisions in the target areas. The laser levels out bumps, releases fibrous bands under the skin that cause dimpling, and stimulates the growth of collagen for smoother skin in the area.

The entire Cellulaze in San Jose procedure takes about one to one and-a-half hours to complete and is performed in the office with numbing anesthesia applied to the areas.

Recovery and Results:

After your procedure, you can return home immediately. Recovery is quick and you can resume most normal activities within a couple of days. Some bruising and discomfort can occur after Cellulaze treatment, but it is usually described as mild. You may be asked to wear a compression garment for a few days to help speed healing and reduce swelling.

After about 3 weeks, the results of your treatment will start to become visible, with improvements continuing to develop during the following 3 to 12 months. You will enjoy skin with better tone and fewer surface irregularities. Depressions will gradually level out, and your body contour will be sleeker and more attractive.

Cellulaze is the first treatment for cellulite approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that attacks the problem at its very source – under the skin. Dr. Vistnes was one of the first plastic surgeons in the country to be trained on this remarkable procedure after the FDA approval and is happy to be able to offer it to his patients. With our Bay Area Cellulaze treatment, you can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite with long-lasting results!
