Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon Discusses Cellulaze on The Doctors
Dr. Christine Petti has announced she will be appearing on the CBS network television show The Doctors to discuss Cellulaze®, an innovative minimally-invasive treatment for cellulite reduction recently approved by the FDA. Having played an integral role in the clinical trials for Cellulaze, Dr. Petti and her center for plastic surgery in Los Angeles recently began offering the procedure as an effective way to reduce the appearance of cellulite and smooth skin.
The Doctors, a CBS network television show offering medical advice to its viewers, will be airing a new episode featuring Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Christine Petti on an advanced procedure targeted to eliminate or reduce the appearance of cellulite. Developed by Cynosure, the treatment is called Cellulaze® and was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a minimally-invasive, laser-assisted therapy for cellulite reduction that increases the elasticity, thickness, and smoothness of skin. Dr. Petti, who served as one of five surgeons in the country involved in the clinical trials of Cellulaze, will be demonstrating how the procedure works and revealing the results of one of her patients who recently underwent treatment.
Cellulaze is performed by inserting a tiny laser fiber beneath the skin in order to heat and disrupt herniated pockets of fat and release fibrous bands that dimple skin. The treatment also assists in the stimulation of collagen to increase the depth and tone of skin for a smoother look. Dr. Petti says the entire procedure takes approximately one to one and a half hours and results should be visible within a few weeks, although full skin tightening and cellulite reduction may continue developing over the following months. She also says added benefits of the Cellulaze therapy are the quick recovery and minimal bruising that occur after treatment. “Cellulaze is an effective and one-of-a-kind answer to a woman’s battle against cellulite. As the old adage goes, men are from Mars and women are from Venus. Women are anatomically different: the architecture of the skin, fat and fibrous bands are different in women. Cellulaze is the only treatment that targets this special anatomy so the anatomy of cellulite can be changed, therefore creating a smoother skin surface.”
After having had the opportunity to observe the benefits of the unique cellulite treatment in Los Angeles for some time, Dr. Petti says she is confident in the results and hopes to share her findings with viewers of the CBS show. She adds that she is excited about the chance to introduce more patients to the effective procedure and help patients achieve a confident, healthy body. “’The Doctors’ TV program is the perfect health education platform for me to provide women with a veritable source of information on a dreadful and depressing problem-cellulite-that plagues women of all ages, body and skin types. ‘The Doctors’ is always at the forefront of credible health-related information, and it is a privilege for me to have this forum to relay vital information to women about this revolutionary Cellulaze treatment for cellulite.”
