"I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Fernau and his staff! From the moment I walked in, I felt comfortable and excited for my procedure. The front office lady, Michelle, was very kind, and clear in explaining the procedure and everything I needed to know. Sharon, the office manager, was very welcoming as well! The waiting room was very relaxing and I didn't even have to wait long at all. Dr. Fernau was amazing, patient, and genuine - he explained everything about the procedu...re, everything I needed to know about my recovery, and I was out of there within 45 minutes! I felt very cared for in this office and can't wait to go back for more work!! I really appreciated how everyone there made sure to educate me on the recovery process.

How Does Cellulaze™ Work?
A very small cannula (or tube about the size of the tip of a pen) is inserted under the skin. Cynosure’s unique SideLight laser fiber inside the tube delivers energy directly under the skin. This increases the depth and quality of your skin, while simultaneously releasing the fibrous bands that pull it down— minimizing the orange peel look associated with cellulite. Finally, the laser is used to diminish the lumpy pockets of fat that protrude through the fibrous bands under your skin.
Good Cellulaze Candidacy?
Cellulaze delivers the best results for women who are not significantly overweight but have mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs. If you are considering Cellulaze but have questions, we encourage you to call us and schedule a consultation.
Is Cellulaze painful?
Because the area is numbed with local anesthesia, there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may feel a light pressure. Following a Cellulaze treatment, you may experience some soreness, but you will be able to return to your normal activities in a day or two.
Does Cellulaze Really Work?
Cellulaze is backed by two years of clinical research. Studies have shown that it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%—significant claims that haven’t been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin’s surface to improve the appearance of cellulite.
How Long do the Results Last?
You’ll see some improvement right away with optimal results apparent between 3-6 months. Since new collagen is formed in the areas treated with Cellulaze and the structures under the skin are altered, results are lasting. Clinical studies have shown results can last for one year or more. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to continue to enjoy the excellent results.
