"I just finished day seven of my post-surgery checkup with Dr Fernau, and here’s my personal experience. Upon arrival of my consultation, I was greeted by the friendliest staff. Every one of them helped in my progression, aided in my treatments, calmed my anxiety, and exceeded my expectations. Scheduling surgery and getting the medications for the operation were straightforward. As for the surgery, the instructions were clear, the procedure explained, and questions answered. The results were beyond what I expected. Dr Fernau is exceptionally passionate about his work and cares for his patients. The open communication that Dr Fernau has with his staff is what creates such a successful business model and positive outcomes for his patients. After surgery I had difficulty walking, and one of the staff members helped my wife with taking me home. The compassion, dedication, and excellence that I experienced with Dr Fernau and his staff give me the pleasure of providing the highest of recommendations."- C.M. / Google / Nov 24, 2019

Dr. Fernau was amazing. He explained everything and took the time to answer my questions. He has an eye for detail and strives for perfection. Highly, highly recommend. I felt safe and secure with him as my surgeon. Follow up with so easy and timely. Overall the procedure had very little pain or down time. Would do it again."- S.W. / Google / Oct 10, 2019

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.
