Plastic Surgeon First to Offer New Cellulite Treatment in Virginia Beach
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Cellulite affects one third of all Americans and 85 to 90% of all adult women. Dr. Ben Hugo, Board Certified Virginia Beach plastic surgeon, now offers a breakthrough procedure to minimize the appearance of cellulite not currently offered anywhere in Hampton Roads. FDA approved Cellulaze is an in-office laser procedure with a quick recovery that targets the cause of cellulite beneath the skin. Results have been proven to last longer than 2 years.
“We’re excited to be the first in the area to offer this new procedure,” said Diane Graham, Practice Manager at Ben Hugo, MD, “cellulite isn’t a fat problem; it’s a structural problem below the skin. Only Cellulaze attacks the brittle structural bonds beneath the skin that are the real cause of cellulite’s dimpled appearance. Cellulaze also stimulates collagen growth, for thicker, more elastic and healthier looking skin.”
Cellulaze is ideal for treating patients who, despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, continue to have the appearance of cellulite. First, it delivers laser energy to the dermis, producing thicker skin and increased elasticity, and thermally subscises fibrotic bands that pull down and contour the skin.
Patients can now achieve lasting results never thought possible by taking advantage of this technology and working with a qualified physician. Results start to appear within a few weeks and continue to improve in the following months after the procedure.
