For patients frustrated by cellulite, Dr. Kevin M. Johnson now offers an innovative option to plastic surgery in Spokane: Cellulaze™.
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (March 2012) – Dr. Kevin M. Johnson of Advanced Aesthetics is known for being an early adopter of effective options to plastic surgery in Spokane. Now, for his patients who want to smooth away the “orange peel” look of cellulite, Dr. Johnson is featuring a revolutionary non-surgical option: Cellulaze™.
“Many of my patients choose me because they know I’m focused on designing a treatment plan that meets their needs, whether it’s a no-downtime option to Spokane plastic surgery or a solution that works – permanently – to banish cellulite,” Dr. Johnson says. “For that reason, I was delighted to discover Cellulaze, which achieves both goals.
“Cellulite can be particularly frustrating because it rarely responds to even the strictest diet or fitness program. That’s where Cellulaze comes in. With just one laser treatment, I can smooth the dimpled surface that is characteristic of cellulite.”
Cellulite can be caused by hormonal changes, heredity, weight fluctuation and the aging process, Dr. Johnson says. Bands of connective tissue beneath the skin tighten, causing the surrounding fat cells to enlarge and create that “cottage cheese” appearance.
Cellulaze releases those fibrous bands, using laser energy, which is delivered through a small tube inserted under the patient’s skin. This minimally invasive alternative to plastic surgery in Idaho involves only tiny incisions, and Dr. Johnson keeps his patients comfortable by using a local anesthetic.
“Although a typical Cellulaze treatment takes only about an hour, the benefits are multifaceted,” Dr. Johnson says. “It evens out those lumps of fat, so your skin looks smooth. In addition, Cellulaze stimulates your body to produce more collagen. That, in turn, makes your skin more elastic and enhances its appearance.”
In addition to Cellulaze, Dr. Johnson offers a variety of body contouring methods, including CoolSculpting® and liposuction. Other popular procedures at his practice include injectable fillers, laser hair removal and skin and vein treatments.
