80-PERCENT OF WOMEN PAST PUBERTY HAVE CELLULITE AND MANY HAVE TRIED JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING TO GET RID OF IT.
NOW JUST IN TIME FOR SWIMSUIT SEASON, A NEW F-D-A APPROVED DEVICE CAN ZAP CELLULITE AWAY IN MINUTES.
WHAT DO HAIL DAMAGE, COTTAGE CHEESE AND ORANGE PEEL HAVE IN COMMON? THEY'RE ALL SLANG FOR CELLULITE.
"It's just very frustrating."
"I was just always self-conscious of it."
KATE AND PAM SAY THE BUMPS AND LUMPS ON THE BACK OF THEIR THIGHS ARE ALWAYS IN THE BACK OF THEIR MINDS. WHEN THEY HIT THE SHORE...
"Usually I cover up."
"I was the mommy on the beach with a skirt on the whole time."
THEY'VE SPENT THOUSANDS ON TREATMENTS AND GIMMICKS, BUT NOTHING'S WORKED. THEY HOPE THIS WILL.
"This is something we've been waiting a long time for."
COSMETIC SURGEON ROGER BASSIN SAYS CELLULAZE, WHICH WAS RECENTLY APPROVED BY THE F-D-A, USES A LASER TO DO THREE THINGS.
IT MELTS FAT JUST UNDER THE SKIN...
("I'm literally melting the deep fat pocket down there.")
CUTS THE BANDS THAT CAUSE THE BULGES AND FINALLY...
("Get the skin to thicken and the skin to tighten.")
RIGHT NOW, PAM'S GETTING THE ONE-HOUR TREATMENT.
("You don't even feel like he's doing anything.")
KATE HAD THE PROCEDURE A MONTH EARLIER. HERE SHE IS BEFORE CELLULAZE. THIS IS A WEEK AFTER.THIS IS THREE WEEKS LATER.
"The little bits that were all lumpy and bumpy has all smoothened out." RESULTS OF A TWO YEAR STUDY SHOW CELLULAZE INCREASES SKIN THICKNESS AND ELASTICITY. DOCTOR BASSIN SAYS THE TRIAL ALSO SHOWED THERE WAS NO RECURRENCE OF CELLULITE AFTER TWO YEARS. THAT'S WHY HE BELIEVES IT'S A PERMANENT SOLUTION.
"I'm excited not to wear a sarong all summer."
"I'm definitely wearing my bikini, I will not cover up!
DOCTOR BASSIN SAYS COSTS FOR CELLULAZE VARY BY REGION.
BUT YOU'LL PROBABLY PAY 25-HUNDRED TO THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS PER ZONE.
SO IF YOU GET THE FRONT, SIDE, AND REAR OF YOUR THIGHS DONE, YOU'RE LOOKING AT 75-HUNDRED TO NINE-THOUSAND DOLLARS.
