How does Cellulaze laser work?

A special designed fiber that exists inside this tube delivers its energy when being under the skin. This laser procedure increases the quality and the thickness of your and realeases the fibrous bands that pull down your skin giving it the orange look that is caused by cellulite. Also, the pockets of fat that exist in the fibrous bands under your skin are being destroyed.
