Cellulite Reduction Treatments
Looking great is hard work. But for as many as 85 to 98% of women in Southern California, diet, exercise, and ineffective “at-home” treatments just aren’t enough to correct stubborn cellulite. Lumpy, dimpled skin with poor tone and an uneven contour can damage your self-image along with your body contour. Cellulite on areas like the mid and lower body can prevent you from fully enjoying your favorite clothes and activities, and make you feel self-conscious even in intimate settings.
Rubi’s Cellulaze Story
Cellulite. Our Los Angeles patients know that it’s a dirty word. Cellulite forms as tissues’ supporting fibers lose flexibility, isolating fat pockets and pushing them against the skin. All of the cellulite treatments we offer aim to loosen those fibers and shrink the fat cells, reducing that banded “cottage cheese” appearance and encouraging skin to retain a firmer, smoother appearance.
SmoothShapes®: Marina Plastic Surgery is the first Los Angeles practice offering SmoothShapes treatment technology. The researchers behind this treatment spent 7 years of intensive trials to develop the system, which uses an exclusive Photomology® combination of laser and light technology with mechanical massage and vacuum pressure to help improve Los Angeles patients’ cellulite in a minimum number of noninvasive treatments. To learn more about the treatment and see it in action, view a video of Dr. Stevens and one of the Real Housewives of Orange County discussing SmoothShapes on Fox 5 News in Las Vegas.
Body by Thermage™: FDA approved to temporarily correct the appearance of cellulite, Thermage can provide great results from just one session. Thermage treatments use radiofrequency energy to prompt collagen to regain flexibility. Thermage can smooth and improve even dark-toned skin, and in the process, restore connective tissue health and stimulate your tissues to continue to smooth over the next 6 months.
Cellulaze™: This innovative method treats cellulite from under the skin to create a smoother, more-elastic surface. The minimally invasive procedure uses laser technology to release the fibrous bands of tissue that can cause a dimpled appearance. Cellulaze also stimulates collagen production to help skin look and feel healthier. Results continue to improve during the months that follow treatment, leading to a more youthful, natural-looking appearance.
truSculpt™: Using radiofrequency energy, truSculpt heats deep tissue, shrinking problematic fat cells and temporarily reducing the look of cellulite. This non-invasive treatment requires only 1 to 2 sessions before you see results.

Advantages of Cellulite Treatments
Cellulite reduction by our treatment specialists in Southern California is one of the most comfortable treatments you can undergo. Our cellulite treatments:
- Involve no incisions or anesthesia.
- Require no downtime. You can usually leave our office in under an hour after you
arrived, and there’s no tissue trauma to require a “recovery period.”
- Cause minimal or no discomfort. Aftereffects are limited to temporary skin warmth
and, rarely, very light bruising for patients who bruise easily.
- Encourage tissue health through the same natural processes that promote better skin tone.
Each patient’s body responds to treatment differently, and some experience more dramatic results than others, but you can increase your chances of enjoying smoother skin in the long-term if you maintain a healthy, nutritious diet and get plenty of exercise.
