Cellulite Treatment

Most women – even supermodels and athletes – have areas of their body that display the dimpled, lumpy texture of cellulite. Dr. Daryl K. Hoffman offers several effective cellulite treatment options in San Jose and Palo Alto, CA, for women who want a smoother, more toned appearance. CelluPulse™ and SmoothShapes® are non-invasive options that get beautiful results. He also performs Cellulaze™, a minimally invasive treatment that uses laser energy to treat cellulite at the source. He is also one of the few surgeons in the area to offer Cellfina®, a minimally invasive treatment that produces remarkable, lasting results.

Your Options

Unlike most other cellulite treatments available today, the treatments Dr. Hoffman offers address both major causes of cellulite: the brittle, fibrous septae (the support system of fat) and the protrusion of accumulated fat cells into the deeper layers of the skin, which causes the “cottage cheese” appearance typical of cellulite. Treatment options include:


Cellfina is a minimally invasive cellulite treatment that uses a microblade to gently release fibrous bands, leading to a smoother skin surface. In its clinical trial, the treatment has proven effective for up to 3 years after a single treatment session.1


Dr. Hoffman stays current on the most recent developments in cellulite treatment, and now offers this minimally invasive, laser-based cellulite treatment. Cellulaze can reduce the appearance of cellulite for a year following just a single session.2

This treatment delivers an acoustic pulse that breaks up the fat cells, promotes collagen growth and relaxes the fibrous septae. CelluPulse smooths the skin in areas affected by cellulite without the need for surgery.


Another non-invasive cellulite treatment, SmoothShapes combines laser and light energy with vacuum and massage to liquefy fat cells and soften the network of fibrous bands (septae) that cause the dimpled appearance.

Dr. Hoffman also performs both surgical and non-surgical cellulite treatments concurrently with procedures such as Smartlipo™ and tumescent liposuction to provide his patients with optimal body contouring results.
