What Is The Cost of Cellulaze? Are The Results Permanent?

Cellulaze is Permanent
Cellulaze tightens the skin and reorganizes the connective fibers within the fat to permanently change the architecture of cellulite. It takes about 3 months to see definitive changes, and about 1 year for complete remodeling to occur. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and has very little discomfort. Only a single treatment is required to achieve lasting results.

The cost of Cellulaze will depend on the number and size of areas of the body to be treated. It could be as low as $2,500 if one or 2 areas are treated, but as high as several thousand dollars if multiple areas are treated. Other costs to consider when deciding on this treatment is the anesthesia. A general anesthesia will be more costly than a local anesthesia. I tend to do these under a local anesthesia unless other types of surgeries are being done concurrently. Treatment results are long lasting. Studies are showing the improvements from the Cellulaze treatment lasting 2-3 years. Further studies are on going.
Brazilian Cellulite Treatment Cost vs. Cellulaze
I have found that the Brazilian Cellulite Treatment that I discussed on The Doctors remains the most longlasting solution to cellulite. Cost varies, but ranges from 1500 to 3500 dollars.
Cost of cellulaze depends on the area on which you want treated. Each surgeon has their own pricing, it is best to have a consultation to get more information about procedure and price.
Cost and Results of Cellulaze
The treatment could take over two hours on severe cases and prices should be around 5,000 dollars. Severe cases will have significant improvement and the results should be long lasting.
Cellulaze, a minimally invasive cellulite reduction treatment, costs vary but the results seem to be permanent at two years.
Cellulaze is the first proven minimally invasive surgical procedure that appears to permanently treats cellulite. The costs depend on how large an area on your buttock and or thigh is treated and whether you require an anesthetic. The procedure has been proven to be effective in reducing cellulite in clinical trials and in patients followed out to two years.
Cellulaze for long lasting treatment of cellulite
Thanks for your questions, chiefette. The cost of Cellulaze is based on how much cellulite is being treated, and has been noted on realself to be around $5700. Since Cellulaze is such a new procedure, results are only going back a few years, but they have not changed on the patients that were in the studies if they maintained their weight and lifestyle well.
Cellulaze is the first FDA approved minimally invasive, one-time treatment for cellulite. It utilizes a 1440 nm side-firing laser fiber optic to treat the three main causes of cellulite: It breaks down the fatty bulges, then cuts the fibrous septae that cause dimpling, then finally stimulates the dermis to shrink and thicken in order to improve the look of you cellulite areas.
Good luck in your endeavors!
