Even patients who are thin may have cellulite. Cellulite is caused by fibrous septa between fat lobules. Zeltiq is not effective for cellulite
Zeltiq is not designed for cellulite
LPG For Cellulite
Zeltiq does not work for cellulite. There are other non-surgical options that work quite well for cellulite though. We use LPG or Endermologie, a non-surgical cellulite reduction method that uses suction and traction to help smooth the skin. The session lasts 35 minutes and the entire body is treated. It feels like a deep massage, a mechanical head with 2 rollers is attached to a powerful suction device and a trained technician glides the head over the area to be treated. Most people need from 5-15 treatments. Each session costs $90 or package deals can be obtained.

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq and Cellulite
CoolSculpting is not a treatment for cellulite. It is best to use one of the cellulite specific devices, like SmoothShapes, which offers two specific laser wavelengths, suction and massage to provide an improvement in the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite does not have a cure, and no device is 100% effective. Devices like the SmoothShapes may offer a nice improvement, but we always advise patients that due to the ongoing hormonal and biologic mechanism for cellulite, future treatments will always be recommended a few times per year in order to maintain the results.
Zeltiq is not a cure for Cellulite
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is not a cure for Cellulite - there is no definitive procedure out there that permanently gets rid of Cellulite. Coolsculpting is to reduce stubborn bulges of fat. Theoretically, if fat is reduced in a particular area - cellulite might be improved. We have been able to get the small and medium handpieces onto the inner, outer and posterior thighs on many patients who have had great results in regards to volume reduction.

CoolSculpting not recommended for cellulite
Zeltiq is not indicated for cellulite reduction, but for fat removal. By "lysing," or destroying fat cells, it can contour areas of the body and reduce areas of stubborn fat. Devices like Thermage [Solta] and VelaShape [Syneron] are more highly recommended in treating cellulite. Your habits make you an excellent candidate, so far, though a detailed consultation and history is always needed if you elect to pursue any of these procedures.

CoolSculpting Does Not Remove Cellulite
Coolsculpting represents a significant advance in the treatment of problem fat collections. The technique has been clinically proven and has FDA approval.
Despite this success, the procedure has limitations including an inability to remove cellulite. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not a material but a structural abnormality that results from fibrous bands beneath the skin that cause dimpling of the skin. Coolsculpting has no impact on these fibrous septae and for this reason has no effect on cellulite.
At this point in time, there’s no effective treatment for cellulite. This is more than made up for, by the large number of gimmicks that are currently being promoted.
CoolSculpting not designed to treat Cellulite
Unfortunately, CoolSculpting is not effective at treating cellulite. It is a great treatment for fat reduction. CoolSculpt works to selectively freeze fat cells and program cell death. The fat cells then are eliminated from your body over the next few months. Cellulite is something that is very difficult to treat because it is caused by fibrous connective tissue in between the fat layers that manifests as dimpling on the surface of the skin.
