The Costs of Cellulite Treatments

The costs of professional clinical #cellulite reduction treatments depend on the #quantity of zones being treated and the #size of those zones.  Generally, the most common zones (which are the posterior #thigh and #buttocks) typically cost our #patients $2,000 or less for the cellulite treatment program. If more than one zone is included in the treatment, the cost for the 2nd and 3rd zones may be greatly reduced in cost.  Also, individuals who have achieved satisfactory #results may return once every three to four month for maintenance. Consulting in-person with your board-certified plastic surgeon will provide you more insight as to what the #costs may be for your treatment.

The cost for Cellulaze in the California San Francisco Bay Area ranges from about $3000-4000 per area with discounts usually for multiple areas. Hope this is helpful. Best to see someone with an expertise in Cellulaze than have a discounted price and poor results. Dean Vistnes.

Thank you for your question. The best treatment for cellulite is Cellulaze. The average cost is $5,000-$7,000 depending on the size of the area to be treated and the city or town where you choose to have your cellulite laser treatment.

Cellulaze cost

Cellulaze cost depends on the severity and extent of your cellulite.  In other words, the cost is based on the size/area of treatment and the length of the procedure. Cellulaze is a one time treatment that utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength laser to accomplish 3 things:  1) melt away fat bulging out 2) break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and 3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence.   The procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and number of areas being treated). To see your final results takes between 3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure and find a plastic surgeon who performs the procedure near you. Best of luck!

Cost depends on treatment modality

The cost of your cellulite treatment depends on your treatment modality.  I recommend you consider Cellulaze.

Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours and can be safely done  under local or just IV sedation.  It is an FDA approved treatment for cellulite and requires only one treatment.  Hope this is helpful.

SmoothShapes Treatment for Cellulite

SmoothShapes technology is promising because it offers patients a non-invasive, painless treatment that provides longer lasting results in the improvement of cellulite. With this treatment, collagen is regenerated, circulation is improved, and metabolic processes are restored. Patients have improved skin tone and texture with less “jiggle.”

The procedure is safe and comfortable providing longer lasting results that you can see and feel. Optimum results are achieved by completing a series of eight treatments preferably twice per week for four weeks. Results continue to improve up to six months after treatment. Treatments are about $275 each but packages are usually available.
