Insurance and Cellulite

Cellulite is a cosmetic problem and is not covered by any medical insurance. Thermage will help treat cellulite but health insurance will not cover cosmetic procedures like Thermage.

Cellulite is just a normal way that fat is stored and is very common in women. Medicaid will not cover this.
