What is cellulite treatment?

Cellulite is a unique type of fatty deposit that cannot be treated with liposuction. The reason is that cellulite has less to do with fatty deposits and more to do with connective tissues in your skin that pull the skin down around fatty deposits, creating the signature dimpled appearance. Proper cellulite treatment must not only address the fatty deposits, but also work to improve the overall tone of the connective tissues.

How does cellulite treatment work?

In our NJ and NYC offices, our board-certified dermatologists utilize laser body contouring for cellulite treatment. These systems use advanced technologies to destroy the fat cells and improve the overall tone of your skin. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the natural elimination process of your body takes over. Other body area-specific treatments for cellulite include:

Sculptra® Butt Lift

Ultherapy™ Butt Lift

When will I see results?

While you don’t necessarily see immediate results after cellulite treatment, you will see them materialize over the months following your treatment. Patients often enjoy the full results of their treatment approximately three months after treatment. The immediacy of your results also depends upon the specific modality of treatment utilized. This will be fully covered during your initial consultation in NJ or NYC.

Is the procedure painful?

Most patients find cellulite treatment in NJ to be comfortable. Only local anesthesia is used. You may feel a warming sensation during the procedure. During your initial consultation, your dermatologist will cover your pain tolerance to ensure necessary measures are in place to ensure you are comfortable during the entire procedure.

Can cellulite treatment be combined with other treatments?

Absolutely! At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists in NYC and NJ, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive approach to cosmetic improvement. Rather than simply perform a single procedure, we prefer to give our patients an array of rejuvenating options. Dr. Goldberg may recommend cellulite treatment in conjunction with other treatments, such as body contouring or stretch mark removal, to give you the best possible cosmetic results.

What is the cost of cellulite treatment?

Because every patient is different, a quote for cellulite treatment in NYC can only be provided after a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this time, the two of you will discuss your specific cosmetic goals and reach an agreement regarding the desired treatment. Our office accepts CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you get the treatment you desire.

How long do the results last?

Our NJ cellulite treatment eradicates the fatty cellulite deposits that you have right now. With proper diet and exercise, your results last for years. Some medical conditions, lifestyle choices, and pregnancy may cause you to develop new cellulite.

How do I get started?

Dr. Goldberg and his staff will be happy to discuss cellulite treatment with you. Please feel free to call for a private consultation at one of our offices in NYC or NJ.
