The cost of a cellulite treatment depends on the number of zones and the overall size of the zones. Typically, the most common zones – the thighs and buttocks – cost between $2,000 and $3,000. However, should patients opt to undergo cellulite treatment on additional zones, they will receive a discount on the cost of their program.
None of the external, non-invasive cellulite treatments at SpaMedica in Toronto have significant downtime or risk. It is not uncommon for patients who undergo cellulite treatment at SpaMedica to return to work immediately after the treatment.
The length of a single treatment varies according to the severity of the patient’s cellulite. However, on average, every cellulite treatment can be performed in approximately 1 hour. It is common for patients to undergo 4-8 weekly treatments. By the end of the sixth week, patients generally notice a 20-50% reduction in cellulite.
Cellulite appears when enlarged fat cells push up against the skin, and strong, fibrous bands tug down, leading to the dimpled skin texture known as cellulite dimpling. Several factors, including changes in body weight, genetic factors, hormonal shifts during pregnancy, and aging, can influence this effect. Effective strategies to eliminate cellulite often focus on targeted fat reduction and managing excess fat, which helps smooth out the dimples and leads to a more even skin texture.
For women, few skin issues are as common as cellulite. Studies show cellulite impacts about 90% of women at some point in their lives, and it is estimated that 100 million women in the United States complain of dimpled skin.
Fortunately, SpaMedica offers minimally invasive procedures designed to treat skin that appears lumpy, bumpy, or irregular. By utilizing state-of-the-art radiofrequency and ultrasound technology, the doctors at SpaMedica can make skin appear smoother and softer.

There are two ways to get rid of cellulite through our non-surgical solutions. Both treatments aim to improve the skin’s appearance by addressing the structural causes of cellulite.
Laser Treatment for Cellulite Reduction: Laser treatments can involve inserting a small laser fiber beneath the skin, which is used to heat and break down the fibrous septae that cause cellulite dimpling. This process can also stimulate collagen production, improving skin elasticity and texture. The duration of the results can vary, and while some might experience improvements for six months to a year, others might see longer-lasting effects depending on the individual’s response to the treatment and lifestyle factors.
Radiofrequency Treatment for Cellulite: Radiofrequency treatments are non-invasive and work by heating the deeper layers of the skin to improve blood flow, stimulate collagen production, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. RF treatments usually require multiple sessions to see noticeable improvements, and the results can vary depending on the device used, the area treated, and individual factors such as skin elasticity and the severity of cellulite.

Due to its minimally invasive approach, SpaMedica’s cellulite reduction treatments are not considered painful. After the procedure, patients can expect a bit of discomfort, tenderness, and swelling in the targeted areas. However, these sensations should subside the following day.
Cellulite is believed to be an abnormality of the microcirculation of the skin. Chronically poor oxygenation in the fat and swelling from within fight fat compartments lead to severe inflammation, eventually resulting in the growth of fibrous bands. These bands pull the skin down, creating the deep pits seen in advanced cellulite. At the same time, the swollen fat trapped in the tight compartments begins to clump together, forming the nodules that are characteristic of cellulite.
The results of SpaMedica’s cellulite reduction treatments are intended to be long-term. Without routine treatment, there is a 93% patient satisfaction following a single cellulite reduction treatment alone. However, to help maintain the results, SpaMedica offers a post-treatment maintenance program that utilizes radiofrequency, ultrasound, and shockwave devices to prolong and protect the procedure results. These single treatment sessions are recommended every 3-4 months.
