The cost of a cellulite reduction treatment depends on the number of zones being treated, as well as 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 have any significant downtime or risk. It is not uncommon for patients who undergo cellulite reduction 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 reduction 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 is a very common occurrence for many, and is caused by fibrous tethers that run through fat tissue and pull on the skin, creating a dimpled appearance. It can be caused by rapid weight gain or weight loss, genetics, pregnancy, or aging.
For women, there are few skin issues that are as common as cellulite. Indeed, 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.

Cellfina is a revolutionary cellulite treatment device that significantly reduces cellulite and dimples in the buttocks and thighs. The procedure treats the deep dimples that characterize cellulite. A tiny micro-probe and blade are passed horizontally across the cellulite at 6 and 10 millimeters deep, dividing and releasing the vertical bands that cause the dimple. With the bands divided, the skin can be smoothened.
A CelluTite treatment emits radiofrequency energy to reduce cellulite nodules and smooth out tough skin. Additionally, the radiofrequency probe heats the dermal skin tissue directly, thickening the actual cellulitic skin. This minimally invasive heating device is perfect for reducing cellulite in the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms!
A CelluLase treatment is an ideal option for patients with significant dimples, nodules, and lax skin. Manufactured by Cynosure, the laser involved in a CelluLase treatment is inserted directly into the cellulite, reducing nodules and thickening skin in the process.

Cellulite is believed to be an abnormality of the microcirculation of the skin. Indeed, 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. Indeed, without any additional treatments, 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 results of the procedure. These single treatment sessions are recommended every 3-4 months.
