Laser Cellulite Removal
Lasers are used for a multitude of skin related procedures but few are aware that lasers are able to treat unsightly cellulite.
Cellulite is the dimpled skin that is sometimes described as a cottage cheese look. It is a lumpy appearance that is most commonly found in the thigh and buttocks area. It is primarily a condition found on women and rarely seen on men. This is why women are by far the majority of patients seeking laser cellulite removal.
The key to preventing cellulite is to exercise, maintain good body circulation, and eat a balanced and healthy diet. Although most of us know that keeping our bodies fit will help avoid such a condition, many of us fall short of our good intentions. That’s the reason that over 75 percent of the female population complain of cellulite and seeking laser cellulite removal.
It has been discovered that laser cellulite removal is a successful way to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Laser Cellulite Removal and Massage
The most common method of cellulite treatment combines massage and the power of the laser to help sculpt and smooth the area. The area is given a deep massage to help smooth out the area which is administered using flat paddles.
The treatments can be quite painful but the recovery period is almost nonexistent. The average number of visits runs around 10 for a major area such as the buttocks or thighs. The sessions will commonly last around 35 minutes.
As with any type of laser related treatment, laser cellulite removal is no different. Your health care specialist may give you a price on the entire package or charge you by the treatment. He should be able to give you an accurate appraisal of cost and time that will be necessary to get positive results.
Laser Cellulite Removal – Pricing
Pricing will depend on many factors. A broad average is $100 to $150 charge per session. A possible discount when offered as a bundled package. Fortunately, the maintenance treatments are usually in the ball park of $100 or less. Laser cellulite removal will reduce but not entirely eliminate all signs of cellulite.
