You might have been battling with cellulite problems on your thighs, buttocks, or legs for a quite long time and unfortunately, with zero results. Despite the wide variety of offered cellulite treatments and products, removing cellulite permanently is still a long debate to do, while reducing it prominent appearance is not easy as pie. Ninety percent of women are researched to undergo the lumpy and bumpy skin disorder coined as cellulite, and almost the same percentage is seeking for an effective treatment to perform. Thanks to the advanced technology, nowadays, we can find a variety of procedures aimed for banishing cellulite from the skin, or the least, reduce its noticeable appearance. One the most-discussed procedure is the laser therapy. This therapy, despite being costly, is said to have a more significant effect on cellulite compared to various topical products and home remedies.
How much does laser cellulite removal cost?
Compared to topical products and home remedies for cellulite you might possibly have tried, laser therapy may be much more costly. However, with laser therapy, the effect can last longer than 6 months to 2 years, which for many people is worthy. In case you have given up any natural or topical cellulite treatments, you can give laser a try.
How expensive the laser therapy can be depending highly on the size of treated area. The newest laser therapy developed for aiming cellulite called Cellulaze and CelluSmooth cost around $4,000 to $7,500, again, depending on how large the targeted area is and how severe the cellulite is. The severity of cellulite—means how lumpy and bumpy the skin is—plays a significant role in determining the cost you are required to spend, since it determines how many laser treatments to be performed before you can see the prominent effects. Conventional laser therapy that needs to be done 3 to 4 times before showing its effects costs around $1,200 per treatment.
In addition, the reputation of the treatment, the treatment place, and the dermatologist may also determine the cost of the therapy. You also need to hold a survey on how much the therapy costs in different regions, as the city or town you choose may require different laser treatment costs. Despite the quality of laser cellulite treatment you choose, you need to put in mind that even this treatment is not a permanent way of getting rid of cellulite. Our physiological risk factors determine cellulite formation. Hence, the treatment will be useless if you do not stick to your plan on controlling your weight, diet, and hydration.
What to prepare before having laser cellulite removal?
Laser cellulite removal tends to be painless, since it works by aiming light to melt the fat tissues to be disposed through the lymphatic system. Aside from the money you need to prepare before having the treatment performed, it is better to prepare yourself for temporary side effects from the therapy. Be alert that laser therapy will:
- Require some maintenance therapies that should be done twice or several times after the first surgery done. Even with the most up-to-date laser cellulite removal, touch-up treatments will be required every once a year.
- Cause some bruising and swelling around the treated area. Recent laser therapies even require you to wear a specially-designed compression clothing during recovery period that may last up to two weeks.
- Possibly trigger some future effects that recently, are not found out yet. Since laser therapies are relatively new, this is not impossible, although most women that once have undergone the treatment state that the therapy is harmless, painless, and with minimal harmful side effects.
