If you are looking to improve the appearance of cellulite, you probably already know that creams and lotions don’t work. Fortunately, there are cellulite reduction treatments like VelaShape that do. However, VelaShape is an elective procedure so insurance companies won’t cover the cost. Consequently, patients must get details of how much cellulite reduction treatment costs, before proceeding.

What causes cellulite

Cellulite is a condition that affects almost 85% of all women, but very few men. Cellulite is normally seen on the buttocks and thighs. It usually occurs when the connective tissue that is woven throughout the fat layer beneath the surface of the skin contracts, and pulls the fat layer down. The pressure causes the fat to push upwards against the skin causing the dimpling that is referred to as cellulite.

How much does Cellulite reduction cost in Long Beach

The cost of cellulite reduction depends on the type of technology used, and the severity of the cellulite.

VelaShape is an FDA approved non-invasive treatment that uses infrared light to reduce fat layers, and improve the appearance of cellulite. It also shapes the body.

The cost of VelaShape cellulite reduction treatment in Long Beach averages about $1,200, but the price may differ between patients. The cost will be influenced by the size of the area that will be treated, and the specific area of the body being targeted.

When choosing a treatment like Velashape, it is important to seek out a practice with experienced staff that is familiar with the technology. Therefore cost should not be the only deciding factor when selecting a practice.
