What is cellulite treatment?

Cellulite is a unique type of fatty deposit that cannot be treated with liposuction. The reason is that cellulite has less to do with fatty deposits and more to do with connective tissues in your skin that pull the skin down around fatty deposits, creating the signature dimpled appearance. Proper cellulite treatment must not only address the fatty deposits, but also work to improve the overall tone of the connective tissues.

How does cellulite treatment work?

In our NJ and NYC offices, our board-certified dermatologists utilize laser body contouring for cellulite treatment. These systems use advanced technologies to destroy the fat cells and improve the overall tone of your skin. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the natural elimination process of your body takes over. Other body area-specific treatments for cellulite include:

Sculptra® Butt Lift

Ultherapy™ Butt Lift

When will I see results?

While you don’t necessarily see immediate results after cellulite treatment, you will see them materialize over the months following your treatment. Patients often enjoy the full results of their treatment approximately three months after treatment. The immediacy of your results also depends upon the specific modality of treatment utilized. This will be fully covered during your initial consultation in NJ or NYC.

Is the procedure painful?

Most patients find cellulite treatment in NJ to be comfortable. Only local anesthesia is used. You may feel a warming sensation during the procedure. During your initial consultation, your dermatologist will cover your pain tolerance to ensure necessary measures are in place to ensure you are comfortable during the entire procedure.

Can cellulite treatment be combined with other treatments?

Absolutely! At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists in NYC and NJ, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive approach to cosmetic improvement. Rather than simply perform a single procedure, we prefer to give our patients an array of rejuvenating options. Dr. Goldberg may recommend cellulite treatment in conjunction with other treatments, such as body contouring or stretch mark removal, to give you the best possible cosmetic results.

What is the cost of cellulite treatment?

Because every patient is different, a quote for cellulite treatment in NYC can only be provided after a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this time, the two of you will discuss your specific cosmetic goals and reach an agreement regarding the desired treatment. Our office accepts CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you get the treatment you desire.

How long do the results last?

Our NJ cellulite treatment eradicates the fatty cellulite deposits that you have right now. With proper diet and exercise, your results last for years. Some medical conditions, lifestyle choices, and pregnancy may cause you to develop new cellulite.

How do I get started?

Dr. Goldberg and his staff will be happy to discuss cellulite treatment with you. Please feel free to call for a private consultation at one of our offices in NYC or NJ.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
