I had been searching for years for a way to reduce the appearance of cellulite in my butt and thighs. I had gone to dozens of doctors but nobody was able to provide any real results. Finally, one doctor brought up Cellfina, which was FDA-cleared in 2015. In one study, 98% of the patients saw an improvement in the appearance of their cellulite. I was so excited about the possibility of reducing the appearance of my cellulite. The cost varies depending on a few different factors such as how much cellulite you want to get rid of and the size of the treated area. It is possible to see results just from a single treatment if the area is not large. I went for two Cellfina treatments because I treated my butt and thighs. The treatment will cost more if you get it done in New York City or Los Angeles than it will if you get it done in a smaller city. The average cost though is around $3,800 - $6,200 for the procedure.

I'm 46 years old, and I was unhappy for years with the cellulite on my thighs and butt. I was frustrated that despite working out and using every popular over-the-counter cream, my skin continued to ripple with cellulite when I walked in shorts or sunbathed. I was not really interested in getting any invasive plastic surgery so I decided to look over other procedures that could give me lasting results and remove my unattractive cellulite dimples. I chose Cellfina because it is FDA approved to treat cellulite, and I am so happy with my results! Cellfina successfully broke connective bands of fat from under my skin that caused my skin to ripple with cellulite. Since the treatment, my butt and thighs are tight and smooth. Its been nearly two years and I am still experiencing an outstanding, 90-percent improvement! My procedure was somewhere around $2,000 dollars. I financed it, and my monthly payments were affordable. Cellfina was well worth every penny.

I don't remember when I started to notice my cellulite. I spent years of my life being self-conscious about how I looked and decided to do something about it. I tried many drugstore remedies, body wraps, creams, etc., and none of that was effective. I finally decided to consult a cosmetic surgeon who recommended a cellulite treatment called Cellfina.

I decided to try Cellfina because the procedure is highly-appealing. It is a minimally invasive procedure and its painless. Cellfina uses vacuuming and subsection to fight cellulite at the source. It breaks down the connective tissue that causes cellulite. As far as costs, it really depends on where you have the procedure performed and the extensive nature of the procedure. At my initial consultation, I was told that the cost of the procedure could range from $3,000 to $6,000.

If you have cellulite, then you have probably been searching for an effective form of treatment for years. I went to over five doctors before one of them mentioned Cellfina, a new technology that was approved by the FDA in 2015. After a bit of research, I found that the device had been approved for over two years. This was the longest any cellulite treatment device has ever received. The approval it got was based on a study of 55 patients. After using the Cellfina, the appearance of cellulite improved in 98% of the patients. 

In terms of cost, it varies depending on various factors. For instance, it will depend on how extensive the cellulite is. Besides, the geographical location in which you get the procedure done will affect the cost. However, you can expect to pay $3,000 to $6,000 anywhere within the US. 

After 3 consultations and searching online, I found that a cellfina procedure could cost anywhere from $3,500 to $6,500, depending on how much cellulite you have. If you call and ask for an estimate over the phone, they will tell you to come in for a consultation to get an accurate quote. They rate you on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being cellulite free, 3 meaning you have some pits, depressions, dimples, and 5 being extreme. I paid around $3,800 and even though it was on the lower end of the range, I still used the financing option. I knew it was going to cost me, and I had a credit card ready in case they couldn’t do payments. Check with your surgeon to see if they offer financing or other flexible payment options. If you can’t afford it, put it on a credit card and make payments. Now, I can proudly wear a bikini without a sarong wrap. The cellfina cellulite treatment is so worth it!
