cellutiteDescription: A one-time radio frequency treatment that can reduce the look of cellulite by 40 to 50 percent.

How it’s done: Working below the surface of the skin where cellulite originates, this radio frequency procedure tackles the dimpling issue by disrupting the fibres responsible for creating the “cottage cheese” effect. It works on a much deeper level than other treatments, and results are immediately noticeable and long lasting. The full effect takes up to six weeks to become fully apparent, and improvements can continue for up to three months.

Complications: Bruising, swelling and soreness can occur.

Recovery: Takes up to 12 hours, with support garments worn for four weeks.

Cost: Approximately $4,000.
