Cellupulse | Acoustic Wave Therapy

Frequently Asked Questions


What is unique about acoustic wave treatment?
(C.L.S. Client after Cellupulse treatment to thighs.)

Nearly all other anti-cellulite therapies incorporate some type of deep kneading or massage in order to decrease the build up of lymphatic fluid. This temporarily improves the appearance, but it does not address the primary cause of cellulite, thus the fluid quickly re-accumulates.

Acoustic wave treatment (cellupulse) is truly unique because it treats the primary cause of cellulite (the hardened connective tissue), which ultimately improves not only the circulation to the tissue, but also improves the lymphatic drainage, reducing the accumulated fluid within the tissue. This allows for long lasting results. Cellupulse also increases the collagen in the dermal layer, allowing for a more supple, youthful appearance and tone. Clinical trials demonstrate 110% improvement in skin elasticity.

Additional positive effects on the tissue include:

  • Fat-splitting phospholipases on the fat cell membrane are activated, decreasing some of the content of the fat cells in the superficial fat layer.
  • Increase in collagen fibrils in the dermal layer (increase in dermal thickness and elasticity).

What appearance changes can I expect from Cellupulse cellulite treatment?

  1. Skin tightening. Better skin structure and contour (clinical trials show 110% improvement in skin elasticity).
  2. Smoother appearance. The dimpled cellulite areas will become more smooth as the connective tissue support is stimulated and collagen formation is activated.
  3. Body slimming and improved tone. Stimulation of lipolysis, increased blood flow and improved lymphatic drainage leads to reduced circumference of treated area and a more tone appearance.

Are there any side effects from Cellupulse cellulite treatment?

Acoustic wave technology has been used in medicine for over 20 years (in many other areas of the body) and has been proven to have a high level of safety. It is a noninvasive procedure (there is no incision) and there is no heat generated.

The only side effect or complaint of patients and test subjects is some small discomfort during the procedure that immediately subsides after treatment.

Some individuals will feel more comfortable if they take 1 or 2 tylenol approximately 20 minutes prior to the session. Advil, ibuprofen, aleve and aspirin are not recommended during your treatment period as this may lead to temporary bruising at the treatment site.

What is the cost of Cellupulse cellulite treatment?

The cost will depend on the treatment site and number of sessions. Cost also varies depending on what state you are in. Typical cost is anywhere from $200-300 per session per treatment site, but various packages are available that will ultimately cost approx $1800 total for the first treatment site and $1200 for the second treatment site.

How many treatment sessions are required with Cellupulse?

For the best results, 6-8 treatment sessions should be completed. This will vary depending on the individual and the treatment site. Typically this is accomplished over one month or approximately twice per week.

How long does a Cellupulse treatment session take?

Again this will vary depending on the area being treated. Some women will want both the front of the thigh and the back of the thigh plus the buttocks treated all in one session, which takes slightly longer than individuals who are treating a smaller surface area such as the upper arms. Typically sessions will take 20 minutes or less- this includes prep time and clean up time (It is necessary to apply a gel to the treated area so that the waves can transfer from the device through the body).

Cosmetic Laser Solutions in North Scottsdale offers an at-home treatment option. A medical assistant will come to your home and provide you with a treatment session. There is an extra charge for this service, but it is well worth it for busy women. The medical assistant is very nice and professional. She is available during some after hours and weekends.

When can I expect to see results Cellupulse?

Typically individuals will begin to notice improvement about midway through treatment (after the 3rd or 4th treatment). Appearance of skin improvement will continue with the additional treatments. Here is an important fact that has been noted in the studies- The appearance will continue to improve over the next 3 months after all the treatment sessions have been completed.

Is Cellupulse treatment permanent?

The treatment is very promising and long lasting, but few things in the human body are truly permanent. Our tissue is dynamic and is unfortunately always changing and aging. The current recommendation is to have a “touch-up” session to maintain your new appearance approximately once every 6-12 months. This means only 1 or 2 treatment sessions once or twice a year (not the full 6-8 treatment sessions again).

The most beneficial habits to have in order to preserve the desired appearance include staying well hydrated, regular exercise and maintaining close to normal body weight.

Cellupulse: The Most Advanced Treatment Method Against Cellulite

Cellupulse interest and popularity is driven by its strong scientific background and supportive research literature.

Cellulite is nearly universal in all women past the age of puberty, irrespective of race and ethnic background. We are a nation obsessed with cellulite. We splash pictures of celebrity cellulite across every gossip magazine and search the internet for celebrity cellulite secrets, cellulite home remedies, cellulite exercises and “natural” ways to get rid of cellulite.

Sadly, cellulite is natural if you are a woman. It affects 85-98% of us, no matter how thin or fit we may be. The only natural way to get rid of cellulite would be to turn the clock back in time, which is essentially what cellupulse cellulite treatment does to the connective tissue supporting the fat cells in the dimpled, cellulite-laden skin.

Is it possible to get rid of cellulite?

Yes, but the solution to cellulite doesn’t come in a jar of cellulite cream or a cellulite exercise program. (If the solution to cellulite were that simple, no woman would have cellulite).

Research has suggested that acoustic waves (cellupulse) are effective in disrupting the sclerotic fibrous septae responsible for the uneven appearance of cellulite. Acoustic wave therapy has also been demonstrated to increase the thickness of the reticular dermis and decrease the protrusion of fat into the area.

Where can I get Cellupulse Treatment? 

If you live in Arizona, I recommend Cosmetic Laser Solutions. They have an excellent staff and are well experienced with Cellupulse. There are 2 Cosmetic Laser Solutions locations- one in North Scottsdale and one in Mesa. They also offer an after hours service for an extra charge. A medical assistant can visit your home and provide a treatment.

Are there Cellulite exercises to get rid of cellulite?

If there were such a thing as cellulite exercises that effectively get rid of cellulite, women wouldn’t have cellulite. God knows we devote our precious time, money and effort to look our best. If we could squat or leg-lift our cellulite away, you bet we would!

If there were some magical cellulite exercises, our foremothers would have discovered them long ago. That sacred information would be passed to each consecutive generation and know no geographical boundary. (No. Unfortunately there is no such thing as cellulite exercises.)  

As all women already know, no fat – including cellulite can be selectively targeted for reduction through exercise. When we lose fat through diet or exercise, we lose it throughout our body. If we lose fat in our thighs, the fat in our face and breasts and everywhere else shrinks as well. We don’t simply get to choose the body area that will lose fat. Cellupulse allows us to target our cellulite trouble spots. You can selectively target your thighs, buttocks, abdomen or upper arms. Target exercise with weights or resistance training can of course build muscle in selective areas, but our muscle tissue is much deeper in our body, far below the dermal layer of skin and below the layer of fat.

Thus no matter how toned your underlying muscles get, it does not effect the layer of fat. Cellupulse treatment effectively increases the collagen in the dermal layer and improves the skin’s elasticity (tone).

How does Cellupulse cellulite treatment work?

Acoustic wave therapy (Cellupulse) impacts the major causes of cellulite: fibrous septae and protrusion of fat into the lower dermis. This also allows for improved circulation and lymphatic drainage in addition to addressing the primary pathology.

The pressure wave or shock wave of cellupulse passes through the skin and fat to impact the fibrous septae. Improved elasticity of the previously hardened connective tissue restores the tissue to a supple, smooth texture. 

Neovascularization (the natural or organic process whereby the body tissue develops new capillaries,) ensures better exchanges to the connective tissue (addressing the root cause of the problem).

The improved exchange allows for new collagen fibrils, which thickens the dermal layer of the skin leading to noticeable improvement in skin texture.
