What is BTL Cellutone?
BTL Cellutone uses therapeutic vibrations to increase lymphatic drainage, waste elimination and blood flow. BTL Cellutone is ideal for patients who want a safe, non-invasive body shaping and tightening procedure.

Will I need more than one treatment?
Patients typically have between 4 and 6 sessions over the course of a few weeks. Dr. Vivian Bucay administers BTL Cellutone on an individualized basis, to make sure that you achieve results that are right for you.
How Does BTL Cellutone Work?
The Cellutone device by BTL Aesthetics has been devised to work with the body's lymphatic system. We've only recently begun to recognize the role that the lymphatic system plays in body contouring. As we have gained understanding through medical research, treatments like Cellutone have become possible. The Cellutone device, as it sounds, is designed to minimize the appearance of cellulite. The primary way in which this device works is through the promotion of lymphatic drainage from target areas. In addition to encouraging the efficient movement of blood flow through a specific area, Cellutone also increases circulation through superficial tissues (a function that decreases with age), targets fatty tissue for metabolism, and reduces inflammation that contributes to fat accumulation.
Do Cellutone Treatments Hurt?
Comfort is a primary concern for most patients considering any type of cosmetic treatment. Device manufacturers understand this and weigh the objective of comfort against optimal cosmetic results. Like sister devices, Cellutone by BTL sits right in the middle. Your treatment is nonsurgical and completely non-invasive. However, to be efficient, energy must pass through the skin to reach the appropriate depth of the target tissue. During your Cellutone treatments, you might feel vibrating sensations through your skin and superficial subcutaneous tissue. You may feel it, but that doesn't mean it hurts. Most patients report feeling a vibrating and warming sensation during their treatments.
What are the Common Cellutone Treatment Areas?
Cellutone is designed to treat the appearance of cellulite on various areas of the body, including the:
- Upper arms
- Abdomen and flanks
Can I Combine Cellutone with other Treatments?
At Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics, we maintain a comprehensive perspective of patient care. We understand the various aspects of the aging process and recommend treatments based on each person's concerns and goals. Case-dependent, we may recommend a combination of Cellutone and CoolSculpting, knowing that these two techniques have synergistic effects that can achieve optimal results when applied correctly.
How Quickly Will I See My Results from Cellutone Treatment?
Cellulite is one of the most challenging cosmetic concerns we have to contend with. It's not fully a "fat" issue and isn't fully a skin issue. Cellutone treatments work via synergistic effects within the epidermis, the dermis, and also the layer of subcutaneous fat. The effects of your treatment begin to occur immediately. However, the visible effects of the actions beneath the surface can take weeks to build. This is the "downside" of nonsurgical body contouring treatments, the element of patience that is needed to see that the body is doing what it's intended to do: burn subcutaneous fat and remodel healthy collagen.
BTL Cellutone results
Results may vary from patient to patient. Patients have reported that they have seen visible improvements after only one treatment. You may resume regular activities immediately after treatment.
