Cellulite Treatment

woman's buttocksThose pesky dimples and bumps caused by cellulite that appear on your legs and buttocks tend to want to stick around forever. It seems that no matter how often you exercise or how many changes you make to your diet, the cellulite still is still there. That is where cellulite treatment can help.

Dr. Vivian Bucay and her team of aestheticians offer a variety of cellulite treatment options that will dramatically reduce the appearance of dimples or bumps on the legs, buttocks, or hips.

What Cellulite Treatment Options are Available?

When patients come to us looking for cellulite treatment options, we often recommend trying full body cosmetic procedures that are designed to target fat cells. These treatments slowly kill or reduce the number of fat cells in the body. When fat cells are reduced or killed, it can dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics offers a number of treatment options that use various techniques to rid the body of stubborn fat cells. Some of the treatment options available include CoolSculpting©, EXILIS, Vanquish, and PelleFirm.

What to Expect During a Cellulite Treatment?

The experience you will have during an appointment for cellulite treatment will vary depending upon which treatment option you are using. Some treatment options, like PelleFirm, rely upon radio frequencies to melt away the unwanted fat, while other treatments use laser therapies.

A single appointment for cellulite treatment will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. The length of time it takes will depend on the treatment that is being administered.

How Long Does it Take to See Results After Cellulite Treatment?

Everyone is always anxious to see results after receiving cellulite treatment, but it may take a while. Some cellulite treatments, such as CoolSculpting©, can take up to two months before you see any real results from the treatment.

The amount of time it takes to see results is unique for each of our patients. Dr. Vivian Bucay and her staff can provide you with a better understanding of how long it may take to see results and give you recommendations for treatment options that may produce results in a given timeframe.

The last few weeks have borne witness to the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus known as COVID-19. This is a novel virus that we do not fully understand, but whose devastating effects have been felt around the world, with no regards for borders or economies. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been forever changed by this pandemic. In the spirit of containing this pandemic, I, Dr. Bhandari, and our incredible family of dedicated professionals who make up Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics have made the difficult but necessary decision to keep our offices closed through April 3, pending any further developments.


Our goal is to ensure the safety and well being of our patients and our team. We are grateful to all of you for your loyalty and understanding and look forward to the time when we can resume doing what we do best - caring for you. Until then, please adhere to the recommended guidelines regarding handwashing and social distancing. Please remember that social distancing doesn't mean social isolation - the digital age allows us to be there for each other.


Warmest wishes to all of you for continued good health and strength,


Vivian Bucay, MD
