About CELLULITE REDUCTION
Nonsurgical cellulite reduction at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in San Diego, CA is a noninvasive treatment performed with advanced ThermiSmooth Body technology, which works by using radiofrequency waves to heat the deep layers of the skin. This process increases your body's natural production of collagen to produce a younger, tighter look to the skin. This simultaneously enhances the health of the skin and provides stunning and natural outcomes. A safe and efficient procedure, cellulite reduction therapy with ThermiSmooth is frequently performed for patients by our skilled team of medical assistants either by itself or to complement a surgical procedure, like a thigh lift or mommy makeover.

"I must start by saying that I very rarely write reviews. But I recently recalled my experience with Dr. Laverson, and felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review that he truly earned. My situation was also quite different from most of his typical work, so I hope this also attests to his wide-ranging surgical skill. A couple of years ago I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident and wound up at Palomar Hospital. According to my family, doctors, and nurses, my face was pretty much smashed to bits and looked extremely gruesome. Some parts of my face were even missing. Anyway, Dr. Laverson was the on-call plastic surgeon that night. Once the E.R. doctors had gotten me stable, he had the impossible task of trying to fix my Freddy Krueger face by looking at an old picture of me on my fiance’s cell phone. Or at least it should’ve been impossible based on how bad my condition was...Fast forward a day or two, after my swelling from the surgery had gone down in order to see the results, my family and some coworkers came in to see. NONE of them could tell a difference from before the accident, including the coworkers who hadn’t seen my smashed face. Somehow, some way, Dr. Laverson was able to use plates, grafts, and whatever other tools and tricks in his brilliant surgical mind to make me look IDENTICAL to how I looked before splattering multiple pieces of my face on the side of a road. Shortly after my family, friends, and coworkers visited, Dr. Laverson himself visited as well to observe the post-swelling results, see how I was feeling, and to follow up on all the medical stuff he knew to look out for. He even asked my family and I if there was anything out of place, or changes we’d like to make, since he was happy to do another surgery to get everything exactly right. Because everything was already perfect I didn’t do another surgery, but his offer, his following up with me, and his sincere concern for my well being was absolutely amazing.There is only one last detail I want to mention, but it speaks volumes for Dr. Laverson’s outstanding character and genuine desire to help people feel beautiful and be happy with their looks. Since this was in the emergency room at the hospital, not only was it different than his usual surgeries by its type and difficulty, but the emergency was also paid for by my medical insurance. In the medical profession, this often means a significant pay-cut for the doctor from what they would normally charge. I don’t know if my surgery wound up being one of those times for Dr. Laverson, but I do know that he did a spectacular job given my horrendous condition, all while cancelling his Friday evening plans, and likely earning less than usual as well. I hope this review helps prove to potential customers that Dr. Laverson is a caring and outstandingly skilled surgeon, and to put anyone’s mind at ease that may be nervous or unsure about plastic surgery. And lastly, Dr. Laverson, I want to personally thank you for everything outlined above. I know there is no way I can ever really reciprocate what you did for me, but I hope this review can at least help show people and spread the word that you are an absolutely amazing person and professional."- D.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2019
"Dr. Laverson is incredibly thorough and passionate about his work. He answered all of my questions prior to my breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Following my procedure, Dr. Laverson went above and beyond during my follow up appointment to ensure I get the best results. Office staff is very welcoming, and they even called to check up on me after my procedure. I feel like a new woman, and I’m more confident than I have ever been. I recommend Feel Beautiful to anyone considering having an aesthetic procedure."- J.C. / Google / Mar 17, 2019

Excellent candidates for cellulite reduction with ThermiSmooth are women or men seeking a nonsurgical option to minimize the appearance of dimpled skin throughout the thighs. ThermiSmooth Body may be utilized to help rid cellulite in many areas, including the stomach, arms, ankles, breasts, back, calves, chest, flanks, buttocks, hips, knees, and thighs.
Usually performed as an outpatient, in-office service, nonsurgical cellulite reduction typically takes no more than an hour. Your technician will address the treatment area by gently shifting the handheld apparatus over the regions of concern, such as the thighs, arms, flanks, or buttocks. Our patients often compare their ThermiSmooth treatment to that of a warm body or facial massage. For optimal results, it's suggested that you receive 3 – 6 sessions spaced approximately two weeks apart.
What to Expect
Upon the completion of your treatment, you'll be able to return to your usual daily routine; however, you should limit your exposure to sunlight for a few weeks. Because there will be no scarring or incisions as a result of your session, patients typically see results within 2 – 8 weeks, depending on the areas of the body that were treated. With nonsurgical cellulite reduction, your results could last for up to two years. Attending follow-up sessions is recommended to help maintain your smooth results.
Cellulite reduction FAQs
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is the appearance of dimpled tissue that appears on areas like the thighs, hips, and bottom. The cause of cellulite is not always clear, but we do know genetics, age, and skin laxity play important roles. While cellulite can be found on all body types, it can be considered undesirable or unattractive.
How long are cellulite treatments?
Most cellulite treatments take only 30 – 60 minutes, and there is no recovery time required. Patients don't need to worry about pain or discomfort during their sessions. Follow any guidelines as given by our clinic and attend all follow-up appointments for optimal results.
How much does cellulite treatment cost?
The overall cost depends on the size of the target area and the number of locations being treated. The staff at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic can review the estimated costs during your initial consultation, as well as the payment forms we accept.
