Cellulite is difficult to treat and is not a "fat" problem, but rather a skin structure problem occurring far below the surface of the skin. With the appropriate treatment, most clients experience a 20 - 50% improvement.
Four treatment options
depending on the treatment option

Bio Stimulating Injections
Bio Stimulating Injections may be suitable for those with any degree of dimpling causes by cellulite.
Harvest Platelet Rich Plasma
Harvest Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) may be suitable if you have loose skin and/or desire a non-invasive option with skin tightening. This treatment, targets this problem area beneath the skin surface.
Injecting your own fat into the cellulite dimples can help fill the dimples and improve the appearance of cellulite. Fat also contains stem cells which help improve the thickness of cellulite affected skin.
We harvest your fat using liposuction.
VaserSmooth is another surgical treatment option that involves the use of a new and specialised probe that melts away the superficial fat that causes Cellulite. This option may be suitable if you have thick skin, noticeable fat deposits and cellulite.
We also treat many interstate and overseas patients each year at Cosmos Clinic. Therefore, we have set procedures in place for those travelling to our clinics for treatment. For travelling patients please send us images of the areas you wish to have treated, which Cosmos Clinic you’d like treatment at, and where you’re located in the description so our staff can include all the appropriate information for travelling patients as part of your personalised quote.

Cellulite is caused by the very superficial layers of fat pressing up against the lower layers of skin.These enlarged fat cells push against the skin and compress the bodies circulatory system – causing the dreaded “orange peel” dimpled appearance. In many cases, cellulite occurs in people who are overweight or have genetically inherited this trait. Other factors include: ageing, hormones and gender differences in skin structure. While being overweight certainly exacerbates the appearance of cellulite, cellulite is ultimately a condition of the skin. Cellulite most commonly occurs in the outer thighs and buttocks however, it can sometimes be found in other regions around the body (such as the upper arm).
The VaserSmooth treatment involves the use of a new and specialised probe that melts away the superficial fat that causes Cellulite. This specialised Vaser promotes strength and structure within the skin, helping to prevent other fat cells from pushing through and causing that “dimpling effect”.
Cellulite is not a “fat” problem, but rather a skin structure problem occurring far below the surface of the skin. The Harvest PRP treatment, targets this problem area beneath the skin surface. It delivers highly concentrated platelets to the affected area, which stimulate collagen, thicken skin and increase elasticity. The result is a long lasting reduction in Cellulite. Most clients experience only minimal discomfort when the PRP injection is given. There is a slight sting when fluid is injected (similar to a flu shot). Patients’ experiences may vary. For more information on how Harvest PRP works, read our Harvest PRP Treatment page.
The Harvest PRP Treatment is a high tech procedure that can offer long-term reductions to stubborn body areas of cellulite. Harvest PRP works by targeting the structures that actually cause cellulite. Over the counter cellulite creams, pills and caffeine lotions only target the surface of the skin and don’t penetrate far enough to cause important structural changes to the skin’s layers. Additionally, endermologie, lymphatic drainage massages or dry-brushing might help, however the improvements won’t be great enough to significantly change the appearance of Cellulite.
