What is Nonsurgical Cellulite Reduction?
Cellulite is a common and totally normal feature that can develop in both men and women of all ages and sizes, often on the thighs and butt. Fibrous bands run through the layer of fat under the skin. Sometimes, as these bands tighten, they can push the fat up and cause the dimply appearance we know as cellulite. At Brickell Cosmetic Center, however, reducing cellulite has never been easier. Using infrared and radiofrequency energy combined with a pulsed vacuum and massage, dermatologist Dr. Lauren Dozier is able to noninvasively and relatively easily reduce and remove cellulite from her Coconut Grove and Miami Beach, FL and surrounding area patients.
Cellulite Reduction Reviews
"I’ve never been a spa girl but Brickell Cosmetic turned me into one! I first tried Brickell Cosmetic back in 2011 as a Groupon customer. I liked the spa so much that I went back in 2013 when I was dealing with terrible adult acne. At this point I had tried everything- dermatologists, doctors, medicines, every type of product possible. My skin was so bad that some days I wouldn’t leave the house. At first I was dubious that Skincare treatments would help given all the other things I had tried, but I decided to give it a shot. Brickell Cosmetic saved my skin. Julie (the owner) got me on a skincare regimen of Obagi products and recommended a series of treatments to get the acne under control. Once the acne was under control, I started with treatments to help get ride of scars and smooth out the texture of my skin. I can’t even begin to tell you how drastically my skin changed. I was getting so many compliments from friends. I was finally able to step out of the house without makeup and feel confident about my appearance. The best part? It didn’t break the bank.I joined the membership program which is $149 per month and includes six treatments from a list of multiple skincare and body treatments. This is insanely inexpensive given that at most Miami spas you pay around $150 for just one microdermabrasion! For treatments not included in the membership, such as chemical peels and mani/pedis, members receive a 40% discount. There are also discounts on products (Obagi Skincare and Jane Iredale makeup). There is also no catch in this membership. Unlike places like Massage Envy, you won’t get locked into a one year contract. You can cancel your membership at any time with ten days notice before your next payment is due.All of the aestheticians I have worked with have been great. What I like most about the spa is the genuine friendliness- they treat you like family there and care about how you are doing. I also like that they aren’t pushy with selling products like other spas I’ve tried. Here, they will tell you about the products they have to offer and recommend things that they truly think would be helpful (in my case, the Obagi skin care products designed to treat acne) but they won’t harass you about it if you don’t want to buy something.Scheduling is always easy and Julie has always been very accommodating in fitting me in or rescheduling appointments. Once she even offered to stay late so I could work in my acne treatments around my work schedule. Talk about above and beyond! Parking has never been a problem for me. The parking lot is small, but there is plenty of street parking. If you live in Brickell you can catch the Coral Way Trolley here or even walk/bike.There is a wide variety of services here (manicures, massage, cellulite reduction, body wraps, and more) which is great because it is one-stop shopping for all your beauty needs. They are even getting a laser soon for laser hair removal.If you want to try Brickell Cosmetic but aren’t ready to buy a membership, there are many deals on the spas website and there are Groupon specials every month. It’s definitely worth it!"- E.K. / Yelp / Nov 19, 2014

What Can I Expect from My Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
Brickell Cosmetic Center provides nonsurgical cellulite reduction for Miami, FL men and women. Combining radiofrequency (RF), infrared light, massage, and vacuum suction, dermatologist Dr. Dozier is able to target your troublesome areas to create a smooth and even texture. As we pass the handheld device over your treatment areas, RF and infrared light will target fat cells as rollers massage the skin. The RF and infrared light will break up the fat cells while the massage prompts the body's natural response to get rid of the fat cells. Using vacuum suction, the cellulite will be stretched out, dissipating the dimply appearance of the skin. These simple and effective treatments take about 30 — 40 minutes. Multiple sessions may be necessary to provide the best results.
