One of the major issues with cellulite is that it's not just about getting rid of fat cells — you also have to address the breakdown of the connective tissue in the skin that caused the cellulite to happen in the first place, otherwise it will just keep coming back. "Cellactor is the first in a generation of shock wave technology for body tightening and cellulite improvement," says Dr. Sadick. "It blasts the fat cells with shock waves and shakes up the skin cells, so that they create new collagen for improved contour." You'll need a total of five or six treatments over a course of six weeks, with each session costing around $600 a pop. Dr. Sadick says there is no pain with this treatment and absolutely no down time.
