Cellfina™ – The Most Compelling Cellulite Treatment Yet!!

Nothing kills confidence like cellulite.  You eat right and you exercise but still have that area of cellulite that will not go away.  You have tried all the remedies, but nothing seems to work.  Well keep reading, I have good news and more good news!

More than 90% of women have cellulite and now there is an FDA–cleared device that treats what we now know to be the underlying causes of cellulitis, which are the bands of fibrous septae that are contained in fat.

What kind of technology does Cellfina™ use?

Cellfina is a local aesthetic procedure, done in a Plastic Surgeons office, by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Women who have deep dimples on the buttocks and thighs are the best candidates. To date, we have been struggling with the treatment of cellulite.  Our patients ask for it, and we typically have thrown up our hands and said, “We don’t really have much.”  Cellfina™ treats the cause of cellulite (the fibrous septae) with long-lasting results.  It really is a significant advancement in the ability to treat cellulite in women who have been asking for years.

Cellfina™ is based on subdermal undermining.  We know that when we undermine tissue, skin in particular, we can improve the surface texture.  Cellfina™ has taken this subdermal undermining technology to the next level by including vacuum acquisition of the skin to make it more precise and controlled.  It is different because it uses a non-thermal, non-energy-based method to treat the fibrous septae.  It uses a precision-guided platform to release the bands.  Thus, it can be safely performed in women of all ethnic backgrounds and all skin colors

Is Cellfina™ safe?

The treatment is extremely safe and effective when performed by Dr. Schoemann, who is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery.  It has safe and reproducible results, and no serious adverse events are reported in the clinical trials and on an average, takes about 40-45 minutes.

What problems does Cellfina™ address?  What kind of results can I expect?

The dimples that are treated disappear.  There’s really no cellulite left.  When Cellfina™ treats a cellulite dimple, that dimple goes away.  The results are long lasting.There have been no serious adverse events associated with Cellfina™. The most common side effects reported by patients in the study for the FDA were soreness and bruising. Many women that have been treated say they feel happier that they can wear certain clothes again, such as white pants or tight-fitting yoga pants.

96% of the patients were satisfied at two years with ONE treatment.

What are the expected costs?

The cost of Cellfina™ is dependent on the number of areas being treated and the number of cellulite dimples a person wishes treated. Most surgeons may offer free consultations to discuss a customized treatment plan for you and their staff will discuss the schedule and costs with you.
