Thank you for your question.
Cellfina is an FDA approved minimally invasive procedure that reduces the appearance of cellulite for at least two years on the buttocks and back of the thighs of women.
It works by releasing the internal bands that cause the cellulite dimpling and so we have not seen any fat atrophy. I recommend Cellfina in combination with Sculptra or renuva for optimal results. You should not see much of a difference with weight gain or loss but this also has not been studied.
Other areas of the body with dimpling, it is important to make sure it is truly cellulite before treatment.
It is common to have swelling bruising and firmness after the procedure. This can last for a few weeks.
It is different than Cellulaze which is a laser.
If you have had previous poor results with cellulaze, you can still do Cellfina.
Cellfina has shown 100% noticeable improvement and 96% satisfaction in all patients at 2 years.
Cellfina is designed to be a one time procedure.
It can be used on women with all skin types but caution should be taken if theres a history of keloiding.
It can also be combined with other treatments such as Thermi or
Ulthera if skin tightening is needed.
We have done Sculpsure and Coolsculpting if fat reduction is wanted, but its best to wait 3 months to see the results before proceeding.
It can also be done at the same time as other procedures such as liposuction and BBL or as a stand alone procedure in the office.
Since Cellfina outcomes can be based on technique and experience, please see a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes body contouring to see if Cellfina or other treatments are available to meet your goals.

About Treating Cellulite with Cellfina
Cellfina is the newest, most effective FDA approved technology available for treating cellulite. This one-time, minimally invasive procedure takes only 45 minutes to perform, but the results last for a minimum of two years. #Cellfina has the longest lasting results of any current #cellulite treatment. Its approval rate is over 93% here on RealSelf.
Used on #moderate to #severe cellulite of the buttock and thighs, Cellfina works by treating the rubber-band-like connective tissue that causes cellulite. When these “rubber bands” under the skin are cut, the fat trapped underneath in dimples “snaps” back into place, creating a full, smooth appearance.
There is no cutting and no incisions. To perform this controlled, precise, and safe procedure, a vacuum hand piece is placed over the dimpled tissue through which the surgeon will deliver a local anesthetic. Then a small, needle-like #microblade is inserted to release the fibrous bands, the cause of cellulite. Results can be seen in as little as three days post-op. Most patients report some soreness, tenderness, and bruising, which should #resolve within a week. 90% of patients reported no bruising after one month. To ensure the best results, a compressive garment should be worn for 2 weeks post-treatment. Seek more information to learn if you are candidate for #Cellfina by consulting with a board-certified Plastic Surgeon.

Cellulaze cellulite treatment
The treatment that will most likely give you a permanent result in one treatment is Cellulaze. Cellulaze is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a laser probe inserted through tiny incisions under the skin. The laser energy is delivered to the deep surface of the skin to tighten the skin and release the bands that cause dimples. It is probably the most effective cellulite treatment on the market today. Velashape and SmoothShapes are far less predictable, usually require multiple treatments, and require maintenance treatments to maintain the result. Cellulaze results will depend on the physicians understanding and experience with the technology so be sure to see a board certified physician in your area with an expertise in Cellulaze is you pursue this option. Good luck!
I would recommend you evaluate Cellulaze - a FDA approved one time treatment that utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength laser to accomplish 3 things: 1) melt away fat bulging out 2) break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and 3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence. The procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and number of areas being treated). To see your final results takes between 3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure and find a plastic surgeon who performs the procedure near you. Best of luck!
Cellulite still after laser lipo is no surprise
Laser lipolysis does not address cellulite, it addresses the fat by making it easier to remove it. In order to address cellulite a different technique, such as CelluSmooth, must be used.This particular laser uses a three step process where the fibrous bands that cause the skin depressions are severed, the excess fat is melted and the extra skin is shrunk. In my surgery center we have used CelluSmooth for over six months with excellent results. This procedure is particularly attractive to patients since it is performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
If you are looking for a long-lasting treatment for cellulite, consider Cellulaze.
Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours and can be safely done under local or just IV sedation. It is an FDA approved treatment for cellulite and requires only one treatment. Hope this is helpful.

Is Cellulaze worth it? Not many other options
Long-Lasting Solutions to Cellulite
Although Smart Lipo has been widely touted to tighten the skin, many plastic surgeons share my opinion that it is not much different than other forms of traditional liposuction.
Obesity, cellulite, stretch marks, a history back and forth weight loss, or loose, sagging, inelastic skin, are problems which would tend toward poor results during a liposuction. In fact, these problems may be worsened by this procedure and may be best addressed by other surgeries such as a leg or body lift (e.g. tummy tuck) to improve your appearance.
Re: the laser treatment called Cellulaze - it has only recently been approved by the FDA so long term results are not known. This procedure is proven to show better results after one session. The outcome lasts one year or longer, but you may need followup sessions depending on the results.
Laser Lipo & Cellulite
Cellulaze for cellulite
Liposuction and laser lipo are good procedures to address unwanted fat but not cellulite. Cellulaze is a safe and effective way to definitively treat cellulite...and for now, it is really the only definitive treatment. That being said, even Cellulaze will not make cellulite vanish completely, but it will improve it. The information saying that it lasts 4 years is based on the clinical data. As of yet, the data only extends 4 years so that is all the manufacturer can attest to. No one can promise life long results if there is no data to support it. One of the ways Cellulaze works to smooth uneven contours from cellulite is by thickening the skin. Even after Cellulaze, the normal aging process will continue and over time, the skin begins to thin.
