Cellfina/Cellulite Treatment/Ultherapy/Thermi RF/Body Contouring/ Hi Definition Procedures
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.

Minimally Invasive But Effective Treatment & The Costs
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. The cost of Cellfina depends upon the size and number of areas being treated. The average patient may pay around $4000 for this one time procedure at our practice. Seek more information to learn if you are candidate for #Cellfina by consulting with a board-certified Plastic Surgeon.

Try Cellulaze and you will be cellulite-free
Cellulite around the knees can be treated with Cellulaze, a treatment that has the ability to smooth out the skin and keep it cellulite-free.
Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Cellulaze is a 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. Best of luck!
Of course, I need to see and evaluate you,the your skin and amount of fat around your knees but I have had good success with the Laser Lipo procedure. Removing the fat and tightening of the skin is very helpful in some patients. Get an evaluation with someone locally to see if you are a candidate. Good luck!
Endermologie and Velashape cellulite treatment
There's no perfect answer available yet for cellulite. However, endermologie techniques and Velashape could help to a certain extent.
We have used the Velashape machine in my office, and we have been pleased with the progress. The key is realistic expectations and good communication.
Unfortunately, there isn't any way to do this
There has yet not been developed any technology worth spending your hard earned dollars on which will make any significant difference in cellulite and extra fat and poor skin around the knees. Maybe someday, but not at present.
