I know there are a bunch of different machines out there to treat cellulite (VelaShape, Synergie, Endermologie etc.). Which ones work the best? I know you can't get rid of cellulite, but do any of these machines make it look better?

Cellfina Provides Improvement in Cellulite That Lasts!
Cellfina is the latest break though for the treatment of cellulite. The treatment targets the fibrous bands which are the source of the dimpling in cellulite. It is most effective for the treatment of deep dimples and depressions of the buttocks and back of the thighs. it is less effective in the treatment of generalized waviness. Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment performed in the office. We are seeing an extremely high level of satisfaction for our patients treated with Cellfina. The investigational studies for Cellfina have just been released and have shown an impressive patient satisfaction rate of 85% at 3 months, 94% at one year and 96% at 2 years. This is a very exciting solution for the many women who suffer from the embarrassment of cellulite.
Thank you, Andrew Lyos MD, FACS
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.

Reducing Cellulite with Z Wave Technology
In our opinion the Z Wave is the best technology on the market for cellulite reduction. It is not perfect and cellulite is a difficult problem to fix, but for those of you with realistic expectations and
will be happy with a nice improvement, the technology is here. Cellulite is caused when the fat
cells become too large for the natural fiber compartments which hold the skin. These compartments then bulge and form uneven layers of fat underneath.The Z Wave uses sound waves to break up fat
cells resulting in a more smooth and even fat layer.Cellulite treatments are typically performed
in a series of 8-10 sessions that are 2-7 days apart at a cost of $100/
area.For example an area is the front of the legs, back of the legs, buttocks or arms.

Cellulaze for long lasting treatment for cellulite
Thanks for your question.
I would recommend Cellulaze for your cellulite.
Cellulaze is the first FDA approved minimally invasive, one-time treatment for cellulite. It utilizes a 1440 nm side-firing laser fiber optic to treat the three main causes of cellulite: It breaks down the fatty bulges, then cuts the fibrous septae that cause dimpling, then finally stimulates the dermis to shrink and thicken in order to improve the look of you cellulite areas.
Good luck in your endeavors!
Robert Kratschmer, MD
Cellulaze is the first long-lasting cellulite reduction treatment. Short-pulsed, high energy laser beams are utilized beneath the skin to transmit energy to smooth out lumpy fat cells and heat dermal tissue. This will promote skin thickening and smooth skin.
