Cellfina Provides Improvement in Cellulite That Lasts!
Hello and thank-you for your question!
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 is a new office based cellulite treatment that can treat cellulite permanently in a single office treatment.
Cellfina is the ONLY Effective Cellulite Treatment That Works!
There is only one truly effective and
proven lasting cellulite treatment out there, and that is CELLFINA. All of the
other lotions, potions, creams, treatments, radio frequency devices, including
Cellulaze, are at best, mediocre, and, in many cases, completely worthless.
Cellulaze is a laser-based procedure that has a much higher complication rate,
as well as a much lower patient satisfaction rate, so that answer is pretty
clear. CELLFINA is the only cellulite treatment that has a proven track record
of 96% patient satisfaction at 2 years post treatment. Nothing else is even
remotely as effective as Cellfina. I have attached a link to my website, explaining
how this remarkable system works. There are patient testimonials and schematics
reviewing the details of this remarkable breakthrough treatment. Also, Cellfina
is a single session procedure that is done under local anesthesia with little
to no pain! Thank you for your excellent question.
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.
Newest, Best Option for Cellulite
After literally decades of potions, gimmicks, and other
disappointments, patients finally have something for cellulite to be excited
about.This is very new and is only
being released to 4 plastic surgery practices (at first) for post approval
study, but we finally have something for cellulite that works.Cellfina is an FDA approved
minimally-invasive, in-office, one-time treatment for cellulite of the buttocks
and thighs.The practices that have
Cellfina right now are Jeff Kenkel in Dallas, Haideh Himmand in New York, Julius
Few in Chicago, and us in Shreveport.There are a few dermatology practices with
Cellfina as well.Cellfina has a 94%
satisfaction rate at 1 year, and 96% satisfaction rate at 2 years (data from
the Cellfina pivotal study), which has us very excited.The first few patients we've done have been
coming back in and they look fantastic so far.You can learn more about Cellfina by doing a search for it above, in the
RealSelf search bar.Thanks for your question!
Massage devices don't offer much long term help for cellulite
Most of the machines available to treat cellulite are approved by the FDA under the general heading of "massage-based" devices. That means that as long as the device can massage the skin, the FDA in general is ok with it being marketed as a temporary treatment for cellulite. The problem is these devices don't work very well, and patients often get frustrated at the cost and effort for such modest (10-15%) and short lived improvement. Cellfina is the only device that is FDA approved for the long term improvement in cellulite, and is set to be launched to the public in early 2015. Research performed at our site, SkinCare Physicians near Boston, has proven that 99% of the time it is clear where the cellulite has improved. That is a dramatically higher success rate than massage-based devices on the market, and the kicker is the results last at least 2 years and likely longer based on our research. Keep your eyes out for Cellfina. It is going to change the way we think about and treat cellulite, primarily of the buttocks and upper thighs.
As you have probably learned from your research on cellulite it has always been
very difficult to treat. Certainly creams and lotions are of no use especially
when looking at the cost/benefit ratio and the fact that they are in no way
permanent. Procedures like Velashape and Endermologie are non-invasive
but require multiple treatments and maintenance treatments or everything
returns back to the way it was. Again, for the cost not a very satisfying
option. If you are not ready or convinced about Cellulaze your best bet would
to be to do nothing rather than spend your time and money on procedures that
often end up in frustration. In my practice in the Bay Area I have come to the
conclusion that the happiest patients are those that have realistic expectation
on what Cellulaze can do for them. At some point it might be worthwhile to have
a consultation with someone in your area with an expertise in Cellulaze to get
more detailed information. I honestly think it is the best tool we have for
cellulite today. Good luck. Sincerely, Dean Vistnes
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!

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.
Cellulaze Best for Cellulite Reduction
Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structure of cellulite beneath your skin. It delivers longer-lasting results after only one short treatment. It is the first and only cellulite laser treatment that treats the actual problems underneath the skin to deliver a proven longer-lasting result from just one simple treatment. Cellulaze is backed by many years of clinical research. Studies have shown it increases the thickness of your skin by 25% and the elasticity of your skin by 29%—significant claims that haven't been made by any other treatments. Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin surface to improve the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results at one year post their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment to a friend.
