Cellfina for thigh dimples effective
Cellfina Provides Improvement In Cellulite That Lasts
Cellfina is the latest break though for the treatment of cellulite. Cellfina 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.

Cellfina helps 99% of patients
Cellfina is the longest lasting, most effective FDA cleared treatment for cellulite. The original clinical trials, which were performed in my office, demonstrated that 99% of patients improved within 4 to 6 months. In addition, more than 95% of these patients are pleased with their results. Now that Cellfina has been widely available in clinical practice, patients routinely comment about how pleased they are with the quality and extent of improvement of their cellulite. My average patient rates Cellfina results as an 8-9 out of 10. The buttocks and outer thighs do the best, but we are also able to treat the back of the thighs quite effectively. The results really are eye-catching...patients are really happy.
Cellfina is a very effective cellulite treatment that directly addresses the structural problem of cellulite. It involves the use of a small needle to cut the bands that are pulling fat pockets down. By cutting the bands otherwise creating the dimpling appearance of cellulite. The procedure typically takes 45 minutes. The treatment also involves numbing to make the experience as pleasant as possible for patients. It is currently the longest lasting cellulite treatment with results lasting for at least 2 years.
Effectiveness of Cellfina
Thank you for your question.
Cellfina is a minimally invasive procedure that treats the structural cause of cellulite by releasing tight bands of tissue that pull your skin down creating the dimpled appearance. In my opinion it is the only current treatment available that actually makes a significant difference in the appearance of cellulite. While the risk profile is low, I would recommend you discuss with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss the treatment in more detail.

Your cellulite problem is a common one. Fortunately, finally there are effective ways to minimize this problem. Perhaps the least invasive one is Cellfina™. Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. A straightforward solution to cellulite, Cellfina™, combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology, to produce precise, long-lasting results and has a high satisfaction rating on RealSelf. Together with Velashape 3, a non invasive procedure to help "shrink wrap the skin" and further minimize cellulite as a combination treatment is perhaps your best chance for taking care of this tough problem. Cellulaze is also a possible treatment but much more invasive
Cellfina is also for thighs!
Cellulite, Vaser Smooth, Thermi RF, Cellfina, Fat Transfer, Cellulaze, Subcision, Dimpling, Sculpsure, Coolsculpting
It works by releasing the internal bands that cause the cellulite dimpling and so we have not seen any fat atrophy. 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.
