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. 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.

Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands running from the skin to the underlying deep tissues. Cellfina allows us to release these bands, and in so doing, correct the cellulite dimples. Patient satisfaction rates 3 years after treatment exceed 90%. I am not aware of any peer reviewed literature which supports gradient compression and micro massage treating cellulite.
Can cellulite be reduce by increasing micro blood circulation?
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.
Cellulite is caused by
connective bands woven throughout the fat that pull down the skin,
creating dimpling seen on the skin’s surface. It is genetic in nature.
Some people can loosen the tension on these bands by decreasing the
amount of fat between the skin and the underlying fascial connection.
Others just have cellulite and are skinny.
The Cellfina procedure is a minimally invasive
one that numbs the area around the dimple on your buttocks or thighs, and then
treats the connective bands woven throughout the fat that pull down the skin,
creating dimpling seen on the skin’s surface. The Cellfina cellulite procedure
works by precisely treating these tethered bands, causing them to fully
release. Similar to a rubberband under tension, once released, the treated skin
bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days.
Weight gain or weight loss should not affect the
outcomes and the results have been seen for over 2 years (if not more). It is
truly a really exciting new technology that most women can benefit from.
For the transverse skin
wrinkles that often happen on the front of the thighs, I recommend Pellefirm
treatments. I would also do Pellefirm
treatments on the backs of the thighs and buttocks for improved skin over the
