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
Thank you for your question.
For treating #cellulite, my office typically recommends one of three treatment plans: #Cellfina, #VelaShape III, #ThremiSmooth.
#Cellfina is the newest technology and probably most effective. It is a minimally invasive one-time procedure under local anesthetic that removes the fibrous bands under the skin that cause fat to bulge through creating the appearance of cellulite.
#VelaShape and #ThermiSmooth are #non-invasive #bodyshaping products that can help reduce the appearance of your cellulite over the course of multiple sessions.
Book an in-person consultation with a #BoardCertified #PlasticSurgeon to determine which treatment plan is right for you.
Best of luck.
Cellfina appears to be the best cellulite treatment on the market today. Well over 90% of patients are satisfied with their results three years after undergoing treatment.
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 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.

For mild to moderate Cellulite on the thighs and buttocks Cellfina is currently the best treatment option. It is safe and effective with a patient satisfaction rate at two years of 96 percent.
There are several ways to address cellulite depending upon depth of cellulite, location, elasticity of overall skin envelope, and subcutaneous fat layer.

Cellfina is a good option for small focal areas of cellulite. For more diffuse areas of cellulite, I would recommend you learn more about Cellulaze - the FDA approved one
time definitive treatment for cellulite. Cellulaze 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! Dr. Basu
There is only one truly effective and proven lasting cellulite treatment out there, Cellfina. All of the other lotions, potions, creams, treatments, radio frequency devices, including Cellulaze, are at best, mediocre, and mostly completely worthless. 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 recent Cellfina lecture, explaining how this remarkable system works. Thank you for your good question.
If you truly have cellulite, cellulaze may be a good option for you.
Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of
cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours and
can be safely done under local or just IV sedation. It is an FDA
approved treatment for cellulite and requires only one treatment. Hope
this is helpful.

The best cellulite treatment will depend on a number of factors, including the type, extent, and location of your cellulite as well as which technologies your provider is most comfortable with plus your tolerance for downtime and expected results. There are many cellulite treatments available, both surgical and non-surgical, that can be very effective. The most recent addition to the cellulite reduction stage is Cellfina, which was recently FDA approved for results that last two years or more. However, the best way to find out which cellulite treatment is best for you is to visit a board-certified dermatologist who has experience treating cellulite for a consultation, during which your cellulite can be assessed in person and a treatment plan discussed.
