Cellfina for Treatment of Cellulite

For patients who want to smooth away their cellulite, Cellfina can be an effective, long-lasting solution. It is a minimally invasive procedure, and patients report high satisfaction even after two years. The Cellfina System targets the structural cause of cellulite by releasing the connective bands that tether the skin and create dimpling. It is FDA cleared for the buttocks and the back of the thighs. Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to see if Cellfina is right for you. Good luck!

Cellulite removal

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

Best Cellulite Procedure

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. The results are fairly #permanent.

#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.

Treating Cellulite With Cellfina

Cellulite is a very common concern many of patients seek treatment to relieve. It is important to understand that Cellfina is used to treat deep-rooted cellulite. Cellfina is the only FDA-approved treatment to improve the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. If the trouble areas are a result of loose skin, Cellfina will not alleviate this problem. Cellfina will treat the structural causes of cellulite and the results are proven two years. I recommend consulting with your board-certified plastic surgeon to determine the option best suited for you.

Thank you for your question.

Cellfina is the longest lasting FDA cleared treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite for 2 years. It has a very high patient satisfaction rate and results can be seen in as little as a few days. It targets the structural cause of cellulite by treating the cellulite causing bands. I would recommend a consultation to determine your candidacy.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
