Is There an Effective Cellulite Treatment?

CelluSmooth & Cellulite Treatment
Cellfina is the ONLY Effective Cellulite Treatment That Works!
Cellulaze cellulite treatment
is definitely the most effective treatment for cellulite in the United States.
It is a one time treatment that uses a small laser fiber inserted under the
skin through tiny incisions to tighten the skin and divide the fibrous bands
that cause dimpling. Unlike other available cellulite treatments, Cellulaze
does not require multiple treatments or maintenance treatments.
The results you can get with Cellulaze depend
on your overall all health and degree of cellulite as well as the experience
and understanding of the technology of the physician performing the procedure.
There is definitely a learning curve to Cellulaze so be sure to find an expert
in your area who is board certified and has a long experience with Cellulaze.
Because Cellulaze is a similar technology to SmartLipo, a plastic surgeon with
experience in SmartLipo may have a better understanding of the laser
technology. Look at before and after photos to be sure you have a good
understanding of what Cellulaze is capable of doing for you. Good luck!

CELLULITE TREATMENT? There is not one that works! Pick parents well!
No there is no effective cellulite treatment. I have been and am the chief investigator on a cellulite treatment investigation approved by the FDA in Palo Alto , California. We have so far not proven anything works and I firmly believe there is absolutely no cellulite treatment that works despite flashy advertisement to the contrary. There is a lot of money to be made in the cellulite business and there are plenty of people wanting to harvest the dollars. At best, any and all types of treatments are with extremely minimal and absolutely temporary effect. Is there any treatment that offers a 2% permanent benefit? Possibly? Can you see a 2% effect? Even with the Hubble telescope this would be most difficult. Save your money. Don't waste it on cellulite treatment. Your best bet for improvement is to eat well, be the right weight, be the right body fat and get it measured, spend money on a certified nutritionist, practice good skin care with an A+ local dermatologist, watch sun exposure, and absolutely pick the right set of parents neither of which have any cellulite.

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. I recommend Cellfina in combination with Sculptra or renuva for optimal results. 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.

Effective Cellulite Treatment
- Restore tissue health through the same natural processes that promote better skin tone.
- Involve no incisions or anesthesia.
- Require no downtime, do not need a “recovery period”.
- Causes little or no discomfort.
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.
Cellulaze for cellulite
Cellulaze generally is a one time minimally invasive office based treatment. The laser is placed right beneath the skin so it can directly target your dimples, bulging fat and thin skin. All of the other nonsurgical machines or devices cannot penetrate the skin efficiently to change the underlying anatomy. Those devices create some swelling that some times makes the cellulite look better for a short period of time. The recovery is very acceptable as my patients have told me. You need to wear an elastic garment for a couple of weeks which is hidden beneath your clothes. There is some bruising and swelling that gradually resolves.
VASERSmooth Best for Cellultie
There are many noninvasive treatments for cellulite, but none of them have any permanence to them and work only temporarily. I having been using the VASERSmooth for over a year, and have probably done more cases then anyone in the US. I have found that surgically, I can improve your cellulite anywhere from 50 to 80 percent using the VASERSmooth. The VASERSMooth uses an ultrasound probe with a fragmented edge to cut the cellulitic bands. I also treat the irregular fat cells around the area and do some fat grafting as needed. I have also corrected many people post cellulaze treatment who were unhappy with the results. It typically takes 1.5 to 2 hours to treat both thighs and buttocks. It is done under anesthesia and recovery is quick. Most patients back to work in 3 days and resume exercise 2-3 weeks. A garment is worn for 6 weeks and lymphatic massage and ultrasound started 2 weeks following the operation. Hope this helps.
Thermage effectively treats cellulite
Thermage has a new universal tip that can deeply penetrate the skin and effectively target cellulite. It is non-invasive and painless. Only one single treatment is required to treat buttock, thighs, or arm cellulite.
