Cellulite is a normal pattern of fat storage that is most common in women. There are several influences thought to be contributing factors in the formation of cellulite: hormones, genetics, diet, and lifestyle (for example smoking and occupations where you stand or sit for long periods of time). The result is typically dimpled or lumpy skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and belly. It’s also one of the peskiest problems to get rid of because topical treatments and exercise can only really mask the problem temporarily.
Cellfina is a new minimally invasive treatment option for effectively reducing the appearance of cellulite. It doesn’t just work on the surface of the skin but by actually cutting the connective bands that hold the dimples of fat in place. Advanced Dermatology, P.C. is among the first in the world to offer this innovative procedure in our offices in New York.
The 45-minute treatment works under the skin to target the structural makeup of cellulite. The small needle-sized device separates connective bands that are formed within fat. These strong bands pull on the skin from underneath causing that puckered dimpled look you see on the surface. Once the bands are released, the skin is able to regain its smoothness.
Many patients have reported seeing results just 3 days after the procedure is done! The results have so far been documented to last 2 years after the initial treatment but could last much longer. Documented side effects include: soreness, bruising, and tenderness. There is little downtime, and most patients are able to return to their regular activities soon after treatment.
