Halloween is done and Thanksgiving is fast approaching; then there’s the long duration of the holiday season and ringing in the New Year.
With so many reunions with loved ones and family, it’s no surprise plastic surgeons are busy making their patients look great. One concern which has many patients anxious as the festivities approach is Cellulite.
Although dimples on facial cheeks can be cute, those on the legs and buttocks are less so. Cellulite is a problem which sends many women hiding behind long dresses and loose-fitting clothes. But there’s hope for smoother skin texture in problem areas like the buttocks and thighs. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Dreyfuss, offers Cellfina® to resolve the dimples that diet and exercise cannot.
Cellfina® is an FDA cleared treatment that offers the solution to a problem which has been nearly impossible to treat. It deals with cellulite at its core, namely the tissue below the surface of the skin.
What Causes Cellulite?
Between the muscle and the uppermost layer of skin are fibrous cords of connective tissue. In women, these cords run in a way which is different than in men. Therefore, women often experience more significant problems with the appearance of dimpling on the hips, thighs, and buttocks as well as other areas. Genetics and hormones play a role in this issue as well.
Who is a Candidate?
Patients who benefit from Cellfina® are of all ages and lifestyles. The treatment is easy and convenient; with one procedure, embarrassing cellulite which has been present for years can be diminished or resolved.
It is great for patients who are hesitant to wear shorts, skirts, tights, or any form-fitting clothing that may reveal the uneven consistency of the skin’s surface. Results are long-lasting, providing smooth and dimple-free skin.
A Cellfina® treatment is quick, usually completed under an hour. More important, there’s little to no downtime after the treatment. This convenience makes Cellfina® an excellent treatment for the busy patient who wants immediate results without a prolonged recovery.
Cellfina® results will last years and may be permanent. You should see results within a few days following treatment with best results visible within six months to a year. Patients should understand Cellfina® does not prevent new fat cell formation, so a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is important for maintaining smooth skin. Recently, the FDA cleared Cellfina® results to last up to five years!
A New Approach to Minimizing Cellulite Dimpling
There have been few treatments in the past which have been effective in reducing cellulite. Liposuction is effective at reducing stubborn fat pads, making the skin somewhat smoother, but no treatment has been effective in reducing cellulite at its source until Cellfina®.
The combination of advanced technology and subcision (scar reduction) makes Cellfina® special. It addresses the core of the problem, releasing the tethering or fibrous bands that pull the skin downward, to provide a smooth skin surface which is dimple free.
If you are seeking smoother skin and relief from cellulite, contact board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Dreyfuss, to see if Cellfina® is right for you. He will assess your condition and recommend the necessary procedure to give you the results you are seeking.
