Dr. Beverly Friedlander is one of the first Plastic Surgeons in New Jersey to offer this exciting new treatment which is effective at improving cellulite on the buttock and thighs. “Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least 2 years”. Many women are embarrassed by cellulite. They are uncomfortable wearing a bathing suit or shorts because of it. Now, there is a long term solution. 85% of patients who have undergone the procedure express satisfaction at 3 months, 94% at three years and 96% at 2 years.*
What is Cellulite?
Simply put, cellulite is the dimpling that can be seen on the skin, commonly on the buttock and thigh. While there are several factors related to lifestyle, diet, hormones and genetics, the actual cause are connective bands(septae) that travel between the underlying tissue and the skin.These bands pull the skin down creating a dimple, similar to a rubber band. The greater the density of the septae, the more the cellulite. These septae stiffen with age, so as the skin laxity increases (and pulls on the bands) the cellulite may worsen. Cellfina works by reducing these bands.
How Does Cellfina Work?
Cellfina uses a process called controlled subcision. It precisely targets and releases the bands causing the cellulite, allowing the skin to bounce back. It is minimally invasive, so it is done in the comfort of the office. That means minimal downtime, and no general anesthesia. It is unique in its delivery system. The areas to be treated are clearly marked, they are stabilized using a custom platform and then numbed with a local anesthetic such as lidocaine. A precision handpiece is used to divide the bands just below the skin, releasing them and smoothing the skin.
