Cellfina: Right candidate for treating cellulite

This month, I am featured in InStyle Magazine talking about the new Cellfina Treatment to get rid of cellulite. We are very excited to be one of a few practices in the local area to offer Cellfina! The Cellfina System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure that has been clincally proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years. This treatment specifically targets stubborn, discrete dimple-like cellulite. The results are superb and quite visible, even as soon as at a three-day follow up. Ideal candidates for the Cellfina System treatment are:
  • Reasonably Fit
  • At a stable weight
  • Have dimple-like cellulite
  • Have good skin tone (too lax of skin won’t yield ideal results)
Cellfina is completed in the office as a single, one-time procedure completely under local anesthetic.  There is minimal downtime and patients are only asked to wear a light compression garment like Spanx or workout pants for several days after the procedure.  To see the procedure in action, check out the YouTube videos below where Dr. Palm demonstrates marking, numbing, and treatment of the cellulite on a real patient!   Continue reading

Cellfina buttocks and thigh cellulite treatment San Diego at Art of Skin

Art of Skin MD is proud to unveil Cellfina, the newest FDA-cleared device for treatment of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.  Unlike other devices on the market, Cellfina offers long lasting results of at least 2 years, and likely longer.   We were proud to unveil this technology as a "2016 what to watch for" for cosmetic surgery innovations debuting this year.  See me, Dr. Melanie Palm, discuss this effective treatment for dimpling cellulite in addition to other innovations such as Kybella (for fat of the double chin) and super silky lip filler Restylane Silk.  You can even see my expert injectable hands at work with a photo of the Restylane Lyft model that I injected and is featured in national ads in print media.  Check out the San Diego XETV CW6 clip below with news anchor Brooke Landau: Continue reading
