Cellulite is nearly ubiquitous, affecting nearly 9 out of 10 women in the U.S. Cellfina offers a highly effective treatment for women that have distinct dimples of cellulite. A single treatment offers dramatic improvement of cellulite dimples days after treatment. Cellfina is long-lasting and cleared for at least 3 years of duration, although the effects are likely permanent.
Cellfina creates mechanical disruption of the connective tissue bundles that tether skin down and creates fat herniation. Using a microblade device under local anesthesia, Cellfina releases these fibrous tissue bands, markedly improving dimples of cellulite. Ideal candidates have good skin elasticity and lack the fine wavy form of cellulite that is better treated by skin tightening.
Cellfina is ideally suited for dimples of cellulite on the back and front of the thighs as well as the buttocks. Dr. Palm serves as a key opinion leader for Merz, the makers of Cellfina. She has lectured nationally on Cellfina at dermatologic and cosmetic surgery meetings and has advised the makers of Cellfina on technological advancements with the device.
