PARAMUS, N.J., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The dimpled, puckered skin we call cellulite is thought to affect at least
In a recent interview, he shared his experience using Cellfina, a treatment he calls one of the best options for reducing cellulite available.
The first minimally invasive treatment FDA-cleared to treat cellulite for up to 3 years, Cellfina uses a special, proprietary blade to manually release the tight, fibrous bands of tissue that run from the skin to the muscle, which are responsible for cellulite, explains Dr. Parker: "We each have a network of connective tissue bands, called 'fibrous septae,' which weave through subcutaneous fat to anchor our skin to the underlying muscle tissue. For unknown reasons, these bands can shorten in certain areas of body, usually the buttocks and thighs, pulling down on the skin and causing the dimpled appearance of cellulite."
By releasing these bands, Cellfina restores a smoother, more even skin texture in treated areas. Dr. Parker lists many benefits of Cellfina over previous cellulite treatments, including:
Dr. Parker has been treating patients with Cellfina for about one year now and calls the minimally invasive treatment a game-changer in the fight against cellulite. "Cellfina is the most effective, long-lasting cellulite treatment I've used. Other non-surgical options, such as laser and radiofrequency treatments, can achieve some moderate, temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite, mainly due to their skin firming properties; however, since these do not effectively release the fibrous septae, the dimpling returns after a few months at best." He adds that surgical subcision, which essentially uses the same mechanism as Cellfina, is a less desirable option in terms of both patient comfort and results.
