Three Amazing Reasons to Love Cellfina®Posted On: April 26, 2017
If you know us at all, you know how happy we’ve been to tell our patients about the benefits of Cellfina®. Grand Rapids-area women seeking a nonsurgical solution to cellulite at the Bengtson Center get an earful from our team, which has long emphasized that the skin-smoothing results are fantastic and have been proven to last for two years.
But all that has changed.
Late in 2016, the FDA cleared the makers of Cellfina® to report that the dimple-destroying results are now proven to last for at least three years. The long-lasting results were already the longest on record for such devices, and this recent announcement serves to secure Cellfina® at the head of the pack.
We can’t imagine that you haven’t heard of how it works yet, but just in case, here’s a quick summary: Cellulite is caused by bands in the skin pulling down on the surface. It’s not a fat problem, though fat cells can add to the tension that creates the dimples. The Cellfina® device uses a technique known as subcision to sever these bands without scalpels or surgery. Without that steady downward pull, the skin above is free to sit at a level even with the surrounding skin.
In the most recent trial, 55 patients enjoyed a single treatment each, with all of them continuing to show noticeable improvement three years later and 93 percent of them saying they were satisfied with the results.
This might be the sign of a long-term love affair.
