What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most noticeable on the buttocks and thighs, and usually starts after puberty. Subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue is what causes cellulite. These fibers are what causes unsightly skin dimpling, especially on women’s hips and thighs. Fibrous bands connect the skin to the fascia that covers the underlying muscle. When the bands contract, they pull down on the skin, creating a pitted appearance. To help our patients reduce their cellulite which affects an estimated 80% of women, MD Aesthetica and Dr.Lyos now offer Cellfina; the longest FDA cleared solution to reduce Cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. MD Aesthetica was the first medical spa to introduce this device to the Houston market. As a result of this, we have one of the best portfolios of results.
Cellfina™ Cellulite Reduction in Houston
The Cellfina system is the size of a smartphone and works mechanically without laser, heat, sound or radio waves to eliminate cellulite. Cellfina is a minimally invasive, limited downtime procedure. It firstly begins with applying local anesthesia to the area affected area. MD Aesthetica prepares the treatment area by numbing and marking the spots or areas to be treated and injected them with lidocaine, an anesthetic numbing agent. Then the Cellfina device isolates the skin with the aid of suction and slides a miniature blade about six millimeters below the skin to cut the attachment, releasing the fibrous bands that cause the dimpling. Due to the lidocaine, we recommend patients to where compression garments after the treatment.
Overall, the procedure takes about an hour. Cellfina can reduce the appearance of cellulite in just one session. The FDA has cleared Cellfina officially for 3 year plus results on average. Within a few days after treatment, patients in the FDA study were showing great results. Furthermore at three months, 85 percent of Cellfina patients are satisfied, and at one year, 94 percent are satisfied. To conclude, we are very happy with this rate of satisfaction.
