Cellulite is still a medical conundrum and why it plagues mostly women. Over 85% of adult women struggle with the appearance of cellulite on their buttocks, stomach or thighs. This dimply, bumpy skin texture is a frustrating factor for even fit, thin women. The occurrence of cellulite is often considered a genetic issue for women and no amount of diet or exercise can change its appearance. The big question is how can women get rid of it? FDA approved in 2014, Cellfina is a new cosmetic procedure that is helping change the appearance of dimpled skin, and NOVO Med Spa in Frisco, TX offers this cellulite smoothing treatment.
The trained and dedicated professionals at NOVO Med Spa in Frisco, TX offer this innovative new way to fight the signs of cellulite. NOVO Med Spa is excited to be one of the few locations in the greater Dallas area who offer this amazing, minimally invasive procedure. Their mission at NOVO Med Spa is to give patients excellent care with the latest cosmetic skin care options. Here is some helpful information on this new way to treat cellulite and how NOVO Med Spa can help you.
How does Cellfina work?
Cellulite is lumpy skin that looks “dimpled” and normally appears on the hips, butt, and thigh area. While more common for women to have an issue with cellulite, it can also be an issue for some men. The medical cause for cellulite is still a mystery but some medical professionals feel it can be caused by genetics, the natural process of aging when the skin breaks down, or individuals who struggle with thin skin texture. The driving factor behind cellulite is due to the connective bands that are woven throughout the fat in those common areas. When those connective bands pull down the skin, it creates a pocket or “puckering” effect at the skin’s surface. Cellfina treatments target the structural issue of those tight, fibrous bands that cause cellulite by releasing them so smooth skin is the result.
The target audience for Cellfina
Cellulite is mainly an issue for women, but some men can suffer from it as well. Cellulite issues can be seen in females as early as their 20s and for most women gets progressively worse with age. Cellfina can provide great results for both women and men in the Frisco and greater Dallas area with help from the professionally trained staff at NOVO Med Spa. The ideal candidate is healthy, at their ideal body weight (within 10 lbs.), and has good skin tone. The common areas to treat are the legs, stomach, and buttocks. Individuals who have diabetes, varicose veins, loose skin, or are taking blood thinners are not ideal candidates. Women who are pregnant are also not able to have Cellfina treatments.
This minimally invasive procedure that usually takes less than an hour to perform, targets the primary cause of cellulite to give patients lasting results. Before your procedure, NOVO Med Spa’s board-certified medical physician Dr. Jerry Lewis will mark each of the target areas that are to be treated with Cellfina. A local anesthetic will be injected to allow patients to be comfortable during their treatment. While utilizing suction to stabilize the area and keep it tight, Dr. Lewis will insert a microblade beneath the skin using the Cellfina device. Dr. Lewis will then disconnect those fibrous, connective bands causing the appearance of cellulite leaving patients with a smoother surface.
Positive feedback on Cellfina
Cellfina treatments target the structural component of the skin and fat associated with cellulite. This safe, minimally invasive procedure tackles the root problem of cellulite which are the connective bands under the skin that connect fatty tissue. Cellfina provides a real improvement to the skin’s surface and ideal patients see significant results.
Minimally invasive with minimal side effects
Cellfina not only gives the ideal patient dramatic results but it is a simple, straightforward procedure. With a local anesthetic injected into the target area, there is only minor discomfort during the procedure. After the treatment, over-the-counter pain medication can relieve any discomfort and the procedure causes only slight bruising and soreness. It is advised to wear a compression garment for the first week. Cellfina leaves no scarring and it appears once the fibrous bands are released, they don’t to grow back.
Cellfina is not the first cosmetic treatment on the market to eliminate the appearance of cellulite but it does appear to be one of the most effective. In the past, most cellulite treatments were massage-based but were not very efficient or long-lasting. Since Cellfina treats the actual structural issue of cellulite beneath the skin, the results seem more efficient and are giving patients in the Frisco and greater Dallas area permanent results.
