Get to the root of your cellulite
And get rid of it with Cellfina™
Reducing the appearance of cellulite—dimples and rippling in the skin along the thighs and buttocks—can be frustratingly difficult. Unaffected by weight loss and regular exercise and unresponsive to creams, lotions, and energy-based treatments, cellulite can, unfortunately, mar the appearance of even the strongest, sexiest legs. So just what is cellulite and why is it so difficult to get rid of?
Cellulite is caused by tough, fibrous bands woven throughout the fatty tissue of the thighs and buttocks; these tight bands pull down on the surface of the skin to create unwanted dimples and puckering. Most so-called cellulite treatments focus on smoothing out the surface of the skin but fail to address the structural causes of the problem, deep within the fatty tissue. But finally, all that has changed! Dr. Paul Fortes is pleased to offer his patients in the Houston, TX area a powerful new treatment that targets cellulite directly at the source for powerful, long-lasting, and highly effective results!
Sound too good to be true? In fact, it’s not! Cellfina™ is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure that has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite for at least two years, in just one simple office visit! Unlike most other treatments, Cellfina™ works because it tackles the problem structurally, directly affecting the connective bands within the fatty tissue of the thighs and buttocks in order to deliver smooth, healthy-looking legs that you will be proud to show off.
The Cellfina™ Difference
Cellfina™ is a minimally invasive treatment ideal for women who are at or near their ideal weight and are frustrated by the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. Cellfina™ offers a number of significant benefits over other types of procedures that claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite, including:
- Attacks cellulite at its source for successful, long-lasting results
- Optimal results require just one treatment
- Treatment usually takes less than an hour
- Results are visible within three days and may last for two years
- Approved by the FDA as both safe and effective
- Safe and comfortable: no general anesthesia required
- Minimal side effects, so patients can return to their normal activities immediately
How Cellfina™ Works
Cellfina™ is able to deliver such amazing, long term results because it works at a structural level, by releasing the connective bands that pull down on the skin and cause the unattractive dimples and wrinkling. Yet the procedure is remarkably simple! First, the cellulite dimples are marked. Then, an innovative, proprietary device stabilizes the target area with gentle suction and a small needle-like device is inserted into the skin. The device delivers a local anesthetic (numbing agent) into the skin, then literally severs the fibrous bands causing the appearance of cellulite. Once released from these connective bands, the skin bounces back into a smooth, healthy shape within three days.
While most patients are surprised that the procedure is more comfortable than they anticipated, some do find the use of over-the-counter pain relief helpful. Patients can return to their normal activities within 24 hours, although they will be asked to wear a compression garment every day for a week. Any side effects are temporary and can include soreness and tenderness, swelling, bruising, and red dots in the treatment area. Because the device uses such a tiny needle, the skin heals completely without any scarring, and the results are smooth, strong, and healthy-looking legs without the appearance of cellulite for up to two years!
