Cellfina: Five Year Results

Cellulite forms when fat squeezes through connective tissue and is most common in the thigh area of women. It’s not dangerous, it’s not associated with being overweight, and it’s a very common complaint at RefinedMD. Having this dimpled skin can keep people from wearing swimsuits, having body confidence, and even enjoying intimate relationships. It’s been reported that between 90-95 percent of women have some type of cellulite. This is true regardless of age, race, or body type.

Cellulite Results with Cellfina

Cellulite treatments over the years haven’t always been very effective. Short-term and mixed results were common. However, that changed in 2015 when Cellfina was introduced. This FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure has led to drastic results that last up to three years. However, the latest improvement to the technology promises results that last up to five years. This makes it a game changer for many clients.

The latest research promises longer-lasting results. In a recent study, 55 women underwent just one Cellfina treatment. The results showed that every single subject not only enjoyed noticeable improvement after the treatment, but that the improvements lasted five years. In total, 78 percent of the subjects self-reported as “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with the results at five years.

The vice president of North American Medical Affairs at Merz, Kristina Yu-Isenberg, says, “The Cellfina procedure treats the underlying cause of cellulite dimples in the buttocks and thigh area by releasing the tethered fibrous septae bands. It treats the structural cause of cellulite dimples, not the symptom.”

Never before have such effective and long-lasting results been recorded. Treatments in the past yielded very mild results that lasted three months or less. To ensure the safety of subjects, independent and blinded physicians were used as evaluators throughout the five years. They also relied on before pictures to gauge effectiveness. Although the study was intended to showcase the long-lasting results of the treatment, a happy side effect was discovering just how pleased subjects were with the results.
