Cellulite – also referred to as “cottage cheese,” “hail damage”, or “orange peel,” affects 90% of women and 10% of men. This aesthetically undesirable condition afflicts not only full-figured women, but also slender people, and even young women in their teenage years.
Thanks to advances in medical technology, an FDA approved, minimally-invasive procedure is now available to improve the condition, with clinically proven results. At Nassif Medspa in Los Angeles, we perform Cellfina procedures to smooth away cellulite dimples in a one-time treatment that has beautiful, long-lasting results.
Cellulite is the dimpling often seen on the skin of the buttocks, thighs, and other areas of the body. The primary structural cause of cellulite is the connective bands of fibrous tissue woven throughout the fat in these areas, tethering the layers of the skin to the muscle tissue. These tight bands of connective tissue pull down on the skin, causing puckering and dimples.
Many more women than men suffer with cellulite, mainly because the structure of the collagen that forms connective tissue in women is vertical, with the appearance of a picket fence, while in men it is a cross-linked structure that is stronger and holds fat better. Another contributing factor is that estrogen levels decrease in the years approaching menopause. This decreases circulation, reducing the oxygen and nutrition flowing to the area, leading to a decrease in collagen production.
Results are visible in as little as 3 days after a Cellfina treatment, with noticeable improvement still visible after 3 years. Compared to other cellulite treatments, Cellfina has the highest patient satisfaction rate at one year after the procedure, and an even higher satisfaction rate at 2 years.
