Effective treatment for cellulite in NYC starts with discovering, "How does Cellfina work?"

You don’t have to live with the lumps and bumps of cellulite, which affects 90 percent of women. With so many women affected, cellulite does not discriminate. It appears on women of all ages, full-figured and thin, health-conscious and couch potatoes.

Cellulite is fat that gets squeezed between the bands connecting the muscle to the skin. Women tend to have more fat than men. Much of this body fat is stored on the backside, so cellulite tends to accumulate in there.

Cellfina™ is FDA-cleared to treat cellulite on the buttocks and posterior thighs.

How does Cellfina™ work?

Cellfina™ works by treating the primary cause of cellulite: the connective bands present in fat on the thighs and butt. Not all dermatologists in Midtown have the training and capabilities to offer Cellfina™ to their patients.

Board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Ron Shelton, is an authority in non-invasive and minimally-invasive techniques.

Cellfina™ does not use a scalpel, cutting, or general anesthesia. It is an effective and safe treatment for common dimpled areas, and Cellfina™ represents an alternative to surgical procedures.

During the Cellfina™ procedure you can generally expect the following:

  • Dr. Shelton will mark treatment areas.
  • He will deliver a local medication to numb the marked areas.
  • Dr. Shelton will use a needle-sized device to isolate the treated areas.
  • The device treats the tense, tight bands underneath the skin responsible for dimpling.
  • As the bands are treated, tension is released.
  • Treated skin bounces back.
  • A smoother surface is revealed in as little as 3 days.

Treatment can be completed over your lunch hour. You can generally get back to work or other activities, though you may want to take it easy for a day or two due to initial soreness.

In what has been described by medical device company Ulthera as “the FDA-cleared pivotal study,” no serious side effects were reported. The most common side effects reported by Cellfina™ patients were similar to those reported by patients who have undergone other non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments, including:

  • Tenderness
  • Bruising
  • Minimal pain three days after the procedure
  • Pain when pressing or touching the treated area

Ulthera reports 85 percent of patients were satisfied with results three months after treatment with the Cellfina™ system. Results are lasting. Almost 95 percent of patients were satisfied with the results 12 months after treatment, while 96 percent continued to enjoy their smooth appearance two years later. Cellfina™ boasts the longest FDA clearance of any cellulite procedure.

How does Cellfina work in NYC: Dr. Ron Shelton offers cellulite treatment that gets results where creams, massage, and diet and exercise fail.
