PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 28, 2016) - According to Dr. Mark Pinsky and Dr. David Lickstein, cellulite is one of the most common cosmetic concerns among their female patients. The Palm Beach plastic surgeons highlight that 85% of women between the ages of 25-54 in the United States are affected by cellulite, and the condition is typically most prominent along the thighs and buttocks. To help their patients smooth stubborn cellulite dimpling, Drs. Pinsky and Lickstein recently began offering Cellfina™ as an effective non-surgical treatment option.
"Contrary to popular belief, the appearance of cellulite is not caused by the accumulation of fat, but rather depressions made by fibrous bands that connect the superficial layer of skin with the deeper tissues of the buttocks and thighs," say Dr. Pinsky. Dr. Lickstein notes that while losing or gaining weight does little to improve the look of cellulite, relieving tension in the connective tissue responsible for cellulite can be quite effective. When asked how Cellfina™ works, the doctors explain this innovative treatment disconnects tissue bands located beneath dimpling using a handheld device with a very fine needle at the target site. After treatment, the patients at Pinsky & Lickstein Plastic Surgery typically see rapid improvement and achieve smoother, more toned skin.
Drs. Pinsky and Lickstein say that when patients ask questions about Cellfina™, most want to know how long they can expect results to last. "The FDA has cleared Cellfina™ for results that last two years and is currently preparing to extend that clearance to three years," say the plastic surgeons. They go on to note that some patients have enjoyed smooth skin after Cellfina™ treatment for up to four years or longer. As an added benefit, Cellfina™ is quick and minimally-invasive; Drs. Pinsky and Lickstein can usually complete treatment in 90 minutes and patients typically return to work and their regular activities right away.
