How it works
Dr. Pelias uses the Cellfina System to treat the primary structural causes of cellulite-the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.
Dr. Pelias’ patients show significant improvement within three days after the treatment. Two years after treatment, 100 percent of Cellfina patients had noticeable improvement on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). Results from Cellfina last at least two years-the longest FDA-cleared duration for cellulite treatment.
Cellfina patients report high rates of satisfaction with their treatment results. At three months, 85 percent of patients were satisfied, 94 percent at one year and 96 percent at two years, surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments. Side effects
