Down with Dimples!
Life without cellulite is not such a stretch with Cellfina®. It’s the first long-lasting, minimally invasive solution proven to smooth away dimples for at least three years in a single treatment.
All Cellfina® procedures are performed by Dr. Mark Song, designated by Merz as a Premium Provider of Cellfina®. Additionally, Southcoast Plastic Surgery is an Official Training Center for physicians wishing to improve their Cellfina® programs.
The Cellfina® System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. Performed in our office by our qualified physician, Cellfina® treats the primary structural cause of cellulite for a smooth and healthy look that gives patients the confidence to wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines.
Our patients are happy!
Patients in the clinical study showed significant improvement within three days after the treatment. Three years after treatment, 100 percent of Cellfina® Patients had noticeable improvement. At three months, 85 percent of patients were satisfied, at one year 94 percent were satisfied, after two years, 96 percent of patients were satisfied and after 3 years, 93 percent of patients were satisfied surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.
How does the Cellfina® System work?
The Cellfina® System treats the primary structural cause 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.
How soon will I see improvements?
Results can be seen in as little as three days. In the pivotal study, patient satisfaction was 85 percent at three months, 94 percent at one year, 96 percent at two years and 93 percent at 3 years, surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.
Does Cellfina® involve cutting?
Cellfina® does not involve general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.
How long do results last?
Patients in the pivotal study showed significant improvement shortly after the treatment, with results lasting at least three years—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.
Are there any side effects?
No serious adverse events were associated with Cellfina® in the pivotal study. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA‑cleared pivotal study were soreness, tenderness and bruising. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal (2.7 on a scale of 0 to 10; 0=no pain, 10=extreme pain) and most (82 percent) felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. This minimal pain improved quickly with time. More than 90 percent of patients had no bruising at four weeks.
Will I need to take time off?
There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina®. Some patients experience initial soreness and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time. It is common for most patients who are treated on a Thursday or Friday to return to work on the following Monday.
How much does the Cellfina treatment cost?
The procedure costs are dependent on how much cellulite needs to be treated. Therefore, for an accurate estimate on costs, it is best to call us for a consultation with our physician. All consultations are no fee.
On the day of, his staff made me feel at ease and the procedure itself was virtually painless. Afterwards I was able to drive myself directly to my sons little league baseball game and carried on as usual. My bruising lasted exactly two weeks, just as I was told. Overall I am happy with my experience . Dr. Song and his staff are top notch. Did I mention I am completely happy with the results after only 4 weeks? I would definitely recommend their services.
It seems the older I get, the more cellulite that I have. I was embarrassed about this and didn’t want to wear shorts, let alone a bathing suit. I had searched for treatments to help repair this and that led me to Dr. Song. I am beyond satisfied with the Cellfina treatment and the way the procedure was handled. Dr. Song is very personable and never makes you feel rushed. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a more confident outlook about their bodies.
I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Mark Song and his staff! Not only were they incredibly attentive and thoughtful but genuinely respectful and passionate about their work. I recently had the new Cellfina treatment to remove cellulite and couldn’t be happier. Like so many woman, I’ve been so self-conscience about my back-side for most of my life and felt that there was basically nothing I could do about it. I’m so excited about the results so far (and I’m told I should expect it only to get better!!). The procedure and recovery were relatively easy, some moments of discomfort as a local anesthesia is administered over multiple places and then some soreness for a few days afterwards, but so worth it! Thanks again to Dr. Song and his amazing staff for making it such a great experience.
I recently had the new Cellfina treatment through Dr. Song- First off the procedure was quick, relatively painless and so far the results have been amazing. Secondly Dr. Song and his awesome staff were amazing from consultation to post op. They were incredibly patient, took the time to answer all of my questions, thorough and made me feel very comfortable with not only the procedure but expectations pre and post op. I would highly recommend the Cellfina treatment and proud to offer my review and recommendation to Dr. Song and his staff.
Cellfina…honestly sounded too good to be true. A quick and long lasting treatment to get rid of those not so cute dimples? Yes, please! No major discomfort. To be honest, the most painful part of the whole things was probably having to look at a blown up picture of my “before” bare bottom. Ha! The biggest surprise was that immediately after the procedure, my deepest dimples were gone. From all the information I read before having the procedure done, it just gets better over time. Dr. Song made sure to check on me several times and even gave me his cell phone number in case of any emergency. NO doctors do that anymore! This is a 5-star review because Dr. Song, his staff and the procedures they perform are VERY deserving. I cannot recommend him enough.
