Clinically-proven treatment for cellulite: Cellfina in Irvine and Ladera Ranch

At three months, 85% of patients were satisfied; at one year, 94% were satisfied, after two years, 96% of patients were satisfied, and after three years, 93% of patients were satisfied. These results surpass 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 visible on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back, creating a visibly smoother look.

How soon will I see the results of Cellfina?

Results may start to appear in as little as three days and last up to three years. A U.S. study of Cellfina results revealed that the appearance of cellulite was improved in 98% of the subjects two years following the treatment.

“I was referred to Dr. Mark Song for Cellfina treatment and had a positive experience.  During my consultation, Dr. Song explained the procedure to me in full detail and took the time to answer my questions. On the day of, his staff made me feel at ease, and the procedure itself was virtually painless. Afterward, I was able to drive myself directly to my son’s little league baseball game and carried on as usual. My bruising lasted exactly two weeks, just as I was told. After just four weeks, I noticed how much smoother my legs looked. Overall, I am happy with my experience. Dr. Song and his staff are top-notch. I would definitely recommend their services.”



Does Cellfina involve cutting?

Cellfina treatments do not require 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. The device creates a small puncture in the skin, which heals to being virtually invisible over four to six weeks.

How long do results last?

Patients in the pivotal study showed significant improvement shortly after the treatment, with results lasting at least five years, longer than any other FDA-cleared 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 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%) felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. This minimal pain improved quickly with time. More than 90% 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. It is common for most patients who are treated on a Thursday or Friday to return to work on the following Monday.
