Cellulite, Not John Dillinger, is Enemy #1
- Posted on: May 30 2016
Remember when the FBI proclaimed so and so to be Public Enemy #1? Gangsters were always vying for the honor.
But for a woman, choosing Public Enemy #1 would be easy — cellulite!
At Saltz Spa Vitoria, we’re with you. But instead of wielding a Tommy Gun, we have a new weapon, Cellfina™, a new cellulite-reducing system that provides excellent results for up to two years!
What is cellulite?
To be official, this is the Merriam-Webster definition of cellulite:
Deposits of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue (as in the thighs, hips, and buttocks) that give a puckered and dimpled appearance to the skin surface.
You have other terms, probably. A little more salty.
Cellulite affects over 90% of women, and it doesn’t discriminate. You can be fit as a fiddle, but still have cellulite. What’s up with that?!!! Plus, it affects less than 10% of men. Even more bogus.
The reason is anatomy. Women have more body fat than men to start with. But it actually comes down to the connective bands that connect the skin and the muscle beneath. Men have thicker bands that form a crisscross pattern. These tend to keep the fat in place and it doesn’t push upwards.
Women have vertical connective bands that trap fat in pockets, little cells, if you will. The bands pull the skin down and the fat pushes the skin up around it. That’s the recipe for — you guessed it — cottage cheese thighs.
Cellfina to the rescue
The Cellfina™ System targets those connective bands. In this non-invasive procedure, we first target the dimpled areas to treat. We apply a topical anesthetic to the area. Then the Cellfina™ System uses a “suction stabilizer” to pull the skin upward, stretching the cellulite-causing connective bands. Next, the Cellfina™ handpiece is used to break the connective bands. This technology is proprietary, but it releases the connection and the skin rebounds upwards. Think of cutting a rubber band. Once released the surface skin smoothes out with noticeably less dimpling.
The whole procedure usually takes less than an hour, and there isn’t really any downtime. Patients have a little bit of tenderness at the treatment sites for a day or so, but who cares, cellulite is lessened!!
And studies are showing high levels of patient satisfaction that just keeps growing with time — 85% satisfaction at three months, 94% at one year, and 96% at two years.
So, what are you waiting for, the next snake oil salve to come on the market claiming to treat cellulite? Puhleeze. Call us at either our Park City or Salt Lake Saltz Spa Vitoria locations and let’s talk about real results with Cellfina!
