Cellfina: the solution to cellulite!

Did you know that a whopping 85% of women are plagued with some form of cellulite, regardless of their weight and fitness level!   For years there have been a number of machines, creams, and holistic solutions to try and help/remove this annoying skin problem, but nothing ever really seemed to work, or last for that matter…..until now.  WDC has stayed true to form with bringing you the best and most innovative technologies and now is no different.  We are thrilled to be the first practice in Wilmington and one of the few selected practices in all of North Carolina to introduce to you Cellfina.  The only minimally invasive device with FDA approval for removing cellulite for up to a year!  In the studies 96% of patient were still satisfied after 2 years. We could not be more excited about this one.

What makes Cellfina different?  The main difference in Cellfina than other cellulite removal devices is that it actually works….really.  The surgical solution to cellulite, know as subcision, has been around for some time and proven to work.  Cellfina, has taken that technology and removed the surgical risk with a mechanical precision allowing to address the underlying issue with cellulite, making your results last.

The Cellfina device is also less invasive than other cellulite solutions and can be done in a relatively short office visit.  Doesn’t get much better than that now does it!

How exactly does it work? The Cellfina system then precisely treats the connective bands that create the dimpling by encouraging them to fray and then finally fully release, similar to a rubber band under tension.  Once released the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out, with results seen in as little as three days post procedure.  The procedure only takes about an hour to perform, treating about 25 dimples.
