Cellfina™ is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment. Our New York City office in Midtown Manhattan was amongst the first in the country to receive this highly effective cellulite solution, and Dr. Arash Akhavan has a long track record of success with the technique.
The majority of women will develop cellulite at some point in their lives because of genetics, hormonal influences, and lifestyle choices. In fact, 85% of women between the ages of 24 and 54 have cellulite.
At The Dermatology & Laser Group, in midtown Manhattan, Arash Akhavan, MD, FAAD, board-certified dermatologist, performs Cellfina treatments for cellulite, the treatment that has the highest long term efficacy and safety compared to any other cellulite treatment. Cellfina is a unique system that treats the core cause of cellulite- it eliminates the tethered bands that travel through the fat layer in the thigh and buttocks areas pulling down on skin and creating the dimpling of cellulite. Dr. Akhavan, the director at The Dermatology & Laser Group in New York City, was one of the first physicians to be given the Cellfina system in NYC when it first launched and our practice has the highest level of experience in the Cellfina procedure ensuring the highest level of efficacy and safety.
Dr. Akhavan’s patients have seen results as quickly as one month following the procedure, with impressive results for most expected at 3 months following the procedure. Since there is no recovery time with Cellfina, patients can return to most normal activities immediately. In the pivotal study, 96 percent of Cellfina patients were satisfied after two years— surpassing satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.
The in-office treatment takes less than an hour, depending on the number of dimples being treated and the patient’s individual needs. It is a cellulite solution that doesn’t involve general anesthesia, so afterward patients are able to go about their day. In our midtown New York City office, Dr. Akhavan was one of the first practices to receive and use the Cellfina system. Our patients are usually pleasantly surprised with their great results and easy recovery from the Cellfina procedure.
“Cellfina is unique because it treats the primary structural cause of celllulite, it’s a minimally invasive procedure, and it has the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.
