Cellfina vs Cellulaze, what’s better?
Some clients researching cellulite reduction treatments on the Internet have asked us what is better, Cellfina or Cellulaze.
In order to understand the differences in the 2 procedures, it’s important to understand what causes cellulite. The dimpled skin that shows up mainly in the buttocks and thighs is caused by fibrous bands attached to the skin, pulling it down. Fat pushes through gaps between the bands, resulting in cellulite.
Cellulaze mechanically disrupts the bands that are causing dimpled cellulite. But it is less precise and nowhere near as effective as Cellfina as evidenced.
Cellfina releases the bands that cause cellulite with tiny blades in a procedure that is minimally invasive and produces results within a few days. Cellulaze uses an older technology that employs heat to release the bands and results take longer to appear and tend to be less precise and less long-lasting.
Rankings on the popular reference site RealSelf in early 2017 showed Cellfina with a very high “worth it” ranking of 90% while Cellulaze had a “worth it” rating of only 55%.
This is further backed up by physician rankings on RealSelf as well as popular US medical aesthetics researcher Grant Stevens who wrote: “I’ve used Endermologie (LPG), VelaShape (Syneron Medical), SmoothShapes (Biocellulase), Velashape I, II and III, and I own two Cellulazes” Dr. Stevens says. “Cellulaze works, but it costs so much money to run, it’s very hot, it has risks and complications and it doesn’t have longevity. All of my Cellulaze patients came back.’” Dr. Stevens stated that Cellfina treatment and results rival everything he had to offer his patients with cellulite.
