Sciton CelluSmooth vs Cellfina: Which is best for Cellulite Reduction?

Bumpy, dimpled skin known as cellulite is often a source of frustration for many women, because diet and exercise has little effect on it. But there are now several new technologies such as CelluSmooth and Cellfina that can reduce it. If you’re trying to decide between CelluSmooth vs Cellfina,and you’re not sure which is best for cellulite reduction, the information below will help you.

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by tethering bands of fibrous tissue that pull down on the fat layer below the surface of the skin. The pressure causes pockets of fat to bulge between the tissues, giving the skin a dimpled appearance.

CelluSmooth
CelluSmooth is a minimally invasive laser system for treating cellulite on the thighs, buttocks, and almost any other area of the body. It is an in-office procedure that is done under local anesthesia. CelluSmooth utilizes advanced M3 technology, which delivers1319 nm laser wavelength in three distinct modes.There is minimal bruising and discomfort after the procedure.

Cellfina
Cellfina is also a minimally invasive procedure for cellulite. It is a one-time treatment that is performed using local anesthesia. Cellfina uses a small needle-sized device to break the fibrous bands.  Once they are released the skin starts to smooth out.

Which is best for Cellulite Reduction?
Both CelluSmooth and Cellfina attack the underlying cause of cellulite, but CelluSmooth goes further. The 3 different modes in which the wavelength is delivered performs distinctive operations. It severs the bands of fibrous tissue, melts some of the fat below the skin, and also stimulates collagen to create a tightening effect.

CelluSmooth is available in the San Francisco Bay area at the offices of Dr. Robert Aycock.
