Dr. Hubbard was recently asked by MERZ North America to perform a Cellfina® procedure as part of a training opportunity for new representatives from MERZ that will be teaching other practices on how to correctly perform a Cellfina procedure. These men and women are responsible for training any doctor that buys the device in the US.
As part of the MERZ Advisory Board for Cellfina®, he has extensive experience in treating patients who are looking to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Over the past 2.5 years, Dr. Hubbard has treated 40-50 patients with the Cellfina procedure.
Cellfina® works by breaking the bands of connective tissue that hold the skin to the muscle. In areas where cellulite is present, these connective bands are too short, which causes dimpling.
To achieve the best results with his patients, Dr. Hubbard prefers to mark the areas of cellulite in a dark room, using a flashlight to highlight the shadowing of the dimples.
To date, only three patients out of the 40-50 treated were dissatisfied with their results. One of those patients opted for a fat augmentation following their Cellfina treatment and was pleased with their results following that procedure.
Overall, Cellfina® has had an incredibly successful outcome from patients of Dr. Hubbard. The procedure takes approximately 1-1.5 hours and is performed in-office at our Dallas, TX location. No sedation is necessary, with only numbing shots required for pain control. Post-procedure pain medication is not needed, although he recommends that his patients treat themselves to a glass of wine and a good book to relax. The patient who participated in the training for MERZ reported that receiving a photofacial had been more painful than the Cellfina® procedure.
If you are interested in learning more about Cellfina® or would like to know if you are a good candidate for the procedure, we encourage you to contact our office and schedule an informative consultation.
