Jacksonville patient asks, “What should I consider, besides cost, prior to cellulite treatment with Cellfina?”
Having cellulite can be a frustrating and embarrassing condition. For years, there were no effective treatments, although many over-the-counter products claimed to reduce or improve the appearance of the cottage cheese-like skin.
Caused by fat cells that bulge under the skin when caught between connective tissues, cellulite cannot be eliminated completely by diet, vigorous exercise, spot training, or other activities. Even thin and fit individuals may have areas of stubborn and unattractive cellulite.
Thanks to continuous advances in medical and cosmetic technology, today there are safe, effective, and minimally-invasive treatments for cellulite. When seeking cellulite reduction treatment, patients should consider a few key factors, such as:
What are the qualifications of the physician or provider?
What treatment options are available?
What do other patients have to say?
How is the cost determined?

We are pleased to offer cellulite treatment with the Cellfina System, the only such treatment that has been cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration for long-lasting reduction of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. Using a very small device, similar to a needle, our clinicians are able to address the core cause of cellulite. The device loosens the band-like connective tissues that surround the fat deposits, smoothing out the bumps. The procedure is performed in about an hour in our comfortably-appointed office. Results are visible within a few days and can last up to two years.
Before and after photos of our actual patients may be viewed in our photo gallery along with reviews and comments from patients in our testimonial page.
Because each treatment plan is customized to each patient, the cost of Cellfina treatment varies. For a comprehensive consultation at Southside Dermatology , call our friendly professionals at 904-880-0622 today.
