Cellulite Treatment in Santa Barbara, CA

No matter how hard we work to maintain a sculpted and toned physique, we may still deal with cellulite. In Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Ventura, CA, along with the surrounding communities, Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, uses Cellfina® for cellulite reduction on people who want smoother, more contoured legs.

What is Cellulite Reduction?

There are many people in excellent physical shape that still deal with cellulite. Medically speaking, cellulite is the result of fibrous connective tissue caught within subcutaneous fat causing dimpling primarily in the hip and thigh area. It is often referred to as “cottage cheese” legs. The dimpling comes from the bands contracting and pulling down on the skin. It creates that rippled appearance.

Cellfina® is a state of the art system FDA-approved for cellulite reduction on areas of the body including the buttocks, thighs, hips and other areas where cellulite can develop. When applied, Cellfina® targets the cellulite and releases the fibrous bands pulling the skin down to create a lumpy appearance.

Why Choose Cellfina®?

Cellfina® is the latest breakthrough in cellulite reduction. It targets the fibrous tissue that causes the skin to look dimply and diminishes it leaving the areas smooth and toned.

Who is a Good Candidate for Cellfina®?

Anyone with cellulite on the legs, hips or buttocks is a candidate for Cellfina®. Cellfina® may be an effective way to finally achieve smoother, younger-looking skin. Unfortunately, women are more prone to cellulite than men.

How is Cellfina® Performed?

With Cellfina® treatments, Dr. Yegiyants first applies a numbing agent on the targeted areas. From there, she administers a second injection that releases the fibrous bands pulling on the skin. The released skin bounces back to its normal position only smoother and tighter. Only one treatment, which takes about an hour, is typically needed to achieve the desired results. While there is no downtime with Cellfina®, patients often report mild soreness or bruising which resolves itself within a day or two.

When Will I See the Results from Cellfina®?

Most people see some improvement within about three days, which continues for a few months. The full results last for about a year with some patients experiencing the results for up to two years.

How Much Does Cellfina® Cost in Santa Barbara?

We review the costs and payment options with each patient. We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards as well as offer financing through Alphaeon® and CareCredit®.
