Cellfina for cellulite: The 5-year post-treatment results are in!

Published on Dec 28th, 2017 by Michael Kaminer

Cellfina has become the gold standard for treatment of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. Based on discoveries made at SkinCare Physicians in Boston, and since its FDA approval several years ago, Cellfina has quickly become the standard by which all cellulite therapies are measured. 99% of patients will achieve noticeable improvement in dimples and smoothness, and our dermatologists now have proof that those results are long lasting. At SkinCare Physicians, our dermatologists recently completed the latest aspect of our research into the efficacy of Cellfina. We saw patients at their 5-year follow up visit, and all of the patients that we evaluated … Continue reading »

Say bye to underarm puff and other small bulges

Published on Nov 2nd, 2017 by Karen Kim

Underarm puff and other small bulges on the body can now be treated in a safe, noninvasive way. Dieting and exercising are tried and true ways of eliminating unwanted weight. However sometimes, there are areas of the body including the chin and underarm that no amount of dieting and exercising can touch. The good news is that it is now possible to reduce these fat pockets without undergoing the risks of an invasive procedure. Previously, fat under the chin, underarm bulges, inner thighs, and back fat could only be effectively treated with liposuction or surgery. CoolSculpting technology has changed the … Continue reading »

The new, faster and more efficient CoolSculpting applicator

Pain is almost nonexistent with the procedure, and liposuction-equivalent results can be achieved in just a few short treatment sessions. The abdomen, flanks, love … Continue reading »

What’s not to like about CoolSculpting’s double chin treatment, CoolMini

Published on Oct 15th, 2015 by Jeffrey Dover

Until recently the only approach to treat what is medically known as submental fat, or more commonly referred to as a double chin, was surgical with liposuction and or a neck/facelift. Earlier this year, our Boston dermatologists announced one of the most exciting developments in cosmetic surgery: the FDA approval of Kybella for the treatment of full neck and submental fullness. Remarkably, another highly effective, completely non-surgical approach to treating the double chin, the CoolMini device by CoolSculpting, was just approved by the FDA in late September 2015. The CoolMini is the most advanced non-invasive fat reduction treatment dedicated for … Continue reading »

The launch of the highly anticipated cellulite treatment, Cellfina, began last week with an extensive media tour in New York. Cellfina is the most innovative and newest FDA-cleared device for the treatment of cellulite, and was developed extensively at SkinCare Physicians near Boston.

The editors were all curious and excited to learn about the groundbreaking nature … Continue reading »

Cellulite treatment Cellfina to launch in November 2014 at SkinCare Physicians

Published on Nov 18th, 2014 by Michael Kaminer

Cellfina, the newest FDA-cleared treatment for cellulite, is set to launch at SkinCare Physicians! Developed and pioneered at our dermatology practice  near Boston, Cellfina is the only minimally invasive FDA-approved treatment for the long term improvement of cellulite. Much of the clinical research was performed at SkinCare Physicians. How Cellfina works We now know that cellulite is caused by fibrous cords under the skin that pull down and cause the disturbing dimples. Cellfina’s technology safely takes care of the underlying causes of cellulite by cutting the fibrous cord and relaxing that subdermal tension. Data from the FDA study we did … Continue reading »

CoolSculpting takes care of your unwanted fat with no downtime

Published on Jun 25th, 2014 by Jeffrey Dover

For many of us achieving our ideal body weight or desirable body shape seems like a completely unachievable goal. Until recently there were only 2 ways to trim down our waist, love handles or thighs: Either perpetual dieting and exercise. Or liposuction, a surgical procedure that, while popular and relatively commonly performed, most of us would never even consider. A dramatic development based on a remarkably simple and elegant concept has made things much simpler: Fat is cold sensitive. As such, it can be altered and reduced without affecting the overlying skin. This fact has completely changed our approach to … Continue reading »

Why Exercise Is Still Important After Liposuction

Published on Sep 8th, 2013 by Blog Admin

Year after year, liposuction in Boston and around the country remains very popular— and with good reason. Liposuction physically removes fat cells from the body, streamlining patients’ physiques and providing results that diet and exercise often can’t match. In adults, it’s not the number of fat cells that fluctuates as weight changes; it’s the size of the cells. Unless your fat cells are physically removed from your body, as with liposuction, the number you have now is the number you’ll have a decade from now, even with good diet and exercise habits. Though liposuction does permanently eliminate some fat cells, the fat … Continue reading »

Liposculpture and body shaping – Non-Invasive Options May Be the Next Big Thing

Published on Feb 17th, 2010 by Blog Admin

If you are like most people, no matter how much you diet and exercise, you still have an area or two that just doesn’t seem to shrink the way you want it to. That annoying little jiggle or unsightly roll can detract from the appearance of an otherwise fit and healthy body. Perhaps this is why liposuction is one of the Boston area’s most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. The idea of permanently removing stubborn, unwanted pockets of fat appeals to women and men who want to look more toned and feel better about themselves. Newer, non-invasive technologies may broaden the … Continue reading »
