Merz presented five-year follow-up data on its Cellfina cellulite treatment system at the 2018 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) conference in Phoenix. The data revealed that a single treatment improved the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks for five years, building upon a previous study, which showed results lasting at least three years. Of the patients who completed the five-year follow-up, evaluators rated 100 percent as having noticeable improvement after five years.
“With this new five-year data, patients and physicians should feel confident that Cellfina is the right step toward proven, noticeable and lasting results in the improved appearance of cellulite,” said Michael Kaminer, MD, a member of the Cellfina five-year study team. “Creams and other cellulite treatments lead to limited patient satisfaction, while Cellfina patients experience enduring results. The study results confirm what we regularly see in practice.”
