GREEN, OH--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2016) - Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, located in Green, Ohio and serving residents in and around Akron and Canton, is proud to offer the latest breakthrough in cellulite treatment, Cellfina™. Unlike earlier cellulite solutions, this minimally invasive procedure addresses the underlying structural cause of cellulite, with results lasting for 12 months -- the longest duration for an FDA approved cellulite treatment. With just one, 45-minute treatment session, Cellfina™ can dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.

"I am proud to be the only one in my area and one of the first in Ohio to identify the usefulness of Cellfina™ and offer it at my practice," says Steven Carp, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center. "I immediately recognized how this innovative cosmetic procedure could transform the appearance of women who suffer from dimpling and contour irregularities and impact their ability and confidence to comfortably wear bathing suits, shorts, and dresses."

Cellfina™ is performed as an in-office treatment under a local anesthetic, with a limited recovery period. Although the procedure has been approved by the FDA to provide significant improvements in contour irregularities such as cellulite for up to one year, clinical studies have shown that results last for up to three years for some patients.

"Contrary to what many cellulite sufferers believe, cellulite is the result of factors that are beyond their control," says Dr. Carp. "Lotions, creams, and massage and clinical treatments that claim to eliminate cellulite only address contour irregularities superficially, failing to deliver significant and sustained results."

The natural aging process, heredity, hormonal changes, and significant fluctuations in weight do not cause cellulite directly, but these factors do play a role in the connective bands of tissue just under the skin tightening around fat cells and creating a "cottage cheese" effect on the skin's surface.

"Cellfina™ is not only highly effective, but it's also been proven safe, and with an amazing 94 percent of patients expressing satisfaction with the outcome of their procedure, it's proof that there's finally a treatment that works to alleviate cellulite," says Dr. Carp. "We aren't just removing cellulite; we're improving how our patients feel about what they see in the mirror and boosting their overall self-esteem and general well-being," adds Dr. Carp.
