Cellulite, meaning the dimpled appearance of skin often presenting on the buttocks and thighs, was first referred to in English Vogue in 1968. Over 50 years later, there are lots of devices and treatments on the market that claim to address the concern, but very few that actually deliver the results they promise. At PHI, we only provide evidence-based treatments that are proven effective, like Cellfina, which we believe to be the best cellulite treatment machine available.
Cellulite treatment review
Our resident consultant plastic surgeon, Dr Apul Parikh, recently spoke to Get The Gloss about Cellfina:
“Cellfina is very new to the UK and there has been very little publicity, but news is reaching women from America and we’re already treating around one patient every week,” says Dr Parikh. “We see this as the future of cellulite treatments – because it works.”
“Using a tiny scalpel that pierces the skin, Cellfina destroys some of the fibrous bands that create those unsightly lumps – but not all of them. The challenge is to cut enough bands to make a visible different but not so many that your layers of subcutaneous tissue lose their structural integrity. It’s a one-off procedure that takes up to an hour and is designed to give permanent results, though follow-up data has only been available for three years post-procedure, as the treatment is so new.”

Winning the title of ‘Best Non-Surgical Body Shaping Device’ by the European Aesthetic Guide, Cellfina is one of the only, if not the only, treatment currently available that yields real and lasting results. With just a single minimally invasive session, this treatment minimises the appearance of cellulite dimples. PHI Clinic was also recently listed as one of the best cellulite treatments by Tatler, who interviewed our very own Mr Apul Parikh.
