Cellulite Treatment by Cellfina in Santa Barbara

Evolutions is excited to offer Cellfina –  a cellulite treatment that is clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least 2 years. This is the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment.

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is most commonly seen in the thighs and buttocks. There are connective bands woven throughout the fat and the tight bands pull down the skin, creating a puckering (or dimpling) that can be seen on the surface. Having cellulite does not mean you are overweight. If women in your family have cellulite, there is a good chance you will have it too, regardless of your weight.

How does Cellfina work?
Cellfina treats the primary structural cause of cellulite – the connective bands that are creating the puckering. A Cellfina treatment releases the tension of the connective bands. When the tension is gone, the skin bounces back and smoothes out.

Does Cellfina involve cutting to release the bands?
Cellfina uses a minimally-invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface. A Cellfina treatment does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia.

When will I see improvement?
Results can be seen in as little as 3 days. In a pivotal patient study:

  • 85% of the patients were satisfied 3 months post-treatment
  • 94% were satisfied 1 year post-treatment
  • 96% were satisfied 2 years post-treatment (this surpasses the patient satisfaction rate of other leading cellulite treatments)

How long is a Cellfina procedure?
A Cellfina treatment for the buttocks and thighs will be about 1 hour.

Are there side effects?
In the pivotal study, no serious adverse events were associated with Cellfina. The most common side effects included soreness, tenderness, and bruising. Most of the side effects resolved quickly.

Can I see before and after pictures of a Cellfina treatment?
Cellfina’s website has a gallery of unretouched photos that show before treatment, after 3 months, 1 year, and 2 years. Click here to see before and after Cellfina photos.

How much does Cellfina cost?
A Cellfina treatment is individualized and it is best to book a consultation to get an accurate quote.

Dr. Perkins’ Opinion on Cellfina
Dr. Perkins has reviewed the Cellfina system thoroughly. In his opinion, a Cellfina treatment may permanently improve cellulite.

Learn More about Cellfina at our Smooth Summer Skin Event on Wednesday, May 4th! 

 Call us (805) 695-2160 to book a complimentary consultation for a Cellfina treatment in Santa Barbara. 

Ultherapy Skin Tightening in Santa Barbara

Have you heard the buzz on Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared skin tightening procedure to non-invasively lift the eyebrow, neck, and under-chin areas and, more recently, has been FDA-cleared to improve décolletage lines and wrinkles.

After extensive evaluation, Dr. Perkins (who received an Ultherapy treatment himself!) added Ultherapy and Ultherapy PLUS* to our Santa Barbara Medical Spa’s treatment menu last fall. Clients have been thrilled with the results!

Our clients aren’t the only ones who are happy with Ultherapy. Last month, NewBeauty announced winners of their Beauty Choice Awards and Ultherapy was named “The Best Non-Surgical Skin Tightener” in the “Look Younger Now” category. This is what NewBeauty had to say about Ultherapy:

“If loose skin is a problem and you need a solution, but surgery isn’t an option, this skin-lifting treatment is the way to go.” 

If you are interested in Ultherapy skin tightening, call us (805-695-2160) to book a complimentary consultation!

* Our Ultherapy PLUS package combines an Ultherapy treatment with two Total Tightening treatments.

Skin Tightening Ultherapy in Santa Barbara

We are always looking for the best non-invasive and minimally invasive technologies to offer our clients. For skin tightening treatments, we have been offering Total Tightening (a combination of ReFirme and Titan technology) for a number of years and we continue to get great results with it.

Dr. Perkins recently completed an extensive evaluation of another skin tightening technology that uses focused ultrasound called Ultherapy (he even got a treatment himself!) He is impressed with Ultherapy’s ability to do foundational skin tightening in the layers underneath the skin itself. With only one treatment, clients can see lifting, smoothing, and tightening of the skin on the face, neck, and/or chest.

Even better, Dr. Perkins has created a package called Ultherapy PLUS which combines an Ultherapy treatment with two Total Tightening treatments. Ultherapy PLUS will provide our clients with the most complete and effective non-invasive skin tightening package on the market today.

If you are interested in looking younger without surgery, call us today (805-695-2189) to book your consultation and see if Ultherapy or Ultherapy PLUS is right for you.

miraDry Sweating Treatment in Santa Barbara

miraDry Santa BarbaraIt has been HOT out there this summer but with miraDry, you don’t have to sweat it – ever!

We have been getting AMAZING results from our newest treatment, miraDry. If you are look for a permanent solution to eliminate underarm sweat and odor, look no further than miraDry at Evolutions!

Our Lead Nurse Allison recently had the treatment and here is her testimonial:

I received my miraDry treatment three months ago. Although I was never diagnosed with hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating), I was self conscious of my underarms sweating. It was also costly and inconvenient to launder and/or replace clothing stained by either sweat or antiperspirant. The procedure was very tolerable. The injections of the local anesthetic were no more painful than having my eyebrows waxed. The anesthetic kept me pain-free throughout the entire treatment and for several hours after.  I experienced some tenderness, bruising and swelling that lasted about 2 weeks. I noticed the effects of the treatment immediately and I have not needed to wear antiperspirant since.  I am so glad I did the treatment and I would highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from underarm perspiration…. And that’s everyone!

To book a complimentary miraDry consultation, call us today (805-695-2189)!
