What is Cellfina?
For women unhappy with the appearance of cellulite on their thighs and buttocks, we are proud to offer the Cellfina System, the longest lasting FDA-cleared cellulite treatment available today. This minimally invasive procedure is clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite on the female buttocks and thighs for at least two years.
What is Cellulite?
It is estimated that 85% of all women have cellulite somewhere on their body- usually on the areas of the body with three layers of fat, such as the knees, stomach, thighs, and buttocks. Areas affected by cellulite appear dimpled or lumpy- but unlike regular body fat, cellulite will not simply go away with diet and exercise. Cellulite is caused by fibrotic, connective bands called septa which are woven throughout the fatty deposits that accumulate on certain areas of the body. These septa bands pull down on the skin from inside of the body, causing the dimpling effect you see on the surface of the skin. The Cellfina System combines its own, state of the art technology with a proven-effective procedure called subcision, which breaks up the septa bands, and smoothing the appearance of the skin on the surface.
What Can I Expect?
The Cellfina procedure requires just one treatment, and usually takes less than an hour to complete. Cellfina does not require general anesthesia, and can be performed right in the office on an outpatient basis. In fact, most patients can return to work within 24 hours of their procedure. Side effects of Cellfina are minimal, and can include some short-lived swelling, minor pain, and minimal bruising to the treated areas. Some patients will begin to see results from their Cellfina treatment in as little as 3 days after their procedure, however most patients notice the greatest results within the first 3 months of treatment.
Cellfina is the first procedure of its kind to combine the proven technology of the subcision technique with its own technology, to truly target cellulite deposits and destroy them at the source. What sets Cellfina apart from other cellulite treatments is not just that it works- but that the results last for a minimum of two years- even if the patient gains or loses weight in that time. In fact, 96% of patients surveyed say they are still satisfied with their Cellfina results two years after the procedure -and many patients report that their results have continued to improve over time.
