Everyone hates cellulite. No matter how trim you are or how good of shape you’re in, you probably have some cellulite on your buttocks or thighs. Now there is Cellfina to smooth the appearance of cellulite for at least two years. Cellfina is a onetime, outpatient procedure offered only through qualified physician offices. In the clinical study, patients reported high rates of satisfaction with their treatment results. Two years post-treatment, 96 percent of patients were satisfied, surpassing the satisfaction rates of other cellulite treatments.
The Cellfina system treats the structural cause of cellulite – the connective bands woven throughout the fat in the buttocks and thighs. These tight bands pull down on the skin, creating the puckering or dimpling effect you see on the surface of the skin. Cellfina releases the tension on these bands so the skin can bounce back and smooth itself out. Most patients see results within three days of treatment and results continue to improve over time. In the study, the results lasted at least two years. This is the longest duration for any FDA-cleared cellulite treatment.
Because Cellfina is minimally invasive, there is no general anesthesia. The treatment is performed in our office. Using a local anesthetic, a small needle-sized device is inserted under the skin to release the fibrous bands. The treatment takes about 45 minutes. There may be minimal soreness, tenderness, swelling and bruising for a couple of weeks following treatment. Most patients resume normal activities the next day.
Ideal candidates for Cellfina should be at or near a healthy body weight.
