How does Cellfina work?
Cellfina best targets dimple-type cellulite. The procedure has only been cleared by the FDA for treating cellulite in the thighs and buttocks.
Connective tissue called fibrous bands cause cellulite dimples in the skin. These bands connect your skin to tissue underneath. The fibrous bands can pull some skin in, causing the surrounding fat to bulge. This can create small depressions, or cellulite dimples, throughout the area.
Cellfina technology is based on a procedure called subcision. Subcision can also treat scars and wrinkles. The technology uses a device the size of a needle to treat the connective bands just under your skin.
On average, it takes about one hour for every 25 dimples. Results in the treated areas may be seen in as little as three days and can last up to three years. According to a prospective, multicenter U.S. study of 55 patients, one Cellfina treatment improved the appearance of cellulite in 98 percent of people two years after they had the procedure.

What can cause cellulite?
The root cause of cellulite is still undetermined. However, there are many different components that may correlate with it such as:
- Weight Loss
- Genetic Factors
- Hormonal Contraceptives
- An idle lifestyle
While there are many factors that may play a role in the formation of cellulite, the overall appearance cannot go away on it’s own. Many try changing their diet or exercise in hopes of reducing the appearance, yet still see no difference. Thankfully there is a solution, with Cellfina.
How does Cellfina treat my cellulite?
Cellfina is a one-time procedure that is minimally invasive. Cellfina works differently than lotions and scrubs by directly treating the source of the problem found underneath the skin.The device breaks apart the fibrous bands causing the dimple appearance commonly found on the thighs and buttocks.
How can I expect to feel after the procedure?
Cellfina is minimally invasive, so there may be some slight uncomfort felt during the treatment. However there may be some side effects following the procedure. Some recipients report slight bruising, along with soreness from the treated areas.
These symptoms do surpass quickly. Many patients go back to their day to day activities shortly after being treated.
How long will it take to see my results?
Many have expressed seeing results as soon as three days after being treated. Cellfina is the first cellulite treatment that is FDA approved, and many report their results lasting a minimum of 2 years, with the effects improving overtime.
