Although cellulite is a very common condition that affects most women, it can be an unsightly cosmetic concern that’s tricky to get rid of. Unfortunately, exercise alone can’t remove cellulite, and even very slender women can experience it. But the good news is that the innovative technology behind Cellfina™ may be the answer to banishing cellulite for good.
What Is Cellfina™?
Cellfina™ is a minimally invasive procedure that typically takes about 45 minutes and requires little to no downtime, so you should be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately afterwards. Cellfina™ works by relaxing the bands of connective tissue that can become tight and, as a result, create a dimpled effect underneath your skin.
Most people enjoy visible results from their Cellfina™ procedure within 3 days, and these can last up to 3 years.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Anyone bothered by the appearance of cellulite can be a good candidate for a Cellfina™ procedure. Most commonly, cellulite occurs on the thighs and buttocks, but it can happen anywhere on your body.
When to Pair Cellfina™ with Other Procedures
Cellfina™ is an excellent treatment option for cellulite, but it does have its limitations. Unlike liposuction, Cellfina™ isn’t able to remove pockets of excess fat, and it won’t tighten your abdominal tissue like a tummy tuck can. If either of these common issues are concerns for you, talk with your plastic surgeon about pairing Cellfina™ with another procedure to maximize your results.
