Because a woman’s anatomy is different from a man’s, women are uniquely affected by cellulite. The misconception about cellulite is that it’s caused by being overweight, but the visible skin dimpling and surface irregularities are caused by tight bands of connective tissue that pull the skin down over the body’s natural fat deposits. Cellfina™ uses a small needle-like device to release these tight bands, allowing the skin to relax and smoothen.
Although cellulite can appear anywhere on the body, it commonly occurs on the thighs and bottom. The best candidates for Cellfina™ are women who are uncomfortable with the appearance of cellulite in these specific areas. Cellulite is often hereditary, is unrelated to BMI (body mass index) and affects a vast majority of women. Even slim women can be candidates for Cellfina™ cellulite treatment.

Your Recovery and Results
A Cellfina™ treatment takes approximately 45 minutes, making it an ideal lunchtime procedure. After your session, you may have some soreness and tenderness at the treatment site but should be able to return to work or resume your normal activities. Bruising is the most common side effect and should resolve within 4 weeks.
In as few as 3 days following your Cellfina™ treatment, you should notice improvements. As the dimpling and irregularities in your thighs and bottom diminish and your skin becomes smoother and more even, you can enjoy a boost in confidence. Cellfina™ delivers long-lasting results, so you may never need to schedule another treatment.
