Cellfina™ is an innovative procedure that can address an extremely common and frustrating skin condition: cellulite. This non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment is designed to effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite by targeting the root causes of the condition, fibrous bands, ultimately helping to give the skin a smoother look with results that can last longer than many other cellulite reduction techniques. With Cellfina™, our board-certified plastic surgeon here at the Personal Enhancement Center can reduce signs of cellulite utilizing a procedure that requires no surgery or extensive downtime!
What Is Cellfina™?
Cellfina™ is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure designed to diminish the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. The treatment utilizes a small device to release tension on the tightened fibrous bands under the skin that are responsible for producing “dimples” and depressions. By relaxing these connective tissues, Cellfina™ can help the skin become more even and smooth.
What Are the Benefits of Cellfina™?
It has been estimated that 85% of women over the age of twenty are affected by cellulite. This condition can affect individuals of virtually all shapes and sizes, and typically does not respond to diet and exercise routines. Fortunately, Cellfina™ offers a state-of-the-art way to effectively reduce signs of cellulite and give the skin a smoother, healthier appearance. The potential benefits of Cellfina™ include:
- No incisions or general anesthesia is required
- A single treatment session in the targeted area is typically all that’s necessary for optimal results
- Outcomes can last for years
- Little to no recovery time is necessary for most patients
- Results are often quickly apparent after treatment
- Cellfina™ is known to have extremely high rates of satisfaction
During your initial consultation, Dr. Christopher Godek and staff will evaluate your skin, talk with you about your options, and help you determine whether Cellfina™ is the best treatment for your needs and goals. If this procedure is right for you, Dr. Godek will develop a customized treatment plan designed to effectively reduce cellulite and give your skin a beautifully smoother appearance.
What Does the Cellfina™ Procedure Involve?
To begin the Cellfina™ procedure, a local anesthetic will be applied in the targeted area of cellulite to minimize discomfort. Then, a small device, similar in size to a needle, will be used to release the fibrous bands under the skin that are causing the depressions. While the total treatment time will depend on the size and number of areas being addressed, the procedure can often be completed in as little as 45 minutes for some patients.
Noticeable results from Cellfina™ are usually apparent within three days or less as the skin bounces back into a more even position.
What Can I Expect During Cellfina™ Recovery?
Most patients can expect some degree of bruising, mild soreness, and possible fluid drainage in the treatment areas after the Cellfina™ procedure; however, these effects should dissipate over the next few days. Extensive downtime is not typically necessary after Cellfina™; in fact, many patients are able to resume non-strenuous daily routines within the first 24 hours, depending on the size and extent of the areas that were treated.
How Long Can the Results from Cellfina™ Last?
One of the major benefits of Cellfina™ is its ability to provide results that last for very long periods of time. Many patients have experienced the benefits of Cellfina™ for a full three years – and even longer – after the initial treatment.
