Cellulite can affect anyone. Even people who are fit and healthy can have those dimples on the thighs and butt that just won’t go away. The appearance of cellulite can also affect your self-esteem and your clothing choices.
Cellfina® is an FDA-cleared, minimally invasive procedure that is clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years. Cellfina® targets the structural cause of cellulite, resulting in smoother skin that gives patients the confidence to wear bathing suits and shorter hemlines.
The best candidates for treatment with Cellfina® are healthy non-smokers who are concerned about the appearance of cellulite. This procedure can be performed on the upper thighs and the buttocks.
- Cellfina® Treatment
- Recovery and Results
Underneath the skin, there are small bands of connective tissue that are woven throughout the fat in the thigh and buttocks areas. When these bands pull on the skin, they cause the skin to pucker, creating cellulite. Cellfina® severs the connective bands, and the skin is able to bounce back and smooth itself out. The procedure is performed using local anesthetic.
Though the length of your procedure depends on the number of areas being treated, procedures tend to take approximately 45 minutes to complete and can significantly improve the appearance of cellulite in the thigh and buttocks areas.
*Results and patient experience may vary.
Recovery and Results
There is minimal downtime associated with Cellfina®. You can return to your regular activities in about 24 hours. Patients may experience initial soreness, bruising, and tenderness. These side effects may dissipate within a few days but can take up to a few weeks to resolve completely.
You can see results in as little as three days. The appearance of cellulite will be reduced, and the skin on the buttocks and upper thighs will be smoother. The results of treatment with Cellfina® can last for at least three years.
Does Cellfina® leave scars?
Cellfina® is a minimally invasive procedure. While there is a slight chance of scarring due to the insertion of the device, it is very rare. If you are concerned about scarring or have a history of poor scar development, be sure to communicate this to Dr. Hotchandani during your consultation.
Can I undergo Cellfina® treatment if I have loose skin?
No. Cellfina® is only designed to smooth cellulite on patients who do not have significant skin laxity.
How much does Cellfina® treatment cost?
The cost of your procedure will vary based on several factors, including the areas being treated and the extent of the skin dimpling in the target site. Dr. Hotchandani will develop a personalized treatment plan for you that includes a cost estimate.
