Cellfina

cellfina-logoIf you have cellulite – dimpling of the skin – on your thighs or buttocks, there is finally a treatment that smooths it. The problem with cellulite is that it doesn’t respond to diet or exercise. It is caused by fibrous bands that attach from the skin surface to the muscles and tissues below. The bands tighten over time and force some fat compartments to bulge as the skin becomes more lax.

We are pleased to announce the launch of Cellfina™ in our office. Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive system clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years – the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment. At two years, 96% of patients were satisfied with their results.

Like Cellulaze, Cellfina treats the underlying cause of cellulite, which are the bands of fibrous septae that are contained in fat, but Cellfina uses subdermal undermining to improve the surface texture. Cellfina uses a non-thermal, non-energy-based method to treat the fibrous septae. A precision-guided platform is used to access and release these bands.

At the Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation, our board-certified facial plastic surgeons approach every procedure individually. We spend time with you to understand what you wish to correct, and we examine you carefully to determine the best plan to achieve your goals.

Your Cellfina Procedure

This treatment is minimally invasive and performed under local anesthesia right in our office. It is a single treatment procedure, so you can achieve virtually all the results you need in one session.

A local anesthetic is administered before your treatment. The Cellfina procedure itself takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Tiny incisions are made to release the bands just under the skin, and you will feel some suction from the Cellfina device.

Skill on the part of your surgeon is required for the best results. The fibrous bands have to be selected and targeted for treatment.

The incisions are small enough that no stitches are required, and you can go home the same day.

Recovering from Cellfina

You will go home with dressings on the incisions, and you will wear a compression garment for two weeks following the procedure. Cellfina provides immediate results.

No recovery time is required after Cellfina, but you may experience some tenderness and bruising for a period of weeks. These effects are usually minor and should not interfere with work or other activities. If necessary, you can take non-prescription medication to ease your discomfort.
