Cellfina is the first FDA approved procedure for adults designed to improve the appearance of cellulite by treating its structural cause. This one-time minimally invasive treatment works by targeting the structure of cellulite bands that appear in the thighs, flanks, and buttocks. These connective bands create the dimpling that’s common with cellulite; once these bands are broken, the dimpling effect disappears. The end result is smooth skin that lasts for at least two years and perhaps considerably longer based on long term follow up of the earliest studies.
Cellfina works by using a small needle-sized device to create micro-punctures in the targeted area without the need for general anesthesia. This tiny device breaks up the cellulite bands for almost immediate improvement in dimpling. There’s minimal downtime associated with Cellfina; most patients report soreness and bruising. Side effects improve quickly, with most patients reporting no bruising after four weeks.
Cellfina is not a weight-loss treatment. Ideal candidates are at a stable weight and already adhere to a healthy and active lifestyle. Candidates will have dimpled cellulite that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. These candidates will also have good skintone and elasticity, as results won’t be visible in candidates with loose skin. It is safe and effective for all skin types and colors.
If you’re ready to see smoother, more dramatic results after just a single in-office treatment, Cellfina is the best option for you. Schedule a consultation with Long Beach’s Laser Care Center to find out if Cellfina is right for you. Patient satisfaction following the procedure increases with time and is 96% satisfaction after two years.
