The Cellfina™ System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least a year – the longest FDA-clearance for a cellulite treatment. Performed by a qualified physician in an office setting, Cellfina combines a proven approach with an innovative technology to treat the primary cause of cellulite. The result is a smooth and healthy look that gives patients the confidence to wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines.
Cellfina treats the connective bands woven throughout the fat that pull down the skin, creating dimpling seen on the skin’s surface. The Cellfina™ cellulite procedure works by precisely treating these tethered bands, causing them to fully release. Similar to a rubberband under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days
The Cellfina™ cellulite treatment process typically takes about an hour. First, cellulite dimples are marked. Then, a small suction-stabilizer is used to pull skin taut and stretch the cellulite-causing bands into the optimal position for treatment. The provider then delivers a local numbing agent followed by the treatment itself. The treatment uses a specialized hand-piece to target those tight bands, causing them to release.
After the Cellfina™ cellulite treatment, patients can go about their day, but may want to take it easy for up to 24 hours. There have been no serious adverse events associated with Cellfina. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA-approved pivotal study were soreness and bruising. Over 90% of patients had no bruising at four weeks after the cellulite procedure.
