Cellfina

Cellfina minimizes the appearance of cellulite on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and other regions. Cellulite is notoriously stubborn, difficult to address, and resistant to both healthy diets and exercise. People of all shapes and sizes have cellulite, and it is not caused by fat itself. Instead, cellulite is caused when fat tissue gets pushed through connective tissue bands underneath the skin. When this occurs, the skin gets a nodular look that is associated with cellulite. Consider these bands similar to a rubber band under tension. When tension is released with Cellfina, the skin is released and becomes smoother.

Cellfina is an FDA-approved cellulite treatment available at Spectrum Plastic Surgery that provides natural-looking and long-lasting results. On average, it takes one hour to treat 25 cellulite dimples. During the appointment, your doctor will mark the treatment spots and apply a numbing agent for comfort. Cellfina is founded on “subcision,” which places a small microblade (the size of a needle) beneath the skin to release band tension. Patients will see substantial results in just three days and can expect results to last up to three years. It is estimated that one Cellfina treatment improves the appearance of cellulite for 98 percent* of patients.

The benefits of Cellfina include:

  • A quick average treatment time of 1 hour (1 hour per 25 cellulite dimples)
  • Seeing results in just 3 days
  • Long-lasting results, up to 3 years
  • Treating the cause of cellulite on a fibrous level
  • The Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale reports that 100% of Cellfina patients saw a “noticeable improvement”
  • 96% of patients being satisfied with results one year after treatment

Cellfina is the most popular treatment for cellulite around the globe today.

Frequently Asked Questions
What causes cellulite?2020-04-28T15:22:01-07:00

Cellulite is caused and exacerbated by many factors, but the main ones include genes, age, skin thickness, and weight. It is important to bear in mind that fat amount is just one potential cause of cellulite. This common condition can also be caused by the accumulation of toxins, hormones, pregnancy, and inactivity. Once cellulite has developed, it will not go away without treatment since the fibrous bands are unable to release on their own.

How is Cellfina different than cellulite creams?2020-04-28T15:20:35-07:00

Topical creams can help reduce the appearance of cellulite by plumping and hydrating the skin. This does not treat cellulite, but rather masks it. Cellfina is the only FDA-approved procedure that treats the cause of cellulite by releasing the tension in the fibrous bands that cause dimpling.

Can I get permanent results from Cellfina?2020-04-28T15:19:56-07:00

A single treatment yields results that last up to three years, but results cannot be permanent because the bands in the fat will likely retighten. However, many Cellfina patients consider cellulite treatment a maintenance procedure and schedule treatments every 2 – 3 years.

Will Cellfina help me look more slender?2020-04-28T15:22:45-07:00

Many people mistakenly associate cellulite solely with excess weight, when in reality even very slender people can present with cellulite. As such, Cellfina might make a person appear more slender but it is not a body contouring treatment. However, patients who want to sculpt or contour their body and treat cellulite often combine surgical or non-surgical treatments with Cellfina. This often includes liposuction or BodyTite.
