How it works

Cellfina is a minimally-invasive technique cleared by the FDA for improvement in the appearance of cellulite. The Cellfina system addresses the source of the problem – a meshwork of connective bands called “septae” in the architecture of skin. These bands press down on subcutaneous fat causing skin to dimple or pucker. Treatment releases these fibrous strands, allowing surface skin to resume a smoother appearance.

What to expect

A typical treatment session takes 45 minutes to an hour and addresses anywhere from 20 to 30 larger puckers. Dimples are marked, then the area is numbed with local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. A suction device stabilizes skin tension, while the doctor severs strands of fibrous tissue with a needle-sized device.

There is minimal downtime associated with Cellfina, but some patients experience mild bruising, soreness, or swelling in the treatment area or red dots at injection sites. These side effects are minor and resolve quickly. A non-aspirin analgesic can be taken to manage any residual discomfort. A compression garment (Spanx) will need to be worn for at least a week post procedure for optimal results.

You see significant improvement right away. Once the fibrous bands are cut, they do not appear to heal or grow back, so results last at least two years.
