Summary: Cellulite has a tendency to make even the sanest woman feel self-conscious. The dreaded “cottage cheese” appearance can make it difficult to enjoy certain activities and may keep you from wearing that little black dress you have had your eye on.
Instead of fighting against the appearance of cellulite, why not battle it head on? With Cellfina™ cellulite treatment, you can conquer cellulite long-term. Better yet, you can get back to your routine in minutes and see results in as little as a few days. If you’re considering Cellfina™, asking the right questions at your consultation can ensure you’re fully prepared for your procedure.
1. What Areas Can Be Treated by Cellfina™?
Cellfina™ is a non-invasive treatment that reduces the appearance of cellulite.
Cellfina™ cellulite treatment has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of cellulite specifically on the thighs and buttocks, which are the same areas of the body that are most prone to cellulite. Cellfina™ works by releasing the bands that cause the dimpling effect of cellulite to appear. As the bands are released, skin begins to smooth and, once a band has been released, it stays released.
2. How Long Will My Session Take?
The precise length of your treatment session will depend on the size and number of treatment areas involved. Most treatment sessions will take around 45 minutes, though some may last as long as an hour. As part of your consultation, your plastic surgeon should be able to give you a custom estimate based on your individual treatment needs and goals.
3. Is There Any Discomfort?
Client comfort should be a priority of any cosmetic treatment. In order to ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible, a local anesthetic should be administered to numb the treatment area. Most people who have had Cellfina™ describe any discomfort as mild.
4. What Can I Expect During Recovery?
The most common post-treatment sensations are temporary soreness with some possible bruising at the treatment sites. These should dissipate quickly, allowing the majority of people who receive the treatment to return to normal activities the same day.
5. When Will I See Results?
Most people who have Cellfina™ notice visible improvement in approximately 3 days after just a single treatment. This can make Cellfina™ the ideal cellulite treatment for a quick touchup before swimsuit season or a special event, like a formal event or wedding.
6. How Long Can My Results Last?
The FDA has cleared Cellfina™ for having outcomes that last at least 2 years, which is the longest period of time the FDA will clear a treatment option of this nature.
Since the treatment releases the bands responsible for cellulite, the treatment can remain effective even if you experience a change in weight. This can make Cellfina™ an ideal solution for those who are in the process of losing weight, but would like to treat troublesome cellulite now.
Cellfina™ is designed for the treatment of cellulite only and cannot take the place of certain other body contouring procedures, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck. However, Cellfina™ can be an excellent supplementary service to body contouring, as even liposuction can’t fight cellulite.
If you are looking to completely refresh your look or just want to see dimples disappear from your trouble areas, Cellfina™ cellulite treatment may be the best option for you.
