Bella Derma is proud to offer one of the most advanced and innovative treatments available to reduce signs of cellulite: Cellfina™. A concern shared by roughly 85% of women aged 20 and over, cellulite can be one of the more frustrating skin conditions to develop because even the strictest diet and exercise routines typically have no effect on it. Cellfina™ offers a non-surgical way to address the causes of cellulite and diminish its appearance for beautiful, smoother skin.
What Is Cellfina™?
Cellfina™ is an FDA-approved treatment designed to reduce telltale signs of cellulite, such as “dimples” and depressions in the skin, by targeting the fibrous connective tissues that cause the condition. Fibrous bands deep within the skin of the thighs and buttocks can become tighter over time, essentially pulling the skin down and causing the dimples that are characteristic of cellulite. Cellfina™ can release the tension of the fibrous bands and help give the skin a more even look.
How Can I Benefit from Cellfina™ Treatment?
Cellfina™ is one of the very few treatments for Cellulite™ over the last several years that has shown to provide genuinely successful results for most patients. This procedure offers multiple advantages, including:
- Significant reduction in signs of cellulite in the thighs and buttocks
- Non-surgical treatment – no general anesthesia or incisions are necessary
- Only one treatment session per targeted area is often required to yield the best results
- Long-lasting outcomes – a large majority of patients have experienced the positive effects of Cellfina™ for three years or longer
- Recovery time is usually minimal – many patients are back to normal routines within one or two days
- Optimal results are often noticeable within three days
What Can I Expect During the Cellfina™ Treatment Process?
Once we meet with you for an initial consultation and determine that Cellfina™ is the best option for your goals, we will create a personalized treatment plan and talk with you about the next steps. Cellfina™ can be performed right here at our practice, and often takes under an hour to complete, depending on the size and number of treatment areas.
Cellfina™ involves the insertion of a small, needle-like device into the areas of skin affected by cellulite. Our staff will apply a local anesthetic to the targeted area beforehand in order to make your procedure as comfortable as possible. The Cellfina™ device then works to release the tight fibrous bands that are pulling the skin down and causing its dimpled appearance. Following the procedure, the treated skin should be smoother and more even.
What About Recovery from Cellfina™?
Since Cellfina™ does not involve surgery, the recovery process is often quite minimal. Patients can expect some soreness, bruising, and drainage of the fluid that was used to numb the area, but these side effects should fade in the ensuing days. Depending on the extent of treatment, most patients are able to return to normal daily activities within 24-48 hours after the Cellfina™ procedure.
What Can I Expect From the Results of Cellfina™?
For most patients, the best results of Cellfina™ should be apparent about three days following the treatment. One of the things that makes Cellfina™ so unique among treatments for cellulite is its ability to produce very long-lasting results. Many patients are still seeing the effects three years or more after the procedure!
