Summer is just around the corner – and that means you’re going to be spending more time in shorts, bathing suits, and dresses. But what if cellulite is preventing you from feeling 100% confident about the way you look in your summer clothes?
Whether you have dimples on your buttocks or cellulite on your thighs, there’s a treatment that can help you smooth away cellulite just in time for warmer weather: Cellfina.
What is Cellfina?
Cellfina is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that quickly and effectively breaks up the collagen bands that exacerbate the appearance of cellulite. You see, these collagen bands push fat up underneath the surface of the skin; when pressure grows, the fat becomes more noticeable, leading to the dimpling that’s so common with cellulite. By breaking up these bands, the pressure is released, leading to an immediate improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
This treatment works by using micro-needling to break up those bands. Many clients have compared the feeling of a Cellfina treatment to having sandpaper moved across their skin, so there’s minimal discomfort. Results from Cellfina can last over two years, even with just one procedure.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Cellfina?
Cellfina can be used on areas where cellulite tends to form, like the thighs and buttocks. Not all types of cellulite can be treated with Cellfina; the type of cellulite that responds best features dimpling.
What Should I Expect After My Treatment?
After your Cellfina treatment, you may feel a little sore and tender; that’s perfectly normal! In general, it’s recommended that you stay off of the treatment area for the first 24-48 hours, if possible. For example, if the treatment was performed on your buttocks, you may want to avoid sitting whenever possible during that initial recovery period. Some bruising should be expected, but it will resolve itself within the first couple weeks.
