Although the majority of women experience cellulite at some point in their lives, it can be a source of embarrassment for many. Fortunately, there’s a long-term solution to make swimsuit season a little more comfortable. It’s called Cellfina and its designed to reduce the dimpled appearance of cellulite.
Cellfina is an FDA-approved procedure that can be performed in less than an hour. Unlike other cellulite treatments, Cellfina safely and effectively treats the underlying cause of cellulite -the connective bands woven throughout fat.
During your short in-office treatment, Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips will use a handheld device that uses a needle-sized blade to cut the connective band and break up cellulite. Cellfina is a semi-permanent solution to cellulite and has a high satisfaction rate of 93% even after 3 years. Cellfina cannot prevent future cellulite from forming.The Cellfina treatment requires limited downtime. Typically, you can return to normal activities within 24-48 hours post-procedure. You may experience soreness, tenderness, or slight bruising after your Cellfina procedure. Significant Cellfina results can be seen in as little as 3-days.
Patients going into the procedure with realistic expectations and goals are more likely to be happy with their results. Cellfina can be used in conjunction with other procedures to give you optimal results.
In most cases, only one Cellfina procedure is needed. Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips will do a full assessment of your cellulite during your initial consultation to determine how many Cellfina procedures you’ll need. They will also be available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have regarding the Cellfina procedure.
