Lumps and bumps caused by cellulite are very common, especially among women, and are also notoriously difficult to get rid of. Fortunately, there is now an effective, minimally-invasive treatment called Cellfina™ that can smooth away that characteristic “orange peel” look and restore a smooth, even skin texture.
Take a look at the answers to these commonly asked Cellfina questions to help prepare for your cellulite reduction consultation.
Which Areas Can Cellfina Treat?
Cellfina is FDA-cleared to reduce cellulite in the buttocks and upper thighs, a few of the most common areas where cellulite occurs. It works by using a small needle-like device to release the tight bands of connective tissue that pull the skin downward, forming a visible indentation.
How Many Cellfina Sessions Will I Need?
Most people only need a single Cellfina treatment in order to achieve optimal results. A typical treatment session takes anywhere between an hour and a half to three hours to complete.
Is There Any Downtime?
You might experience some tenderness, swelling and/or bruising directly after your appointment. However, these effects should subside on their own over the next few days.
Most people return to work the day after their Cellfina appointment.
Your provider may recommend that you wear a compression garment for a short period of time after your Cellfina procedure to aid in the recovery process and improve results.
When Will I See Results?
Expect to see noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture around six weeks after treatment. Cellfina results will last at least three years – the longest FDA clearance for cellulite treatment.
