You may have heard about Cellfina™, the latest advancement in the battle against cellulite. Historically, cellulite treatments have done little or nothing to help people get rid of those unsightly dimples that tend to take up residence on the buttocks and back of the thighs. However, to understand how Cellfina is different, you first have to understand a little bit about cellulite.
The Truth About Cellulite
There’s a lot of mystery surrounding cellulite, and plenty of misconceptions. First, you should understand that cellulite is not fat. Fat does have something to do with the formation of cellulite, though. When fibrous bands of tissue press down on fatty deposits, the result is cellulite. Unfortunately, no amount of healthy eating or working out will get rid of the bumps and indentations that characterize cellulite. Even liposuction, which can help you eliminate unwanted fat, is powerless to combat cellulite.
Cellulite has to do with the way fat is distributed under your skin, not the amount of fat you have.
How Cellfina Works
To get out of your bad relationship with cellulite, you can’t rely on procedures meant to treat other things or on creams that won’t get rid of anything except your money. The reason Cellfina actually works is because it addresses the structural causes of cellulite. During a Cellfina treatment session, a small needle-like blade is used to release the bands of tissue that cause skin dimpling. There are no stitches involved, and most people are able to resume their normal activities right away, with limited exercise for up to two weeks. Further, Cellfina has been shown to last for up to 3 years — and in some cases longer.
