Cellfina™ is the first and only non-surgical procedure approved by the FDA for treating cellulite. This breakthrough treatment delivers dramatic results and can improve or eliminate the appearance of cellulite in as little as one appointment. Here’s a deeper look into how long you can expect to enjoy the results of this cellulite-busting treatment.
Before understanding how Cellfina works, it’s important to understand what causes cellulite. Contrary to what many believe, cellulite has nothing to do with being overweight. The dimpled appearance of cellulite is caused by excess fat trapped between tightened, fibrous bands in the skin.
The root of cellulite has to do with the structure of the skin, not the amount of fat in the skin. Therefore, diet and exercise won’t have any impact on cellulite. Many people think that body contouring procedures like liposuction can eliminate cellulite but lipo can’t reach the deeper layers of tissue where cellulite develops.
How Cellfina Helps
Cellfina precisely targets and releases the underlying tight fibers that pull the skin down to create the dimpled surface appearance. Once these fibrous bands are released, the skin appears dramatically smoother in days following the treatment, with full results developing over the next few months.
Cellfina is performed under local anesthesia and involves the use of a tiny, needle-like device to target the bands of connective tissue. There’s no significant downtime, and most people only require one treatment session to get satisfactory results.
So, How Long Will the Results Last?
Now that you understand how Cellfina delivers such amazing results, you’re probably wondering how long they’ll last. Although Cellfina doesn’t permanently eliminate cellulite, the results typically last at least 1 year and many people report being satisfied as long as 2 to 3 years after treatment.
