Cellulite is a cosmetic skin condition involving the accumulation of fatty deposits under the skin. It presents as areas of dimpled or puckered skin, most often appearing on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. This condition affects nearly 8 out of 10 women over the age of 20, as well as some men. Women more commonly develop cellulite because of the way fat is distributed in the lower half of the female body. Cellulite appears to have a genetic component since individuals who have family members with cellulite are more prone to develop the problem.
Cellulite, may develop for several reasons, including such factors as:
- Loss of skin elasticity due to aging
- Weight gain, as during pregnancy
- Poor diet
- Fad dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormonal changes
- Excessive body fat
- Type and tone an individual’s skin
Cellfina® is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years. Cellfina combines a proven approach with new innovative technology to produce a solution to cellulite that provides precise and long lasting results.
Cellifna directly treats the connective bands that wove together throughout the fat in affected areas. These tight bands pull down the skin which creates the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Once treated, the skin acts similar to a rubber band under tension and bounces back to smooth itself out.
Results may vary but many times, the results can be seen in as little as three days. While top satisfaction may occur 85 at the three month mark.
As the longest FDA clearance for cellulite treatments, results many times last up to three years.
Cellfina® does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin. In just one 45-minute treatment cellulite on the buttocks and thighs can be significantly approved.
Some patients may have soreness, tenderness and possibly bruising. Just three days after treatment, many patients say pain in minimal and quickly improves with time.
There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina®. Some patients experience initial soreness and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time.
