Almost everyone you know has cellulite. That might sounds like an outlandish statement but an estimated 80-98% of people have cellulite. It’s hard to get an accurate count because most people don’t visit a doctor about it, it’s just a natural part of life. However, that doesn’t mean you have to like it and it also doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Luckily, we have Cellfina.
What is Cellfina?
Cellfina is an FDA-cleared procedure that is used to improve the appearance of cellulite. It is minimally invasive and only needs one treatment session.
How does Cellfina work?
Cellfina treats the structural cause of cellulite, the connective bands that are woven throughout the fat in the thighs and buttocks area. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the raised lines you see on the surface of the skin. Like a rubber band that is under tension then released, your treated skin will bounce back to smooth itself out.
How soon will I see results?
Results can show up pretty quickly. In fact, you may start seeing improvements after only three days. A pivotal study showed 85% patient satisfaction at three months, 94% at one year, 96% at two years, and 93% at three years making this cellulite treatment much more satisfactory than other leading cellulite treatments and procedures.
Patients in the pivotal study showed noticeable improvement soon after the treatment, with results lasting at least three years making Cellfina the longest FDA-cleared for a cellulite treatment.
Are there any side effects?
There were no serious side effects reported in that pivotal study. The most common side effects recorded were soreness, tenderness, and bruising. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal, under a 3 on a scale of 0 to 10. Most patients (82%) only felt pain when pressure or touch was applied to the area. And that minimal pain improved quickly, after four weeks there was no bruising reported.
