Cellulite affects millions of women, particularly on the thighs, buttocks, or abdomen. Cellulite is often a result of a change in the skin’s texture, usually due to the layer just below the skin and fat in these areas reacting.
Cellfina is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The Cellfina System is a very effective treatment for cellulite because it targets the architecture of the subcutaneous tissue below the surface of the skin, where cellulite develops. During the procedure, a small, needle-sized device treats the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.

Cellfina results can be seen within 3 days of treatment. The skin will look smoother and tighter, and improvements will continue for several months.
Most patients return to work the following day or take one day off work to recover – or the weekend if they have the procedure done on a Friday. Side effects are minimal and include soreness, tenderness, some welling, and minor pain and bruising. If you undergo Cellfina before a trip or event, you should avoid pools and hot tubs for a week or two. Most doctors recommend wearing tight compression shorts (like Spanx, or similar) for a couple of weeks after the procedure. All of these side effects and recovery procedures can be tolerated or done at work.
