Cellfina is an FDA-approved procedure designed to correct dimple-type cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. The procedure is done with a short, in-office visit. Because Cellfina is a minimally-invasive procedure, there isn’t much preparation involved. However, there are a few things to take into consideration before your Cellfina treatment.
At your initial consultation, one of our highly-skilled technicians will evaluate if Cellfina is right for you. You may be a good candidate for Cellfina if you are self-conscious about dimples caused by cellulite and are an otherwise healthy adult.
A week or so before your visit, you may be asked to keep alcohol consumption to a minimum to prevent excess bleeding and unwanted bruises. Wearing a compression garment such as spandex or yoga pants to your appointment and for several weeks thereafter is also recommended.
Patients who go into Cellfina with realistic expectations about what the procedure can do typically have a higher satisfaction rate. Results from Cellfina can be seen in as little as 3-days and can last as long as 3-years or more.
Sitting down immediately following your treatment is perfectly fine. In fact, many patients drive themselves home. You’ll be encouraged to take it easy and drink plenty of water 24-hours post-procedure. Side effects such as tenderness and soreness are not uncommon and should subside within several days.
