Cellfina is a procedure that targets and effectively removes cellulite. It works by targeting the architecture of the subcutaneous tissue below the surface of the skin, where cellulite develops. Cellfina is typically used on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen where cellulite is most common.
During a Cellfina procedure, tiny needle holes are created to insert the Cellfina device after the skin has been numbed. The Cellfina handpiece is then inserted into the tissue to precisely cut away the fibrous bands. This instantly releases the fat layers that cause cellulite, so the skin appears smoother.

Results can be seen within 3 days of treatment. The skin will look smoother and tighter, and improvements will continue for several months. It is a one-time treatment, unlike many non-invasive skin procedures, and does not need to be repeated unless the patient develops new cellulite spots down the road.
As a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, Cellfina has minimal side effects, the most common being soreness, tenderness and bruising which typically resolves within 2 weeks. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal. This is an in-office procedure and patients can return to work the next day and other normal activities almost immediately. While recovering, patients should wear the compressive garment that we provide, to reduce swelling and speed up healing of any bruising.
