Cellfina is the first FDA approved procedure designed to improve the appearance of cellulite by treating its structural cause. Cellfina works by targeting connective bands that are woven through fat, particularly on the buttocks and thighs, and pull down to create dimpling. By breaking these bands, the skin bounces back and appears smoother.
Cellfina removes cellulite for at least two years. Many patients worry that if they gain or lose weight after a Cellfina procedure that the cellulite will return. Weight gain may cause cellulite in untreated areas of the body, but should not cause the return of cellulite in treated areas, though studies are still needed. Patients should work to maintain their weight through a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise.
Cellfina is not a weight-loss treatment. Ideal candidates are at a stable weight and already adhere to a healthy and active lifestyle. Patient satisfaction following the procedure increases as time goes on with a 96% approval rating after two years.
If you’re ready to remove cellulite and achieve smoother skin, Cellfina may be the best option for you. Schedule a consultation with Long Beach’s Laser Care Center to find out if Cellfina is right for you.
