What is the Cellfina™ System?
Cellfina™ is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years. Cellfina™, combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology, to produce precise, long-lasting results.
How does the Cellfina™ System work?
The Cellfina™ System treats the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks, which is the primary structural cause of cellulite. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.
How soon will I see improvements?
Results can be seen after one single session. Most patients see results after only 3 days. In a clinical study, at 3 months, 85% of the patients were satisfied with their cellulite reduction results. After one year and two years had passed, over 94% of the clinical study patients were satisfied with the results.
How long do results last?
Patients in an FDA-approved study showed significant improvement shortly after the treatment, with results lasting at least one to two years—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA‑approved study were soreness, tenderness and bruising. Three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal, and most felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. Pain will likely improve quickly with time. More than 90 percent of patients had no bruising at four weeks.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes about 45 minutes, depending on each individual patient and the areas being treated.
Will I need to take time off of work?
There is minimal downtime associated with Cellfina™. Some patients experience initial tenderness and soreness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time.
How much does the Cellfina™ treatment cost?
Price is upon consultation with an RN.
