“Hail damage” and “cottage cheese” are just a few of the graphically descriptive terms we use to characterize a formidable nemesis of women everywhere. Cellulite can occur in thin and overweight women alike, and until recently there was no FDA-approved treatment option for cellulite.
The Truth about Cellulite
Genetics are suspected to play a role in a woman’s development of cellulite, which generally appears on the thighs and buttocks. The dimply, rippled appearance of cellulite is caused by tight, connective bands of tissue that pull the surface of the skin down on top of the skin’s natural fatty later. Because these bands are spread out intermittently, inconsistent lumps appear and prevent the skin from being smooth.
How Cellfina™ Works
Cellfina™ is the first procedure to be approved by the FDA for treating cellulite. During a Cellfina™ treatment, a small needle-like device is used to cut the connective bands that are pulling down on the top layer of skin. That skin is released, giving the skin surface a smoother appearance. One treatment takes about 45 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. After treatment, most people are able to immediately return to their normal daily activities and the side effects are mild and include soreness and bruising at the treatment site.
We’ve noticed that most of our clients who are treated with Cellfina™ notice significant improvements after just 3 days and over 90 percent report they’re still satisfied with their results two years later. If you’ve shied away from swimwear, shorts or dresses because you’re embarrassed by cellulite, Cellfina™ may be the skin-smoothing treatment you’ve been waiting for. We recommend scheduling a consultation with our practice to see if Cellfina™ is right for you.
