Cellfina Cellulite Reduction Q & A
What is Cellfina® cellulite reduction?
Cellfina cellulite reduction is a procedure that targets areas of bumpy skin called cellulite that often appears on the thighs and buttocks. Women are much more likely to get cellulite than men, and your weight, nutrition, and health have no bearing on whether or not you get it.
Cellfina is a minimally invasive procedure. Before the treatment, Dr. Brownell numbs your skin and marks various cellulite dimples to target. Using the Cellfina device, which includes a microblade, Dr. Brownell cuts bands of fibrous tissue that cause the appearance of dimpling on your skin. Soon after the procedure, the dimples bounce back, and you’re left with smooth skin.
You’ll see the results of your Cellfina procedure very soon after your appointment, and it only takes one session to complete the treatment. You can continue the normal activities of your day immediately after the procedure is over.
What causes cellulite?
To fully understand how Cellfina works, you must have an understanding of what forms cellulite. Beneath your skin, long cords of fibrous connective tissue connect your skin to the muscle below. The cords press on certain areas of fat, and the fat presses back against them.
Above the surface, this structure of connective tissue and fat causes your skin to look bumpy or dimpled. You may have worse-than-average cellulite because of your genetics or if you’re overweight.
Am I a good candidate for Cellfina cellulite reduction?
Before you get Cellfina, you should schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Brownell and her team at Westport Medispa. Since the procedure is minimally invasive, many men and women with mild-to-moderate cellulite are great candidates. You might be a candidate for Cellfina cellulite reduction if you:
- Are at a stable weight
- Are at least 20 years old
- Are under 60 years old
- Don’t have much skin laxity
- Have realistic expectations and goals
Unlike its competitors, Cellfina doesn’t use lasers or heat to treat your cellulite, and you only need one 60-minute session to experience the full effect.
How long does it take to see results?
It takes between three and four days to see the final results of your Cellfina cellulite treatment. Shortly after your procedure, you might notice some swelling or bruising in the areas you target. Fortunately, this goes away quickly, and you can enjoy smoother thighs or buttocks almost immediately.
