Is cellulite a problem for you? You’re not alone. Although there are a variety of treatments available, they either don’t work or provide only temporary relief. So it’s not surprising that women are often anxious to find out – How can I get rid of cellulite.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is the dimpling that occurs when the fibrous bands of tissue interwoven throughout the fat layer below the skin pull the skin down, causing it to pucker and form dimples.

How can I get rid of cellulite?

There are a range of cellulite creams and lotions on the market, but most of them provide only short-term results. However, Cellfina is a game changer, because it successfully treats the underlying cause of cellulite.

Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment for cellulite dimples on the buttocks and thighs. Cellfina provides long term results that last up to 2 years based on clinical trials.

How Cellfina works

The handheld device has a tiny needle that is used to release the bands of connective tissue that tether the fat to the skin. The treatment area is first numbed using a local anesthetic, and the device is then placed near the cellulite dimple, and the tiny vibrating needle releases the connective tissue. The process is repeated for all the dimples targeted for treatment.

What to expect after Cellfina

There is typically minor swelling and bruising after Cellfina treatment. The swelling can take up to 2 weeks to fully resolve. Patients may be required to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling during healing.
