If you’ve been left disappointed by cellulite treatments in the past, you may want to give Cellfina a try, because it works. Many patients have gained excellent results with Cellfina. One of the biggest questions physicians get asked about the treatment is – How soon can I wear a bathing suit after a Cellfina treatment.
Cellfina is a minimally invasive FDA approved treatment for the long-term improvementof cellulite dimples on the thighs and buttocks.
Cellulite is created by fibrous bands of connective tissue (septae) beneath the surface that pull down the skin. Cellfina is able to create real improvements in the appearance of cellulite, because it tackles these fibrous bands of tissue, which are the underlying cause.
Cellfina uses a system of controlled subcision. The device has a suction applicator that pulls in the skin and fat being targeted. This action stretches the cellulite bands, so that they can be easily broken apart by the Cellfina system.
The Cellfina treatment takes about 1 hour, and the results can be seen about 3 weeks after treatment.
The ideal patients for Cellfina are individuals with minimal skin laxity who are close to their ideal weight.
How soon can I wear a bathing suit after a Cellfina treatment?
There is likely to be significant bruising and some swelling after Cellfina treatment. In addition, patients have to wear a compression garment for at least 2 weeks, so it won’t be possible to wear a bathing suit for several weeks after treatment.
Cellfina treatments are available at Laser Skin Care Center Dermatology Associates, located in Long Beach, CA.
