Do you have stubborn cellulite on your hips and thighs? You’re not alone. It’s estimated that at least 90% of all women have cellulite. So it’s not surprising that there is such a high demand for cellulite treatment. But is there a non-surgical treatment for cellulite.
Why do you have cellulite?
The formation of cellulite is linked to the interaction of the fat cells and fibrous bands of tissue below the surface of the skin. The fibrous bands are present throughout the fat layer and tether the fat to the skin. However, the bands sometimes contract and pull down on the skin, causing dimpling.
Cellulite is most commonly found on the thighs and buttocks, but can occur on other parts of the body.
Is There a Non-surgical Treatment for Cellulite?
There are in fact several non-surgical treatments for cellulite. However, the Cellfina system is considered the most effective, because it targets the underlying cause of the condition.
What exactly is Cellfina?
Cellfina is a non-invasive procedure that uses a micro-blade to sever the fibrous bands that hold the fat in place, resulting in smoother thighs and buttocks. Cellfina is done under local anesthesia, and takes about 1 hour to perform. There is no downtime after treatment, so results can be seen immediately.
How does Cellfina work?
After local anesthesia is administered, the Cellfina device is placed on the targeted area and uses gentle suction to pull in the skin and fat. The micro-blade is then moved precisely beneath the skin to gently release the fibrous bands.
The results of Cellfina last for at least 2 years.
