Have you got cellulite? You’re not alone, because it’s estimated that almost 80-90% of all women have some degree of cellulite. When it comes to treating cellulite, there are several minimally invasive treatments out there to choose from, and this has got women asking – Which treatment is best for cellulite reduction.

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite refers to the dimpled areas of the skin, particularly on the thighs and buttocks. Although researchers are not quite sure what causes cellulite, the condition is linked to the fibrous bands of connective tissue that are interwoven throughout the fat layer, and tether the skin to the muscle below. The fibrous bands sometimes tighten and pull the skin down, creating a puckered, dimpled effect.

Which treatment is best for cellulite reduction?
Cellfina is ranked by many dermatologists as the best treatment for reducing mild to moderate cellulite, because it treats the underlying cause.

Cellfina is the only minimally invasive FDA approved cellulite treatment that is clinically proven to reduce cellulite for up to 2 years. It is an effective option for reducing cellulite on the buttocks and thighs (click here to learn more).

How it works
The small needle-sized device is used to cut through the fibrous bands that are holding the fat taut. When the bands are released the skin bounces back into shape and smooths out, thereby reducing the appearance of cellulite dimples.

Cellfina is an in-office procedure that is done under local anesthesia.

There may be some bruising and swelling after Cellfina, so patients are required to wear a compression garment. Downtime is minimal, as most patients only need to take one day off work.

Patients start seeing some improvement about 3 days after treatment.
