If you’ve tried just about everything to banish your cellulite and you’ve run out of ideas, you can now improve your cellulite with Cellfina. Cellfina is a breakthrough treatment that achieved impressive results in clinical trials. We know that the procedure reduces stubborn cellulite dimples, and smooths the skin, but will Cellfina treatments leave a scar.

Cellfina is a minimally invasive cellulite treatment that can improve the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. Cellfina works by targeting the underlying cause of cellulite, which are the fibrous bands that are interwoven throughout the skin. These bands sometimes become inelastic, and when this happens they pull down on the skin, and create a dimpling effect.

Cellfina is done in-office under local anesthesia. Cellfina precisely cuts the bands, and this causes the skin to relax, and it eventually smooths out. Treatment only takes  minutes and downtime is minimal. Results can be seen just 3 days after treatment and last up to 2 years, which is longer than any other FDA approved cellulite treatment.

Will Cellfina treatments leave a scar
Cellfina treatment for cellulitedoes not require any cutting, it only makes a small puncture in the skin. The Cellfina system consists of a small vacuum handpiece and a needle-sized micro-blade. The handpiece is placed over the dimpled area being targeted for treatment, and the micro-blade is then introduced into the skin, creating very small incision points. These entry points are  hardly visible when healing is complete within 4-6 weeks. However, there is generally some bruising and tenderness at the treatment areas.

Cellfina cellulite treatment is available in Long Beach, CA, at Laser Skin Care Center Dermatology Associates.
