No one looks forward to the appearance of dimply, cellulite-ridden legs. Try as you might to avoid it, cellulite happens to countless women across a variety of ages. Although it is not a serious medical condition, cellulite is a frequent cause of embarrassment and something that most would like to avoid. Fortunately, a cellulite treatment with Cellfina™ could help.
What Causes Cellulite?
There are a variety of factors that contribute to the formation of cellulite. These include, but are not limited to genetics, age, diet, pregnancy, sedentary lifestyle, smoking and restrictive clothing. For cellulite to form, the fat cells in a given area will expand and press against the skin’s surface. This causes the fibrous bands that create the underlying structure of the skin to constrict, which results in the skin dimpling we know as cellulite.
What Is Cellfina™?
A minimally-invasive tool to reduce and remove the ‘cottage cheese’ look with which so many women are afflicted, Cellfina™ is one of the latest and most effective options on the market. The procedure works by targeting cellulite at its source in order to reverse the conditions that result in unwanted dimpling.
What Should I Expect During The Procedure?
Approved by the FDA, Cellfina™ is performed in our office. Clients are given local anesthetic, before beginning the procedure. The Cellfina™ process uses a small suction to isolate the individual dimple in need of treatment. Small blades then permeate the skin in order to release the constricted fibrous bands beneath the skin’s surface that create the dimpled effect.
In general, patients feel little to no pain, and the entire procedure is complete in around 45 minutes. Afterwards, it is perfectly fine to resume normal activities. However, the treatment area will likely be bruised and tender. Both complaints typically resolve within a few days, after which you can begin to appreciate the effects of the treatment. In most cases, just one treatment will provide dimple-free legs for upwards of two-years!
