Cellulite can affect both men and women but is most common among women. Approximately 90% of women experience the symptoms of cellulite. No matter if you are thin, curvy, small or tall, cellulite on the buttocks and thighs is a common occurrence.
While many people believe that cellulite is caused by weight gain, the reality is that cellulite isn’t a weight issue or a skin issue. What causes cellulite lies in the fibrous bands beneath the skin that cause tension on the layer of fatty tissue, giving your skin the dimpled, “cottage-cheese” appearance.
If you’re looking for an effective solution to cellulite, then look no further than Cellfina®.
Cellfina is one of the best and longest lasting cellulite reduction treatments currently on the market. Cellfina’s FDA clearance demonstrated 5-year improvement in the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs of adult females.

Best Candidates for Cellfina
Cellfina can be a good option for just about anyone wanting to reduce the appearance of cellulite on their body. The right candidate should have realistic expectations for their treatment, maintain a steady weight and be in good overall health.
Cellfina may benefit you if you experience one or more of the following:
- Dimpled skin on the thighs or buttocks
- Poor self-image due to having cellulite
- Not wearing what you want due to being self-conscious
What to Expect
Before your cellulite treatment, we’ll evaluate your areas of concern and mark the points that create the most dimpling. Local anesthesia will be used in the treated area to keep you comfortable throughout your treatment.
Once your target area is primed and numbed, the cellfina device will be placed over the marked areas to suction the skin. By suctioning the skin, we are able to keep the skin stable which allows for more precise treatment. A fine needle is used directly underneath the skin to cut the individual fibrous tissues, thus releasing the tension causing the cellulite.
Depending on your needs, Cellfina can take as little as 1 hour to perform, and you should be able to resume your normal activities shortly after treatment.
Cellulite Reduction Recovery & Results
Although individual recovery times vary, Cellfina requires little to no downtime. The needle that is used during your Cellfina treatment is so small that there is very little risk of bleeding or scarring. Minimal bruising and swelling are quite normal and should fade fairly quickly after treatment.
To help support a quicker recovery and minimize swelling, you may benefit from wearing compression garments for a week after treatment. Any discomfort after the procedure should be mild and easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
Most activities can be tolerated after treatment, and there is no need to take time off of work.
While it is possible to see improvements in as little as a few days, most results are experienced after 3 months with continued improvement for up to 1 year. Most clients only need 1 treatment to experience smoother, healthier-looking skin on the buttocks and thighs.
Cellfina can be combined with additional treatments to help you reach your body goals. Many women combine Cellfina with nonsurgical body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting® and EmSculpt® to maximize their overall look. During your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your concerns with one of our qualified providers to help decide which options are best for you.
