Cellfina Pre + Post Care Instructions


  • Avoid consuming alcohol and/or smoking 2-days before your treatment and 2-days post treatment.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications 10-14 days prior and 3-4 days post treatment. Medications such as Aspirin and other NSAIDS, Vitamin E, Fish oil, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng, and St. John’s Wart should be avoided as they can increase the chance of bruising.
  • Consider taking Arnica tablets 1 week prior to injections to prevent bruising. Arnica can be found at any health food store. We have Arnica available at ENIC.
  • Days leading up to the procedure, be more aware of areas that bother you. This will assist us in marking you.


  • Avoid shaving, laser hair removal, electrolysis, waxing threading, and use of depilatory creams the day of your procedure
  • Do not apply creams or lotions to the area being treated.
  • Wear loose fitting clothing.
  • You will be provided with a garment to wear after the procedure.


  • Your procedure will last approximately 60 minutes to 2 hours depending on the areas treated.
  • You are welcome to bring entertainment: phone, music player, tablet and/or earphones to listen to during the procedure.
  • As this procedure is done under complete local anesthesia, you may drive to and from our center.

What to Expect

  • Tissue release sites may seep from the treatment area for up to 12 hours. Sterile gauze bandages (i.e. ABD pads) may be used to cover the treatment sites.
  • The provided compression garments should be worn as often as possible for the first 2 weeks
  • Extreme physical activity and exercise should be avoided within the first 24 hours post treatment. Elevating your core temperature and increasing your heart rate via exercise will cause more swelling.

Recuperation + Healing

  • You may or may not experience the following conditions in and/or around the treatment areas:
  • Bruising and Swelling
  • Areas of firmness or hardness under the skin
  • Inflammation (generalized redness) surrounding the treatment area
  • Mild bleeding
  • Numbness, tingling, or sensitivity changes
  • Tenderness and pain
  • Itching
  • The normal healing process will result in fluid accumulation within the treatment area, which may be felt when touched. This fluid is a normal occurrence after your treatment and may be felt when touched. Such is normal and results in new tissue formation necessary to lift and smooth the treated cellulite dimples. The transition from fluid to more solid tissue should occur over the next several weeks and may result in a feeling of firmness or hardness under the skin. Such firmness should diminish with time.

Avoid the Following

  • Do not shave your legs for 4-days post treatment.
  • Avoid tanning or prolonged exposure 2 weeks.
  • Avoid shaving until the tenderness has subsided.
  • It is best to avoid showering until 24 hours after your Cellfina procedure. Do not take a bath or sit in stagnant water for 7 days.
