The Science of Cellulite
No cream, wrap, massage, or supplement will make a difference when it comes to cellulite. Yet, many topical products are marketed with the promise of results. Cellulite is not a surface issue. The problem lies beneath the skin.
While genetics, hormones, lifestyle and weight loss or gain influence the development of dimples in the skin, the primary cause is anatomical.
Dimples in the skin are caused by tiny bands (Fibrous Septae). Fibrous Septae connect the dermis to the fascia. In between the dermis and fascia is shallow fat.
These tiny bands contract/stiffen, pulling inward. While fat cells expand, pushing outward. Resulting in little dimples all over the thighs and buttocks.
Cellfina is an FDA cleared, minimally-invasive procedure clinically proven to treat cellulite of the thighs and buttocks.
A small vacuum handpiece is used to cover the dimples. The tissue is lightly suctioned. Elevating the skin 6-10mm (about half the size of a dime). A needled is inserted and a numbing agent is released into the treatment area. Finally, a Micro-Blade is used to detach the bands with a gentle swipe.
Cellfina takes about an hour. A garment is provided at the time the procedure. The garment helps to reduce minor swelling and bruising. Results are visible immediately following the procedure. We recommend waiting until the swelling has subsided to see the full effect.
Cellfina also offers the “Cellfina Guarantee“. It’s like a safety net. All you have to do is submit a form online. Cellfina Guarantee offers a second treatment free of charge if your results are unsatisfactory.*
