Cellulite creates unsightly dimples due to microscopic attachments called fibrous septae. These fibers function to connect the skin to the underlying fat. Over time, as fat cells grow and contract the fibers loosen and stretch, leaving dimples, lumps, and bumps on the skin.
Women are much more likely than men to develop cellulite. Fat cells and connective tissue that cause cellulite are arranged vertically in women, while in men they form a criss-cross structure. Hormones, aging, diet, lifestyle, and genetic factors also play a role in cellulite development, which is a something our Cellfina in Seattle procedure address.
Cellfina® is the first and only FDA-approved, minimally-invasive procedure that has been proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for a minimum of three years. This one-time treatment works by treating the primary structural cause of cellulite – the connective bands woven throughout the fatty tissue in the buttocks and thighs.
These tight connective bands within the fat pull down on the skin, causing it to pucker or dimple. When the bands are released in a Cellfina® procedure, the skin is able to bounce back and smooth itself out in only a few days.
At Egrari Non-Invasive Center, ENIC, in Seattle, we offer Cellfina® treatments to patients who want to improve the appearance of cellulite on buttocks and thighs. Procedures are performed in our exquisite, free-standing, state-of-the-art facility in Bellevue where we focus on the most effective non-invasive treatments. Dr. Egrari and the entire staff at Egrari Non-Invasive Center are committed to providing the latest advancements in non-invasive treatment options to our patients in a modern, luxurious setting.
The procedure is performed using a local anesthetic in an outpatient setting. Once the area to be treated is numbed, the procedure proceeds as follows:
Women with visible cellulite on thighs or buttocks.
Women with a BMI under 35.

Women who prefer a one-time, minimally-invasive procedure.
