What is Cellfina?

We often associate cellulite with excess fat. However, cellulite affects many patients regardless of body mass, physical activity level, or weight. It is possible to be slim and physically fit and still have cellulite.

Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective bands that tether the skin to the underlying muscle. Fat in between the skin and muscle can cause the skin to push further away from the muscle. The bands pull the skin down where they are connected, thus creating dimpling in the skin. Cellfina attacks the structural cause of cellulite at the source.

How Does Cellfina Work?

Cellfina works by employing a suction device to lift the patient’s tissue, specifically at the point of the cellulite dimple. From there, a thin needle numbs each dimple area. Lastly, a second vibrating needle cuts the fibrous bands underneath the skin that form the dimple.

Similar to pulling a rubber band and releasing it, the targeted skin springs back to a smoother texture. Cellfina is a one-time treatment and is considered a minor surgical procedure. Results continue to improve over time and last for years.

The Cellfina Procedure

Dr. Teotia combines a proven process with her own innovative methods to resolve the structural cause of cellulite.

She will:

  • Mark each dimple.
  • Administer a local numbing anesthetic.
  • Utilize a tiny micro-blade to release the bands beneath the skin at each dimple.

Anesthesia will be administered to ease patient discomfort. Many patients are comfortable enough to bring their earbuds to listen to music or watch videos during their Cellfina treatment. The process itself only lasts about an hour.

Once this brief procedure is complete, a compression garment is applied. Compression is worn for two weeks following the procedure. During this time, low-impact activities are encouraged. You should experience visible results within weeks after your treatment.

Cellfina Downtime

Although many patients leave our office wanting to return to work, we suggest that you take it easy for at least 24 hours. Tylenol or other over-the-counter pain relievers are great ways to help manage any after-treatment discomfort. There are slight side-effects you may expect after a Cellfina treatment. These include mild soreness, tenderness, bruising, and draining at the incision sites. These will all resolve within a few days.

Cellfina Candidates

Any adult who wants to diminish visible cellulite are potential candidates for Cellfina treatments with Dr. Teotia. That said, there are still some safety requirements that you’ll need to meet.

Cellfina FAQs

Cellfina does not involve general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally-invasive, needle-sized device to resolve the cellulite-causing bands just under the skin’s surface. It is considered a minor surgical procedure.

Each patient is different and will have unique results. That said, there are some research trends that are useful. A clinical study indicates that noticeable improvements actualize within three days. Many patients still see noticeable improvements after five years.

You may experience slight bruising, tenderness, and soreness. At the three day mark, most patients rate their discomfort as minimal. Over 90% of patients say they have no bruising after four weeks.

Cellfina requires minimal downtime. Some patients resume their daily routine immediately after they leave the office. We suggest taking at least a full 24 hours to rest.
