How Does Cellfina Work?

To understand how Cellfina works, it's important to first understand exactly what cellulite is. Although most people believe cellulite is simply a by-product of excess fat, the condition is actually a bit more complex. The dimples that appear on thighs and buttocks are caused by fibrous bands of tissue that pull on skin from below. This is why these stubborn dimples can't be adequately treated by topical products or special massages.

Cellfina works by targeting the structure of cellulite, breaking it down and smoothing it away. The Cellfina tool uses a very small microblade to release the fibrous bands. The outpatient procedure requires very small incisions and allows patients to return to work and other light activities immediately.

How Cellfina Releases Trapped Edema

Your Procedure

Cellfina requires only local numbing of the treatment area, which means you'll be awake and comfortable throughout your procedure. Dr. Colville begins by applying the Cellfina handpiece to your treatment area, where it comfortably and securely attaches. He directs the microblade just below your skin, where it releases the bands.

The procedure is relatively brief, and thanks to the device's small blade, it leaves little effect behind. No stitches are necessary. You may experience some slight swelling or bruising afterward, but these signs are mild and temporary.

How Does Cellfina Compare?

Cellfina is an FDA-cleared treatment for cellulite, making it one-of-a-kind here at Dr. Colville's office. Unlike CoolSculpting® and liposuction, Cellfina isn't intended to reduce fat. Instead, it smooths away lumps and dimples caused by cellulite.

Cellfina CoolSculpting Liposuction
Nonsurgical, requires small incisions Nonsurgical and noninvasive Surgical, typically requires anesthesia
Reduces cellulite on the buttocks and thighs Reduces fat on the abdomen, thighs, back, arms, hips, and neck Reduces fat anywhere on the face and body
Back to light activities the same day Back to all activities the same day Downtime lasts 1 week or so
Results visible a few days after 1 treatment Results develop over several months, may require multiple treatments Results instant, but initial swelling must fade over a few weeks

Results

The results of a treatment with Cellfina are overwhelmingly positive. In a study conducted by the FDA, Cellfina patients saw impressive improvement after just 1 treatment. About 94% of those patients said they were still satisfied with their results after 1 year, while 85% were still happy after 3 years.
