Along with vacations, fun days by the pool and sunny skies, summer also brings something many of us dread – facing up to the problem of cellulite
Especially noticeable on thighs and buttocks, cellulite’s appearance is often compared to an orange peel or cottage cheese. Even after exercising regularly and losing weight, these lumpy, bumpy fat bulges can remain. And rubbing on products that claim to eliminate cellulite typically do little except smooth skin temporary.
If finding a solution to your cellulite problem sounds hopeless, it’s not. Thanks to a new, non-surgical breakthrough called Cellfina™, cellulite has finally met its match.
Dr. Lisa M. DiFrancesco answers your questions about cellulite and Cellfina™.
What exactly is cellulite?
Fibrous bands of connective tissue are woven throughout fat, especially in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands can pull down the skin and create the dimpled fat look known as cellulite.
How does Cellfina™ help?
Cellfina™ is an FDA-approved way to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite. A minimally invasive, small needle-sized device releases the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin. Once released, skin in the treated areas smooths out.
How much downtime results from a Cellfina™ treatment?
There’s little to no downtime at all. No surgery or general anesthesia is involved and it only takes one 45 minute treatment for Cellfina™ to significantly improve the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. Some patients experience minimal soreness and some bruising afterwards, but these effects resolve quickly, usually in about a week.
When will I see results?
Results can be visible in as little as three days. Cellfina™, technology produces precise, long-lasting results that typically last for at least three years.
