Ninety percent of women experience cellulite, and one hundred percent of them hate it. The dimpled and lumpy appearance of the skin from cellulite sometimes keeps women from wearing shorts, a small dress, or their favorite bikini.
Instead of covering up the buttocks and thighs, there is a solution for Naples residents!
How does Cellfina Work?
Cellfina® helps smooth away cellulite dimples by treating the primary structural cause of the cellulite, the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks that pull down and cause a puckering at the skin’s surface.
By releasing these bands, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days. Also, the results are long-lasting. In fact, the Cellfina® System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years, which is the longest FDA-cleared duration for any cellulite treatment.
Day of the Procedure
On the day of your procedure, the areas of cellulite in the buttocks and thighs are marked and documented. At this time, we are careful to ensure that all of the areas that concern you are a part of the treatment plan. A local numbing agent is then applied to the treatment areas.
About the Procedure
The procedure itself involves using a tissue stabilization device which pulls the skin up slightly using a vacuum, allowing the device’s small motorized reciprocating blade to release the fibrous bands associated with cellulite using a process known as subcision. The procedure may take as long as ninety minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. Due to the use of local anesthesia, most patients are comfortable and watch TV, rest, or surf the internet.
After the Procedure
After the procedure, compressive garments and absorbent pads are applied. The compressive garments are recommended to be worn for the next two weeks. There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina®. Some patients experience initial soreness and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time. Bruising may occur, and in 90% of patients, was resolved four weeks after the procedure.
A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to examine the treatment area, and compare the before and after images. Patients in a study were 93 percent satisfied at 3 years, surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.
The Cellfina® Yearlong Assurance Guarantee
The procedure is so effective that it comes with a guarantee, called the Cellfina® Yearlong Assurance Guarantee. If your cellulite dimples return within a year of treatment, Cellfina® will cover your re-treatment at no cost to you.
