The Cellfina® System treats the primary structural cause of cellulite—the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days. This one-time cellulite treatment is performed at a doctor’s office in less than an hour.

After the Cellfina® cellulite treatment, patients can go about their day, but may want to take it easy for up to 24 hours. There have been no serious adverse events associated with Cellfina®. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA-cleared pivotal study were soreness and bruising. Over 90% of patients had no bruising at four weeks after the cellulite procedure.

Cellfina® helps smooth away cellulite dimples for long-lasting results.

The FDA-cleared Cellfina® cellulite treatment typically takes less than an hour. Performed by a qualified physician in an office setting, Cellfina® combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite. First, cellulite dimples are marked. Then, the provider delivers a local numbing agent followed by the treatment itself. Afterward, patients are able to go about their day, but may want to take it easy for up to 24 hours. Results are visible in as little as three days and those results are still evident three years after treatment.

Patients of all ages and lifestyles are loving Cellfina®. With one easy treatment, they can treat the embarrassing cellulite that has been bothering them for years. Hear real patient stories about how they walked in with cellulite and walked out with smooth, lasting results.

The Cellfina® System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. Performed in a doctor’s office by a qualified physician, Cellfina® treats the primary structural cause of cellulite for a smooth and healthy look that gives patients the confidence to wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines.
