Cellfina is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of cellulite. The provider uses small needles to cut into the fibrous, connective bands under your skin that create dimples, allowing the skin to smooth out. Though results vary, many doctors consider it the most effective cellulite treatment currently available.
Good candidates for Cellfina include those who:
- are between 20 and 60
- have a stable weight
- have minimal skin laxity, or looseness
How it works?
Cellfina best targets dimple-type cellulite. The procedure has only been cleared by the FDA for treating cellulite in the thighs and buttocks.
Connective tissue called fibrous bands cause cellulite dimples in the skin. These bands connect your skin to tissue underneath. The fibrous bands can pull some skin in, causing the surrounding fat to bulge. This can create small depressions, or cellulite dimples, throughout the area.
Cellfina technology is based on a procedure called subcision. Subcision can also treat scars and wrinkles. The technology uses a device the size of a needle to treat the connective bands just under your skin.
