Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive, procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for up to three years. This is the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. Cellfina combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology, to produce precise and long lasting results.
The Cellfina System treats the main structural cause of cellulite is the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, thus creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. This is similar to a rubber band under tension. Once this band is released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.
As little as three days results can be seen. In the study, patient satisfaction was 85% at three months, 94% at one year, 96% at two years and 93% at 3 years. This surpasses the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.
Patients in the study showed significant improvement shortly after the treatment, with results lasting up to 3 years. This is the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.
No, there is no serious adverse side effects associated with Cellfina in the study. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA‑cleared study was soreness, tenderness and bruising. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal and most patients felt pain only with touch or pressure to the treated area. This minimal pain improved quickly with time. More than 90 percent of patients had no bruising at four weeks after treatment.
