The appearance of cellulite is troublesome to many people. While dimpled skin can affect anyone, cellulite is most common among women and usually appears on the thighs and buttocks. If cellulite prevents you from feeling comfortable and confident baring your legs, Cellfina™ cellulite treatment at our Raleigh, NC medical spa can minimize these dimples of fat to provide a smoother look.
To learn more about the benefits of Cellfina™ cellulite treatment, please request a consultation today. Skin Raleigh offers a wide range of nonsurgical, medical-grade skincare treatments to help you enjoy a look you’ll love.
The best candidates for Cellfina™ cellulite treatment are people who feel unhappy with the appearance of cellulite on their thighs or buttocks. While many people associate cellulite with being overweight, the dimpled texture is actually caused by tight bands of connective tissue stretched over the fatty deposits below.
Because these tough fibers form a webbed pattern that pulls down on the skin, the fat underneath is forced into lumps that are visible through the skin’s surface. The appearance of cellulite is related to genetics rather than weight, so even very slender women can benefit from cellulite treatment.
Cellfina™ is an FDA-cleared cellulite treatment that addresses the cause of cellulite at its source. By using a needle-sized device to release the tissue bands that create cellulite, Cellfina™ can smooth out dimpled areas on the thighs and buttocks in as little as 3 days, and you should continue seeing improvement over the next 2 years.
Cellfina™ requires only a single treatment that lasts about an hour. This nonsurgical cellulite treatment may be used on its own or in combination with body contouring to further enhance your slimmer figure.
A single Cellfina™ session lasts about 1 hour. You may feel some tenderness in the treated area immediately after your appointment, which should fade in the first 3-5 days. Cellfina™ requires basically no downtime and most people resume their normal routines the following day, although some soreness may be present for the first few days. It’s also common for the treatment area to have some bruising, which should subside within 4 weeks of your treatment.
A noticeable decrease in the appearance of your cellulite should be visible within 1 week of your appointment. The final results of your cellulite treatment should be apparent after 3 months.
