How long does cellfina last

Clinical studies show that more or less 85 percent of men and women are currently experiencing and badly dealing with cellulite deposits in some parts of their body. Undoubtedly, having dimple-like cellulite is one of the most intriguing issues facing people of all shapes and sizes today. To address the aforementioned problem, Cellfina--an FDA-approved, minimally-invasive procedure was introduced to treat cellulite by cutting the fibrous bands that form a dimpled appearance. Learn more from this content on how Cellfina can do wonders and how long does the treatment last.

What is Cellulite?

In understanding how Cellfina works, it is vital to know what causes cellulite first. It is noteworthy that cellulite has nothing to do with being overweight. The appearance of cellulite is mainly caused by fatty tissue that is trapped between tight and fibrous bands in the skin.

Why does cellulite occur?

The root of cellulite has something to do with your skin structure and not the amount of fat in the skin. Hence, no matter how strict you are following your diet or engaging in rigorous exercise, it will not have any significant impact on reducing cellulite. Contrary to what most people believe, body contouring plastic surgery procedures like liposuction can significantly eliminate cellulite but liposuction cannot reach the deeper layers of your tissue where cellulite usually develops.

What is Cellfina Treatment?

Cellfina treatment is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive surgical procedure that is clinically proven as a cellulite reduction procedure for at least three years as compared to other FDA-approved treatments for cellulite. It is applicable to reduce cellulite in the thighs and buttocks and specifically targets fatty tissue and cellulite with dimple-like features. Performed in our office and by a qualified and board-certified plastic surgeon, Cellfina treats the main structural cause of cellulite which restores a smoother and more attractive look. This, in turn, will provide you the confidence to reveal your skin in any revealing garment, a swimsuit or shorts.

What are the benefits of Cellfina treatment?

There are benefits that you can get when you undergo Cellfina treatment. Unlike any other cellulite-reducing treatment, Cellfina treatment can give you immediate results. It also addresses the deep fibrous bands, as compared to other treatments that only address the outward appearance of cellulite. At the same time, Cellfina treatment was FDA-approved in 2015. Since its clearing, nearly 98 percent of patients have reported being satisfied with their results. Most people who have undergone Cellulite treatment see their cellulite improving within three days following the treatment. In a few months, cellulite has nearly disappeared. Moreover, patients also report a year after their treatment that the cellulite has stayed away. You can learn the other specific benefits of Cellfina treatment in a separate post.

How can Cellfina help?

Cellfina specifically releases and targets the underlying tight fibrous bands in treatment sites that pull your skin down. As a result, it creates a dimple-like surface appearance on some parts of your body. Once these fibrous bands are being released, the skin appears dramatically smoother days after you undergo Cellfina treatment. Full results can be noticeable over the next few months following the plastic surgery procedure. The fibrous band connective tissues are the main source of cellulite dimples that are commonly seen on your thighs and buttocks. These fibrous bands connect to your skin and the tissues underneath. They have the potential to pull some skin in, which can cause the surrounding fat to bulge. It will eventually create small depressions or cellulite dimples throughout the affected areas. Cellfina technology is based on a subcision procedure, which can also effectively treat scars and wrinkles. It utilizes a needle-sized device to treat the connective bands underneath your skin. The board-certified plastic surgeon will ask you to stand before the procedure. He will use a marker to specifically identify the cellulite dimples in the affected areas in your body. After putting in some numbing solutions, he will use the Cellfina handheld device and carefully administer a microblade technique to your skin. In this process, the plastic surgeon will then use a stabilized-guided subcision technique in a fanning motion to remove the fibrous band underneath your skin, which causes the cellulite dimples to bounce back.

How long will the result of Cellfina last?

A single treatment of Cellfina offers estimated results that can last up to three years. At the same time, you can be able to schedule a follow-up treatment at your convenient time. However, it is impossible to put a specific and all-inclusive timeframe on how long the results will last since patients vary from one another. In some patients who have undergone Cellfina, results may last a lifetime, but at a minimum, expect the results to last at least three years. This makes Cellfina different from other popular cellulite treatments as other treatments require constant upkeep to sustain long-lasting results. With Cellfina treatment, you will be able to get real results that last in a single treatment.

How long does Cellfina treatment last?

You expect that the complete Cellfina treatment will last between 45 minutes to one hour, depending on the area of your body that you opt to be treated. The duration of the procedure will be longer if it is complemented with other plastic surgery treatments. The results can now be noticeable three days after the procedure and can last for approximately three years.

What Will I Feel During Cellfina Treatment?

During the Cellfina treatment, you will not feel much. The board-certified plastic surgeon will numb the target area prior to the Cellfina treatment. However, expect to experience some suctioning in the area of your body that will be treated as the procedure is ongoing work; however, it will not feel uncomfortable. Since Cellfina is a minimally-invasive procedure, the success rate is high, and there is limited downtime in the procedure. You will most likely go home a day after the procedure and also resume your daily routines. However, you will expect soreness, swelling, and bruises post-treatment in each of your treated areas. Although many patients experience soreness, more do not require prescription pain medications and receive adequate pain relief using Tylenol and other over-the-counter medication in a similar manner. Most patients attest that they feel soreness but can tolerate the discomfort without taking any pain medications at all.

What to expect following the Cellfina treatment?

For two weeks after you undergo Cellfina, Dr. Carlos Spera—a renowned Plastic Surgery in Miami recommends you to wear a compressive garment as often as possible. You should also get rid of strenuous activities and exercise routines for approximately four days and avoid exposing yourself to direct sunlight and swimming for at least a week following the procedure.
