Cellfina™ for Cellulite

Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California is among the first 13 practices in the world exclusively selected to offer this exciting, new cellulite treatment!  

We are thrilled to offer Cellfina, the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to clear the underlying causes of cellulite for at least one year—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.

In just one 45-minute treatment, Cellfina significantly improves the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. The result? A smooth, healthy look and the confidence to wear a little black dress, a pair of short shorts or a string bikini, and know you look as terrific as you feel.

 

What causes cellulite? 

Fibrous bands, or septae, connect the skin to underlying tissue at select points, creating “chambers” of fat cells. When bands contract, they pull down on the skin, creating a dimpled appearance.

 

What is Cellfina™?

Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least one year–longer than any other FDA-cleared treatment for cellulite. Cellfina combines proven and innovative technologies to clear the underlying causes of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks.

 

How does Cellfina work?

After a local numbing solution is administered, a qualified physician uses the Cellfina™ system to target the structural problems that cause cellulite. By releasing the fibrous bands under the dimpled areas, Cellfina can reduce the appearance of cellulite in just one treatment session.

 

How soon will I see improvement?

Within just three days after treatment, patients in the FDA-approved pivotal study reported feeling very satisfied with their results. At three months, 85 percent of patients were satisfied, and after one year, 94 percent were satisfied, surpassing patient satisfaction rates for all other cellulite treatments.

 

How long do results last?

Patients in the FDA-approved pivotal study showed significant improvement after just one treatment, with results lasting at least a year–longer than any other FDS-cleared treatment for cellulite.

 

If I undergo Cellfina to reduce cellulite and then gain or lose weight will my results change?

It has not been studied but improvement in the appearance of cellulite with Cellfina treatments have lasted for over one year and are the result of releasing the fibrotic bands, not changing fat volume so minor weight changes are not likely to not affect results.

 

Are there any side effects?

There have been no serious adverse events associated with Cellfina. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA-approved pivotal study were soreness and bruising. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal (2.7 on a scale of 0 to 10; 0=no pain, 10=extreme pain) and most (82%) felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. This minimal pain improved quickly with time. Over 90% of patients had no bruising at 4 weeks.

 

How long does the procedure take?

The in-office procedure takes approximately 45 minutes, depending on the individual patient and the number of areas being treated.

 

Will I need to take time off?

There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina. Some patients experience initial soreness, tenderness, and bruising but theses side effects resolve quickly with time.

 

How much does the Cellfina treatment cost?

Treatment costs will vary depending on a number of factors, including geographic location and individual patient needs. Because the treatment area is so personalized, we recommend consulting with one of our physicians to determine your exact costs.
