Cellulite is an issue that affects women of any age. While most people associate cellulite with fat, even those with moderate levels of body fat can experience the issue. These small dimples typically show up on the thighs and buttocks. They can be difficult to get rid of alone. Luckily, there are some great options to reduce their appearance. Cellfina® is a minimally-invasive cellulite reduction procedure that targets the cause of cellulite directly.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is characterized by dimples and puckering on the surface of the skin. It’s from connective bands that are woven in the fat. These bands are very thin and fibrous. They connect your skin to the tissue underneath it. Unfortunately, it has to go through the fat to connect to the tissue below. As you gain weight, the fat layer gets slightly thicker in size. This causes tension in the bands. It pulls your skin down, resulting in the dimples.
Cellfina® and Cellulite Reduction
Cellfina® treats cellulite by targeting those connective bands directly. It can be used for cellulite reduction in the thighs and buttock area. This treatment alleviates tension on the bands, which releases the tension on your skin. Within three days, you’ll notice that the dimples may have bounced back to give you the smooth skin you have always wanted. The length of your treatment session will depend on your needs. After that, there’s very little downtime to worry about. Most people can return to their normal activities about 24 hours after treatment. It’s a one-time treatment and the results may last up to two years.
