FAQs about Cellfina

What is Cellfina?


The Cellfina™ System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. An outpatient procedure offered through a qualified physician, Cellfina™ combines a proven approach with innovative technology to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite. The result is a smooth look that gives patients the confidence to wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines.




What are the key benefits?


- Long-lasting - FDA-cleared - One-time treatment - Significant, rapid improvement - Minimally invasive - Effective and well-tolerated - Limited downtime - 96% patient satisfaction at two years




How does it work?


The Cellfina™ System treats the primary structural cause of cellulite—the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.




What are the results of Cellfina?


Patients in the pivotal study showed significant improvement within three days after the treatment. Two years after treatment, 100 percent of Cellfina™ patients had noticeable improvement on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). Results from Cellfina™ last at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment.




Are there any side effects?


No serious adverse events were associated with Cellfina™ in the pivotal study. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA-cleared pivotal study were soreness, tenderness 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 percent) felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. This minimal pain improved quickly with time. More than 90 percent of patients had no bruising at four weeks.




What are the treatment costs?


The Cellfina™ treatment is customized to each patient, so the best way to secure an accurate assessment is to consult with a physician.
