Cellfina works to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite.
Oh, that dreaded cellulite! What causes it, and can anything be done to get rid of it?
Cellulite is a frustrating thing amongst women. It’s caused by a variety of factors including genetics, hormones, poor circulation, a sedentary lifestyle, and thick bands within fat tissue.
For those with cellulite, topical treatments typically containing caffeine and amino acids can help improve local circulation and diminish the appearance of dimples. But, to put it honestly, they don’t get rid of cellulite. and only offer temporary benefits.
If you’re serious about improving the appearance of your skin and
While there are many different treatments on the market that help the look of cellulite, and are effective in tightening the skin, there hasn’t been one that actually tackles the root of the problem. And by root, I mean the bands of connective tissue that are intertwined beneath your skin. Those tight bands pull down on the skin, creating that dimpled effect you often see on the surface.
Is there anything that can tackle these tight bands? The answer is, yes. I can report that there is a treatment that finally addresses this issue and it’s a treatment called Cellfina.
What is Cellfina?
So how does it work? I first learned about this treatment while speaking with the professionals at SpaMedica in Toronto. The treatment begins with your cellulite dimples being marked. Each dimple on the buttocks area (at press time, this is the only area that Cellfina is approved for treating) is clearly marked with a circle and numbed with a tiny injection, ensuring that you will feel no discomfort at all during the procedure. A small handheld device (a small needle-size device that you don’t really feel) then grabs the skin using suction and slides a miniature blade below the surface to sever the connective bands. Once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days.
What are the side effects of Cellfina?
Reported side effects include soreness, tenderness, and bruising that can last up to three days. There can even some liquid leakage from the area after the procedure. According to the FDA, this non-invasive procedure is proven to deliver up to 98 per cent improvement in treated patients, with results that last for up to three years.
To see if you’re a candidate for Cellfina, go to your local medical spa and get a consultation. If you’re in Toronto, go to SpaMedica. They have a trusted and knowledgable staff who will explain the procedure in great detail.
