What Should I Expect After My Cellfina Treatment?

Have you heard? 

There’s a new cellulite reduction treatment on the market – one that promises to not only visibly reduce the appearance of dimpling but also deliver results that last for more than two years.*

The name of the innovative treatment is Cellfina, and as an FDA-approved, minimally invasive cellulite solution, it’s already a popular option with patients looking to wear bathing suits, white pants or shorts with more confidence.  The treatment itself is simple – Cellfina uses a needle technology to release connective tissue bands that exist throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks.  These bands tightly pull down the skin, creating cellulite dimpling.  Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days.*

If you’re considering Cellfina, you may be wondering what you should expect after treatment.  Here’s what to anticipate:

  • There’s little to no downtime or recovery associated with Cellfina treatments; however, you may notice some bruising and soreness at the treatment site. This soreness tends to disappear after a few days but bruising can persist for up to a month.
  • You’ll notice a (nearly) immediate improvement in the appearance of your cellulite, with final results visible within the first two weeks after treatment.*
  • Most patients only need one Cellfina treatment to see ideal results.* You’ll discuss with Dr. Boudreault how many treatments you may need to achieve your goals.
  • Over 80% of patients are still happy with their Cellfina results two years after their initial procedure, making this a highly successful procedure.*
