Cellulite, a common yet often distressing condition, affects 80-90% of post-pubertal women. Factors like age, body type, and genetics play a role in its prevalence, making it a widespread cosmetic concern.

Addressing this issue, Cellfina offers a transformative solution. As an FDA-approved, non-surgical approach, this minimally invasive treatment is skillfully administered by Dr. Darren M. Smith. It precisely targets and releases the fibrous bands responsible for cellulite’s dimpled appearance on the buttocks and thighs.

Using advanced subcision technology, Cellfina effectively smooths away the lumps and bumps associated with cellulite, providing results that can endure for five years or more. 

What is Cellfina?

Many women deal with cellulite, which causes uneven, bumpy skin. Cellfina is a breakthrough treatment that significantly reduces these lumps and bumps on the buttocks and thighs. It offers the freedom to wear shorts and swimsuits without worry.

How Does Cellfina Work to Treat Cellulite?

Cellfina addresses cellulite’s root cause by focusing on the connective tissue bands beneath the skin. Using a precise microblade technique, Cellfina releases these fibrous bands, allowing the skin to smooth out. 

The treatment is not only efficient (typically taking less than an hour) but also offers lasting results, with improvements visible in as little as three days and lasting up to five years.

What Are the Benefits of Cellfina?

Cellfina combines safety, effectiveness, and convenience in cellulite treatment:

  • FDA-Approved: Guarantees the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
  • Effective and Minimally Invasive: Directly targets the structural cause of cellulite in a gentle, nonsurgical procedure.
  • No Stitches or Scars: The technique leaves your skin smooth, without marks.
  • Efficient Treatment: Capable of treating up to 25 dimples in just one hour.
  • Long-Lasting Results with a Single Treatment: Enjoy visible improvements for up to 5 years, eliminating the need for frequent sessions.
  • Easy Recovery: Quick recovery time allows you to return to your routine with minimal downtime.
  • Cost-Effective: More affordable and less risky compared to alternatives like Cellulaze.

Cellfina’s FDA approval, efficiency and minimal invasiveness make it a preferred choice for cellulite treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Cellfina?

Cellfina is designed for women seeking to address moderate to severe cellulite, particularly in the buttocks and thigh areas. It works best for those with healthy skin in these regions and is effective across all skin tones and colors.

Cellfina is most effective for individuals who meet these criteria:

  1. Age Range: Ideally between 20 and 60 years old.
  2. Stable Weight: Best results are seen in those with a consistent body weight.
  3. Skin Condition: Minimal skin laxity is important for effective treatment.
  4. Specific Cellulite Areas: Cellfina is particularly effective for cellulite on the thighs and buttocks.

Cellfina is most effective for specific cellulite dimples, rather than widespread areas. It’s ideal for targeted spots but may not yield dramatic results for larger cellulite zones.

Dr. Smith recommends a personal consultation to evaluate if Cellfina is suitable for you. He provides a customized approach to ensure the best possible results.
