Cellfina - small puncture, big results
Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment for unwanted dimples on the
buttocks. The small blade that is used to release the fibrous bands is
equivalent to a needle stick. These punctures require no sutures and
heal within days typically without being visible, think of the puncture
sites as having a needle injection. Thank you for your question and
best of luck with your Cellfina procedure. I hope you find the
procedure as beneficial as our patients seem to.
Does Cellfina treatment leave scars?
Thank you for your question.
The entry points for the Cellfina system require a small puncture in the skin not much larger than a needle. Therefore, while you may see some areas of redness for the first few weeks to months these are generally extremely small and should not be noticeable.
I recommend you have a discussion with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss all the details of the Cellfina treatment.

Cellfina Puncture Sites
Treatment of cellulite with the Cellfina System requires using a needle-sized microscalpel device to release tethering bands underneath the skin. After treatment with Cellfina, patients can experience bruising at the puncture sites. This bruising is evidenced by tiny red or brownish spots. Any hyperpigmentation of the puncture sites will fade with time, and there should be minimal scarring once they are healed. Healing time for patients does vary as every person heals differently. Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon regarding how Cellfina can help you to achieve your goals. Good luck in your research!

Healing after Cellfina
Healing after CellfinaThere is no cutting and no incisions. To perform this controlled, precise, and safe procedure, a vacuum hand piece is placed over the dimpled tissue through which the surgeon will deliver a local anesthetic. Then a small, needle-like microblade is inserted to release the fibrous bands, the cause of cellulite.
Results can be seen in as little as three days post-op. Most patients report some soreness, tenderness, and bruising, which should resolve within a week. 90% of patients reported no bruising after one month. To ensure the best results, a compressive garment should be worn for 2 weeks post-treatment.
