Cellfina: when should I do it, what's recovery consist of, will incision marks show?
We have been doing Cellfina for almost 1 year now and have learned a great deal in that time. Teachhing multiple training courses has also helped me. The red marks are from the micro-blade punctures and they are 2-3mm wide. They are evident early on but typically fade over 2-4 months. Lighter skinned folks tend to form more favorable scars so you are good there.The early bruising can be modest to impressive, depending on the individual. We have seen that the circular dimples on the buttocks respond most favorably, followed by the thighs. Simple contour irregularities, whether caused by aging, weight fluctuation, or damage, are not corrected by Cellfina. In those cases, we will add V-Shape treatments to smooth out those areas and we have seen great results from combined therapy. Your pant tize will not change with Cellfina, just the appearance of the dimples.
There is only one truly effective and proven lasting cellulite treatment out there, and that is CELLFINA. All of the other lotions, potions, creams, treatments, radio frequency devices, including Cellulaze, are at best, mediocre, and, in many cases, completely worthless. Cellulaze is a laser-based procedure that has a much higher complication rate, as well as a much lower patient satisfaction rate, so that answer is pretty clear. CELLFINA is the only cellulite treatment that has a proven track record of 96% patient satisfaction at 2 years post treatment. Nothing else is even remotely as effective as Cellfina. I have attached a link to my website, explaining how this remarkable system works. There are patient testimonials and schematics reviewing the details of this remarkable breakthrough treatment. Also, Cellfina is a single session procedure that is done under local anesthesia with little to no pain! Thank you for your excellent question.

Recovery from Cellfina is pretty easy, soreness and tenderness for a few days, bruising for a few weeks. There are tiny incisions that should disappear with time but initially may look red or pink in a fair skinned person. No special garments are needed after the second week (during that time Spanx is recommended). Light exercise is advisable for the first 30 days. It isn't long before all is back to better than normal.
Lose weight or treat first for cellulite
For you, it is about the wait....
Furthermore, you don't really seem to have much true cellulite. There are a few dimples but they're fairly limited. I just recently saw a patient in my office who was certain that she had cellulite. In fact, we were excited to add Cellfina to the office with her primarily in mind. As it turns out, when she finally came in for her consultation, she actually had a fat deposit and not cellulite. She has since had me do her liposuction and is doing great.
Your best bet is to have an in person visit with a board certified plastic surgeon. He or she will be able to determine the type of treatment that will lead you to the most satisfying and confident result.
Cellulite teatments--now we have one that works Cellfina
Q: I'm 34 years old, 114 lbs, and I'm 5'2. I work out 3 - 5 times a week and when I weigh 110 lbs or less my cellulite is much less visible. I have had cellulite since my 20s. I am going to Mexico in early June.
A: I like to separate these kind of procedures by 8 weeks. Also, if you over seas and need an issue addressed it might for that reason be preferable to get the procedure done when you come back.
Q: Is it better to get the procedure when I have more cellulite or less cellulite?
A: My suggestion would be to get it now and go back in a few years for maintenance.
Q: What will the recovery consist of, will I be able to wear regular jeans?
A: Minimal swelling.
Q: Will the incision marks show considering I am very light skinned?
A: There are no incisions, just entry points for needles.
Cellfina is a great choice for the price. Cellulite is EXTREMELY difficult to treat. In 2017 Cellfina is your best bet for the money. Many treatment modalities have attempted to address cellulite. Most of them have been laser. Other treatments have included topical ointments of various kinds.
There are two major approaches to Cellulite: Cellfina and Cellulaze. Cellfina uses very small needles to break up the bands bringing down the skin and causing dimples. If you want a non invasive proven treatment for Cellulite, Cellfina is a great choice.
Cellfina is a precise technology that addresses the actual cause of cellulite. I have used Cellulaze. I like it for very large areas with small dimpling. The larger dimples will require "cutting the parachute strings" which cause pulling on the skin. Cellulaze has three modes (burst, melt, tighten). The theory is as follows: The burst mode is supposed to break the bands (parachute strings), the melt mode is supposed to melt the fat and the tighten mode is supposed to tighten the skin. I think with small dimpling and large areas you can achieve a moderate result.
With Cellfina the technology directly addresses the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin, causing puckering or dimpling. The Cellfina device numbs the skin and cuts these bands.
What to expect:
- minimal discomfort
- mild tenderness.
- Compression garments for a month (at night is fine after 2 weeks)
- Limit exercise exercise to upper extremity strenuous.
I hope this helps.
