What is Cellfina™?
The Cellfina™ System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. Performed by Suffolk Plastic Surgeon’s qualified doctors, Cellfina™ treats the primary structural cause of cellulite for a smooth and healthy look that gives patients the confidence to wear a bathing suit and higher hemlines. SPS is the only practice in the region to offer Cellfina!
It's Long Lasting
Patients in the clinical study showed significant improvement within three days after the treatment. Two years after treatment, 100 percent of Cellfina™ patients had noticeable improvement (based on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). Cellfina™ patients report high rates of satisfaction with their treatment results. At three months, 85 percent of patients were satisfied, at one year 94 percent were satisfied and after two years, 96 percent of patients were satisfied, surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.*
*Satisfaction rates were evaluated separately and are not based on direct comparisons among treatments.
How does the Cellfina™ System work?
The Cellfina™ System treats the primary structural cause of cellulite—the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.
Does Cellfina™ involve cutting?
Cellfina™ does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.
How long do results last?
Patients in the pivotal study showed significant improvement shortly after the treatment, with results lasting at least two years—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.
How long does the procedure take?
In just one 45-minute treatment, Cellfina™, significantly improves the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.
Will I need to take time off?
There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina™. Some patients experience initial soreness and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time.
