More than 80% of all ladies will have some degree of cellulite during their lifetime. Even thin and fit women can be plagued by dimpled skin on their thighs and buttocks. Unfortunately, as women have uniquely arranged fibrous connective tissues, they are more prone to cellulite than men. Weight fluctuations and lifestyle choices can contribute to the appearance of cellulite; but genetics and hormones play an even bigger role. Exercise, diet, and weight loss often do little to reduce this unsightly tissue.
Luckily, women in Napa and Sonoma Valley finally have a nonsurgical choice for the elimination of unsightly cellulite at Allegro MedSpa. Cellfina is the first and only FDA approved, minimally invasive treatment for cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. The innovative, new procedure takes less than an hour to perform. Best of all, Allegro MedSpa’s Cellfina treatment will provide long lasting results.
What is Cellfina?
Cellfina is a cutting-edge procedure, designed to reduce cellulite along the buttocks and thighs, without the expense or lengthily recovery associated with liposuction. This minimally invasive technique has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for up to three years. Cellfina works by treating the underlying cause of cellulite, the fibrous connective tissue that connects skin to muscle. These bands of connective tissue are called septae, and can house tiny pockets of fat that eventually give cellulite its “cottage cheese” appearance. Cellfina releases these bands, restoring an aesthetically pleasing contour to the lower body.
How Does Cellfina Work?
Cellfina works to reduce cellulite by severing the septae, or the fibrous connective bands, under the skin. Using a small, hand help applicator, the provider will suction up a small area of target tissue. Next, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area, ensuring patient comfort. Finally, a tiny reciprocating saw, within the Cellfina applicator, is used to cut the septae, releasing the tissue. Over the course of one treatment, more than 25 strands of septae can be terminated.
A Cellfina treatment will take about 45 minutes to perform in a comfortable treatment room at Allegro MedSpa. Patients are able to rest at home the same afternoon. The following day, patients are able to return to work, school, and all of their daily activities.
Outstanding Results from Cellfina at Allegro MedSpa:
The initial benefits of a Cellfina treatment can be seen in three days. As the bands of connective tissue are cut and slowly retract, the treatment area will bounce back to its original shape. Skin along the thighs and buttocks will become smooth and taut, once again. The Cellfina procedure is considered ‘one and done’, meaning only a single treatment is necessary for fabulous results. The benefits of treatment will be noticeable just a few days after the procedure, and can last up to three years or longer.
Meticulously applied, the Cellfina treatment will precisely target isolated fatty tissues. There is little chance for scaring or infection with Cellfina. Other side effects from treatment are rare, but there is the small chance for bleeding, nerve damage, and asymmetry to occur.
Patients should always seek out the best and most experienced Cellfina provider. Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas are premier providers of this groundbreaking cellulite elimination technique. Along with the staff at Allegro MedSpa, they are expertly trained in the science behind Cellfina and have extensive experience providing the in-office treatment.
