How It Works

The Cellfina® Treatment is a one-time cellulite treatment performed at a doctor’s office in less than an hour. Results can be seen in as little as three days, and results last at least 3 years.1,2

An Effective Cellulite Solution

The Cellfina® Treatment helps smooth away dimples for long-term reduction of cellulite for at least three years. Cellfina® combines highly advanced, proprietary technology with a well-established procedure called Subcision®, to treat the underlying structural cause of cellulite. It relies on a minimally-invasive, needle-sized device to release the cellulite-causing fibrous septae under the dimpled areas. Once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out. Just one 45-60 minute Cellfina® Treatment significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.


Minimally Invasive Treatment with Limited Downtime

Cellfina® is a single, 45–60 minute treatment performed by a qualified physician in an office setting. First, cellulite dimples are marked. Then the provider delivers a local numbing agent followed by the treatment itself. After the Cellfina® Treatment, patients can go about their day, but may prefer to take it easy for the first 24 hours.


There have been no serious adverse events associated with the Cellfina® Treatment. The most common side effects reported were soreness, tenderness and bruising. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal, and most (82 percent) felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. This minimal pain improved quickly, and over 90 percent of patients had no bruising at four weeks.3
