How Can I Get Rid of My Cellulite?

3 minute read

Cellulite affects between 85 and 98 percent of women who have gone through puberty, and the buttocks and thighs can be plagued by cellulite. 

So it’s no surprise that one of the most common questions women have regarding their bodies is, “how do you get rid of cellulite?”

What Is Cellulite?

There are tissues in the skin that separate areas of fat throughout the body. Cellulite develops when fibrous strands throughout the fat pull too tightly on certain areas, creating dimpling in the skin.

Here is a picture of how cellulite develops:

Cellulite is frustrating for many women because of how little can be done to correct it. There is no diet to get rid of cellulite, and there are no foods that cause cellulite. 

There are no home remedies or exercises for cellulite that you can take advantage of, either. Cellulite creams are generally not useful, and even losing weight does not guarantee you will get rid of your cellulite.

But there is CELLFINA™.  

What Is CELLFINA™?

CELLFINA™ uses intense suction to break the fibers in the skin that cause cellulite to develop.

Once the bands have been released, the skin will even itself out and return to a smooth appearance within three days of the procedure.

What Kind of Recovery Time Does CELLFINA™ Require?

One of the best things about CELLFINA™ is that there is almost no recovery time needed. While you may experience some soreness, tenderness, or bruising during your recovery, most patients can resume their regular activities the day after their cellulite treatment. 

 Most side effects typically resolve completely within a week, but the results continue to develop for many months afterward.

Can I Combine CELLFINA™ With Other Procedures?

While CELLFINA™ can produce dramatic results on its own, you can combine it with other body sculpting procedures to improve even further on your current physique. 

The most common procedures that are combined with CELLFINA™ are CoolSculpting® and CoolTone™.

Combining CELLFINA™ and CoolSculpting® 

CoolSculpting® removes unwanted fat from the body by using controlled cooling to freeze the fat cells underneath the skin. 

The frozen cells crystallize and are eventually removed naturally by the body.

Since CoolSculpting® can be performed in as little as an hour, this is the ideal method for a patient who would like to avoid downtime. The results are long lasting if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle. 

Combining CELLFINA™ and CoolTone™ 

After using CELLFINA™ to reduce the appearance of cellulite throughout the body, you still may be looking for something a little extra to complete your transformation.

CoolTone™ is a new technology that tightens and defines the muscles and skin on your body for a more sculpted appearance. 

The procedure is fairly straightforward: a CoolTone™ applicator is placed on the targeted area. The applicator then released magnetic pulses to contract the muscle and build muscle fibers. 

Have More Questions?

Every patient has a unique anatomy, which means every procedure will be different. CELLFINA™ can be combined with plenty of other options to help achieve your desired appearance.
