Cellfina™ Treatment in Seattle, WA
Cellulite becomes an increasingly common problem as women get older. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of minimally invasive cosmetic solutions available that can bring patients in Seattle and Everett long-term relief from this aesthetic frustration. Cellfina™ is one of the latest and greatest of these treatments.
Get Smooth, Youthful-Looking Skin with Cellfina™ for Cellulite at North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics!
Cellfina™ is one of the most effective, least invasive solutions to cellulite available today. Currently, North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics is one of only three practices in the state of Washington that uses this technology. A single Cellfina™ treatment can bring patients results that last for at least two years, longer than any other FDA-approved cellulite procedure today. While results last for at least three years, they can persist for as long as five in ideal conditions. This procedure can be used to address small and large cellulite dimples on the butt, the back of thighs, and the outer thighs.
How Does Cellfina™ Work?
While many other procedures that address cellulite only temporarily improve its appearance, Cellfina™ can bring long-lasting, meaningful changes as it targets the underlying structures of the skin that cause cellulite to form. During a Cellfina™ treatment, the fibrous bands underneath the skin that create the dimpling characteristic of cellulite are released. This leaves the skin’s surface smooth and cellulite-free.
What Can I Expect from Cellfina™?
Each Cellfina™ procedure takes about an hour to complete. Before treatment begins, the cellulite dimples are carefully marked — between 20-30 dimples can be treated at a time. Once the dimples are marked, an anesthetic is injected into the treatment area. A suction cup is attached to the dimples, and a small, fine needle is inserted into them to carefully release the fibrous bands of connective tissue.
Following treatment, side effects like bruising, swelling, soreness, and tenderness at the treatment site are common. Fortunately, these usually fade within a few weeks of receiving treatment. Typically, patients do not develop scars after receiving treatment. The full results of treatment become visible between two and three months after the initial procedure. In a clinical study, results were visible as soon as three days.
