Cellfina Before & After Cases
What is Cellulite and Why Does It Occur?
Cellulite is a misunderstood, unfortunate phenomenon. Most people attribute women’s higher percentage of body fat compared with men as the reason behind cellulite, but that’s not true. The development of cellulite really comes down to anatomy, namely the bands that connect the skin and muscle. Men have thicker bands and more of them. Plus, their bands form a crisscross pattern. This keeps the fat in place, but it doesn’t make that fat pucker.
Women, on the other hand, have vertical connective bands. This arrangement traps fat in pockets. At the spots of the connective bands, the skin is pulled down while fat pushes up around it. This creates the dimpling on the thighs and buttocks commonly associated with cellulite.
Can Cellulite be Treated?
Nine out of 10 women have cellulite. You may have heard various claims from creams and other products that are supposed to improve cellulite, but those do not work because they don’t address the connective bands. Cellfina™ breaks those bands.
How Does The Cellfina™ System Work?
Cellfina™ is a non-surgical procedure that reduces the appearance of cellulite. This innovative, minimally invasive procedure targets the primary cause of cellulite, the connective bands are woven throughout the fat in the thighs and buttocks. Cellfina™ uses a microblade technique to break these connective bands and reduce the dimpling of cellulite.
Dr. Saltz and you begin by identifying the cellulite areas you would like to target. You’ll stand and Dr. Saltz will use a marker to identify your cellulite dimples. Next, your skin in that area is treated with topical anesthetic. The Cellfina™ handpiece is then placed on the target area. The system uses a suction stabilizer to pull the skin taut and stretch the cellulite-causing connective bands. The Cellfina™ handpiece then inserts a tiny needle to break those connective bands. These are broken in a fanning motion. Once the bands are released the skin bounces back upwards, as it is no longer pulled down in the various spots by the bands.
