Cellfina for Cellulite Reduction in Irvine & Orange County

celfina-logo_with-content-_-transparentCellulite is a persistent condition in which the skin appears to be bumpy and “dimply” due to woven bands of subcutaneous fat.  These underlying fat deposits are most noticeable along the buttocks and thighs, with some clients seeing cellulite on their legs and arms.  While a large majority of people suffer from cellulite (it’s estimated that 98% of women have this condition), it can still be a source for embarrassment for many patients.

*Cellfina® is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment that has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite for up to two years.  These results are the longest of any cellulite treatment on the market, making the Cellfina® System the superior way to treat stubborn cellulite.

Cellfina® works by directly treating the cause of cellulite – the interwoven bands of fat within the thighs and buttocks. Cellfina® uses a minimally invasive needle treatment to release pressure from these bands, causing the skin to bounce back and smooth out.

Clients will see results in as little as three days; what’s more, results last for up to two years*.  Satisfaction ratings for Cellfina® are unlike any other cellulite treatment; after two years, 96 percent of patients were satisfied with their results from Cellfina®.

A Cellfina® session takes about 45 minutes to perform.  There are no significant side effects from Cellfina®; most clients only report soreness, tenderness, and bruising.  These side effects usually fade anywhere between three days to a month after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions


How soon will I see improvements?

Results can be seen in as little as three days. In the pivotal study, patient satisfaction was 85 percent at three months, 94 percent at one year and 96 percent at two years, surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.*

Does Cellfina® involve cutting?

Cellfina® does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.

How long do results last?

Patients in the pivotal study showed significant improvement shortly after the treatment, with results lasting at least two years—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.*

Are there any side effects?

No serious adverse events were associated with Cellfina® in the pivotal study*. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA‑cleared pivotal study were soreness, tenderness and bruising. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal (2.7 on a scale of 0 to 10; 0=no pain, 10=extreme pain) and most (82 percent) felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. This minimal pain improved quickly with time. More than 90 percent of patients had no bruising at four weeks.

Will I need to take time off?

There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina®. Some patients experience initial soreness and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time.

Will I have to repeat this procedure?

At this time, there are 5-year data that still shows over 90% satisfaction so it appears that Cellfina is a one-time procedure. The only caveat is that gaining weight could result in the appearance of new dimples.
