Having some cellulite is very common among women at the age of 20 and above. This condition is associated with fat and it will be well discussed in this article. There are a variety of treatments on the market aimed at treating cellulite. Two of the most advanced cellulite treatments in the world today are Cellfina and Aveli. Questions most people ask is, how does Cellfina before and after looks. This article will explore everything about Cellfina

What is Cellfina? 

Cellfina is an FDA-approved cellulite treatment that was developed in 2015 and has proven results. It’s been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. It is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure with a high level of patient satisfaction in student conducted by Cellfina.

How Does Cellulite Form?

Cellulite is associated with fat, and while there is some relationship between the two, neither is a guarantee of the other. People with excess fat may have smooth skin, while people with a skinnier silhouette still frequently deal with the cosmetic skin condition.

As noted above, the problem lies in the connective bands that connect the uppermost layers of skin to the tissue beneath. For many women, expanding fat cells push the skin outward. In areas where there is a connective cord, the surrounding fat can bulge around it, leaving an indentation or pucker where a small patch of skin is held back, unable to move outward like the surrounding expanse. This can and does happen to the vast majority of women, a process that may also be related to estrogen levels and circulation issues. About 10 percent of men may experience cellulite of their own.

Cellfina is available to men and women alike seeking an effective cellulite treatment.

What to expect during Cellfina treatment

There are several steps in the Cellfina treatment procedure. On average, it will take about an hour for every 25 cellulite dimples that are treated.

Here’s what you can expect during a Cellfina treatment:

  1. Your dimples will be marked with a skin marker and a numbing fluid will be injected into your skin.
  2. The Cellfina handheld device will be applied to each dimple, and a microneedle will break up the dimple.
  3. The dimples will be pulled up and into the device and will allow your skin to stabilize.
  4. The device will release the dimple to the selected depth on your skin.
  5. The doctor will then move on to the next cellulite dimple.
