Cellfina® is a non-surgical treatment that aims to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is a condition that makes the skin lumpy and dimpled. It tends to affect particular areas of the body, such as the:
It can show up in other areas too.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite occurs when fat deposits below the skin’s tissue push through. Many factors can contribute to cellulite, including:
- Menopause (due to reduction of estrogen)
- Prolonged sitting
- Inactive lifestyle
- High levels of carbohydrates
- Poor skin tone
Cellulite is a common condition that many women struggle with. Up to 90% of women will have cellulite in their lifetimes. Only around 10% of men, on the other hand, will notice it. For a lot of women, cellulite can lead to a drop in body confidence and self-esteem.
Cellfina offers an effective solution. Results are permanent, as Cellfina treats the underlying cause of cellulite. Clinical trials have tracked patients for up to three years, and further studies have demonstrated continued results at five years after a single treatment.
Let’s take a look at what treatment involves and how it can help you regain the skin you want.
Cellfina: An Overview
Cellfina is a minimally invasive procedure that helps restore a youthful appearance to your skin. It is an FDA-approved treatment for getting rid of cellulite on effected areas of the buttock and thighs, making the skin smooth again.
There are many benefits to the Cellfina technique:
- It provides long-lasting results.
- It’s FDA-approved.
- It’s minimally invasive.
- Only a single treatment is required in most cases.
- Patients see a significant, quick improvement.
- It’s safe.
- You’ll have only limited downtime.
Are You Eligible for Cellfina?
You’re a good candidate for Cellfina if you:
- Have cellulite that won’t respond to any other treatments, including creams, lotions, lasers, massages, and wraps
- Have minimal to no skin laxity (loose skin)
- Have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 35
- Have realistic expectations about the procedure – Cellfina can help with most cellulite but not rid you of it completely.
- Have cellulite dimples rather than waves – Dimples often resemble an orange peel.
- Are willing to lead a healthy lifestyle – Cellfina can treat existing cellulite, but it can’t stop new cellulite from forming. By exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet, you can prevent weight gain and new cellulite from emerging.
- Are on blood thinners
- Have an allergy or sensitivity to lidocaine or epinephrine
You may not be a good candidate for this type of cosmetic treatment if you want to get the procedure done because:
- Someone you know opted for Cellfina
- You heard that Cellfina is a popular procedure and so you think you need it
- Someone you know has pressured you into getting it
- You have skin laxity, stretch marks, or excess fat, which shouldn’t be confused with cellulite

Your Cellfina Consultation
Dr. Ver Halen is a highly experienced, Board-certified plastic surgeon. He understands that cellulite causes issues for many women, and it has been his lifelong mission to raise the confidence and self-esteem of every patient who visits him.
Dr. Ver Halen or his physician’s assistant, Elaine, will invite you in for a one-on-one consultation to discuss the Cellfina procedure with you. It’s important to fully understand what Cellfina involves before you decide to go ahead with the cosmetic treatment.
In your consultation, you’ll likely discuss the following topics:
- Risks of the procedure
- Your desired outcome and expectations
- Medical history, as well as any medical conditions
- Current use of prescription drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and/or recreational drugs
First, cellulite dimples are marked with a pen. You are then brought into the procedure, and your skin is thoroughly cleaned. Next, Dr. Ver Halen or Elaine apply a local numbing agent. Then the Cellfina device is used to release the bands that cause cellulite. This innovative, proprietary technology treats the primary structural cause of cellulite.
You may notice results in as little as three days after your Cellfina treatment, although most patients start noticing a difference after one week. The whole procedure is extremely quick, taking less than 90 minutes.
After the Cellfina procedure, patients can usually resume activities the same day. You may want to take it easy for 24 hours, as you could experience some bruising. This completely disappears for 90% of patients after 4 weeks.
Potential side effects, complications, and risks of this cellulite treatment include:
- Minor pain
