What is Cellfina?
Cellfina is a unique and minimally invasive treatment for Cellulite. Cellfina is certified by the American Food and Drug Administration as well as the European CE Agency which prove the safety of the treatment method.
What happens during the procedure?
First the target area is discussed and marked with the help of the patient. Afterwards, using the Cellfina technique a local anesthetic is used to numb the area. The procedure can begin: using a suction attachment, the defined area is lifted to expose the connective tissue fibers which are then severed with the use of a fine needle. The skin begins to smoothen and the results are immediately visible. In general the procedure lasts around 45 to 90 minutes.
How does Cellfina work?
During the procedure the connective tissue fibers, which are responsible for the development of the dimples, are severed. Since the fibers are not able to rebuild these connections the treatment is permanent and must never be repeated.
What results can I expect?
The results are evident shortly after the completion of the procedure. Studies show, that 96 percent of patients (even after 3 years) are still happy with their results. A result that is far higher than any other method that claims to reduce or eliminate cellulite.
Is the procedure painful?
Since only the target area is numbed using a local anesthetic the procedure is not painful. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being very painful), most patients rate the procedure between 1 and 3.
Will I need downtime?
The procedure is an outpatient procedure performed in day clinics, which means that immediately after the procedure you can return home and back to your day to day duties. The target area may be slightly red and swollen but it should recede in the following days. For this reason you should not resume any sport activities until after 2 or 3 days. You may experience light discomfort when sitting on the treated area the day after the procedure.
How much does the Cellfina procedure cost?
The cost for the procedure is dependent on the number of dimples and the corresponding duration of the treatment. Your investment should range between 2,900 Euro- 3,900 Euro – depending on the number of dimples.

What are the causes of cellulite?
There are four main causes of cellulite…
1.Skin – although the strength and resistance of the skin is determined by our genes, proper nutrition, exercise and other environmental influences play a major factor – sport and a proper diet can have a positive influence on cellulite.
2. Blood circulation – weak blood circulation can cause an increase in dimples – regular exercise is important. This is the reason that compresses can help temporarily.
3. Fat cells – Large fat cells close to the surface of the skin can lead to the formation of more dimples. This explains why many slender people have less cellulite. The dissolution and removal of fat can often improve the overall appearance of the skin.
4. Connective tissue strands – This is what sets Cellfina apart. In women these connective tissue strands run from top to bottom. If properly severed there is an immediate change in the appearance of cellulite. In men these strands run in a 45 degree crisscross pattern which explains why men do not have cellulite.
