How It Works
Cellfina works by treating the structural cause of cellulite. People who suffer from cellulite will notice a dimpled and lumpy appearance to their skin. This is caused because the connective bands under the skin become compromised by fat cells pushing through the area and surrounding muscle. Cellulite is more common in women than in men because of the difference in the way that muscle, connective tissue, and fat cells are distributed.
Imagine the connective bands in your body are like a piece of rubber. The rubber can become lumped and molded together, but once the pressure is released, it bounces back to its original straight and smooth state. The same happens to your skin, once the pressure is released it returns to its normal appearance. This is all done in under an hour right at Jiva Med Spa, with no surgery or anesthesia required.
Cellfina works with a small needle-like device, and since there is no cutting the recovery time afterward is extremely short. After the procedure, you can go about your daily life but you may want to take it easy and limit physical activity for the first 24 hours.
With any procedure, there runs the risk of side effects. In a FDA study, the most common side effect of Cellfina was bruising and soreness at the procedure site that may last up to four weeks. Compared to the risks associated with other treatment options, especially those including surgery the minor bruising and soreness is a much easier choice when weighing the possible side effects when selecting the best treatment option for you.

The system treats the primary structural cause of cellulite – the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks.

Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.
How soon will I see improvements?
Results can be seen in as little as three days. In the pivotal study, patient satisfaction was 85% at three months, 94% at one year and 96% still at two years.
