Cellulite is a cosmetic concern, especially for women. In fact, 85% of all females over the age of 20 have some form of cellulite. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to prevent or diminish cellulite on your own. The fibrous tissue builds under the skin, mostly around the stomach, hips, and thighs, and creates a lumpy, dimpled appearance. Known for offering the latest advancements in laser treatments and minimally invasive procedures, Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX is delighted to offer Cellfina. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Cellfina can correct the appearance of cellulite with smoother-looking, lasting results that have been clinically proven to last 3 years. This is the longest FDA clearance ever received by the FDA. By targeting the fibrous fatty tissue found in the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs, Cellfina releases the tissue and smoothes the treatment area in less than a week. Years ago, cellulite was nearly impossible to eliminate, but now you can enjoy exciting, noticeable results from your Cellfina treatments at Novo Med Spa. Cellfina can only be administered by a licensed physician. Call our Frisco, TX office today to learn more.
Cellfina provides great results with little risk for most men and women at Novo Med Spa. However, you may not qualify if you have diabetes, varicose veins, an infection, or loose skin. Those taking blood thinners or who are pregnant should not have Cellfina treatments. Ideal candidates for Cellfina:
- Are at a healthy weight
- Have cellulite on their legs, hips, or stomach
- Have toned skin
- Do not use tobacco products
- Live a healthy lifestyle
Before your Cellfina procedure, Dr. Lewis will ask you to stand while identifying each of your treatment areas with a marker. Next, a local anesthesia will be administered to allow the patient to be as comfortable as possible during the treatment. Using suction to stabilize and keep the treatment area tight, a microblade will be inserted beneath the skin using the Cellfina device. The fibrous, connective bands that are woven together under the skin that cause cellulite will be separated, allowing the affected area to relax. This leaves behind a smoother surface on the top layer of skin. The Cellfina procedure can generally be completed in less than an hour.
In most circumstances, you will be able to return to your normal activities the day after your procedure. However, we highly recommend you refrain from vigorous exercise for a few days to allow the treatment area the opportunity to heal. Side effects of the procedure are tenderness, swelling, and bruising. These side effects are not typically severe and fade in the days after your procedure. Following your Cellfina treatment, you might see tangible results within just three days with peak results appearing in the months that follow. Individuals who maintain a healthy weight will see long-lasting results, but the procedure can be safely repeated as needed.
Cellfina has helped thousands of individuals to decrease cellulite from their problem areas and increase their confidence. When you are embarrassed by unwanted cellulite on various areas of your body but do not want to resort to a surgical procedure to receive that smooth look you dream of, contact Novo Med Spa to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lewis. Learn how Cellfina can reduce the appearance of cellulite to provide a youthful glow that complements your beautiful body.
