Cellfina NYC Cellulite Treatment

The majority of women will develop cellulite at some point in their lives because of genetics, hormonal influences, and lifestyle choices. In fact, 85% of women between the ages of 24 and 54 have cellulite.

The Cellfina™ Cellulite Treatment Manhattan System at The NYC Dermatology and Laser Group is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment.

Gain a smooth and healthy look and the confidence to wear bathing suits and higher hemlines.

Patients in the clinical study showed significant improvement within three days after the treatment. Two years after treatment, 100 percent of Cellfina™ patients had noticeable improvement (based on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). Cellfina™ patients report high rates of satisfaction with their treatment results. At three months, 85 percent of patients were satisfied, at one year 94 percent were satisfied and after two years, 96 percent of patients were satisfied, surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.

How Does Cellfina™ Work?

cellfina processCellfina does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.

Fibrous bands called septae under 
the surface of the skin are the root 
cause of cellulite. When bands contract, they pull down on the skin creating a dimpling, tufting-like effect.

Cellfina fully releases these tethered bands, and similar to a rubber band under tension, once these bands release the skin bounces back to become smoother.

Cellfina Frequently Asked Questions

Cellfina™ is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. A straightforward solution to cellulite, Cellfina™, combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology, to produce precise, long-lasting results.
The Cellfina™ System treats the primary structural cause of cellulite—the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands (called septae) contract and pull down the skin, creating the puckering you see on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out.
Results can be seen in as little as three days. In the pivotal study, patient satisfaction was 85 percent at three months, 94 percent at one year and 96 percent at two years, surpassing the patient satisfaction rates of other leading cellulite treatments.
Cellfina™ does not involve an operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.

No serious adverse events were associated with Cellfina™ in the pivotal study. The most common side effects reported by patients in the FDA‑cleared pivotal study were soreness, tenderness and bruising. Just three days after treatment, patients rated their pain as minimal (2.7 on a scale of 0 to 10; 0=no pain, 10=extreme pain) and most (82 percent) felt pain only with touch or pressure to the area treated. This minimal pain improved quickly with time. More than 90 percent of patients had no bruising at four weeks.
There is limited downtime associated with Cellfina™. Some patients experience initial soreness and tenderness, but these side effects resolve quickly with time.
The in-office treatment takes less than an hour, depending on the number of dimples being treated and the patient’s individual needs.
