Cellfina Overview: Everything You Need to Know About the Cellulite Solution

Would you like to get rid of cellulite, and have your skin looking smooth and clear for the long term? Here at Laser Skin Care Center we offer a treatment known as Cellfina that does just that. In this quick Cellfina overview we tell you everything you need to know about this innovative cellulite solution.

What is Cellfina?
Cellfina is a minimally invasive FDA-approved medical procedure for cellulite. Unlike other cellulite solutions that tackle the skin condition from the outside, Cellfina is clinically proven to treat the root cause of cellulite.

How does it work?
To appreciate how Cellfina works, you first have to understand what cellulite is, and what causes it. Cellulitecomes about when the fat below the surface of the skin pushes up against the connective bands that are linked to the underlying tissue. As the bands pull down on the skin, dimpling occurs.

Cellfina treatment involves the use of a small device that is introduced below the surface of the skin, to break up the connective bands, and release the fat layer. The skin will then snap back into position, and smooth itself out.

How many treatments do I need?
It typically takes one Cellfina treatment to gain optimal results.

Are there any side-effects
Cellfina is a very safe procedure, but there are some mild side-effects such as swelling and bruising. These generally resolve within a few days.

When can I see results?
Results can usually be seen after about 3 days.

How long do the results last?
Cellfina results last up to 1 year.

How many sessions of CoolSculpting are needed to see results?

CoolSculpting was officially launched in 2010, and since then thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that is fast, effective, and achieves measureable results that last. It gets rid of fat cells by freezing them away,and requires little or no downtime. Are you wondering how many sessions of CoolSculpting are needed to see results? Let’s take a look.

Facts about CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment that freezes fat cells, using a system of controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis. It is indicated for use on the flanks and abdomen.

How it works
The CoolSculpting applicator suctions in the skin and fat in the targeted area. The cold crystallizes the fat cells, as they are more susceptible to cold than the surrounding tissues. The cells are then broken down, and ultimately eliminated by the body over the following months.

How many sessions of CoolSculpting do you need to see results?
It typically takes 1-2 sessions to achieve optimal outcomes with CoolSculpting, but that is not always the case. Some people may require more treatments based on their individual needs. The number of sessions needed will be influenced by the size of the fatty areas being contoured, and the extent of the improvement desired.

After each session, patients generally experience between 15-30% reduction in the fat bulge that was treated. Results can be seen after 3-4 weeks, but it may take up to 4 months to see the full results.
