Cellulite has been the enemy of every woman since the dawn of time. There are many treatments that promise results, but deliver little. Now Dr. Dunkley of Envision Cosmetic Surgery has exactly what his patients need – a treatment known as Cellfina.
How does Cellfina work?
Skin is held in place by a number of fibrous bands that reside between the skin and the muscle layer. Particularly fibrous or short bands cause indentations seen as and indentation. Cellfina releases these bands allowing the skin to flatten. The device allows for very precise treatment of cellulite dimples.
How painful is the treatment?
The areas to be treated need to numbed in order for the treatment to take place in comfort. Small injections are done, followed by the insertion of a needle-sized instrument that severs the offending bands. Expect minimal discomfort during the initial numbing process.
How soon do I see the improvement?
The beauty of Cellfina is the results are immediate. There is some swelling and distortion of the tissue right after the treatments, but even the next day the changes are apparent.
What is the recovery like?
The recovery is relatively simple. Expect to have some bruising for a number of days or even a week. The areas treated will be sore but not overly painful. A compression garment is worn. Normal activity may be resumed the following day.
How long does it last?
Cellfina results are permanent. Once the bands that cause dumpling are cut the dimples go away. Initial study patients were followed for three years and maintained improvement throughout. Salt Lake City patients should expect should expect long-lasting results.
How long do the treatments take?
Cellfina treatments are a surgical procedure. The areas to be treated are first numbed and then the bands released. The numbing and subsequent release procedures take 45 minutes 60.
