Zap that Cellulite: FAQ’s About Cellfina
- Posted on: Jun 30 2017
Other than that time of the month, nothing can plague a woman’s life more than cellulite. And as something that affects even the most athletic women, Serena Williams included, cellulite doesn’t discriminate. And although diet and exercise may approve the appearance of your cellulite, they certainly won’t get rid of it. Luckily, with a treatment called Cellfina, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley at envision Surgery can help you get rid of that cellulite for good. Read on to learn more.
Is It Painful?
Most of our patients only experience pain while the numbing shot is being administered. As far as the rest of the surgery, you shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort.
Is It Effective?
Now that you know Cellfina isn’t painful, you may be wondering how effective it is. And the answer is, “very.” Cellfina is a technology that is created to break up the fibrous bands that reside between your skin and muscle— which cause cellulite. Once these are broken up, you should experience smoother, less dimpled skin.
Is It Invasive?
Cellfina is a non-invasive procedure that involves several small injections. Once the injections have been administered, a small needle-sized instrument will be inserted into the skin to break up the bands that are causing the cellulite.
Is Recovery Long?
Because Cellfina is non-invasive, the recovery is smooth and straightforward. Patients who get Cellfina, experience bruising that lasts up to a week and a bit of tenderness around the targeted area. Additionally, patients will be required to wear a compression garment for the first few days following the procedure to help reduce swelling and speed up healing.
Cellulite may be your worst enemy, but Cellfina can change that right away. If you would like to learn more about how Cellfina can help you get rid of your cellulite, contact Dr. Benjamin Dunkley today to schedule an appointment.
