Being a woman is both completely wonderful and completely frustrating at the same time. Not only do women get to do things like pregnancy and childbirth but they also have to do things like pregnancy and childbirth. But just like anything, no matter how you look at it there are pros and cons to being a woman. One of the things that many women aren’t too happy about is cellulite.
Cellulite causes a dimpling of skin on the thighs, stomach, buttocks, or arms and can resemble cottage cheese. And although weight can sometimes play a factor in cellulite, it’ primarily genetic which means that even the skinniest, supermodels can still have cellulite. Here at Dr. Benjamin Dunkley’s office, we use a treatment called Cellfina to help patients get rid of their cellulite and gain back their confidence.
How Does Cellfina Work?
Your skin consists of several layers and is held in place by a number of fibrous bands that are between the muscle and the skin. When these bands become shortened or fibrous, it causes the skin to dimple and cellulite to form. Cellfina releases these bands and flattens them— getting rid of cellulite dimples in the process.
How Long Does It Last For?
One of the unique benefits of Cellfina is that results are permanent. And although things like hormones and weight fluctuations play a part in how long your results last for, a recent three-year study showed that patients maintained their results.
When Will I See Results?
Unlike other cellulite treatments that take a while for patients to see results, results from Cellfina are immediate. So, if you have a big summer vacation planned and you want to get rid of your cellulite beforehand, you won’t have to wait around to see your results.
Having cellulite isn’t exactly any woman’s idea of a good time. As a condition that affects nearly 90 percent of women, if you have cellulite you know you’re not alone.
