    Additional Information (provided by Merz)

    Procedure Description:
    Cellfina treats the primary structural cause of cellulite -- the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. These tight bands pull down the skin, creating the puckering seen on the surface of the skin. Similar to a rubber band under tension, once released, the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out. The minimally invasive, in-office procedure takes approximately 45 minutes, depending on the patient and number of areas being treated.
     
    Typical Clinical Applications:
    Cellfina is intended for long-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thigh areas of adult females.
     
    Best Patient Candidates:
    Intended for long-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thigh areas of adult females.

    U.S. Cellfina Procedure Cost & Price Range:
    Cellfina cost & pricing is determined by the area treated, the best way to secure an accurate quote is to consult with a physician.
     
    Average Number of Treatments Needed:
    One session.
