Cellulite is an inflammation of the subcutaneous tissue, which gives the skin a lumpy appearance. It has several causes, and several can be present at once, including family history, excessive calorie intake, water retention.
Nearly 85% of women have cellulite, and there is currently great demand for effective treatments. It was previously difficult to treat, but now the appearance of cellulite can be improved spectacularly, using Cellfina™, the only treatment approved by the FDA in the US, which eliminates sponginess in just one session.
The promising results offered by Cellfina™ are now available in Belgium, and Claris Clinic is the only clinic currently offering the treatment. This technique combines a simple approach and patented technology to provide sustained and targeted results, and is minimally invasive, with no scarring and no risk to the patient. Just one session is often enough to treat all affected areas.
After identifying the areas to be treated, the doctor administers a local anaesthetic and then inserts a needle into the upper layers of the skin, using a small device with special safety features.
This technique releases the fibrous connective bands that are the main cause of the spongy appearance of cellulite. Cellfina™ precisely targets these fibrous bands, which means that the skin is smoother within 45-60 minutes following the treatment.
Cellfina™ causes very little pain. After the session, there will be swelling for around two days, and visible bruising for one to two weeks. A girdle should be worn for around ten days.
After Cellfina™ there are very few complications: There is no scarring, there is little pain resulting from the session, and there is no need to stay at home to recover.
Sponginess disappears and the skin is visibly smoother.
Initial results are visible from day 3, and continued improvements are seen in the weeks and months following treatment. These results persist for several years.
Cellfina™ has very high patient satisfaction scores: 85% are satisfied after three months, 94% after one year and 96% after two years.
