Cellfina®

Cellfina® in Houston, TX with Dr. Courtney El-Zokm

There are some excellent treatment options available for women who want to convert their cellulite into a firmer, more toned physique. Weight loss, diet, and exercise are all fantastic ways to help improve the appearance of cellulite, and when done in combination with the right treatment, the results can be amazing.

We want our patients to understand that cellulite is not their fault! Cellulite is a genetic condition that is nothing more than the subdermal layer of your skin tethering to connective tissues in your body. You can’t possibly control your genetics, so there is nothing to feel ashamed or embarrassed about. We are here for you and want you to know that we have an incredible technology that can help you alleviate this condition. 

Cellfina® is a simple, FDA-cleared cellulite treatment that targets the formation of cellulite and can produce results that are visible in a very short period of time.  In some cases, the benefits of Cellfina can be enjoyed for a number of years after the procedure.

If you would like to learn more about cellulite treatments in Houston, TX, Dr. Courtney El-Zokm would love to meet with you to discuss how he will be able to address your particular cellulite issues. Cellfina® is an excellent cellulite reduction option for those in Houston, Texas.

Cellfina Addresses the Underlying Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite forms when connective tissue bands pull the skin downward, pressing it against the fat layer, which causes the uneven, bumpy characteristics of cellulite. No matter what your body type is, cellulite can be an issue.  While losing fat is great, sometimes it is necessary to take additional measures to improve the body’s appearance, which is where Cellfina comes in. 

Cellfina works underneath the skin to treat cellulite at its source. It releases the connective tissue bands that pull the skin. When the pressure is released, the bands no longer pull the skin downward, which then smooths the appearance of the treated areas.

The Cellfina Treatment: What to Expect

We want you to feel comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. Dr. Courtney begins by numbing the skin with a topical anesthetic. Once it begins working, we use the specialized Cellfina® device to break apart the tissue bands underneath the skin. Tiny incisions are needed so that the microblade can access the tissue bands. These incisions are needle-sized and do not leave visible scarring on the skin.

Since we use a local anesthetic, you shouldn’t feel any pain. The procedure usually takes about an hour. After treatment, you can head home to rest.

Recovery After Cellfina

You’ll be back to your normal life quickly after treatment. Recovery usually progresses rapidly, and before you know it, you should notice the results of your Cellfina treatment.

  • No downtime is required, but we recommend taking it easy for at least 24 hours after treatment.
  • Tenderness is commonly reported but fades quickly. Dr. Courtney will give you simple tips for increasing your comfort during the recovery process and can provide pain medications if needed.
  • The most common side effects during recovery are bruising, tenderness, and swelling. These can last for up to four weeks but often resolve much sooner.

We’ll give you detailed care instructions and are available if you have questions or concerns during the recovery process.
