Look your best with help from the Cellfina system at Thrive Med Spa

For many women, instead of seeing smooth, silky skin when they look at themselves, they see dimples and bumps caused by cellulite. Cellulite is a cosmetic skin condition that affects 90 percent of women and 10 percent of men.

It often appears as dimples, puckers or dents and forms when the fibrous bands that connect your skin with the underlying muscle tightens irregularly. When they tighten, it causes the natural layer of fat to bulge up, forming cellulite.

The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but many experts believe that genetics, weight loss, a sedentary or stressful lifestyle, and hormones or hormonal contraceptives could all be factors. Despite popular belief, weight loss, changing your diet and performing certain exercises are unable to reduce your cellulite.

Thrive Med Spa offers Cellfina, which is an innovative and minimally invasive cellulite treatment. It is a small hand-held device that can release the connective bands under your skin that cause cellulite. This precise process works by targeting the connective bands under the skin as opposed to attempting external treatment. The Cellfina system has been proven to improve the appearance of cellulite, especially on the thighs and buttocks. The Cellfina system utilizes a process called Subcision®. It works by targeting the fibrous bands of connective tissue that pull down the skin, causing dimples.

Cellulite is not a superficial surface issue. Unlike other treatments, it can get to the root of the problem. Subcision® is also used to treat wrinkles and scars. Cellfina will not require significant downtime after the procedure, and many patients are able to drive themselves home immediately after and return to their daily activities almost immediately.
