Cellfina is now offered in San Francisco through the Appearance Care Center at The Maas Clinic.
Cellfina is a breakthrough device that has refined the technique of subcision to treat cellulite. Compared to previous cellulite treatment options, Cellfina produces a more consistent and uniform look.
Cellulite is a herniation or bulging of the fat around the thigh, buttocks and lower area of the body that creates an uneven or dimpled appearance to the skin.
In between these little bulges of fat are fibrous bands that extend from the deeper tissues of the skin, which hold the skin down and creates the dimpling look people associate with cellulite.
Cellfina works by going underneath the skin and dividing the little fiber bands that hold the skin down, releasing it, and leading to a smoother surface.
It should also be noted that it does not treat the protruding fat, but by releasing the bands, it improves the look and smoothness of the skin.
Cellfina is slowly becoming the “go-to” surgical procedure for treating cellulite. It can be done on an outpatient basis, and is a relatively minor surgery.

What is Cellfina™?
Cellfina™ is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years.
How does Cellfina™ work?
Cellfina™ treats the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks, the primary cause of cellullite. When these bands are pulled down, they create the puckering appearance commonly associated with cellulite. Cellfina™ helps release this tension, allowing the skin to naturally smooth itself out.
How soon can I see improvements with Cellfina™?
Results can be seen in just a few days.
How long do Cellfina™ results last?
Cellfina™ is clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years, the longest duration of any cellulite treatment cleared by the FDA.
Does Cellfina™ hurt?
Cellfina™ is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a small, needle-sized device to treat the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the surface of the skin.
How long does Cellfina™ take?
One treatment of Cellfina™ takes about 45 minutes, which is enough to see an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
Is there downtime with Cellfina™?
There is minimal downtime with Cellfina™, and some patients may experience soreness and tenderness, which will improve with time.
