Finally, a cellulite treatment that works!
What Is Cellfina™?
The Cellfina™ System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least a year—longer than any other FDA-cleared treatment for cellulite.* Performed in the comfort in our Reno office by Dr. Dahan, this minimally invasive technique works by targeting and releasing the structural connective bands responsible for visible dimpling on the surface of the skin.
How Does Cellfina™ Work?
After a local numbing agent is administered, Dr. Dahan uses the Cellfina™ System to target the structural problems that cause cellulite. By releasing the fibrous bands under the dimpled areas, Cellfina reduces the appearance of cellulite in just one treatment session with results lasting for at least one year.*
Cellfina™ Cellulite Reduction Treatment
Cellfina cellulite reduction is:
- Single Treatment
- Minimally Invasive, Limited Downtime
How Long Does The Cellulite Reduction Procedure Take?
The in-office procedure is performed by Dr. Dahan, and takes approximately 45 minutes, depending on the individual patient and the number of areas being treated.
Within just three days after treatment, patients in the FDA-approved pivotal study reported feeling very satisfied with their results. At three months, 85 percent of patients were satisfied, and after one year, 94 percent were satisfied, surpassing patient satisfaction rates versus other leading cellulite treatments.

"I’m extremely pleased with my results. Dr Dahan and his staff are wonderful. Everyone is very professional and friendly and the surgery center staff were top notch. If you are considering any type of procedure go with Dr. Dahan. You will not be disappointed!" - Sally K.
How Long Do Cellfina™ Results Last?
Patients in the FDA-approved pivotal study showed significant improvement after just one treatment, with results lasting at least a year—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.*
Does Cellulite Reduction Require Surgery?
Cellfina does not involve a scalpel, operating room or general anesthesia. It relies on a minimally invasive, small needle-sized device to apply light, quick and repeated pressure on the cellulite-causing bands just beneath the skin to fray and finally fully release them.
Is Cellfina Right for Me?
Cellfina is a safe, highly effective procedure for both men and women looking to improve the appearance of cellulite. Treatment with Cellfina may not be right for patients who:
- Are pregnant.
- Have a proven allergy to epinephrine or lidocaine.
- Have uncontrolled diabetes.
- Have an active infection in the proposed treatment areas (buttocks or thighs).
- Have cancer or are undergoing cancer treatment.
- Suffer from varicose veins of any of the desired treatment areas.
Are There Any Risks Associated With Cellfina?
Cellfina is safe for most patients, however, there is a chance of temporary swelling, bruising, discomfort and numbness of the treatment areas. In rare cases, some patients may develop areas of hardness in the treatment areas as well.
Is There a Recovery Period After Having Cellfina?
Since Cellfina treatment is an outpatient procedure, there is little to no downtime time required. Most patients are able to perform normal activities within 48 hours and resume their exercise routines one to two weeks after treatment.
How Do I Prepare for Cellfina?
Preparing beforehand for your Cellfina treatment can help to ensure a safe and comfortable procedure and recovery. Before showing up to your appointment, it can be helpful to prepare for your treatment by doing the following:
- Consult with your primary doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter medications that may interfere with treatment
- Report any allergies
- Avoid shaving the treated area before your appointment
- Avoid blood-thinning medications
- Stop smoking at least two months before your appointment
- Arrange transportation with loved ones who can drive you to and from your surgery
- Prepare your home as a comfortable recovery space
- Begin implementing a balanced diet
- Begin a light exercise routine that will help with movement and weight management
- Maintain realistic expectations about your results
Will My Cellulite Return After My Cellfina Treatment?
Patients can notice a difference in the appearance of their skin after just one Cellfina treatment. However, it’s important to keep in mind that even after treatment, the appearance of cellulite may return under certain circumstances, such as significant weight gain. This does not mean the treated cellulite comes back, but rather, new fat and dimples may form as a result.
Because of this, we recommend patients commit to a balanced diet and lightly active lifestyle to be able to maintain a stable weight. Keeping a stable weight will help avoid alterations to your treatment results.
Can Cellfina Treatment Be Done More Than Once?
Yes. Cleared by the FDA, Cellfina is the only one-time procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of cellulite for up to three years. After this time period passes, it’s recommended that patients schedule a follow-up appointment to maintain their results.
