If you are bothered by the appearance of dimpled, lumpy skin that resembles the appearance of cottage cheese, you’re not alone. Cellulite is a cosmetic problem that affects both men and women of all ages and body types. Fortunately, Dr. Donald Hause now offers a solution at his Sacramento practice. Cellfina is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment that smooths out cellulite on the thighs and buttocks.

What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite occurs when underlying fat deposits push through the bands of fibrous tissue found between the muscles and skin. The lumps of fat pushing through cause the overlying skin to appear dimpled and uneven. Cellulite can occur in various body areas, most frequently on the thighs and buttocks.
While there are many creams and other non-surgical treatments on the market that claim to deliver remarkable results, the majority of them do not live up to their claims. Effective treatment for cellulite must treat the fibrous tissues that cause the fat to move upward against the skin.
How Cellfina Can Help
The Cellfina System improves the appearance of cellulite by treating the root of the problem. A small needle-like device is inserted into the skin, which releases the bands of fibrous tissue that are pulling down the skin. Once the bands are released, the skin is able to bounce back and smooth itself out.
Treatment with Cellfina is quick and can be completed in as little as one hour at Dr. Hause’s office. A local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment areas. There is little downtime with Cellfina. Most patients are able to return to work the next day and experience minor side effects — including bruising and soreness — for up to 10 to 14 days.
Results can be seen in as little as three days. According to the makers of Cellfina, patients in a pivotal study showed significant improvement in cellulite shortly after treatment, with results lasting at least three years.
