Cellfina: Cellulite clearance for up to 3 years
Award winning AlluraDerm MD Med Spa is among the first practices in the world and the only one in New Mexico exclusively selected to offer this exciting, new cellulite treatment!
We are honored to offer the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to clear the underlying causes of cellulite for up to 3 years—the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment.

Cellfina can dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs in just one treatment. This affordable and convenient procedure results in smooth, healthy looking skin that helps restore the confidence to show off those legs rather than hiding underneath concealing clothes all year long.
How does Cellfina treat Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands, or septae, connect the skin to underlying tissue at select points, creating “chambers” of fat cells. Because these tethering fibrous tissue or septae are in the superficial layer of fat, liposuction and weight loss which affects the layer of fat below the superficial fascia (not to be confused with visceral fat) more than the superficial layer is not usually an effective treatment of cellulite.
Cellfina treats cellulite by precisely cutting the fibrous bands using a suction cup to lift the skin so that a small motorized blade the size of a needle can be inserted under the skin. After the bands are cut, the dimples are released leading to a smoother contour.
AlluraDerm uses Cellfina to treat the CAUSE of cellulite
The key to treating the cause of cellulite is to release the fibrous bands that is pulling down the skin to form the dimples. When used correctly, Cellfina enables our physicians Dr. Lam and Dr. Mancha to release the bands at a precise and consistent depth of 6 or 8mm below the skin at the superficial fat layer. Liposuction on the other hand removes fat from the deeper reserve fat layer and is unable to treat the superficial fibrous bands causing the dimples.
