As a treatment for cellulite reduction, VelaShape® offers several advantages over alternative treatments. Since it’s a non-invasive treatment for body contouring, it doesn’t come with the risks associated with invasive surgery.
It can help you obtain a contoured, toned body, and you should be able to get results with just a few treatment sessions. However, some patients get noticeable results after a single treatment. VelaShape® can give your body a youthful appearance, and it can be used to treat a variety of areas. Most patients obtain gradual results, which appear over the course of a series of treatments.
Are You a Candidate for VelaShape®?
It’s important to realize that this procedure isn’t designed for weight loss, but it’s one of the side effects of the treatment. The VelaShape® treatment uses several technologies to contour your body, and it’s ideal for targeting the stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond well to dieting and exercise. An ideal candidate should have a BMI of 30 or less.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a problem that a lot of people face. The basic definition of cellulite is weight that isn’t distributed evenly. The abdomen and hips are two common areas where cellulite forms, and it’s also very common on the thighs.
For some people, it might even develop on the calves and breasts. When your skin’s connective tissue is strained, it causes the formation of cellulite. About 80 percent of women have some amount of cellulite, and a lot of men also have cellulite in problematic areas.
How VelaShape® Works
The VelaShape® treatment uses a mixture of radiofrequency waves, massages, suctioning and infrared light. During the procedure, infrared light energy and RF are used together with a mechanical suction massage.
The energy from the infrared light and radiofrequency waves produces heat and stimulates energy that is trapped within your skin’s adipocytes, which are also known as fat cells. The treatment causes the cells to shrink, and as a result of the shrinkage, the appearance of cellulite is reduced.
VelaShape® is very effective at smoothing and contouring the skin. While the heat from the procedure reduces the size of fat cells, mechanical rollers smooth and manipulate your skin. VelaShape® is capable of reducing the circumference of your thighs, so you could lose about an inch off of your thigh size.
If you decide to undergo this procedure, you have to realize that it takes time for the fat cells to shrink, but the results are worth the wait. Once you see your cellulite starting to fade away, you will love the way you look.
