Fat and cellulite are two partners in making people look less attractive than they are. They may persist regardless of the changes you make to your diet and exercise regimen, which in turn can make them frustrating issues. The worst part is that traditional surgical options for fat removal may not treat cellulite effectively.
The good news is that non-surgical treatments have advanced enough to be able to treat both cellulite and fat deposits with one technology. VelaShape® represents the most advanced non-surgical option for patients to date. It is beneficial to understand the issue of fatty spots and cellulite before exploring how VelaShape® can effectively treat these conditions without surgery.
What Causes Fatty Areas and Cellulite?
Troublesome fatty areas and cellulite are linked by the fact that both involve fat cells. Fatty areas are a side effect of large deposits of fat cells in one area. While this fat would normally be used, more accessible fatty areas or sources of energy are easier for the body to access rather than the fat cells in a given area. This is why fat tends to develop around the neck, torso, abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
Cellulite is caused by fat pressing outward on the skin. The rigid structures, such as veins and nerves, create the cottage cheese texture associated with cellulite. Weight loss tends to be ineffective in both conditions, as it primarily affects weight rather than fat in one area. Surgery tends to be unable to treat cellulite in a way that is feasible for the patient.
How Does VelaShape® Work?
VelaShape® is a state-of-the-art technique that combines infrared light, radio frequency waves and suction techniques into one. This introduces heat to fat cells while lowering the amount of heat required to make them work, which in turn decreases the negative effects on healthy cells while expanding the effects of VelaShape® on fat cells.
Once the fat cells become energized, they begin to vibrate. This affects the fat cells, which in turn allows the body’s lymphatic system to begin removing them. This occurs over a period of weeks to months. The advantage of this slow fat contouring is the fact that skin can adjust to the lack of underlying fat, which in turn allows for more effective body contouring and better results.
Why Does It Treat Cellulite and Unwanted Fat?
The reason VelaShape® is capable of treating both cellulite and unwanted fat revolves around the way the heat interacts with the fat cells. Unwanted cells are removed in a way that makes the effects of cellulite less visible while reshaping the contours of the body. This allows for an effective reduction of cellulite and undesirable fat cells on the bodies of most patients. Couple this with the lack of surgery, and VelaShape® becomes one of the more favorable treatments for these age-old problems.
