Stubborn fat is more than just a product of an inactive lifestyle. Even if you regularly hit the gym, there are still fat cells that just won’t go away.
VelaShape® is a non-invasive method of body contouring. It offers effective cellulite reduction and can give you a contoured, toned body.
You should be able to see noticeable results after a series of treatment sessions. This treatment has the ability to make you look and feel younger.
It’s quite common for women to avoid liposuction because they don’t want the side effects associated with an invasive surgery. Unlike liposuction, VelaShape® doesn’t require a significant amount of downtime.
This procedure can be effective for treating your abdomen, flanks, thighs and buttocks. These are areas that are notorious for developing cellulite, and they can all be effectively treated with VelaShape®.
A series of treatments will deliver cumulative results, and you can observe small changes after each treatment session. It’s important to remember that VelaShape® isn’t a weight loss treatment.
To contour your body, this treatment involves the use of different technologies. It’s beneficial because it can reach areas of your body that can’t be changed with proper diet and exercise. The procedure is particularly effective for reducing cellulite in trouble spots.
If you have a BMI under 30, then you could be a great candidate for this treatment option. It’s also important to have the right type of cellulite. You can get more information by scheduling a consultation at our office.
What Results Does It Offer?
The results that you can expect from VelaShape® depend on your unique body composition. For example, the density of your fat cells can have a significant impact on your results.
According to some of the clinical studies, VelaShape® can deliver an abdomen circumferential reduction of about one inch, and it might be able to reduce your hip circumference by 1.5 inches.
How Does It Work?
If you’re considering VelaShape®, then you should understand how it works. To reduce cellulite within your body, the procedure uses a combination of technologies.
With mechanical massage, vacuum suction, infrared light and radiofrequency, this treatment is capable of smoothing cellulite and contouring fat. When the device is pressed against your skin, it begins to massage the treatment area.
As the vacuum technology is massaging the treatment area, infrared light and radiofrequency energy penetrate fat cells. Once the energy makes contact with a fat cell, it perforates the membrane. When this happens, the cell releases its fatty acids and water. The loss of fluids from the cell causes it to shrink.
The technologies used for VelaShape® can increase collagen production and tighten skin. Since it is a non-invasive treatment option, there is no downtime, and you can avoid the risks associated with invasive liposuction.
