Many people suffer from cellulite on parts of their body, including hips, thighs, arms, buttocks and abdomen. Cellulite can be described as the “orange peel effect,” meaning the dimpling and uneven appearance that shows up in problem areas. It’s painless, but some who suffer from cellulite find it very bothersome. Unfortunately there isn’t a treatment out there that can get rid of cellulite forever, but there are ways to soften and improve problem areas.
If you’re looking for a treatment to reduce cellulite, but don’t want to turn to a surgical procedure like liposuction, VelaShape is a great alternative. This non-invasive, FDA-cleared body contouring treatment uses a combination of heat, suction, rolling, infrared light and radio frequency to tighten and tone problem areas. There’s no downtime or significant discomfort. VelaShape is ideal for those looking to blast away the last bit of fat and target areas plagued by cellulite that diet and exercise just can’t seem to reach.
VelaShape works by deeply heating fat cells and their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. The combination of the technologies used in the treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin, resulting in tighter skin, a reduction of body volume and an overall improvement in the skin’s structure and texture.
There’s nothing painful about a VelaShape treatment. Each treatment feels like a warm, deep tissue massage. It’s normal to experience a warm sensation in the treated areas for a few hours after treatment. Treatment areas may even be pink for a few hours after treatment.
A series of VelaShape treatments can noticeably improve the appearance of cellulite and gives the treated areas the look of firmer, tighter skin. Clients typically notice dramatic results after receiving three to four treatments, with each treatment set one week apart. Some may even see a difference after just one treatment. For best results, a series of VelaShape treatments is recommended.
