VelaShape Cellulite Reduction Is a Non-Invasive Treatment That Contours And Slims The Body And Improves The Appearance Of Cellulite. VelaShape Cellulite Reduction Is Available At Our Fort Lauderdale & Coconut Creek Offices. Christine Zullo, PA-C With Natura Dermatology – Coconut Creek, Explains The Benefits Of VelaShape Below.
Your shorts and bikinis are packed in the bottom of the drawer. And you are wearing a T-shirt at the beach to cover the imperfections. Why do you do this? Because you want to hide those frustrating imperfections often known as cellulite. Cellulite is the appearance of dimpled skin commonly on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. It is the result of unevenness of fatty deposits underneath the skin. It is not a serious medical condition but many people are self-conscious about it and dislike the appearance. So what is the best treatment option? Non-invasive VelaShape cellulite reduction.
VelaShape cellulite reduction is the best non-invasive way to reduce unwanted dimples and fatty deposits. It is the first FDA-approved device for cellulite reduction and body contouring. No other treatment out in the market compares. This procedure sculpts and tones areas of the body, most commonly the legs, buttocks, abdomen, and arms.
VelaShape cellulite reduction is fairly quick, taking approximately 30 to 45 minutes per area. When you come in for your consultation, your provider will assess the areas to determine if you are a candidate for the treatment. Measurements and photos are taken at baseline for comparison after the treatment is completed. Typically VelaShape cellulite reduction consists of at least six treatments performed one week apart initially. Afterwards, a treatment is done every three to four months to maintain the initial effects.
Once the treatment area is determined, the area is marked and you are placed in a comfortable position. The provider will use a handheld device that has bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light energy to heat and stretch out the fatty tissue. This helps to increase circulation while promoting lymphatic drainage and minimizing dimpling. The procedure is not painful, however there are times where it can feel a bit uncomfortable. Many patients say VelaShape cellulite reduction treatments feel like a warm deep tissue massage. The vacuum on the device can be adjusted to meet your comfort level, but even at the lowest level, certain areas, such as the inner thighs, are more sensitive than others.
The goal with VelaShape cellulite reduction is to heat the fatty tissue to about 40 to 42 degrees Celsius. Each treatment area has two complete passes performed to reach the endpoint temperature. Once endpoint is reached, you may feel an extreme warm sensation that typically only lasts a few moments then subsides. After the treatment you can return to your normal every day activities. There is no true downtime with VelaShape! Typically you begin to notice results after the third or fourth treatment, and continue to improve throughout the series. One treatment weekly until desired benefits are achieved, then you decrease to three to four months for maintenance.
Of course, VelaShape cellulite reduction is not a cure-all procedure, but you will definitely notice a reduction and redefinition in your trouble areas long enough to keep you feeling confident in your body. Who wouldn’t want to feel comfortable in their own skin? VelaShape cellulite reduction is great for both men and women, so call and make your appointment now, and take that step to a newer more confident body!
