Reducing the Appearance of Cellulite with VelaShape
Tuesday November 4th, 2014
Cellulite is not a serious health problem, but it can be a serious problem for your level of confidence and self-esteem. The dimpled, lumpy flesh can plague women of all ages, and it can make wearing shorter skirts, shorts or swimsuit an embarrassing undertaking. Instead of hiding cellulite under layers of clothes, you can turn to advanced treatment methods from Dr. Lewis J. Obi, with one of the most advanced being VelaShape.
VelaShape Explained: What It Is, What It Does
VelaShape is a device that combines the power of radiofrequency and light energy with vacuum and mechanical massage capabilities to reduce the appearance of cellulite, smooth the skin’s surface and reshape the area being treated. It’s the first device of its kind to be approved by the FDA, and its four elements specifically consist of:
- Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF)
- Infrared Light Energy
- Mechanical Massage
The combination of bi-polar radiofrequency and infrared light energy is a breakthrough known as elos technology. It produces a controllable heat source that can easily target specific areas and is safe for all skin types. The vacuum and specialized mechanical massage rollers enhance the process by smoothing out the skin’s surface, readying the skin for the most efficient delivery of the heat energy.
As heat is applied to the targeted fatty tissues, it increases the metabolism of stored energy, boosts lymphatic drainage and shrinks the size of the fat cells and chambers. The end result is threefold:
- A gradual smoothing of the skin’s surface
- A noticeable reduction in cellulite
- A circumferential reduction and reshaping of the treated area
Areas that were once dimpled with cellulite will appear firmer, smoother and sleeker with a leaner, more contoured shape. VelaShape can be used on the thighs for circumferential reduction, and on thighs, abdomen, buttocks and love handles for cellulite treatment.
Improvements in the skin’s appearance are typically apparent after the first session, although more than one session is generally required for optimal overall results. A reduction in cellulite and circumference are generally most noticeable about six to eight weeks after your final treatment session.
