Cellulite is a buildup of fat inside each of the fat cells. When the cells become filled they begin to pucker at the top and create an uneven and bumpy surface that can be noticeable in shorts and bathing suits.
Creams and massages are useless treatments when trying to actually get rid of cellulite because neither will remove the fat. VelaShape is an effective and non-surgical answer to the embarrassing areas on the body that many patients cannot treat on their own with diet and exercise.
VelaShape is a body contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency and infrared light energy to smooth the skin’s surface to noticeably reduce cellulite and circumference of the treated area. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. The radiofrequency and infrared light energy precisely heats and treats the skin to reduce or shrink the size of the fat cells and chambers. This decreases the amount of space the body has for storing fat, resulting in a smooth body contouring effect so it will not only decrease cellulite, but also your size. The device has been reported by the FDA to effectively melt fat under the skin, break up the fibrous bands under the skin, and stimulate collagen production. Results are progressive and for most last between 6 to 12 months. In clinical studies, 85 percent of the areas treated showed a circumferential reduction in thighs for at least 1 centimeter.
