Now you can get into shape and feel confident again without the need for surgery or other invasive treatment. Summer is fast approaching and swimsuit season will soon begin. Velashape III can help you to feel sexy and comfortable in a bikini. The treatment is non- surgical, non-invasive and highly effective against the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. It uses infrared light technology and radiofrequency energy to effectively massage, tighten and smooth problem areas in the skin.
How does the technology work
Velashape III is used to stimulate just below the skin and release the pockets of energy trapped just below the skin’s surface in the skins fat cells, the adipocytes. The treatment uses infrared technology and radiofrequency to generate heat that is used to stimulate and disperse the fat. This causes the fat cells to gradually shrink and smooth and tighten the skin’s surface. These fat cells are the cause of cellulite and by shrinking them the appearance of cellulite is greatly reduced and the appearance of your skin is dramatically improved.
The heat reduces the pockets of fat and at the same time the mechanical vacuum massage rollers are hard at work, smoothing out the skin’s imperfections and minimising the uneven surface of the skin. The overall effect is that the dimpling effect of cellulite is reduced. The area is smoother and in the case of the leg area, the leg is actually smaller in circumference than when the treatment started, thanks to the reduction of the fat pockets.
What is the treatment like
There is no pain, or discomfort associated with Velashape III, in fact the procedure can be compared to a day at the spa. The relaxation and the sensation of the treatment are similar to a deep tissue massage. The treatment can be expected to last anywhere from twenty minutes to an hour depending on the severity of the problem and the number of treatments necessary for it to be effective and the size of the area being treated.
- The first step is the gentle tug or pull on the skin as the pulsed vacuummechanism manipulates the skin to make it pliant and ready for the next step in the treatment.
- The light energy from the radiofrequency is next and it will produce a warming effect as it generates the heat necessary to agitate and stimulate the fat cells and shrink the cells.
Post treatment results
There is no down time and no recovery time is needed as you can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment. Velashape III works just below the skin’s surface and the warmth it generates will linger for several hours even after the treatment is finished. Some patients may experience some swelling or redness in the area treated and a few have reported slight bruising. These effects are temporary and will quickly disappear.
A healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy and nutritious diet and exercise will help you to take advantage of your results and keep off cellulite and unwanted fat. All cellulite treatments aretemporary and Velashape III is no different. In order to maintain the results, further visits and treatments may be necessary.
