Before and After
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is a structural skin change that occurs in most post-pubertal females, whether they are thin or overweight. It presents itself as a modification of skin morphology, evident by skin dimpling, and nodularity that occurs mainly in women on the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen. This is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance. Cellulite can occur in women of all ages and tends to become more visible with age. Over time, the skin loses its thickness and thereby enhances the visibility of the unsightly cellulite bumps.
Who would be an ideal candidate for VelaShape treatment?
The VelaShape treatment is recommended for normal to overweight patients who suffer from unsightly cellulite in the pelvic region, around the hips, abdomen, or lower limbs. For optimized results, these patients should also be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The treating clinician has the final determination for choosing the best candidates for the treatment.
What parts of the body can be treated with VelaShape?
The VelaShape treatment can be applied to any area of the body that may need contouring: thighs, abdomen, arms, flanks, and more. Wherever cellulite is bothersome for a patient, the Vela line of devices offers an effective solution to help solve the problem
How quickly will I notice a change?
Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment – with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother and firmer. Results in circumference reduction are seen from the first to second session, and cellulite improvements are noticed in as few as four sessions.
What sort of results can I expect?
In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5 – 3 inches.
Is treatment safe?
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short- or long-term health effects.
Does it hurt?
Most patients find VelaShape comfortable – like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post-treatment. Your skin may also appear pink for several hours.
Are results permanent?
Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
