Cellulite Reduction, Skin Tightening/Firming VellaShapeIII
VelaShape III™ is the only non-surgical device recently approved by the FDA for both body shaping and cellulite reduction. It helps reduce the appearance of the unsightly cellulite that affects more than 80% of women over the age of 20, while simultaneously tightening skin laxity. LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic finds VelaShape III™ to be a perfect pairing with the fat reduction capabilities of BodyFX, enhancing the body contours of those “problem areas” through skin tightening and smoothing of underlying structural skin tissues. It is also particularly effective after losing weight, or childbirth, where skin may be loose and drooping, allowing you to enjoy the body you once had pre-children or have worked so hard to achieve with weight loss and exercise.
Cellulite Is Not Selective
Cellulite, a structural skin change that occurs in most females after reaching puberty, is not selective. It affects men and women regardless of whether they are thin or overweight. In some cases, cellulite may be more noticeable on a thinner frame. Cellulite can develop on people of all ages, although it tends to become more visible due to thinning of the skin as we age. The skin structure changes over time, losing thickness – resulting in skin dimpling and lumpiness that occurs mainly in the hip region, upper thighs, derriere, upper arms, and abdomen. It is caused, in technical terms, by the rupture of subcutaneous fat within the fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange-peel looking appearance.
Let VelaShape III™ Do the Work
The Vela Product line is the only non-invasive body-shaping product to combine four different technologies. Using patented Circumferential Reduction® techniques and elós™ technology, VelaShape III™ combines Bi-Polar RF radio frequency waves, an infrared laser, and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed suctioning and massage rollers to effectively reduce the size of fat cells and re-contour the skin’s surface. The combination of the technologies causes deep heating of the connective tissue, including the fibrous bands. This promotes an increase in collagen bonding and boosts the metabolism of the cells, resulting in a localized reduction in skin laxity and volume. The additional mechanical tissue manipulation of the Vela causes an immediate increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, both essential components for healthy skin structure.
VelaShape III™ Works on All Skin Types
It works on all skin types and is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of cellulite in the stomach, abdomen, love handles, upper arms, hips, thighs, and buttocks with no downtime. Clients typically see a marked improvement in a few treatment sessions. The result is a smoother, more regular appearance and an overall reduction in the size of the treated area.
The VelaShape III™ treatments are not limited by age and all clients seeking cellulite reduction and /or circumference reduction can be treated. For optimized results, these clients should be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and manage their weight. If you have chosen to experience UltraShape treatments, or wish to specifically target only areas of skin laxity and/or cellulite, schedule a consultation with Jean Chapman, M.D. She will work with you to make the final determination if you are a candidate for the VelaShape III treatment.
