If you have cellulite, you know that getting rid of it seems nearly impossible. You can lose weight and exercise, and yet never see an improvement in skin texture. Strax Rejuvenation in Lauderhill, Florida, offers VelaShape®, an innovative, non-invasive treatment that combines several technologies to tackle the problem of cellulite. With just a few treatments, you’ll notice diminished appearance of cellulite, tighter skin, reduced fat, and an improved body contour.
Body contouring is used for people who are at or near their healthy body weight but who still need to improve skin tone and body shape. These patients usually have localized pockets of fat that they can’t get rid of no matter how diligent they are about limiting calories and following an exercise routine.
Body contouring can be achieved using a variety of non-invasive procedures that remove excess fat, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Technologies to eliminate fat include lasers, radio frequency energy, and cold techniques (cryolipolysis).
VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that’s designed to reduce circumferential fat, tighten skin, and diminish the appearance of cellulite. It can be used almost anywhere on the body, but it’s often used to treat the neck, arms, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and flanks (the sides of your body between the ribs and hips).
VelaShape combines 3 different technologies: infrared light, radio frequency energy, and vacuum. The infrared light heats fat cells, while radio frequency energy helps distribute the heat evenly through fat cells without harming the skin. Meanwhile, the vacuum gently lifts the area being treated so that fat cells are closer to the source of heat.
As VelaShape heats fat cells and the surrounding connective tissue, 2 things happen. Heat produced from the infrared light and radio frequency energies stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin. The new collagen and elastin will gradually replace old skin with fresh skin that’s stronger, more resilient, and has better tone and texture. The second result is that deep heat makes fat cells break down, then they’re naturally eliminated from the body.
Your doctor talks with you, explains the process, and makes sure you’re comfortable throughout the treatment. Many patients easily tolerate the procedure, describing it as similar to a warm, deep massage. You shouldn’t need any downtime to recover after the procedure.
Expect to have some mild redness in the treatment area, which should only last a few hours. The treatment usually requires 3 sessions. Over the course of your treatment, you should notice reduction in the appearance of cellulite and some areas of fat, resulting in a new body shape in the treated area.
