The ugly dimpling that accompanies cellulite is tough on the self-esteem of body-conscious women. Some go to great extremes to remove cellulite, trying everything from costly creams to cosmetic surgery. Now, however, there is a state-of-the-art body contouring procedure that is non-surgical, non-invasive and delivers lasting results.
VelaSmooth is a clinically proven, FDA approved technique for targeting cellulite virtually anywhere on the body—thighs, arms, abdomen, neck, or buttocks. It is safe for all skin types and colors. Working gently, VelaSmooth tightens and smoothes skin, leaving it rejuvenated. Although no weight loss is involved, VelaSmooth literally melts inches off the targeted areas of your body.
VelaSmooth is a comfortable procedure requiring neither sedation nor anesthesia. It works using a combination of light energy and electric current in the form of radio frequency. The skin is first heated with the light. The heat penetrates up to ½ inch beneath the surface of the skin, targeting the fat cells in the immediate treatment area. After the skin is warmed, gentle suction is used to help the radio frequency reach all the way down into the deeply buried fat deposits. It stimulates metabolic action, shrinking fat cells. The end result is firmer, more radiant skin.
The procedure is not uncomfortable at all, in fact quite the opposite is true. Some describe the heat as soothing. Afterward, it feels as if you have experienced a thorough massage or a good, hard workout! Also, as VelaSmooth is non-invasive and requires no anesthesia, there is no downtime following treatment.
To achieve beautiful, lasting results, VelaSmooth requires multiple treatments. The treatments each take between 45 minutes to one hour. Two treatments per week are suggested and should be continued for six to eight weeks. Results are not immediately apparent, but usually patients begin to see an improvement in elasticity and appearance around the third week of treatment. After the initial series of treatments is complete, it is necessary to have additional VelaSmooth treatments every month or two to maintain the results. If maintenance treatments are neglected, the results fade after a couple of months.
Whether we like to admit it or not, looks do matter, and even slender women can be plagued by cellulite that dimples their thighs or arms. VelaSmooth is an ideal option for healthy women hoping to rid themselves of unattractive cellulite. The results are dramatic.
