Many women over the age of 20 have some degree of cellulite, concentrated fat cells that leave a lumping effect on skin, often referred to as “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” skin. Sad labels, but yes, cellulite is often most visible around the thighs, hips, and buttocks of women. Women who are not overweight or relatively young may also suffer from cellulite problem.
There is cure: VelaShape is a non-surgical medical device for body reshaping and cellulite treatment. VelaShape treats deeper tissue as well as the upper layers of the skin. VelaShape helps reduce fat layers and diminish the appearance of cellulite.
VelaShape combines radio-frequency and infrared-light energy with suction and mechanical massage to stimulate collagen production and help metabolize the fatty deposits that cause dimpling. By using a gentle suction (ensuring contact with the skin and tissue) it heats up fat cells, breaking them apart, and pushing them to lymph nodes for the body to dispose of fat naturally. The treatment feels like an intense slightly warm massage. VelaShape uses suction to smooth the skin during treatment, so the radio frequency is delivered evenly. The method reduces the number of fat cells and treats the intra-fat structure itself, so the treated area becomes smoother and more elastic. Based on feedback from our patients and studies across the United States, all patients report improvement on the appearance of cellulite, and they also report the circumference reduction of the thighs (1-2 inches reduction in most patients). Our specialist will help you determine what best cellulite treatment will produce the best results for your body. You can schedule your free consultation by calling (360) 260-7029 .
Patients report that the treatment typically feels like a massage with minor pinching sensation. Sometimes mild bruising can occur.
Number of treatments varies for each patient. A series of 6 treatments is usually recommended for more effective results. Each treatment takes about 45 minutes. There is typically no downtime after VelaShape.
VelaShape does not only do massage and suction (common anti-cellulite machines offer just that – only temporary improvement of the appearance of cellulite), but VelaShape also uses infrared light and radio frequencies to heat the fat cells which allows the machine to disperse and remove them. The results are greater and more permanent.
ThermaCool Cellulite treatment helps improve the appearance of cellulite in a single treatment without surgery, injections, or downtime. It’s relatively inexpensive and permanent. Thermage is the greatest achievement in cosmetic and reconstructive medicine today. It’s a non-surgical method for skin tightening, resurfacing, and cellulite treatment. THERMAGE uses radiofrequency energy to create a heating effect in the deep skin layer (dermis). With a special heat delivery tip, collagen-contracting heat is delivered deeply into the sub-dermal and fatty layers of the skin. The gentle heating tightens existing collagen and stimulates production of new collagen. This causes the skin to tighten and get firm while the new collagen creates a more evenly elastic foundation. Blood flow in the tissues is increased, further helping to reduce the lumpy appearance of cellulite.
Tightening is caused by immediate collagen contraction followed by gradual collagen tightening. THERMAGE is unique because it treats only problematic and yields predictable and effective results. Below you can read the detailed outline of the procedure:
The THERMAGE procedure typically lasts 45 minutes for facial treatments, and 90 minutes for body treatments. Clients are able to see results after the first treatment. Results are visible within 24 hours after the procedure. But this is only the beginning. During the next 2-6 months, your skin will continue changing and rejuvenate. This is a natural synthesis of collagen tissues. Your renewed skin is tightened, lifted, and body lines become better and better. The results achieved after THERMAGE treatment at our center last years. Thermage is usually recommended to patients with mild to moderate laxity, and is usually not recommended to patients over 65 years old.
