Our Body Contouring treatment is a non-invasive treatment for body contouring, and it can also be used to reduce cellulite. It is not a weight loss treatment, however; in fact, the ideal client will be at or very close to their healthy body weight. This treatment can be used on many parts of the body.
Vela Body Contouring combines several technologies: suction, infrared light and bipolar radio frequency energy. The suction, which is accompanied by rollers, draws the target area closer to the infrared and radio frequency energy. The rollers massage the area while the infrared and radio frequency energy melt the fat cells that the body’s excretory system then expels. The treatment also stimulates the collagen fibers, so they contract and pull the skin tighter, thus, reduces both cellulite and the circumference of the treatment site. The client is slimmer and their skin is tauter without the dimpling effect of cellulite.
The procedure itself only takes about thirty minutes. Some clients may see results after only three sessions. But, this varies from patient to patient. The number of treatments required depends on the area you’d like to treat.
During your initial consultation, your technicians will tell you how many treatments you’ll need. The location and skin condition are two major factors in this determination. Once this is established, you’ll have a treatment plan in place and a lot to look forward to!
Cellulite tends to threaten the same areas in all of us. But, the common areas that are treated with VelaShape are:
Since VelaShape is non-invasive, there won’t be a lot of trauma to the body. During the treatment, you may feel waves of warmth as the connective tissues and fat cells are heated. But, that’s the extent of it.
In the end, there may be redness and minor bruising, but this fades away quite quickly. There’s no recovery time or even downtime required. When the area clears, you’re well on your way to smoother skin.
At this time, VelaShape technology only shrinks fat cells; it doesn’t destroy them completely. So, the best way to prohibit them from regrouping is to pair your procedure with an appropriate weight loss plan.
The good news is, the results will be so appealing that they’ll motivate you to endeavor toward a new lifestyle. Still, most patients see results that last for several months even without maintenance treatments.
When paired with maintenance treatments and a healthy lifestyle, your battle against cellulite can greatly reduce, making this simple procedure entirely worth it in the end.
