Are you struggling with cellulite? Do you want to smooth out your skin’s surface and visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite? VelaShape™ is an excellent body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. VelaShape™ is the first FDA-cleared, non-invasive and virtually painless medical solution for improving cellulite. Effective on all skin types and tones, the VelaShape™ procedure safely and comfortably tones, contours and slims the body with little to no downtime.*
Dr. Normand Miller advises his patients that VelaShape™ is not a weight loss treatment but it uses a combination of technologies to reduce those troublesome dimples (cellulite) that are diet and exercise resistant.
WHAT IS CELLULITE AND WHAT CAUSES THE APPEARANCE OF CELLULITE?
If you have cellulite, you know what it looks like: lumpy, dimpled, uneven skin that appears on your thighs, hips, buttocks and stomach. Cellulite affects the vast majority of women, usually appearing after puberty. Regardless of weight or size, cellulite affects women after puberty. As many women know, you can lessen the appearance of cellulite by losing weight, but you can’t get rid of it completely. Aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite, but there are three structural problems that cause cellulite:
1. The connective tissue bands beneath your skin surrounding fat cells become tight and inflexible.
2. Enlarged pockets of fat trapped by the rigid bands push up against the skin.
3. Thin skin means that you can see the resulting dimpling effect even more easily.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR VELASHAPE™
VelaShape™ is a good treatment for many women but tends to yield more noticeable and lasting results on women who maintain a healthy diet, are reasonably close to their goal weight, and do not have extremely lax skin. VelaShape™ can be used on all women, no matter ethnicity or skin color. Dr. Miller and his team will determine if you are a good candidate for VelaShape™ during your consultation.
WHAT AREAS MAY BE TREATED?
VelaShape™ can be used for cellulite treatment and circumferential reduction of the thighs, buttocks, love handles and abdomen.
HOW DOES VELASHAPE™ WORK?
The unique combination of bi-polar radiofrequency (RF), infrared light energy, plus mechanical massage and suction, results in a noticeable reduction in the circumference and appearance of cellulite. This technology increases fat metabolism, improves lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the actual size of the fat cells and fat chambers. Not only should you see some reshaping of the treated area, but you should also gradually notice a smoother skin surface.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I NOTICE A CHANGE IN THE APPEARANCE OF MY CELLULITE?
*All before and after photo results vary and are not guaranteed.
A gradual improvement of the treated area will be seen over the course of four to six treatments, each scheduled one week apart. The degree of response to the VelaShape™ treatment and the number of sessions required may vary. Results in circumference and cellulite reduction will be most apparent six to eight weeks following the final treatment session.*
HOW DO I IMPROVE AND MAINTAIN VELASHAPE™ RESULTS?
Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. As with any body shaping procedure, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
IS VELASHAPE™ SAFE?
The FDA cleared the device as safe and effective for all skin types and colors.
DOES THE VELASHAPE™ TREATMENT HURT?
Most patients describe the treatment as a deep, warm massage.* The settings are adjusted to each patient’s comfort level.
