All about Velashape Treatment
More than 80% of women have cellulite and fat deposits, as a result, many women are searching for additional measures in order to get rid of these unwanted conditions. Cellulite is a cosmetic, localized skin condition that causes a dimpled appearance on the surface of the skin. The “orange peel” texture is a combination of expanding fat cells underneath the skin and fibrous bands that run to the surface of the skin.
Following the latest technology development, VelaShape III combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
VelaShape III is the first integrated non-invasive medical device approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) for volume and cellulite reduction. This treatment enables you to safely reach trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach and achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body, making you look and feel more youthful.
