VelaShape® is one of the most popular body contouring and cellulite reduction treatments on the market. It’s non-invasive while it reduces your cellulite. Typically, the dramatic results are provided completely free of significant discomfort or recovery time.
What to Know About VelaShape®
Many people mistakenly believe that VelaShape® is a weight loss treatment. It’s not. The goal of VelaShape® is to work with a healthy diet and exercise, allowing you to contour the portions of your body that aren’t reachable by a healthy lifestyle alone.
VelaShape® will work best on people whose BMI is less than 30. It also works best on patients with mild to moderate cellulite. VelaShape® has been approved by the FDA to temporarily reduce cellulite’s appearance and temporarily reduce the circumferences of the thigh and abdomen.
The Technology Behind the Treatment
VelaShape®’s unique technology combines vacuum, energy from bi-polar radio frequencies, and infrared light. It heats the fat cells, the underlying collagen fibers, and the connective tissue surrounding the cells. This efficient vacuum and heating stimulates your body into growing improved elastin and collagen.
Collagen and elastin are the proteins responsible for keeping your skin tight and smooth. With better collagen production, you’ll see a localized tightening of the skin and reduction in your body volume. The skin texture and structure will show overall improvements.
When you undergo a VelaShape® cellulite reduction treatment, you shouldn’t expect weight loss. What you can expect is to see your skin’s surface become gradually smoother, and the cellulite to be noticeably reduced.
This is one of the best treatments on the market for cellulite reduction, and it won’t have any lengthy recovery. For more information about what VelaShape® can do for you, contact us today at FamWell MD in Jacksonville and book a consultation. We look forward to working with you!
