How Can VelaShape® Help Reduce My Cellulite?
If you suffer from cellulite, you are not alone. This lumpy, dimpled skin affects women of all ages, and contrary to popular belief, women of all shapes and sizes as well. In fact, it is estimated that nearly 80 percent of women age 20 and older are affected by it. Many women with cellulite feel a lack of confidence about their bodies and may be ashamed to wear short skirts, shorts, and bathing suits. While exercise can tone your leg muscles, it has no effect on the appearance of cellulite. VelaShape® is not only used for cellulite, but also for toning.
What Are the Benefits of VelaShape®?
The radio frequency used in VelaShape® is elos technology, which offers better control in both the amount of heat that is used as well as the ability to target specific areas with greater precision. The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime. The result of VelaShape® is:
- Smoothing of skin’s surface with a reduction in cellulite
- Circumferential reduction, with shaping of the treated area
How Many VelaShape® Treatments Do I Need?
After just one session by one of our aestheticians, your skin will already feel tighter, but multiple sessions are required in order to achieve optimal results. The surgeons at Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach typically recommend six to ten sessions over the course of six weeks. Upon completion of your treatment sessions, your surgeon may still recommend treatments every so often for maintenance. One VelaShape® session can last anywhere from about 20-40 minutes. During the procedure, an application device is moved over the areas you wish to target. The radio frequencies that are emitted through this device heats and stimulates deep layers of tissue, while the suction massage rollers smooth out your skin.
What is Recovery Like from VelaShape®?
Because VelaShape® is non-surgical, no incision is required, no recovery time is necessary, and you will be able to return to work and your other regular daily activities immediately after each session. Many patients describe the VelaShape® procedure in West Palm Beach as a comfortable one, comparing the sensation to that of a deep tissue massage. The procedure itself is painless. Though you may experience slight redness or bruising afterward, these side effects are quite common and will subside on their own in just a few days. Any pain or discomfort you may feel following the procedure can easily be managed through over-the-counter pain medications.
How Much Does VelaShape® Cost?
To determine the cost of your VelaShape® treatment, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment.
