Understanding the Velashape® III Cellulite Reduction Treatment: Cellulite is an extremely common skin condition. The mechanism behind cellulite isn’t entirely understood, but it seems to be about the interaction between fat cells and other cells. Cellulite causes a dimpled or cottage cheese textured appearance to the skin. The leading theory is that cellulite forms when fat cells push up against fibrous connective tissue. Cellulite occurs mostly in biological women, because of the way fat is distributed in their bodies.
Treating Cellulite with Velashape®
Although cellulite isn’t a harmful or painful condition, many people do seek to treat it. Cellulite has a lumpy appearance that many people find unpleasant. People who have it often want to eliminate the dimpled areas on their thighs and backsides in favor of a smoother, more toned and firmer appearance. Young women sometimes feel frustrated because working out doesn’t affect cellulite. There are a variety of treatment options for cellulite, and they have various levels of effectiveness.
Some people treat their cellulite at home with creams and tools like foam rolling. Ultimately, the goal here is to break up adhesions in the fascia. Others use massage or ultrasound. In recent years, laser treatments for cellulite developed rapidly. There’s been a lot of recent progress on this front. As a result, one of the newest and most effective cellulite treatments has been developed by Candela Medical is the Velashape® III.
How It All Works
The Velashape® III is a medical device which harnesses the combined power of infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum to make changes in people’s skin. This works by reaching a specifically targeted temperature within the skin, causing fibroblasts in the dermis to promote new collagen production and increase in the metabolism of fat.
Treatments with this system tighten the skin without ever breaking the surface. Over the sessions, cellulite and stretch marks start to disappear. All of this happens with no pain or irritation. There’s also no downtime for recovery after one of these treatments. With these innovative devices, cellulite reduction is not only possible, it’s also surprisingly comfortable.
Best of all, these cellulite reduction treatments are fully customizable. As expected, these machines are adjustable and measures the patient’s impedance to ensure consistent energy delivery, reducing the number of non-responders. These light treatments can address any level of cellulite in adults of any age. However, patients who use this system see serious results in just a few treatment sessions.
Is The Velashape® III Right For Me?
Cellulite treatment areas could be on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.All-season treatment.
This machine can be used on all skin types and even on the most sensitive skin. However, the ideal VelaShape® patient is someone with a BMI of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2.
