A Real, Non-Surgical Fix for Cellulite
Ready to hit the beaches of Sydney? Don’t let cellulite hold you back! There’s a safe, effective, non-surgical fix that will banish cellulite in minutes. While cellulite creams and scrubs don’t have any real science standing behind them, there is something that has been proven effective: VelaShape.
What is VelaShape?
VelaShape is a non-surgical solution that treats cellulite on your stomach, arms, back, flanks, thighs, butt, and knees. It tones and firms your skin while reducing cellulite and fat.
VelaShape is often done in conjunction with CoolSculpting, the only government-approved body contouring treatment in the world. This creates an all-in-one body contouring treatment to remove fatty deposits and banish cellulite.
Unlike liposuction, which can actually increase cellulite, there’s no downtime with VelaShape. At the Medispa Institute, Dr Turner uses VelaShape III to tackle stubborn areas of fat.
What causes cellulite?
Before we dig into the technology of VelaShape, let’s talk for a minute about cellulite. Far too often, people think of cellulite as side effect of having too much fat. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. You can be thin and still have cellulite. Likewise, you can be overweight and have no cellulite. Losing weight isn’t a magic fix for cellulite. Genetics, hormones, and skin quality are what really causes cellulite.
How does VelaShape work?
VelaShape III actually combines three unique technologies. First of all, there’s Infrared Light (IR) that is able to heat tissue up to 3mm thick. Next, there is Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF), which heats tissue up to 15mm thick. Finally, there is the vacuum, which creates a controlled delivery of energy.
By combining of IR, RF, and a vacuum, VelaShape is able to create a safe and controlled delivery of heat that will heat up the fat and loosen the fibrous bands. The VelaShape III allows for deep heat penetration with fast treatment.
What’s a VelaShape treatment like?
After hearing that technology works with heat, people always ask if it hurts. The good news is that VelaShape doesn’t hurt. The machine uses a cooling tip to prevent skin damage and the temperature is constantly monitored to ensure that it doesn’t overheat.
A VelaShape treatment lasts around 30 minutes. Your skin will feel a bit warm afterward and might be red temporarily but you won’t feel any pain. Most women need three treatments to get their desired results so you’ll want to plan on multiple treatments.
Is VelaShape treatment right for me?
It’s important to remember that VelaShape is not a weight loss toll. To see effective results, you need to have a BMI of less than 30. When you visit the Sydney Medispa Institute in Dee Why, Dr Turner will assess your cellulite.
Cellulite actually comes in three stages. Women with stage one and two cellulite will see the best results. Here’s an overview of what that means:
Stage One: There’s no dimpling when you stand up or lie down but you see cellulite when you pinch your skin.
Stage Two: You can see cellulite when you are standing up but not when you’re lying down.
Stage Three: You can see cellulite when you are standing up and when you’re lying down.
