Even if we follow a healthy lifestyle, diet, and exercise habits, we may start experiencing several changes in our bodies as we age. One such change will be cellulite or excess fat deposits in the abdomen and buttocks, called cellulitis. At Gold Coast Medspa, we offer the VelaShape Cellulite Reduction procedure to reduce cellulite, tighten skin and improve body contours
VelaShape® is an FDA-approved, non-invasive body contouring treatment that reduces the appearance of cellulite and addresses thigh, buttock, and abdominal fat.
It combines four different technologies:
- Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF)
- Infrared Light energies
- Negative pressure (vacuum) and
- Tissue manipulation (mechanical massage)
VelaShape can also help tighten sagging skin around delicate body parts like the face and neck, leaving the patients with smoother and healthier skin and discrete transformations to the body. Unlike traditional liposuction or surgical procedures, which require downtime and recovery periods, VelaShape offers quick results with no downtime necessary.
- VelaShape To Address Cellulite
Cellulite tends to be a universal problem that plagues people of all shapes and sizes, regardless of age or gender. This dimpled appearance most often appears on areas like the thighs, buttocks, stomach, and arms due to fat accumulation beneath the skin's surface. Luckily, VelaShape offers a non-invasive solution for those looking to tone and smooth these common trouble spots. The targeted areas treated with this innovative technology include the legs (thighs and calves), abdomen (belly fat), flanks (love handles), back bra line area (back rolls), upper arms, underarms as well as chin and neck region.
The complete results of Latisse treatment are visible after 12-16 weeks. It is important to continue applying Latisse every day to maintain its results. If the Latisse application is discontinued, the eyelashes will slowly return to their earlier appearance.
The procedure works by delivering the infrared and RF energies to the targeted area of the body using a hand-held VelaShape device that consists of rollers. When the technician passes the wand over the skin, vacuum technology is used to suction against the skin, and rollers are used to knead the area. Radio-frequency energy and infrared light are allowed to infiltrate the fat cells and temporarily pierce their membranes, releasing fatty acids, glycerol, and water from the fat cells into the body, thus shrinking it. The process also stimulates collagen production, thus reducing the appearance of fine lines and age spots.
LVelaShape treatment is a non-invasive procedure with minimal side effects and downtime. For most patients, the treatment feels like a painless, warm, deep-tissue massage. After the procedure, the treated area may appear pink, or the patient may feel warm for a short time. This flushed appearance or feeling of warmth is due to the heat produced during the treatment and will subside soon. Since the procedure results in lymphatic drainage, the patient may also experience an increase in urination, as this is the body's mechanism of naturally expelling the absorbed fat cells.
