How to get rid of cellulite?

Cellulite is the term used to describe the formation of dimples & lumps in the skin. Some other common names for cellulite include cottage-cheese skin, orange-peel skin, the mattress phenomenon, and hail damage. Both men and women can become affected by cellulite. Here are some facts about it:

  • It’s far more common in women, due to the different patterns of distributions of connective tissue, muscle, and fat.
  • Between 80-90% of women may develop cellulite at some or the other point in their lives.
  • It is estimated that almost 85% of women over the age of 16 years have cellulite.

Little surprise then that is a very high demand for cellulite treatment. Today, there are a number of different cellulite treatments available and Velashape II is one of the most popular ones.

About Velashape II

VelaShape II is a non-invasive treatment without surgery that has a proven track record in body sculpting, cellulite, and circumferential reduction. This treatment enables people to achieve dramatic results without significant discomfort or extensive downtime.

This modern, nonsurgical treatment is safe and very effective and shows quick results to get rid of cellulite. With almost a decade of clinical experience, this line of products has a far larger number of published studies compared to any other modern cellulite treatment technology.

Benefits of VelaShape II to get rid of cellulite

Cellulite treatment enables you to safely and comfortably achieve a contoured, well-shaped and toned body within a very short period of time. In fact, many people notice tangible results within four treatment sessions, improving their appearance and making them feel more youthful as well. Most patients can also see very consistent, cumulative results over the course of the treatment regime. Some of the expected benefits of cellulite treatment include:

  • Noticeable reduction in cellulite
  • Gradual smoothening of the surface of the skin
  • Noticeable reshaping of the areas that have been treated
  • Circumferential reduction

Which Areas Can Be Targeted With Velashape II?

The areas that could be targeted in this skin care treatment include the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, flank, arms. It’s important to keep in mind that VelaShape isn’t a weight loss treatment. It is a combination of various technologies that help contour your body, and target trouble spots that exercise and diet alone can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape II patient is an individual with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 30. Ask your doctor whether this treatment is suitable for you.

About Photorejuvenation

When it comes to skin care, photorejuvenation is another skin care treatment that is effective in improving the overall appearance of the skin. Intense pulsed light is used in this treatment and it can effectively transform blotchy, sun-damaged, red skin into a smooth, radiant complexion. It is helpful in reducing and treating various common skin problems including

  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Liver spots
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation

This treatment takes only an hour. There is minimal discomfort and it delivers outstanding results. IPL photorejuvenation effectively targets the skin’s deeper layers. This is why most estheticians recommend it be carried out in conjunction with superficial treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion.

These treatments are typically performed in a series of 3-6 treatments and are scheduled at one-month intervals. While you will notice evident changes the very first session, multiple treatments will be required to experience the full benefits. The severity of the skin condition and a person’s individual response to the treatment decides how quickly the person will notice results.
