If you have cellulite, loose skin, or areas of your body that you wish were a little tighter or firmer, VelaShape might be able to help. This non-invasive, easy, state-of-the-art treatment can shave off unwanted fat and tame cellulite with absolutely no downtime at all. At Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek in Denver, Colorado, we understand how having the body you’ve always wanted can boost your confidence and help you live your best life.
How Does This Treatment Tighten Loose Skin?
VelaShape treatment is specifically designed to tighten up your loose skin, which is why it’s an effective treatment for areas that tend to get a little wobbly with age, like our arms or abdomens. It can also help contour areas of the body, leaving you with a sleeker, more streamlined shape. Some people opt to get this treatment done after weight loss therapies or treatments, and it works well as part of a mommy makeover package.
What Is VelaShape?
VelaShape is an anon-invasive treatment designed to reduce the circumference of different parts of your body, tighten skin, and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Many people find that they look and feel younger after just one of these treatments. This treatment is fully FDA-approved and safe, making it one of the most popular new treatments on the market.
How Does It Work?
The secret is in this treatment’s radiofrequency waves, which break down fat and help patients to lose water weight. This is especially effective for cellulite. During the VelaShape treatment, the technician will apply a rolling device directly on the skin, allowing the radiofrequency waves to penetrate the targeted area and help you get a more svelte look almost immediately.
What To Expect
Many people find this treatment to be very comfortable and even mimic a hot stone massage. Overall, it should be a far more relaxing and positive experience than other more invasive treatments. This treatment is also fairly quick, depending upon the area that you want to be treated. Most people don’t need to be in their session for longer than an hour. Most of the time, people need three sessions to fully see their results, although many patients say that they can see an improvement after just one or two sessions.
Non-Invasive, Easy Treatment
Since it’s non-invasive, most people need absolutely no downtime after getting one of these treatments done. Talk to us about your specific goals, and we will put together a treatment plan for you that works for your lifestyle, desired shape, and budget. Since each person is different, we are committed to crafting individual treatments that help you to look and feel your best.
Where Are the Best Places to Get This Treatment?
Although there are several places that you can get this Velashape treatment done on your body, most people prefer to concentrate the treatments on a few key areas. The popularity of these areas is likely due to the fact that they tend to change most as our bodies age, and they also can attract the most cellulite. If you would like to get this treatment done on a different area of your body, please let us know.
Those who want a more contoured and shapely abdomen should consider this treatment. It works to whittle down waists and give you more of an hourglass figure, as well as help you to look great in a swimsuit. The abdomen is one of the most popular regions where people get this treatment done.
So-called batwing arms are the bane of many of our existences, but we don’t need to live with them if we don’t want to. VelaShape helps to reduce the circumference of the arms, tightening up the skin and getting rid of the looseness that makes arms look flabby. Bye-bye, bat wings.
People who get this treatment done in their buttocks often report that they have a higher and firmer looking butt that has noticeably less cellulite. It’s a great way to get a more youthful and rounder butt.
Many people want to get their love handles treated, so they look better in clothes and simply feel better overall. This treatment can help to shrink love handles, reducing any loose skin, and tightening up the area around the midsection.
Why Do We Get Cellulite?
Cellulite is something that happens to just about everyone as a result of aging. It doesn’t matter what body type you have. Basically, it happens when the skin gets thinner, and the fat underneath the top layers of your dermis starts to show through. If the women in your family have cellulite, you are more likely to get it, and women usually get more cellulite than men do.
Although cellulite is very common, it’s still something that many people want to get rid of, which is why VelaShape is such a popular treatment. You can mask the look of cellulite through a few easy, quick, and painless sessions.
Combat Cellulite Between Treatments
Although we can’t really do much to get rid of our cellulite, especially if we are genetically predisposed to it, there are a few ways to combat cellulite in between treatments. Make sure that you incorporate these habits and activities into your life, and your skin will thank you.
Water is one of the best ways for us to boost our beauty. Staying hydrated can help with a whole host of beauty woes. It helps our skin to look dewy and fresh, keeps our complexion bright, helps our circulation, and minimizes the look of cellulite. Since hydration plumps the skin, it can help to mask the appearance of cellulite.
Stimulate that skin with regular massages. In addition to being stress-busting activities, massages can help with circulation and even slough off old skin cells. If regular massages don’t fit into your schedule, consider getting an at-home massage tool or simply dry brushing the areas where you see cellulite on your body. Over time, most people see a marked improvement.
Exfoliating helps you to get rid of old skin cells and prompt new ones, which can help to reduce the look of lines and cellulite in your skin. You can buy exfoliating treatments at virtually any beauty supply shop, or even the drugstore, or you can make your own varieties at home. Do whatever works for your body the best.
Exercise can help the body to ramp up its circulation and may decrease the look of cellulite. Although cellulite can appear on any body type or shape, it’s more prominent if you are not as muscular or toned. Make sure that you alternate your cardio exercise with strength training for the best benefits. Activities like Pilates, yoga, or weight lifting can build core muscles and allow your body to work as efficiently as possible.
Moisturized skin is happy skin! When your skin is drier, your cellulite should be more prominent, so make sure that you apply moisturizer liberally and daily. There are specific creams and lotions that work to fight cellulite, but you can use whatever your body likes. Some people swear by cocoa butter or coconut oil. Experiment to see what works for you.
You are what you eat! A healthy diet will certainly show up on your body and help your skin and underlying tissue to look healthier and better over time. Omega-3 fatty acids are especially helpful for minimizing the look of cellulite. You can also take Omega-3 supplements. There are plenty of other foods that you can incorporate into your diet to get a glowing, smooth look.
- Spinach and kale
- Cranberry juice
If you simply try to eat a rainbow of vegetables and fruits, you should be on the right path to minimizing cellulite between your treatments. Also, a healthy diet will give you more energy and help your skin, hair, and nails look a lot more radiant. It’s okay to start small with just a few smart switches. Smoothies are also a great day to incorporate plenty of fruits and vegetables into your diet, as well as an easy and healthy breakfast option.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
This treatment is excellent for people who are near or slightly over their ideal weight and want to slim down and tone up in a certain part of their body. It’s great for people who have cellulite that they just can’t seem to get rid of but who don’t want to undergo invasive surgery or need a total overhaul of their bodies. If you have an area or two of your body that you want to look a little bit better, this is the treatment for you.
It’s also a great treatment for people who have just had a baby and but don’t want to go through an invasive mommy makeover. Traditional mommy makeovers, while effective, tend to be quite invasive and require a lot of downtime. Since you don’t need any recovery time with this particular treatment, it’s a great option for moms who can’t afford to spend any time recovering from treatment. It’s also an amazing treatment for those who want a safe, effective, and quick way to change their bodies for the better. If you’re committed to a healthy lifestyle after the treatment, it should work even better.
