It’s time to get real on the deal with cellulite: all women have it, and tons of those women have tried just about everything to get rid of it. Creams, scrubs, dietary changes- there are tons of options on the market promising incredible results, but not quite delivering on those claims. There’s a new treatment on the market, however, that takes things a step further and straight into your doctor’s office: Velasmooth!
What is Velasmooth?
Velasmooth is a technique for body shaping and improving the smoothness of the skin on the surface of the body using Elos (electrical-optical synergy) technology: a combination of infrared light and radio-frequency technology in combination with tissue mobilisation and suction. Velasmooth is the first clinically proven device for the treatment of cellulite and fat reduction.
How does Velasmooth work?
Velasmooth uses infrared and radio-frequency technology to heat the fatty tissues and subcutaneous fat in the skin while tissue mobilisation and suction smooth out the skin’s surface, smoothing and redistributing the lumpy, uneven fat that characterises cellulite. The heat applied to the fat cells increases the metabolism of stored energy, which decreases the volume of fat chambers, shrinking the visibility of fat beneath the skin. The procedure is non-invasive, and does not require extensive downtime, making it a great fit for those too busy to commit to more intensive procedures.
Who is the Velasmooth treatment best for?
The Velasmooth treatment can be beneficial for most healthy adults looking to firm, tighten, and minimise cellulite on the skin’s surface. There is no downtime, and most patients do not experience any side effects, making this a great option for those looking for a quick treatment that allows them to return to everyday life afterward. Those with clotting issues, diabetes, those who have any metal implants in their body, and those with extreme photosensitivity are advised to avoid treatment with the Velasmooth.
Velasmooth is also recommended for treatment of minor muscle pain and stimulation of blood flow, as it increases circulation and can be beneficial for those with circulation issues or athletes.
What can I expect when going into treatment with Velasmooth?
The Velasmooth procedure is non-invasive and may cause only minor discomfort depending on the patient’s pain tolerance and the areas being treated. Most patients report that they don’t feel any discomfort during the procedure, and some have even compared it to the feeling of a deep tissue massage. Those who are prone to bruising may experience some slight bruising due to the pressure and suction applied during treatment.
Prior to treatment, it is recommended that the patient discontinue use of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for at least a week before the treatment is performed. The treatments are generally anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes long and do not require downtime or specific aftercare. You may notice an increase in urination after the treatment as your lymphatic system will be flushing out cells broken down during treatment.
How many treatments are required with the Velasmooth to see results?
Initial results can be seen in as little as 4 treatments. However, full results are generally seen after 8-10 treatments, recommended at a frequency of twice a week for the first course of treatment. After the initial treatment, monthly treatment is required to maintain the results. Without this monthly treatment to maintain results, results may begin to fade.
So skip the cellulite creams promising magical results and diets claiming to beat cellulite and go for the clinically proven option: Velasmooth! Let your smooth, supple skin do the talking – not your cellulite.
