Guess What’s the Best Thing for Getting Rid of Cellulite?

One of the greatest complaints I hear from women about their bodies is cellulite, whether it’s been present forever or just after having children, cellulite can be treated. Plenty of creams and lotions are out on the market to reduce the appearance of cellulite, but the latest thing and most effective thing is Velashape.

According to American Academy of Dermatology, Inc., “noninvasive devices employing radio frequency technology have gained acceptance and supremacy in the treatment of cellulite.” The purpose of a machine like Velashape is to not only smooth out cellulite but also tone and shape those areas which are affected. “The purpose of integrating radio frequency into cellulite treatment is to affect the connective tissue septae and fat, both of which contribute to cellulite. Of the available radio frequency devices, Velashape, also known as VelaSmooth has been approved by the FDA specifically for cellulite treatment. The TriActive laser combines a low-energy diode laser, contact cooling, suction and massage. This system has been shown to reduce cellulite. The VelaSmooth combines infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies and suction with mechanical massage,” says the American Academy of Dermatology. Reduce cellulite, tighten skin, and improve skin texture in areas of the body such as the buttock, midsection, thighs and legs.

There are no injections, anesthesia, or downtime. Velashape works great as a standalone treatment, or to enhance the results of liposuction. A series of 5 to 6 treatments is generally recommended for best results. For more information on cellulite treatments consult your Dermatologist today.
