Any woman who has noticed rippling, dimpling, puckering skin on her body has had the unnerving experience of cellulite. This natural condition has very little to do with weight, but it sure can make you feel uncomfortable about looking heavier and less healthy. Yes, there are fat cells involved in the development and longevity of cellulite. However, it is more an issue of connective tissue and its hold on underlying subcutaneous fat.
About 9 in 10 women have some degree of cellulite. Men, due to genetic differences in fat storage, are not usually affected by the condition. However, with age, their risk increases. If you have cellulite, don’t fret about being the only one. Even models dimple in places besides their cheeks! Also, if you have cellulite, investigate your options for treatment. Modern medicine has some promising modalities, including radio frequency.
VelaShape Gets Results
Dr. Wright has been at the forefront of the VelaShape technology for more than a decade. She has remained in this position since the original device was approved, and has continued to serve patients’ needs as technologies have improved.
The latest modality, VelaShape III, combines several mechanisms. Target tissue is brought to the fat-busting energy source with gentle vacuum that patients find relaxing. Then, tissue is heated with safe, efficient infrared light, and this heat is distributed across the treatment area with bi-polar radio frequency. This combination maximizes results while also shortening the overall treatment time. Also, the complimentary aspects of each type of energy encourages circumference reduction as well as diminished cellulite.
VelaShape III and other VelaShape treatments are appropriate for areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
What to do After Treatment
One of the concerns that may arise when considering cellulite-reducing treatment is the longevity of results. Of course, when you make an investment into looking your best, you want it to reward you for life! Because cellulite is not a weight issue, you may wonder how to maintain results of treatment without incessant dieting.
Fortunately, it is possible to sustain the desired smoothness by scheduling touch up treatments every so often. In between these touch-ups, healthy food and exercise choices can minimize the risk of enlarged fat cells. Substances such as sugar and salt, in particular, should be limited. Hydration is also a key factor in keeping dermal tissues plump and smooth.
