VelaShape II is the newest clinically proven treatment available at Therapie Clinic designed to target the fat cells in the thighs and buttocks attributed to causing cellulite.
Cellulite appears when fat cells located deep under the layers of the skin become engorged with excess fat, water and other toxins which results in the fat cells pushing through the connective fibres in the skin causing a dimpled effect.
VelaShape II is the only FDA-approved treatment proven to treat cellulite and reduce thigh circumference by using thermal energy to target and destroy fat cells under the skin. VelaShape II also uses mechanical massage and vacuum suction to enhance results and improve overall skin tone and texture.
VelaShape II at Therapie Clinic uses safe levels of Infrared light and Bi-Polar Radio Frequency to direct heat to fat cells under the skin which causes an increase in their metabolism.
This thermal energy effect results in fat being removed more efficiently from the cells so that they can shrink back to their original size and are no longer visible on the skin’s surface.
Cellulite is often attributed to a build-up of toxins under the skin and VelaShape also aids the natural removal of these toxins by applying stimulating massaging techniques and vacuum pressure to the thighs and buttocks.
This works to improve overall circulation and boost lymphatic drainage while encouraging the body to produce more collagen to reinforce skin strength.
Approximately 50% of women say that they were unprepared for the changes in their body after having a baby. The truth is that the body changes in many ways during pregnancy with the body naturally holding onto fat more readily that normal in preparation for birth and lactation.
When the body stores more fat, it also tends to store water which can give way to fluid retention, bloating and general discomfort. The appearance of cellulite can be exacerbated by pregnancy which causes dimpled, lumpy thighs and buttocks. VelaShape II is particularly effective in body reshaping post-partum as it can help women who are struggling to get rid of cellulite.
VelaShape II is FDA approved meaning that it has been deemed safe and effective for use in the treatment of cellulite. It does not cause any undue damage to surrounding tissue or cells under the skin as it only targets fat cells which are more sensitive to controlled temperature changes.
VelaShape II is a relatively painless procedure that uses infrared light and bi-polar sound waves to boost circulation, decrease the appearance of cellulite and improve fat loss. The treatment on average takes 30-40 minutes and feels similar to a warm, deep tissue massage; some patients may experience bruising or tenderness after treatment.
VelaShape II works on the deeper layers of fat and tissue located under the skin and can dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite. Many patients experience a notable reduction in the appearance of cellulite after just one treatment, but because the breakdown of fat cells is a gradual process, a course of at least four treatments is recommended for long-lasting results.
VelaShape II is a non-invasive treatment and depending on how your general health is after giving birth, you can start treatments as soon as you feel comfortable.
