Whether you’re tall or short, thin or not, young or old, cellulite can affect anyone. It’s not just the physical aspect but the emotional impact of being self-conscious too. There are thousands of so called cellulite “cures”, however which ones actually work?
In this article, we talk through some of the more popular treatment options for cellulite and share with you the one that stands out from the crowd. It has been proven in clinical studies and cleared by the US Food & Drug Administration.
Common Cellulite Treatments
Massage – there are various treatments that include firm massage or different types of skin manipulation to help drain excess fluid and promote collagen production. Studies have revealed poor results for these types of treatments as the fluid soon returns and new cell production is limited.
Caffeine or retinol creams – these are perhaps the most accessible products that claim to deal with cellulite, however they are temporary at best. They cannot penetrate the skin deep enough and over time, the cost adds up.
Surgical Liposuction – whilst liposuction is ideal for permanently removing areas of unwanted fat, it can actually make cellulite appear worse if the skin is not elastic enough to shrink back to the slimmer figure. As with all surgeries, there are risks including adverse reactions to the anaesthesia, clots and scarring plus liposuction carries a significant recovery time and expense when compared to non-surgical liposuction.
Velashape III is the latest device for effective cellulite treatment. It is a non-invasive body shaping and cellulite reduction treatment that can be done on the thighs, buttocks, flanks, abdomen and arms. It is safe and effective and has been cleared by the FDA (US Food & Drug Administration).
VelaShape III works by using a combination of bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light energy along with suction and massage for optimal treatment. The radio frequency and infrared energy triggers the fat cells to release fat and stimulates new collagen production and regeneration of the connective tissue to improve firmness. Deep tissue massage improves the circulation and removes excess fluid from the treatment area.
Clinically Proven Cellulite Treatment
Over 3 million independent treatments have been performed around the world and the effectiveness of the VelaShape has been proven in numerous clinical studies.
Results from VelaShape III clinical trials show a noticeable improvement in skin firmness and texture over the treated areas and reduce the appearance of cellulite by as much as 65%. It also has the added benefits of circumference reduction of up to 3cm as well as skin tightening. There is no downtime and you can go straight back to work or your normal routine straight afterward.
