How many hours have you spent trying to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat? Cellulite is known to be diet and exercise resistant and it’s important to understand that there are different types of fat and they need different approaches when trying to banish them. Fat reduction treatments are not just for overweight people, they are also for fit and healthy people who just need a new approach when dealing with defiant fat.
In this article we discuss different types of fat and effective treatment options for those hard to shift areas.
Body Fat Anatomy
There are two main types of body fat – visceral and subcutaneous. Visceral fat is found between and around our organs and it is this type of fat that can be reduced by eating a healthy diet and exercising. Subcutaneous fat is found just under the skin and is much harder to eliminate.
We all need body fat for protection and energy, however it doesn’t always accumulate in the most appealing manner and this is what Feel Good Laser & Skin Clinic can help with. Local fat deposits are often resistant to diet and exercise. These areas are located just under the skin in the subcutaneous fat. Local fat deposits are commonly found on the outer thighs, love handles, and lower abdomen.
Only approximately 15% – 20% of women defy getting cellulite. In women, the fat cell chambers in the subcutaneous tissue are “capped” at the end and when these “caps” are put under pressure by increased volume in the cell, by fluid retention, toxins or by weakened or ageing skin, that’s when the dimpled appearance occurs. The only technology capable of targeting fat, tightening skin and improving the skin’s texture is the VelaShape III.
Effective Treatment for Diet Resistant Cellulite
VelaShape III is a safe, effective and comfortable treatment that reduces cellulite and body circumference through body sculpting. It works by using a combination of bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light energy along with suction and massage. The radio frequency and infrared energy triggers the fat cells to release fat and stimulates new collagen to improve skin firmness. Deep tissue massage improves circulation and removes excess fluid from the treatment area.
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.
If you want to add non surgical liposuction to your treatment plan then UltraShape Power can be used for effective body contouring to destroy fat cells and help you to remove those persistent fat deposits sooner.
