Non-Surgical Cellulite Removal with Velasmooth
If there is anything that can make you hide behind a cover-up on the beach or buy shorts that are just a little longer than you prefer, it is cellulite. This is commonly thought of as an overweight woman’s problem, but it can affect anyone. In fact, it is more likely that you will develop cellulite at some point in your life than it is that you won’t.
If you are already noticing some lumps and bumps that you don’t appreciate, VelaSmooth treatment by Syneron is a non-surgical procedure that delivers fast results so you can shorten your shorts and ditch the swimsuit cover-up this year. If you have a couple hours a week, you have the time needed to put this proven treatment to work on your body.
Behind the Technology
It is easy to lump VelaSmooth into the general category of non-invasive laser treatment, but this procedure is different than most other laser treatments. You don’t need anesthesia or sedation because the treatment is not painful. You can expect little to no recovery time, making this a time-efficient solution to cellulite on the arms, legs, buttocks, neck, abdomen and other cellulite-prone areas of the body. These are the advantages to selecting a non-surgical cellulite removal treatment.
What makes this treatment different from many other laser cosmetic procedures is the use of elōs technology. Radio frequencies and infrared light are used to heat the surface skin to a depth of approximately half an inch. This light treatment is delivered through an innovative machine manufactured by Syneron and will help eliminate cellulite in the following ways:
- Identifies pockets of cellulite-causing fat underneath the skin with incredible precision
- Increases oxygen flow to affected cells so that fat is metabolized efficiently
- Shrinks fat cells
- Smooths and contours the skin for a more attractive appearance
Once the light energy is applied to the skin, well-trained, experienced medical practitioners use a unique combination of massage and gentle suction to smooth and contour the skin. Cellulite is remedied as a result of the faster metabolism of fat under the skin combined with the manipulation of skin tissue in the treated area.
When VelaSmooth first came on the market with elōs technology, it was not suitable for small, narrow areas of the body, such as the neck. The machinery delivering the treatment has been improved so that these smaller areas of your body can now benefit from this non-surgical cellulite treatment.
What to Expect from Treatment
This is a genuine lunch break cosmetic procedure. Depending on the surface area to be treated, you can expect each treatment session to last 30-60 minutes. Most people find the treatment comfortable without any form of anesthesia, and you don’t have to worry about a long recovery period. Most patients will receive their treatment and continue on with their day without any pain or irritation.
The frequency and duration of treatment is determined on an individual basis. Your trained and experienced VelaSmooth provider should look at your body, consider your medical history and ask questions during an initial consultation. The information collected during this consultation will determine the details of your initial treatment process.
Most patients require multiple treatment sessions per week for at least one or two months. Patients typically start seeing visible results within the first month of treatment. This is not a permanent solution to cellulite, so follow-up treatments will be needed to maintain the results achieved during the initial course of treatment.
Benefits beyond Cellulite Relief
The primary benefit of receiving VelaSmooth treatment is to reduce or eliminate the unflattering appearance of skin affected by cellulite. The non-surgical procedure is definitely effective for most patients in search of a long-term cellulite solution, but many patients also experience some other pleasant results from this procedure.
Due to the warming of tissue with light and the massage motion employed during the procedure, many patients experience relief from muscular aches and pains after treatment. This may not be an affordable or recommended treatment for chronic pain, but it is an added potential benefit for those who have cellulite as well as aches and pains.
There is also a contouring or shaping effect that is often achieved with this treatment. This comes from the reduced fat storage under the skin. The skin does look smoother and flatter, but the shape of some body areas may change to some extent as well.
Is VelaSmooth Safe?
Since this treatment does not require incisions in your skin and the innovative technology is virtually pain-free, it is one of the safest cosmetic procedures currently on the market for cellulite relief. This is also an FDA-approved non-surgical cellulite treatment.
