What is VelaShape III?
Approximately 80% of women over the age of 20 are affected by cellulite regardless of their weight and size. Lean women are just as affected by cellulite as heavier women. Cellulite consists of fat cells trapped within the superficial layers of the skin. The only way to smooth it out is to disrupt the connective tissue bands that hold the fat cells in place. The fat cells settle into the deeper layers and the skin looks smoother and more even. Some people believe that liposuction reduces the appearance of cellulite. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Liposuction actually worsens the appearance of cellulite by removing the underlying fat cells and accentuating the irregularity of the of the skin contour. Westside Aesthetics proudly offers the new and improved VelaShape; the first and only FDA approved medical device that penetrates deep enough into the skin to effectively treat cellulite and contour the body. This treatment is painless, non-invasive and requires absolutely no down time.
VelaShape III is a device that combines Bi-Polar radiofrequency energy, infrared light energy, negative pressure and deep tissue massage (elos technology). It is a painless way to change the look of your body without having surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Los Angeles VelaShape III Treatment?
Treatment begins with a free consultation from one of our experts. Any questions you may have will be discussed, and a full treatment regimen will be outlined for you. We recommend once weekly treatments for a series of about 8 weeks. Each treatment lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on how many areas you want to treat. When you come in for treatment, make sure to clean the area to be treated so that it is free of body oils. You also want to make sure that you shave and use a body scrub treatment to remove any sunless tanning products prior to the procedure. The VelaShape III treatment is virtually painless. You don’t need to worry about applying any type of topical pain reliever before your treatment. Once you have your desired look, it’s extremely easy to maintain! Good diet and exercise, along with supporting treatments once every two months will help maintain your newly toned body.
