Elos® Cellulite Treatment
It’s estimated that 80% of all women have cellulite no matter what size, shape or weight they are. Cellulite can manifest at any time and in areas that harbor mostly fat. The inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, and the buttocks are areas that respond well to VelaShape.
Post-pregnancy studies have proven Velashape to be very effective in helping Mom get back to pre-pregnancy form. The ideal candidate for Velashape is someone that is close to their ideal Body Mass Index. Usually this number is below 30 for best results. Velashape is not a weight loss solution, or a permanent treatment.
Velashape is most commonly compared to the feeling of a warm, deep tissue massage; however some describe a small “pinching” sensation. No medication or anesthetic is needed for this procedure. Most people experience no side effects at all, though a few exhibit some short-term localized reddening, or a slight bruising of the treatment area. There can also be some residual spider veins from the treatment. There is no patient downtime. Pricing is based on area and number of treatments needed. Schedule a complimentary consultation to determine if you are a candidate.
Subcision is an innovative surgical technique that can treat distinct depressed lesions on the thighs and buttocks. These depressions are there because “scar like” tissue, septa, is pulling down on the skin surface creating this irregularity. This treatment is only suitable for depressions that are apparent without muscular contraction (grade 2 or 3 Cellulite). It works by releasing the tissue pulling down the skin as well as creating new connective tissue deposition in the depression filling it out and making it smoother.
A free consultation is the best way to determine what approach will help with cellulite.
