If you are plagued with cellulite that you cannot seem to get rid of no matter what you do, you are not alone. Cellulite is stubborn and anyone can have it, regardless of your age or level of fitness. At Christine Hamori Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Spa, Velashape by Syneron has launched its newest medical treatment for the reduction of cellulite and body contouring. The VelaShape procedure featuring the revolutionary Elos technology enables you to comfortably and safely improve, contour and create a more sculpted body. It is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite. Velashape is a medical device that reduces the appearance of cellulite and will effectively re-contour the skin’s surface and body shape. This new non-invasive technology is capable of noticeable results in less time than any method available currently.
It is estimated that 80% of women over the age of 18 have cellulite. Women are basically genetically and hormonally predisposed to cellulite. Cellulite occurs when fat cells become over-inflated and they become locked into pockets below the skin’s surface. The skin’s connective tissue surrounds fat cells, which are arranged in chambers. The margins of these chambers contain septae. Over time, the fat cells increase in size and number. This phenomenon together with accumulation of localized edema pushes the skin’s surface between the septae in an upward direction. This is what creates the lumpy and dimpled skin appearance, known as a “cottage cheese” appearance.
If you are a Mom struggling to restore your body after a baby, you’re not alone. It’s generally accepted that new Mom’s face a unique set of physical and emotional challenges once the pregnancy and childbirth process is complete. It is easy for new Mom’s to become overwhelmed with the challenges of being a perfect parent and exercising to achieve that pre-pregnancy figure. Most Moms identified their abdomen, also known as post-pregnancy pooch, and thighs as problem areas that they just can’t get back into shape. Even with a healthy diet and exercise some Mom’s cannot minimize the effects of the baby belly. Velashape can be effective in reducing belly fat and safely contour the love handles and hip area.
VelaShape is a medical cellulite solution that utilizes Elos (electrical-optical synergy) technology- a combination of bi-polar radio frequency, infrared energy, plus vacuum and mechanical massage. A vacuum and specifically designed roller manipulate and smooth out the skin, while the infrared and radio frequency shrink the size of your fat chambers. Elos technology is a highly controllable energy heat source that works synergistically with optical energy. The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime and early return to daily activities immediately following treatment. The result is gradual smoothing of the skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite and reshaping of the treated areas. This energy light source is safe for all skin types. The result of VelaShape is smoother, firmer and tighter skin. With several treatments it can enhance your body, improve your lifestyle and make you feel better about yourself!
Velashape is the only non-surgical medical device cleared by the FDA for circumferential thigh reduction. Patients may have treatments to the abdomen, love handles, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, saddlebags and skin above the knees. Velashape treatments are safe, effective and virtually painless with no downtime and patients can return to daily activities immediately following treatments. Most Velashape treatments are offered in a series of 6 or 8 and performed weekly. Each treatment generally takes about 45 minutes and it is normal to have some mild redness for a few hours. The result of Velashape is a smoother, firmer and tighter skin.
