Cellulite – this pesky aesthetic issue is said to affect up to 90% of women at some point during their lives. Even though the name makes it sound like a potentially harmful health condition, cellulite is nothing more than fat beneath the skin pushed against connective tissue, causing the unwanted “dimpled” appearance. Many women who experience cellulite anywhere on the body desire to get rid of it so they can feel more comfortable in their own skin. An effective cellulite treatment is VelaShape®, a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. Available to patients living in the greater Tyler, Texas area at Tyler Wellcare, this innovative treatment can provide improvement in as little as four sessions, and VelaShape reviews prove it.
What to Know About Cellulite
Cellulite is the term given to the dimpled, bumpy skin often found on the buttocks, thighs and abdomen in a large number of women. Cellulite is not an indication of being overweight, of inactivity or poor health. It is simply normal fat cells pushed against connective tissue. New technology in the medical field has helped display how cellulite is caused by fat deposits that sit in between collagen fibers.
Although the prevention of cellulite is impossible, certain cellulite treatments are a safe and effective way to reduce the unwanted dimpled skin appearance, such as VelaShape.
VelaShape® as a Cellulite Treatment
VelaShape, a non-invasive cellulite treatment, enables patients to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well-shaped body in less than four treatment sessions. The system uses a combination of technologies to contour specific areas that diet and exercise cannot improve.
It is important to note VelaShape is a cellulite treatment, not a weight loss treatment. The ideal patient is someone with a body mass index (BMI) under 30, and has stage 1 or stage 2 cellulite based on the Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification scale.
- Stage 1: NO dimpling while the patient is standing or lying down, but the pinch test reveals the “orange peel” appearance.
- Stage 2: “Orange peel” dimpling appears spontaneously when standing up, but NOT when lying down.
- Stage 3: “Orange peel” dimpling appears spontaneously both when standing up AND lying down.
Patients of all ages are generally pleased with their results of VelaShape. Read VelaShape reviews and testimonials below courtesy of VelaShape.
