Velashape 3 for Skin
Velashape 3 on its own is great for smoothing out skin, improving cellulite or for refining skin post liposuction. This non-surgical technique is known to bring into use three components for effective results, namely Infrared radiation, Bi-polar radio frequency, and mechanical vacuum massage. One major reason behind the use of this treatment is its effectiveness in enhancing the appearance and making the person look younger.
Working on areas like thighs, buttocks, necks, arms, abdomen, sides and so on, VelaShape 3 treatment contours the body however, it must not be confused for a weight loss treatment. The technology combines the three components in the VelaShape 3 device to heat up the fat cells and thus lead to their shrinkage. In this procedure, a vacuum is massaged over the targeted area wherein the heat helps with the fat reduction while the mechanical rollers smoothen out the skin. The patient can feel some tugging of the skin along with a warming sensation as the procedure unfolds.
Stimulation of new collagen and elastin as a result of heating of the fat cells, surrounding connective and underlying dermal collagen fibers leads to reduced body volume, laxity and improvement in skin texture.
