What is Syneron Velashape?
The Syneron Velashape cosmetic machine is an FDA-approved treatment for cellulite, a localized skin condition characterized by fat bulges and dimpled appearance on the skin surface. This non-invasive fat reduction treatment is an excellent option for patients looking to reduce fatty areas without surgery and downtime.
How does Syneron Velashape Works?
Syneron Velashape combines four different technologies:
Infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency induce deep heating of the fat cells and the surrounding tissue of the treatment area. This in turn boosts the production of collagen and elastin. On the other hand, vacuum technology and massage rollers provide mechanical tissue manipulation, resulting in immediate increase in blood circulation and lymphatic drainage – both of these processes play an integral part in maintaining healthy skin structure. The combination of increased collagen and elastin production, increased blood circulation, and improved drainage of lymphatic fluid ultimately improves overall skin structure and texture while eliminating trapped toxins and other wastes within the skin.
What Body areas can Syneron Velashape Treat?
For optimal results, medical professionals recommend the following areas for Syneron Velashape cellulite treatment:
What is the Procedure Like?
During the procedure, it is normal to feel a deep heating sensation which is more like a warm, deep-tissue massage as the probe comes in contact with the skin. In fact, the mechanical massage from the rollers is often relaxing for most patients. The procedure takes between 20 minutes to 2 hours depending on the patient’s condition, area being treated, and desired results. Since there are no needles, incisions, or anesthesia used during the treatment, the entire procedure is enjoyable for most patients. Following a Syneron Velashape treatment, no downtime is required so patients can resume their daily activities.
How many Syneron Velashape Treatments are required to see Results?
Ideally, a minimum of 4 treatment sessions per year are recommended to maintain the results of the procedure. However, most patients report noticeable results in just 3 sessions.
Who are the Ideal Candidates for Syneron Velashape Treatments?
Like most cosmetic procedures, Syneron Velashape is not for all patients. This is because it’s not a weight loss treatment. Rather, Syneron Velashape works by contouring the body via fat heating and increased collagen & elastin production.
