Cellulite plagues the vast majority of women, so why hasn’t an effective treatment become as mainstream as facials for example? There are two main reasons why; a) too many products have failed to live up to their promises and consumers have lost trust, and b) because around 99% of treatments and products don’t address all 4 areas that are essential for successful cellulite reduction.
Cellulite is the result of subcutaneous fat cells pushing up against the skin, separated by connective tissue, called septa. It is the septa pulling down that causes the valley in the skin, and the clusters of fat cells pushing up that creates the hill. With age comes diminishing collagen and elastin, and hence the skin also loses its strength and elasticity.
Reasons Why Cellulite Treatments Fail
Effective treatment of cellulite requires a multi-faceted approach. Most treatments fall short for the following reasons:
1. Treat only the skin and fail to treat the fat
It is imperative to reduce the volume of subcutaneous fat to achieve smoother skin. Topically applied products may have a nourishing effect on the outer most layer of the skin, but fail to have any impact what so ever on subcutaneous fat (the fat that lies under the skin). If your clinic is using a device that is not FDA approved, that device has not met standards that would make it safe and effective.
How VelaShape III works to reduce subcutaneous fat
VelaShape III is FDA approved for the treatment of cellulite. Radio frequency and infrared energy are combined to heat the treatment area up to 65 degrees, thereby triggering the fat cells to release fat in the form of triglycerides which are then processed by the liver.
2. Fail to tighten the skin and fail to boost collagen and elastin production
Fat reduction treatment can actually make cellulite more noticeable if the skin remains lax following treatment. For long lasting-results, the strength and integrity of the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin must be improved. Most treatments are incapable of doing this as they do not spark a process of repair to stimulate the renewal of collagen and elastin.
How VelaShape III works to boost collagen and elastin, and tighten skin
The heating effect from the radio frequency energy that penetrates deep into the dermal layer initiates a natural wound healing response. This healing response creates new collagen and elastin matrix, strengthening and tightening the skin for a smoother texture.
3. Fail to stretch the septa
The anchoring effect of septa, or connective tissue, that separates the compartments of fat cells is one of the key factors but most over-looked areas of cellulite treatment. Septa can stiffen and tighten with age. Treatment that gently stretches the septa and improves overall skin quality is ideal for smoother skin.
How VelaShape III works to stretch septa
The pulsed vacuum and mechanical tissue manipulation of the treatment with VelaShape III assists to soften and stretch the septa, thereby reducing the anchoring effect that creates the valley in dimpled skin.
4. Fail to combine with a healthy lifestyle
Many clinics and products will promise a miracle cure. The fact is that for cellulite treatment to be effective and long-lasting, it must be combined with a healthy lifestyle.
VelaShape III is the perfect partner for a healthy diet and exercise, to target stubborn fat and tighten and smooth skin.
VelaShape is FDA approved, having been clinically studied and proven. Treatment can be done in a lunch break and there is no downtime, so you can go straight back to your normal daily activities.
