In order to understand why the Velasmooth cellulite treatment is so successful you should first understand a little about cellulite. The storage of body fat in the connective tissue of the hypodermis (the deepest layer of the skin) causes pockets of fat cells to become over-inflated, pushing up through the connective tissue and causing a dimpling, cottage cheese, or orange peel effect on the skin.
This is a condition which is endured by the majority of women aged over 20 regardless of whether they are overweight or not. In fact cellulite affects 80% of all women. Most women consider cellulite to be unsightly and are embarrassed by it. It affects the abdomen, thighs, calves, arms, neck and hips.
Velasmooth cellulite treatment makes use of electrical-optical synergy, otherwise known as “elos”. This technology is a synergy of bi-polar radio frequency, light energy, tissue manipulation and negative pressure.
Velasmooth, using “elos” technology is an aesthetic medical device, approved by the FDA as a non-surgical, non-invasive technique for contouring the body. As far as the reduction of cellulite affected areas goes, elos is recognized as a breakthrough treatment.
It has undergone clinical trials and many thousands of women globally have successfully and safely undergone this treatment for body contouring.
Conventional laser and intense pulse light therapy have severe procedural limitations, but because of the innovation of elos by Dr. Shimon Eckhouse and physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel, Velasmooth makes use of a more controlled procedure.
Radio frequency and the synergy of optical energy provide a far more controlled energy source which is perfect for every skin type. The treatment only targets problem areas and this limits any damage to other areas of the epidermis.
As well as light energy and bi-polar radio frequency Velasmooth cellulite treatment makes use of specifically designed rollers and a vacuum to deliver an increased amount of oxygen to the skin.
This oxygen delivery causes an increase in circulation which helps to metabolize the fatty tissue and reduce the appearance of cellulite. The fat storage chambers shrink and the targeted skin areas look and feel far smoother.
A special adaptor has been designed and is available in the Velasmooth cellulite treatment system to specifically target the neck and arms, this effectively contours these areas.
An added benefit received from these treatments is the relief of aches and pains. This is due to the fact that when oxygen is introduced to the skin, it increases circulation, this in turn not only has the effect of smoothing the skin and reducing cellulite, it also has other health benefits.
Velasmooth cellulite treatment may be used safely and effectively and no side-effects have ever been documented.
