Ready or not, summer is here and it’s time to put away the cool weather clothes for clothes that reveal. Unfortunately, a lot of people are still going to cover up despite the heat and the promise of fun because they feel self-conscious about the cellulite on their thighs and other areas. Ready for Velasmooth?
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a problem that besets many women, and not just women who are older or overweight. It’s an accumulation of fat just beneath the skin of the tummy, buttocks or thighs and gives the area that unattractive, cottage cheese appearance.
The good news is our professionals at PSS MediSpa, Maryland’s premier medical spa, are offering Velasmooth, a procedure that transforms unsightly cellulite to smooth, poolside ready thighs they desire.
How Velasmooth Works
Velasmooth uses what is called elos technology, which is sort of short for electro-optical synergy. It utilizes infrared light and bi-polar radio frequencies to break apart fat cells and have the body dispose of them naturally. Suction is used to smooth the skin out, and the radio waves cause the skin to contract a little and firm up. In this way, cellulite is reduced, the blood flow and therefore oxygen to the area is increased, and the skin of the thighs or buttocks are tightened.
During the Treatment
During the treatment, the client lies on a table at one of our PSS MediSpa offices. Then, our cosmetician applies a handpiece to the thighs. Patients claim they feel a feeling of suction or massage as well as heat from the infrared light. Discomfort is minimal, and some people fall into such a state of relaxation that they fall asleep! A session usually lasts about a half an hour to an hour. Best results are seen when a client has about 16 treatments. These would be scheduled at two a week for eight weeks.
After a session there is redness and bruising, but there’s really no downtime. Indeed, once the discomfort from the sessions goes away, another benefit from Velasmooth is the lessening of aches and pains in the thighs that were there before.
A client should see improvement within two weeks, and this improvement peaks after about two and half months. Touch-up treatments are also recommended. These maintenance sessions are usually given once a month. A healthy diet and exercise prolongs the benefits of the treatment.
