Not many of us are lucky enough to escape the dreaded ‘C’ …It is estimated over 80% of women over 20 have cellulite. This herniation of subcutaneous fat manifests itself topically as skin dimpling – often referred to as the orange peel effect as it resembles the dimpled skin of the citrus fruit. There are many products out there such as magical creams and body brushes that claim to banish cellulite but more often than not they don’t make any difference at all.
There are many causes of cellulite such as dieting too much, changes in metabolism, hormonal or genetic factors, but whatever the cause of cellulite most people will be more interested in what can reduce its appearance.
Our Vela Shape treatment applies deep, dense heat to problem areas, targeting tissues with infrared and bipolar radiofrequency energies to reduce fat cell volume and tighten skin. This FDA-cleared non-invasive medical solution, gives the appearance of smoother skin many areas of the body including the thigh, buttocks, hips, arms and abdomen.
From our Surrey cosmetic clinic we offer these treatments usually as a course of 6 sessions over 6 weeks though you may see some results after just 4 weeks. Though it is not a permanent cure (the world is still searching for one of these!) it seems to be the most effective treatment at reducing the appearance of unwanted cellulite and as it is non invasive it is a very appealing procedure.
