Why VelaShape® is the Best Treatment for Cellulite in Washington D.C.

VelaShape II Near Washington DCIt can be incredibly frustrating to attempt to lose weight by adopting a healthier lifestyle, including a diet and exercise regimen, only to find that certain areas of your body are more stubborn than others. For some of us, no matter how hard we work to achieve results, there will be a pouch of stubborn fat or an area of unwelcome cellulite that seems to mock us.

Luckily, we have options. VelaShape® is a non-invasive (meaning non-surgical) body contouring treatment that targets cellulite and fatty deposits.

What is VelaShape®?

At first glance, it may seem too good to be true to have an FDA-approved, safe and effective body contouring procedure that is completely non-surgical. VelaShape® treatments involve the use of infrared light, radiofrequency, massage rollers, and suctioning to precisely contour your body. The VelaShape® handpiece will massage and smooth out your skin as the radio frequencies work to warm up underlying tissue, causing fat cells to break up and dissolve.

Areas that can be treated include your neck (under the chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank, and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results as they progress through their treatment plan.

Who is the Ideal Candidate?

It is important to remember that VelaShape® is not a substitution for a healthy lifestyle. The treatment uses a combination of technologies to smooth and contour troublesome areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. The ideal candidate will have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less and will be looking to target patches of cellulite or other stubborn fatty deposits.
