Arm Fat Removal
Traditional liposuction is a significantly invasive procedure which involves removal of fat from targeted body areas. You can achieve slimmer arms with a revolutionary new treatment called VelaShape II. It helps in contouring the upper arms without the need for anesthesia or scalpels.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides non-surgical upper arm fat reduction treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities.
What is VelaShape II?
VelaShape II is the product of four different technologies aimed at shrinking fat cells. The treatment makes use of the following:
- Radio frequency
- Infrared light
- Vacuum suction
- Mechanical massage
How Does it Work?
VelaShape II will be placed on the skin of your upper arm. It will use massage rollers and vacuum technology to knead the treatment area and create a suction of sorts. Radiofrequency energy along with infrared light will temporarily penetrate fat cells and perforate their membranes. This causes fat cells to release glycerol and fatty acids into the body.
The massage and light therapy also stimulates collagen production resulting in a better skin texture. This is why VelaShape II is FDA cleared for reducing cellulite appearance temporarily.
Number of Treatments Required
Most patients tend to notice visible results after three sessions. However, you may need 4 – 6 sessions spaced a week apart for optimal results. Each treatment session takes only about 30 minutes.
VelaShape II can be used for treating buttocks, upper arms, thighs, love handles, and abdomen. The treatment is non-invasive and quite comfortable.
Ideal Candidacy for VelaShape II
You are a suitable candidate if you meet the following:
- Not be susceptible to blood clots
- Not be diagnosed as having diabetes
- Exhibit cellulite around abdomen, pelvis, or limbs
- Not be pregnant (doctor approval required)
- Not have a pacemaker (doctor approval required)
Downtime and Results Associated with VelaShape II
There is no downtime to the treatment. Results tend to be temporary since VelaShape II only shrinks fat cells and doesn’t destroy them completely. You can ensure long lasting results with a balanced diet. You can prolong results by reducing your calorie intake.
According to previous client reviews, people getting upper arms fat reduction treatment have noticed favorable results. However, an active lifestyle and a balanced diet are must for long term benefits.
