Butt Fat Removal
VelaShape II is a non-surgical solution to treating problem areas like the buttocks. Many women are displeased with the appearance of their buttocks and body image. VelaShape II is an easy to use, unique, and comfortable deep therapeutic body contouring therapy that requires zero downtime. It delivers consistent results with enhanced clinical protocols, which can be reproduced again and again.
VelaShape II was FDA cleared in 2007 for temporarily reducing fat deposits and cellulite in the buttocks region. It uses a three-pronged approach – RF energy, infrared light energy, and vacuum technology for deep heating at cells, underlying collagen fibers and surrounding connective tissue. Growth of new elastin and collagen is stimulated by the heating combined with vacuum pressure.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides non-surgical butt fat reduction treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
What to Expect During VelaShape II Treatment
A trained VelaShape technician will apply the handpiece to your buttocks at the target area. The handpiece includes mechanical rollers for massaging and smoothing out the skin. Infrared radio frequencies will be directed on the skin at the same time. RF energy will help in warming the underlying tissues causing fat cells to break apart. Your lymphatic system will aid in getting rid of the dissolved fat.
VelaShape II Treatment Sensation
VelaShape treatment feels like a deep and warm tissue massage. The treated areas tend to feel warm hours after the treatment. However, the procedure is not at all painful. You may experience minor redness, swelling, and bruising, but these tend to resolve quickly. You don’t need to undergo any recovery or downtime after getting a VelaShape II session.
Time Taken for Results to Show
Shrinking of fat cells after VelaShape II tend to take time. However, you will notice a smoothing and tightening sensation almost immediately. You will notice a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and in circumference over the course of the treatment sessions. 4 – 6 weekly sessions are usually recommended to achieve maximum results. You would need occasional touch-ups after that for maintaining results.
How Does VelaShape II Work?
VelaShape II is powered by elos technology and combines bi-polar RF (radiofrequency) with IR (infrared) for heating the tissue at a depth of 3mm and 15mm. Deep heating of adipocytes or fat cells is caused by the combination of RF and IR tech. It also heats up the underlying dermal collagen fibers and surrounding connective fibrous septae.
Higher output of RF can cause even more efficient heating of the fat cells in the butt area. VelaShape II comes with an optimal electrode design. Concurrent application of vacuum allows for faster and deeper heat penetration.
An increase in lymphatic drainage, circulation, cellular metabolism, and collagen depositing is promoted. The technology also stimulates and remodels fibroblast activity and extracellular matrix. The result is overall improvement in skin texture and structure.
It is also possible to combine VelaShape II with other surgical or non-surgical treatments for more comprehensive lower body lift results. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for non-surgical treatments to reduce excess butt fat deposits.
