Thigh Fat Removal
VelaShape II treatment is recommended for patients that are normal to overweight and suffer from stubborn fat deposits or unsightly cellulite in the pelvic region, hips, thighs, and abdomen. The patients should be committed to a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle for optimized results.
Your treatment provider will determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure or not. Feel free to ask questions during your initial consultation and clear all your doubts and concerns before going ahead with the treatment. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides non-surgical thigh fat reduction treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
How Does VelaShape II Work?
VelaShape II combines suction massage, bipolar radiofrequency electrical energy, and infrared light energy. The energy works in a synergistic fashion to heat collagen, fat, and connective tissue underlying the skin. It also helps in improving the lymphatic flow and circulation of the treated area. As a result, there is an increase in metabolic pressure while the skin and collagen becomes firm.
VelaShape II Target Areas
VelaShape II is usually performed on the thighs and buttocks. It can also be performed on flanks and abdominal area to target stubborn unwanted fat in the region. Many people seek the treatment in their arms to get better toned upper arms.
How Many Procedures Are Required?
You would need more than a few procedures to get optimal results. There are many internal and external changes that take place in your body as you age. Cellulite and fat pockets become more stubborn. You would need 1 to 2 maintenance sessions every 4 to 6 months if you want to prevent new cellulite formation and want to maintain optimal results.
Time Taken By Each Treatment
Size and number of target areas determine the treatment time taken. The size of an 8 1/2” x 11” piece of paper can be treated at a time. Each area requires about 20 to 30 minutes to be treated properly.
Ideal Way to Maintain Results
People who are naturally fit will find it easy to maintain VelaShape II results. Others may have to work a little harder at exercise and diet to maintain their figure. Generally, the best way to prolong results is to keep up with regular physical exercise and have a healthy diet.
VelaShape II is a safe procedure and involves minor bruising. There is also a low risk of skin burns which is natural with any device using energy for producing heat. Properly trained providers can minimize the risk of side effects.
Alternatives to VelaShape II
VelaShape II is the first and only FDA cleared device for reducing circumference and cellulite in the thigh area. It combines three unique energies – infra-red light energy, radiofrequency electrical energy, and suction massage for delivering best results.
Alternative treatments are usually stand-alone infrared, massage, or radiofrequency. They don’t have the synergistic effect of combining various energies as VelaShape II does. The technology begins showing results where diet and exercise fails at reducing stubborn cellulite.
