So for years I have just eaten whatever I want, being a Chef and all. Plus having 2 kids does take a toll on the old body…..I turn 30 in June. In so many ways I am not looking forward to it, so I have made drastic changes to my life not only for looks but for health. Last year I had a bit of a health scare…..not pretty and won’t go into the gross details.
There is this new proceedure being offered and has been featured on different shows like The Dr’s, Dr. Phil and even Kim Kardashian has done it…..
VelaShape is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas in as little as 4 treatments. So far I have had one treatment and it is sort of like Laser hair removal. My abdomen was sore, red and in spots bruised…..
This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for cellulite has three components, which together have been shown to be effective in tightening and smoothing skin: radiofrequency energy (RF), infrared light energy, and mechanical vacuum massage.
Here’s how it works: The heat from the RF and infrared light elements of the VelaShape device stimulate the energy “trapped” in the skin’s adipocytes (the medical term for fat cells), causing them to gradually shrink. Those are the cells, of course, that form cellulite, so as they shrink, so do the unwanted pockets of cellulite, improving the skin’s contour.
While VelaShape’s heat works on reducing the fat cells, the device’s mechanical rollers manipulate and smooth out the skin.
In addition to minimizing cellulite dimpling, VelaShape reduces the circumference of the treated thighs—by an average of about an inch, according to studies.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved VelaShape (and its earlier incarnation, VelaSmooth) for the treatment of cellulite on the thighs.
I wanted to throw the question out to people that may have heard of this or have done it what you the reader think of it?
