Velasmooth on love handles

If you indulged over the Festive Season and have said an unwelcome hello to newly-formed curves, then now is the time to rid yourself of them before they become a permanent fixture! 

FDA-approved since 2005, VelaSmooth is a pain-free, non-invasive treatment that targets areas of the body resistant to weight loss through diet and exercise, including the thighs, abdomen, and butt. It can also work brilliantly on stubborn cellulite.  Combining a dynamic duo of infrared and radiofrequency (RF) energies, that work harmoniously with tissue mobilization and suction, deposits of fat and cellulite can be reduces and targeted areas can be tightened. VelaSmooth can also be used following liposuction to improve results.

To ensure optimum results, it is vital to commit to a treatment programme, which usually consists of two weekly treatment sessions of 30 to 45 minutes, with an average of 8 to 10 sessions in one treatment programme.  During treatment, the VelaSmooth device penetrates deep into fatty tissue to contour the body, while the infrared light increases skin elasticity and heats fat beneath the skin. A tissue mobilization vacuum then smoothens out the skin.

There are no known side effects of the treatment, although there are some significant restrictions on who can get VelaSmooth. People with pacemakers, metal joint implants, heart valves, or dental plates can’t be treated because RF current can interfere with these devices or heat up metal implants and it is wise not to treat areas that show signs of skin diseases, scarring, or infections.
