Ugh – cellulite. The dreaded and annoying dimples found on your thighs, butt, arms or stomach. Some women will admit that seeing cellulite makes them feel insecure, but they’re not alone. Nearly 90 percent of adult women are battling stubborn cellulite. We all want to know how to get rid of cellulite and tighten our skin, but is there actually an effective way to do so? The answer is – yes! Dr. Amerian and Dr. Anterasian, at the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center, are here to answer all your questions and tell you how to get rid of cellulite.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the annoying condition that happens when enlarged packets of body fat deep under our skin blow up to the surface, resulting in dimples on the skin. Anyone can develop cellulite, no matter their body weight.
How to Get Rid of Cellulite
Over the years, many different treatments have been used to treat this condition, but none of the treatments were ever particularly effective. Cellulite has historically been a very difficult problem to treat, until recently.
Say hello to cellulite’s worst nightmare – the VelaSmooth device. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Amerian gave insight on how to get rid of cellulite: heat it, knead it, zap it and inject it with the VelaSmooth device.
The VelaSmooth device is the latest development in technology that is used to treat cellulite. It is a laser-like device that combines radio frequency and infrared light energies with tissue mobilization. These three treatment modalities work together to safely and effectively improve cellulite and re-contour the skin surface.
Exercise and a healthy diet, when done in combination with the VelaSmooth treatments, will further contribute to amazing results. The VelaSmooth can be used to treat cellulite located in the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, or upper arms. Goodbye, cellulite!
What Are the Treatments Like?
VelaSmooth treatments have been described as a warm massaging sensation that is well tolerated. The treated area may appear flushed or pink from the heat for a short period following the treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after leaving the office.
Generally, a series of 12 treatments twice a week for six weeks is needed to obtain the optimum result. Each treatment session takes around 30-40 minutes.
