Nobody likes the cottage cheese-like appearance of cellulite under their skin. This dimply, lumpy skin appearance, which is more common in females, and affects between 80% to 90% of women, is believed to be caused by the interaction between the connective tissue that lies just beneath the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat that you have, which is just below it. While cellulite most commonly appears on the buttocks, it can also show up on your thighs and abdomen, making you uncomfortable in certain clothing or bathing suits. Luckily, you don’t have to live with cellulite forever. VelaShape II™ is a unique, non-invasive solution for the treatment of cellulite.
What is VelaShape II™?
VelaShape II™ is a unique technology that combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum. It causes a deep heating of fat cells, and their adjacent connective tissue and underlying dermal collagen fibers. What this means is that VelaShape II™ stimulates the production of new and better collagen and elastin, which results in:
- Reduction of Skin Laxity.
- Reduction of Body Volume.
- An overall improvement of your skin structure and texture, which means bye-bye cottage cheese!*
You and VelaShape II™
Many of Dr. Jaffer’s patients in Vancouver and Burnaby are understandably curious about what a VelaShape II™ treatment feels like. Most patients describe it as a warm, deep tissue massage. You may feel some lingering warmness on your treatment area for a few hours after your session. And some patients might display a pinkish appearance on their treatment area for a few hours or more after their treatment.
