Summer is in full swing and shorts, skirts, and bathing suits have been pulled out of the closet for the upcoming days of heat and sun. However, one backward glance in the mirror can make a person want to crawl back into the leggings and long sweaters to hide that awful looking cellulite on the legs, thighs, buttocks, belly, or even upper arms. Before you think about hiding all summer, read on to see how you can get rid of that cellulite.
How Did I Get Cellulite?
There are many factors that can contribute to a person’s likelihood of having cellulite. These can include age, changes in estrogen levels, poor circulation, collagen loss, family history, weight gain, and increases in the amount of fatty tissue in various areas of the body. Cellulite often develops when women experience a decline in estrogen. When estrogen levels drop changes in circulation can occur and collagen production can be dramatically reduced. Cellulite itself is not dangerous but may cause people to feel self-conscious because of its dimpled, bumpy texture.

How Can I Get Rid of Cellulite?
One of the treatments used at Skinatomy Laser Clinic is VelaShape. VelaShape is a unique treatment that features a combination of bi-polar radiofrequency, infrared light energy, and vacuum and mechanical massage. The VelaShape produces targeted heating of fat cells, the surrounding connective tissue, and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This increases the metabolism of stored fat and reduces the size of the fat cells while stimulating new collagen production. This will give your skin a smoother surface. The use of vacuum and the mechanical massage smooth out the skin and help to ensure safe, even, and efficient heat energy delivery.
Treatments take 30-45 minutes. Patients typically need three treatments to achieve their desired results, however the number of treatments will depend on the amount of cellulite being treated and the size of the affected area. The team at Skinatomy Laser Clinic will create an individualized plan for treating your specific problem areas. After your VelaShape treatments, you can immediately go about your normal daily routine because there is absolutely no downtime with this treatment. Some patients experience redness or swelling around the treatment area, but this typically subsides within 24-48 hours. You will begin to see results in about four to eight weeks after your treatment and will be ready to confidently stroll down the beach or boardwalk.
