Bikini season is right around the corner, which means you may be a good candidate for a body shaping treatment.
If cellulite and unsightly bulges are preventing you from hitting the beach this spring or summer, you do have some options for tightening and toning your body before the season begins. Whether your goal is to lose a few inches, smooth out lumpy skin, or just undergo a head-to-toe makeover, here are some of the top non-invasive cellulite treatments available at medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers in your area:
VelaShape for Cellulite Reduction
VelaShape is one of the most well-known cellulite reduction procedures on the market, and is currently available at hundreds of medical spas and cosmetic surgery offices around the United States. The treatment is designed to contour, shape and slim down the body using a combination of radiofrequency energy and heat to break down fatty deposits and tighten the skin.
The treatment works uses elos technology and vacuum massage to deliver targeted heat deep into the fatty tissue, which in turn stimulates the lymphatic system and shrinks the fatty chambers. Over time, the skin becomes smoother, more toned, and cellulite is less noticeable.
Thermage Skin Tightening for Cellulite Removal
The makers of the Thermage skin tightening treatment released the ThermaTip CL in 2008. This tip helps to deliver heat deep into the skin’s tissues to increase blood flow to the treated area and rebuild collagen. This results in a smoother, more toned appearance and can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite after a single treatment. Thermage can be administered to several areas of the body, including the back, hips, buttocks, thighs and stomach.
Endermologie for Cellulite Reduction
Endermologie, also known as lipomassage, is another popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure that affects the connective tissue under the skin to increase circulation and stimulate the lymphatic drainage process. The procedure involves delivering a deep tissue massage using heat and rollers to break down fatty tissues and manipulate the tissues. With ongoing treatments, the body appears more toned, sculpted and smooth. Most people need to undergo at least six to eight treatments in order to see significant results.
UltraShape for Cellulite Removal
UltraShape uses ultrasound beams to target the fat cells without affecting surrounding tissues or damaging the skin. The device is administered to the top of the skin, and works to break down stubborn cellulite in problem areas including the thighs, stomach, back and lower waist. It can also help to get rid of loose fat on the abs, arms and inner thighs. Once the fat cells have been broken down, they are eliminated through the body’s natural elimination process. Most people see significant results within a few days after their treatment, and must commit to a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain results.
