People who have lost a significant amount of weight, or those that live an inactive lifestyle are prone to developing patches of cellulite.
Cellulite can appear on the hips, thighs and buttocks after weight loss, but is not uncommon in people who are at a healthy weight. While massage treatments and exercise can help to minimize the appearance of cellulite, there is still no permanent solution for getting rid of the unsightly pockets of fat.
The BellaContour device has recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for enhancing muscular blood flow and reshaping the body. The device is designed primarily to target cellulite, and makes use of ultrasound therapy and muscle stimulation to achieve results. The BellaContour deviceis currently available at the Shapes Body Contouring facility, owned by Dr. Robin Owen.
BellaContour works beyond the top layer of the skin to deliver a micro-massage and accelerate blood flow deep under the skin’s tissues. It is designed with a combination of Dual Program Mode and Real Time Resonance Technology to treat multiple layers of skin in one session. This technology is coupled with an electrode system to produce better results.
There are no known side effects to this treatment, and it can be operated by non-medical personnel. The goal of these treatments is to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, improve the quality of the skin and reduce joint pain. It can be used on both men and women, and results are contingent upon the person maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine.
Since the BellaContour system is an aesthetic device, treatments are not covered by insurance. The average rate for the treatments is $2,500 for a package of 10 procedures, and the aesthetic surgery center may offer financing options for eligible patients.
