More on VelaSmooth and How It Reduces Cellulite

Dimples are supposed to show on your face when smiling, not anywhere else. As many women know, cellulite is a big problem and we try everything and anything that is new on the market. Most of the miracle creams don't work, and we end up spending more money on something else that promises to reduce the dimples on our thighs, butt, or stomach.

What is cellulite and why don't men have it? Estrogen, which promotes the storage of fat, is thought to play a role in the formation of cellulite. Under the microscope, we see small bundles of fat that are encapsulated by fibrous bands of tissue. These bands are seen histologically more frequently in women then men. Women on average store their fat beneath the skin where men store in around their mid section.

VelaSmooth a combination of infrared light, radio frequency, and endomology works! In a study done by Tina Alster, M.D., founding director of the Washington Institute of Dermatological Laser Surgery, female volunteers received a total of eight, twice-weekly VelaSmooth treatments on one side of the body. Digital photos were taken and after just one month the average reduction in thigh measurement was 0.8 centimeters. The study authors also reported a 50 percent improvement in cellulite.

Heat from the infrared source warms the superficial tissue and increases the elasticity of the skin; radio frequency heats the deeper fat deposits, increasing blood flow to the region and endomology(suction/massage) loosens the bands around the fat deposits reducing dimpling and promoting drainage of lymphatic fluid from the area. The most common side effect was temporary redness due to the massage and heat.

The results last approximately six months and maintenance treatments may be required to keep the cellulite away. But for anyone who is serious about getting rid of the dimples, monthly maintenance is not a bad deal since VelaSmooth can be done on your lunch break, or even before you go to work in the morning. So toss the creams and look into VelaSmooth today by contacting Dr. Hamori or visit her website and make an appointmet to do VelaSmooth!
