What Results Should I Expect and For How Long
The VelaSmooth process is very effective at reducing cellulite. Generally, 12-16 sessions are required over a 6-8 week period, resulting in 2 treatments per week. After the initial sessions, you will need to have maintenance treatments every 1 to 2 months, or as needed.
Most patients report an improvement in the appearance of their skin and a reduction of cellulite after just 5 to 6 treatments. Some patients may not see improvement until half way through their program, or after the eighth treatment.
Although VelaSmooth is not a weight loss tool, many patients look and feel as though they've lost weight because their bodies are better proportioned than before. A recent study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that patients who completed the VelaSmooth protocol had an average reduction of 2.0 cm to 4.0 cm in the circumference of their thigh,1.0 cm to 5.5 cm in the abdominal area, and 2.0 cm to 5.7 cm in the circumference of their hips. Although this may not occur in all patients, some patients do report this additional benefit of the treatment.
Also to note, doctors across North America reported that 100% of their patients using the VelaSmooth saw some improvement in the appearance of their cellulite. As well, patients have reported improved circulation, a decrease in muscle aches and pains and overall better health. Skin tightening, or firming of looser skin, is another benefit many patients enjoy.
It is important to remember that a healthy diet and exercise plan are an important part of maintaining your new body contour.
