Laser Cellulite Reduction
Embarrassing, unwanted cellulite on the hips, thighs and buttocks can be quite a nuisance, but at Cheryl's Hair Removal and Cellulite Reduction Center, removing cellulite with laser cellulite reduction has never been easier. Cellulite is a very common condition; so common in fact, over 90% of women over the age of 20 suffer from some degree of cellulite. The appearance of cellulite is very similar to that of an orange peel. The skin takes on a lumpy, dimpled appearance and once formed, can be very difficult to remove. While diet and exercise can help, many women are turning to more advanced solutions.
Before committing to a cellulite treatment, it is first important to understand how cellulite forms and why it occurs. All of our muscles are covered with a padding of fatty connective tissue and covering this connective tissue is a liquid that works to properly circulate and remove waste products from the area. When this system fails to work properly (mainly due to water retention), waste starts to build up causing the connective tissue to stretch, harden and thicken. This hardening is what causes the bumpy, dimply appearance associated with cellulite and once it appears, it can be very hard to remove.
Proper diet and exercise can help to reduce your chances of developing unwanted cellulite, but genetics also plays a large role in its formation, so for some, cellulite is inevitable. All hope is not lost however, because at Cheryl's, a division of Buffalo Laser Spa, Inc., two revolutionary types of cellulite reduction can be found in VelaShape™ and SmoothShapes®.
VelaShape™ – Featuring the revolutionary Elos™ technology, VelaShape™ treatments at Cheryl's Hair Removal and Cellulite Reduction Center can safely and effectively reduce the visible signs of cellulite. The combination of bipolar radio frequency and laser technology with mechanical massage and vacuum suction works to effectively treat problem cellulite. This triple action technology works to increase lymphatic drainage, promote metabolism of stored energy and reduce the size of fat chambers within the fatty connective tissue. VelaShape™ treatments promote the removal of stored fat cells in order to return the skin to its natural shape.
VelaShape™ treatments are innovative because they target and treat both the outer and deeper layers of skin. This increases the fatty tissue reached and allows for more successful results. In order to see a visible reduction in unwanted cellulite, a series of VelaShape™ treatments are needed. Patients will most likely undergo four initial treatments and will need additional maintenance treatments in order to keep the skin smooth and cellulite free.
SmoothShapes® – SmoothShapes® at Buffalo Laser Spa, Inc is the newest form of cellulite reduction to become available to consumers, and its revolutionary technology is changing the way cellulite is removed. SmoothShapes® takes a scientific approach to the removal of unwanted cellulite—instead of merely assisting in the removal of trapped fat cells, through a proprietary technology known as Photomology, SmoothShapes® works to treat the fibrous septae in order to improve the condition of the connective tissue within the skin. As cellulite forms, the connective tissue can stretch which leads to the trapping of excess fat cells. By reducing the connective tissue, cellulite is not only treated, but the chances of it returning are reduced.
Through the use of laser light, vacuum suction and contoured rollers, Photomology® technology liquefies and removes unwanted fat. By removing unwanted fat cells and smoothing and tightening the skin, SmoothShapes® can help to reduce the visible signs of cellulite for a smooth, dimple free appearance.
Removing unwanted cellulite is no easy feat, but by maintaining a proper diet and a regular exercise routine, in addition to undergoing safe, effective laser cellulite reduction treatments, patients can get back smooth, tight cellulite free skin.
