Cellulite Treatment Boston
Cellulite is the term used to describe trapped fat pockets that result in irregular dimpling, similar to the skin of an orange. The thighs, buttocks, and abdomen are the most common areas where cellulite tends to develop. It’s important to understand that cellulite can occur even in thin, lean individuals and is not limited to those who are overweight. In fact, it’s estimated that 80% of women over the age of 20 have cellulite to some degree.
At Laser MD Med Spa, we offer non-invasive treatment options to reduce the appearance of unwanted cellulite deposits. Our practitioners know that every patient is unique and work with each patient to determine which treatment option will be most effective.
Below are brief descriptions of the primary cellulite treatments available at Laser MD Med Spa.
This state-of-the-art technology is FDA approved and utilizes laser energy to stimulate the body’s natural process for breaking down and unlocking stored content in the fat cells. The i-lipo laser triggers a natural reaction in the body that releases the fat cells. The process does not cause any damage and the cells remain intact, just smaller. This produces instant results with no recovery period and no downtime.
i-Lipo treatments are typically structured into sessions of eight, with each session lasting approximately one hour. Generally, two to three treatments are done in a week, resulting in roughly a three-to-four week commitment.
However, the number of i-Lipo treatments is based on the requirements and goals of the patient, which will be determined during the initial consultation. Two i-Lipo treatments a week over a four-week period are recommended to complete a full course of cellulite treatments.
One treatment takes roughly 20 minutes, followed by 10 to 15 minutes of infrared laser vacuum massage. The length of time for your post-treatment exercise to “burn off” the free fatty acids will be determined at your consultation and is specified based on the needs of the individual patient.
VelaShape II® Treatments
VelaShape II is a cellulite treatment option offered at Laser MD Med Spa. This non-surgical treatment also uses laser technology to contour, smooth, and slim the body by reducing both the circumference and the cellulite of the targeted area in just six sessions. VelaShape is FDA approved – and tested with over five years of clinical trials – to provide dramatic cellulite reduction without downtime or significant discomfort.
This cellulite treatment is unique because it involves the first and only cellulite-reduction device that combines four different technologies, including infrared, radio-frequency, vacuum tissue manipulation, and massage rollers.
The combinations of technologies create deep heating of the connective tissue, which promotes an increase in collagen depositing and cellular metabolism. The mechanical tissue manipulation causes an immediate increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage. These functions all work together to create an easy, non-invasive, comfortable, deep therapeutic treatment that promotes overall healthy skin.
At Laser MD Med Spa, we understand the importance of tailoring each treatment to match the desired goals and preferences of the individual. We offer the most-qualified professionals to help you through every step of the process.
