Winter may be upon us, but that’s no reason to let the extra pounds get packed on us as well. Although you may be able to hide behind oversized sweaters and layers at times, you never know when you may get an invitation to take a dip in a hot tub, and you don’t want to get left out in the cold. In addition, people are often hurried and attempt to lose weight at the end of winter, but the warm weather is here before they know it, and diet and exercise do not always achieve their desired results. Many people are left with stubborn pockets of fat or excess skin that they cannot eliminate despite their most arduous efforts.
While surgical options are available to contour the body and produce a more slender figure, not everyone has the time or optimum health to undergo these procedures.
For those who want fast results without the downtime, Dr. Roussalis offers non-surgical ways to help achieve a svelte figure any time of the year.
Vanquish™, VelaShape®, and UltraShape® are non-invasive procedures that specifically target problem areas to produce more slender body contours. These procedures exclusively target stubborn fat to safely and effectively reduce the circumference of the body.
Benefits of Vanquish™, VelaShape®, and UltraShape®
- FDA approved
- Safe (no harm to the surrounding tissue)
- No downtime
- No bruising or swelling
- Produce smooth, consistent results (no skin dimpling)
- Permanent results as long as patients maintain a healthy weight
Vanquish™ works by heating fat cells to the point of apoptosis (cell death), which are then eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic processes. The contact-free device delivers radiofrequency energy directly into the fat tissues, which heats the region without harming the skin or adjacent muscles.
Vanquish™ can reduce excess fat in the abdomen, waist, thighs, buttocks, hips, and arms. A series of four 30-minute treatments produce visible and measurable results.
VelaShape® employs three technologies together to achieve astonishing results. The device emits radiofrequency and infrared light energy, which heat the fat cells to the point of apoptosis (cell death) while also tightening the skin and shrinking stubborn cellulite in the area. At the same time, the mechanical vacuum massage rollers knead the skin into a smooth surface to eliminate dimpling.
VelaShape® has been proven to reduce body circumference and improve cellulite in the thighs, buttocks, love handles, and abdomen with a series of four treatment sessions.
Unlike Vanquish™ and VelaShape®, UltraShape® works by delivering pulsed, focused ultrasound energy to selectively eliminate fat cells. Once the fat is destroyed, it is naturally removed through the body’s metabolic processes.
A series of three 45-minute treatments at two-week intervals has been shown to produce measurable results. UltraShape® results generally become apparent in under two weeks.
Although Vanquish™, VelaShape®, and UltraShape® eliminate fat, they should not be viewed as weight-loss procedures. Candidates for non-surgical fat reduction treatment should be within 30 to 40 percent of a healthy body weight and desire to eliminate areas of fat that have been difficult to improve with diet and exercise.
