If you have cellulite, you may have noticed that weight loss can make it look even worse. To get rid of cellulite, you have to get rid of what causes it: tough bands in your skin that your All You Medical Spa doctor softens with Alma’s V-Shape Ultra. If you live in the Mountain View, California area, you can improve your cellulite by improving your skin at All You Medical Spa. Reach the aesthetic physicians for an appointment by calling the friendly office team or using the online form.
Cellulite, sometimes called “cottage-cheese fat” is a skin condition in which tough, fibrous bands of collagen pull your skin downward, toward the muscle layer. The pull of the bands through your fat causes the fat to bulge upward, causing that dimpled, cottage-cheese look that mars the beauty of your thighs, buttocks, or abdomen.
Because cellulite is caused by your skin, rather than by fat, losing weight sometimes makes it look worse. Although weight loss may be healthy in your case, it won’t improve your cellulite.
V-Shape Ultra takes a two-pronged approach to improve the look of cellulite and give you the smooth, silky thighs, bottom, and tummy you desire. V-Shape warms up your skin with radiofrequency (RF) energy in a series of soothing, relaxing treatments.
The RF energy softens the bands of collagen that pull through your fat, causing unattractive tufts and dimples. When the bands loosen, they don’t pull on your skin anymore, allowing it to smooth out and lie flat.
V-Shape Ultra’s RF energy also heats up the collagen layer of your skin. The heat stimulates your body to produce more collagen to make your skin thicker and stronger and fill out cellulite dimples. This process, known as collagen remodeling, results in healthier, firmer skin that looks smooth and silky.
V-Shape’s RF energy feels warm and soothing, not hot. Most women and men find a V-Shape cellulite treatment to be relaxing. You can feel free to read a book, check your smartphone, or just doze off during your session.
V-Shape requires no downtime. After your cellulite treatment, you return to your normal activities. You may need a series of treatments to get optimal results.
If you have cellulite, you probably have a genetic tendency to develop the fibrous bands that cause cellulite. Touching up your results with V-Shape every year or two helps to keep your skin looking smooth and cellulite-free.
To get started on a lovelier cellulite-free shape, contact the aesthetic physicians at All You Medical Spa. Call the helpful office staff, or schedule an appointment online.
