Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
Not long ago, women in South Florida had few cellulite reduction options. But times have changed now that the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery has added VelaShapeTM to its comprehensive menu of cosmetic procedures. VelaShape is a revolutionary non-surgical cellulite reduction procedure available to Florida residents at the Center's 2 locations in Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
Historically, non-surgical cellulite treatment options have been limited to creams and topical treatments which most women find to be ineffective. VelaShape effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite by smoothing and toning the skin to create a sexier, more flattering figure.
"We are excited to offer this new, non-surgical cellulite treatment in Florida," says board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Harrell. "Cellulite is a condition that over 80% of women agonize over, and it is especially difficult because there are so few effective treatments. Cellulite can so easily undermine self confidence and make a woman feel unattractive - that's where VelaShape can help."
VelaShape offers Florida women the chance to eliminate unsightly pockets of cellulite without the discomfort and downtime that can accompany surgery. VelaShape works by using state-of-the-art technology to heat fat cells, which reduces their volume. After the fat cells have been heated, vacuum tissue manipulation is used to even out the skin. The only post-treatment effect that most patients experience is minor temporary redness. No needles or cutting are involved and patients can resume their regular activities immediately following treatment.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared VelaShape for the cellulite treatment and body reshaping markets. Patients at the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery are impressed with the results that VelaShape delivers. Safe and effective for temporary cellulite reduction for Florida women of all skin types and colors, VelaShape can be used to treat cellulite on virtually any area of the body, including the thighs, abdomen, buttocks and hips. Most VelaShape patients begin to see results after 4 treatment sessions, with maximum benefits usually occurring 6 to 8 weeks after the final treatment. The results are easy to maintain with follow-up treatments.
"I've seen firsthand the remarkable improvement in cellulite appearance made possible by VelaShape," says Dr. Wendell Perry, a board certified plastic surgeon who has been practicing plastic surgery for over 30 years. "The fact that the FDA has approved this treatment technology gives it an edge over other cellulite treatments, and our patients are excited to finally find a solution that works."
In addition to being a proven non-surgical cellulite treatment, many Florida women are discovering an added benefit that VelaShape offers: it has also been cleared by the FDA to temporarily reduce thigh circumference. Clinical studies have shown that VelaShape can help patients reduce their thigh circumference by an average of 1 inch. Patients who choose VelaShape to reduce the appearance of cellulite around their thighs can achieve a toned, smoothed and slimmed down figure.
"With summer just around the corner, now is the time of year when many women take a close look at their bodies and find things, like cellulite, that they're ready to change," adds Dr. Harrell. "Luckily, the introduction of VelaShape at the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery means that tackling those pesky pockets of cellulite is easier than ever."
