Bi­jan Beigi talks about a non-in­va­sive way of tack­ling un­wanted cel­lulite


Bi­jan Beigi of­fers his ex­pert opin­ion

Al­though a typ­i­cal English sum­mer means we can never pre­dict what the weather will do, many of us look for­ward to turn­ing off the heat­ing and the prospect of warmer tem­per­a­tures. How­ever, there are some peo­ple for whom the prospect of wear­ing more re­veal­ing clothes or get­ting into a swim­ming cos­tume is not ap­peal­ing.

There are plenty of ex­pres­sions to de­scribe that un­wanted fat around your midriff – mummy tummy, love han­dles, ab flab, back fat, sad­dle bags – but un­til now, it has been no­to­ri­ously hard to shift.

Of course, diet and ex­er­cise are im­por­tant in tack­ling these prob­lem ar­eas, but it is now pos­si­ble to ad­dress body ton­ing with a ra­diofre­quency cel­lulite treatment called Ve­lashape. The treatment is en­tirely non-in­va­sive and uses four modal­i­ties for im­prove­ment of cel­lulite and body ton­ing; bipo­lar ra­diofre­quency for skin tight­en­ing, in­fra-red en­er­gies for shrink­ing fat cells, me­chan­i­cal rollers and a vac­uum suc­tion to help with ton­ing.

Ve­lashape is the only tech­nol­ogy cur­rently on the mar­ket with all four modal­i­ties and can treat tummy, bottom and thighs so it is gen­uinely ef­fec­tive and of­fers a quick fix for stub­born cel­lulite.

The tech­nol­ogy com­bines the in­frared light, bi-po­lar ra­dio fre­quency en­ergy and vac­uum, and works by deep heat­ing the fat cells, their sur­round­ing con­nec­tive tis­sue and the un­der­ly­ing der­mal col­la­gen fi­bres. This type of ef­fi­cient heat­ing and vac­uum stim­u­lates the growth of new and bet­ter col­la­gen and elastin which re­sults in lo­calised re­duc­tion in skin lax­ity, body vol­ume, and an over­all im­prove­ment in skin struc­ture and tex­ture.

Typ­i­cally a course of 6-8 ses­sions is usu­ally re­quired with main­te­nance once ev­ery three to six months de­pend­ing on the sever­ity of the cel­lulite, and there is lit­tle to no down­time af­ter treat­ments.

So whilst we all know that noth­ing can beat a healthy diet and ex­er­cise for feel­ing con­fi­dent and com­fort­able in your own skin, with cutting edge tech­nol­ogy it is also pos­si­ble to de­liver im­pres­sive re­sults through treatment. So don’t suf­fer this sum­mer – book a free con­sul­ta­tion with one of our qual­i­fied ther­a­pists and get ready for the sun!
