Your patches of cellulite might be hidden under thermals at the moment, but if you want smooth skin during the warmer months then the time to start attacking those lumpy, fat deposits is now.
Cellulite is a condition where the skin looks dimpled and lumpy – which is why it’s also known as orange peel syndrome. The fat cells that cause this appearance are found in the subcutaneous fat tissue and stubbornly remain irrespective of changes to diet and lifestyle. Generally found on the thighs and buttocks, and more common in women than men, the cells can be targeted by a highly effective treatment offered at Hans Place Practice – VelaShape 3. This roller-head device uses a combination of infrared light, radio frequency energy and vacuum to reduce the appearance of cellulite and smooth skin. While results can be seen after just one treatment, at least three treatments are usually needed to fully treat a problem area. A gap of a fortnight is needed between each treatment, and the results will last for around 10 months; it can be topped up as needed. “There is no downtime or significant discomfort,” explains Dr Comins.
