The looks have always been important – in all the cultures and all the times the folks who were considered attractive generally enjoyed more and better perks. This century isn’t an exception. We are all convinced that in order to be more or less successful we have to look beautiful. This might not necessarily be completely true – but let’s face it, the looks matter and in some industries or for some people this is in fact the only thing that matter. On the global scale, the business of making people beautiful is one of the leading industries. A lot of people would agree to pay any price to get rid of some wrinkles, remove those scars, reshape their nose or anything else they think would put all their ducks in a row. This is partially why, the scientist continue to work hard on improving the plastic surgery methods. Any break-through not only gives a chance to fight certain diseases, but is also a wonderful money-maker. That’s basically the root of all the problems with the modern practice – you can really improve yourself or you can just be fooled into giving your money away for something that is either dangerous or absolutely ineffective.
One of the biggest segments of plastic operations is anti-cellulite treatments. Of course, it’s going to be one of the biggest segments, since about 80% of women and 10% of men have it. Females are more prone to suffer from it and they are the ones who desperately try to fight it at all costs, which is what makes them vulnerable and easy to fall for everything and anything as long as there is at least a hope to make it go away. Today there are oh so many “miracle” treatments that promise great results. For the most part they are all okay, but ONLY if to do them in a complex with some exercising, dieting, vitamin intake, etc. The cellulite is basically coarse fat compartments under weak, flabby skin. So if you think that you can continue to eat and drink whatever you want, sit around all day long, let some device work on your body and actually expect it to be successful, then you cannot be more wrong. In order to get rid of cellulite one needs to improve the condition of skin and start losing at least some of that extra fat. Different treatments that target only skin, won’t do you any good. Do not pay for those. Ask your doctor for something that can penetrate through skin and move that fat around. Also, stay away from anything that hasn’t been around long enough to get FDA approval and at least five to ten years of testing. But don’t worry – there are a couple of very worthy treatments that you can trust not to do any harm and actually relieve your cellulite condition.
One of them is called VelaSmooth. It is based on a multi-functional device which simultaneously conditions skin and repacks those fat blocks into a way more attractive shape. VelaSmooth is FDA approved and has been under extensive clinical studies which provided solid evidence of actual improvements. The special device utilized for this procedure relies on a something called elos technology. This is a brand name, of course – everything is branded now – for a combination of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy applied at once. On top of this elos energy the VelaSmooth device uses infrared light, negative pressure, and tissue manipulation. All in one treatment. So far it has been receiving positive reviews. The best candidates to receive satisfactory results from this procedure are women in good health, following a healthy lifestyle with 20-30% BMI (Body Mass Index). At least, they are very clear about it. And the treatments do not hurt or cause discomfort, so that’s a plus.
If you have been looking for the ways to do something with your orange peel areas then you have probably had a chance to be introduced to Cellulaze – also, a new, anti-cellulite laser treatment. FDA approved it, however the patients aren’t too happy with it. It is advertised pretty good, so a lot of people try it. First of all, it is a more invasive of non-invasive procedures. It requires tiny incisions to get the stick (it’s quite thin, don’t worry) with the laser tip under your skin so it can literally laser up the epidermic fat. Patients experienced minor bruising and swelling after the treatments. It doesn’t hurt too much, nor it requires any recovery time or procedures, however this is not a fully non-invasive surgery. For some people it does nothing, whatsoever. They keep going and it keeps failing. Others do enjoy some improvements, which sometimes vanish after just a few weeks and sometimes successfully stick around for a long time. This might be because of personal health factors, doctor’s skills and expertise, and of course the technology itself. The cost may vary, and they will tell you that every case has its own estimate. And that’s fine, it’s just when you have gone to a couple of treatments and see nothing but poking spots, it’s time to walk away.
Today there are several liposuction methods that do not involve any lipid suctions. They are called something-assisted liposuction. And waterever is used to allegedly make the fat break down and go away gets in the title. It is often some sort of type of energy – it penetrates the skin, causes fat cells to disintegrate and leave the body. Again, it works for some, and not for others – keep in mind that all of them involve some drainage holes for the broken down fat to drain from your body over time. You’d have to wear pads and change them every so often. It may cost up to several thousand dollars. They say, that you can get quite noticeable results from a water-assisted liposuction – it is called body jet. Patients say it is all about the plastic surgeon doing it – make sure you find a knowledgeable expert for this procedure.
