Velasmooth – Syneron

Anti-aging | Firming | Lifting | Tightening | Wrinkle Reduction | Skin Rejuvenation | Cellulite Reduction | Toning | Reduced Circumference

Using a break-through technology called elόs, Velasmooth combines infrared, radio frequency, vacuum and mechanical rollers to treat the whole body, firming and toning your skin, to reveal a smoother, tighter figure, resulting in centimetre loss.

Clinically proven, Velasmooth is an FDA cleared device to safely deliver heat into fatty tissue to reduce the volume and improve the appearance, thus effectively reducing cellulite.

What is elόs technology?

Widely viewed as a revolutionary advance in cosmetic medicine, elōs (electro-optical synergy) technology has firmly established itself as the premier technology in the global aesthetic device field. Pioneered by Syneron Medical, Ltd. and its co-developer Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Ph.D., elōs technology has become very popular not only because of the superior clinical outcomes and high safety profile associated with treatments, but also because elōs can address the limitations of other currently available treatment modalities.

elōs technology harnesses the therapeutic potential of both bipolar radiofrequency (RF) and optical energy (IR) – laser or light. By combining these energy sources, optical energy which is absorbed by epidermal melanin, can be lowered to preheat target tissue with reduced risk of epidermal damage. RF energy is driven to the deeper preheated structures, producing uniform heat at a controlled depth in the dermal layers, without injury to the epidermis. Both energies create a thermal wound at the targeted area for treatment that results in increased thickness in the epidermis and more compact collagen bundles throughout the dermis.

Benefits

The synergy of the elόs technology provides optimal results for the treatment of cellulite and contouring:

Expected result: Cellulite and Circumference Reduction and Skin Tightening

  • Infrared Light – Heats the tissue up to 2mm depth, leading to skin toning and firming through cellulite reduction.
  • Radio Frequency – Heats the tissue up to 20mm depth, delivering higher penetration depth and higher peak temperature in the subcutaneous tissue.
  • Vacuum – Provides a precise demarcated heating effect for improved circulation and fibroblast stimulation.
  • Massage – Softens tissue and facilitates lymphatic drainage.

Velasmooth treatments varies from a comfortable, warm, deep, soothing tissue massage to a slight level of discomfort due to the massage and vacuum actions, leaving warmth in the area for about 30 min after the treatment. Due to the heat generated by the probe, your skin can also be red and / or slightly swollen – this will dissipate after a short while. Temporary bruising or the formation of small red/purple spots caused by bleeding into the skin can also occur.

  • Month 1 after treatments: 2 x maintenance treatments (1 treatment every 2 weeks)
  • Month 2 after treatments: 1 x maintenance treatments (1 treatment per month)

Thereafter 1 x maintenance treatment every 3 months or as and when necessary
