It is no wonder that cosmetic procedures are generally associated with the female gender. There is a widely-held belief that, as women age, they tend to show it whereas men become more handsome and distinguished.
Of course, men do show signs of aging in the physical-sense, but they may not be as apparent or widespread as they are in women. Nonetheless, men are shattering the stereotypes and electing for cosmetic procedures previously believed to be intrinsic to women only, at an increasing rate. One of the most popular procedures is VelaShape III.
We, at White Tea Med Spa, wish to enhance our customers’ knowledge of VelaShape III treatments for men so that there is no confusion about the procedure, its benefits, and lasting effects.
What Is VelaShape III?
The latest update to the procedure – VelaShape III – is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that utilizes the science of infrared, bi-polar radio frequency, and vacuum technology to heat fat cells at a level of up to 15 millimeters in depth.
As the cells (adipocytes) are heated and stimulated through massage, there is an immediate increase in circulation. Not only that, cell metabolism and collagen depositing processes become ignited. The result is softer, tighter skin and improved appearance overall.
If you’re being treated specifically for cellulite, you may or may not notice a difference immediately. In general, VelaShape III treatments consist of three to five sessions that last approximately 30 minutes in duration.
Take a closer look at how each technological component works:
- A vacuum causes tissue to rise toward the surface of the skin
- Infrared light heats the targeted area
- Bi-polar radio frequency energy distributes the heat to avoid damaging your skin while minimizing the appearance of fat stores
Misconceptions About VelaShape III for Men
While it may seem unlikely for men to volunteer for this procedure seeing as how they typically don’t have cellulite to the same degree women do, body contouring is highly sought after for many different skin conditions and medical reasons.
VelaShape III is considered a cosmetic procedure, but it’s not just about looking better in swim trunks.
For example, men who take prescription medication such as antidepressants or blood pressure drugs may develop gynecomastia, or “man boobs.” Drastic unsightly changes in appearance can quickly cause self-esteem issues including anxiety and depression. Men often seek body contouring for its positive mental effects first, and thereafter, benefit from the physical benefits that follow.
Another misconception is that spas are solely for women. Rest assured, we’re men frequent our spa for VelaShape III treatment, as well as other spa services, on a regular basis. The relaxing environment in which procedures are administered knows no gender.
Are You a Good VelaShape III Candidate?
If you’ve ever felt self-conscious or frustrated by your body’s inability to shed those last few pounds or tighten up despite rigorous exercise, you may be an ideal candidate for cellulite treatments. Other motivations for visiting our spa include:
- Desire for healthier, tighter skin
- Reduced appearance of scars and blemishes
- Detoxification and lower rate of water retention
- Improved appearance for special events such as weddings, family portraits, etc.
- Desire to offset negative physical side effects of medication
- Spot treatment for male trouble zones such as buttocks, thighs, stomach and chest
- Relief from muscle aches and spasms
- Lymphatic massage and drainage due to swelling
What you can expect from VelaShape III
Since the VelaShape III procedure is non-surgical, there’s little to worry about when scheduling a treatment. While we’ll make every effort to ensure your comfort, the procedure is so quick and efficient you will hardly have time for apprehensive thoughts or fears.
Former clients liken the level of discomfort to general muscle soreness caused by working out. You may feel a little sore or experience warm sensations a few hours after leaving the spa, but the effects are short-lived. Skin may have a pink tone and, at worst, display light bruising.
VelaShape III Before & After
Though the procedure is safe and fast acting, it is not a recommended replacement for long term weight loss. In order to achieve the best results, follow up procedures may be necessary. Like any cosmetic practice, our professional team members will encourage you to maintain a healthy regimen of diet and exercise afterward for optimal results.
