Slim Down Fast Before Hitting The Aisle

So, you're preparing for one of the biggest days of your life. Go, you! Everything has been planned to perfection down to your dress and beauty routine for the day. But, there's one not-so-small issue that's been bothering you: you're not quite as in-shape as you'd like to be.


Brides to be nowadays have busy schedules to deal with and thus, don’t have the time to focus on an intensive workout routine prior to their big day. Additionally, demanding lives make it difficult to stick to a healthy meal regiment without the occasional on-the-run unhealthy meal here or there.


If this lifestyle rings a bell and you see your wedding day fast approaching - it may be time to consider alternative options to feel your most confident and look your best on your big day. Non-invasive body contouring treatments are becoming all the rage among brides wanting to fit perfectly into their dream gown. Below is an example of one of the most popular body contouring options available called Velashape.  


What is Velashape?

Velashape is the secret to having a firmer, more contoured body that celebrities like Kim K and Jennifer Aniston have been using. Velashape reduces cellulite using a non-invasive treatment that simultaneously tightens skin and reduces fat. This includes your buttocks, love handles, tummy, thighs, chin, neck and upper arms. The best part, unlike a procedure such as liposuction there is no surgery, downtime, or scaring involved.


While maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise are always crucial to proper health and long-term weight management, Velashape is a fast, reliable way to slim down on a deadline for an important event. In addition to improving the look of your body, Velashape can also give your confidence a boost and improve your self-esteem. While you can't turn back the clock on your body, you can certainly revitalize it.

How does it work?

You might be wondering how all of this works and what will be happening to your body during the procedure. As mentioned, Velashape is a non-invasive treatment. It's a safe and effective procedure that uses bipolar radio frequency (RF) energy, infrared exposure and mechanical and vacuum massage in order to create a synergistic effect.

The machine heats the fat tissue using RF energy while the vacuum and roller systems massage the area. The fat is gradually removed using controlled bursts of thermal energy. Overall, this will make your skin look smoother and reduce stubborn cellulite. In addition to burning fat cells, the Velashape specialist will also work to contour and enhance your natural shape.

Patients have described their Velashape treatment as being similar to a warm deep tissue massage. The procedure is adjusted to suit your personal comfort level and sensitivity. After all, what feels comfortable for one patient may not feel so comfortable to another.

It's also completely normal for your skin to appear red for a few hours following the treatment. Results typically start to show after the first treatment, however, depending on your body type and cosmetic goals, follow-up treatments are usually required. Once you find a certified Velashape specialist, they will certainly build a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.


Is It Right For Me?


Velashape’s highest success rates come from patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less. While body contouring will not help achieve dramatic weight loss, the treatment will help to improve your overall shape, reduce your BMI and enhance your overall appearance in a short amount of time.


That being said, it is important to understand that the results are less likely to last if you lead a very unhealthy lifestyle. For those looking to lose a significant amount of weight, Velashape will not be worth your while. Instead, start by mastering a regimented exercise routine and maintaining a healthy diet to help achieve your long-term goals.
