Post Pregnancy Body Shaping

Benefit from post pregnancy body shaping treatment to stay fit

It is no secret that new mothers all over the world continue to face a unique series of physical and emotional challenges once their baby is born. These challenges include dramatic hormonal fluctuations, disruption of sleep and even cosmetic changes to the body which can include loose skin, excess water retention, muscular separation, increase in body fat & size and even cellulite appearance in new areas. Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of these physical changes is that in many cases, diet and exercise alone are not enough to return the body back to its beautiful pre-pregnancy shape.

What is interesting to note is a recent study which was published by M/A/R/C Research where approximately 500 women who had a child within the last 8 years were surveyed. These women were asked which parts of their bodies were of most concern, what caused this concern, and what lifestyle changes these women had made since having children. The astounding results speak for themselves:

  • 71% of new mothers reported that they felt less physically attractive after having their baby.
  • Women reported that even if they were able to lose some or all of their pregnancy weight, 88% could not get their pre-baby stomach back.
  • 48% of women added oversized clothing to their wardrobe after having a baby.
  • On average, women felt that they needed to lose two dress sizes to reach their ideal shape.
  • What can we do about it?

    Until recently, options for postpartum mothers included having to undergo expensive and risky surgical procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, and ineffe ctive fad treatments to help improve symptoms. At Melbourne Cellulite Treatment, we are proud to be able to offer a safe, non-invasive and effective treatment to help mothers restore their body after baby.

    The VelaShape II is a medical grade device, which has been proven worldwide as the gold standard for treating cellulite and body contouring. It is the only device in the world to have clearance for treating cellulite and reducing the circumference of fat tissue by both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) . This is a very important factor to consider when looking at treatment options as these certifications and clearances are what ensure you receive not only an effective treatment, but also a safe one.

    How does the VelaShape II work?

    The science behind the VelaShape II device is clinically backed by studies and cosmetic doctors worldwide, and is the most effective and preferred method of body contouring and re-shaping. The reason for this lies in the four patented technologies which have been designed synergistically to give dramatic results with as little as 6-10 treatments. A video detailing its efficacy and mode of action can be found on our cellulite reduction page.

    Synergistic Use of Energies

    The VelaShape II device employs multiple modes of treatment:

  • Infrared light heats the tissue at a depth of up to 3 mm
  • Radio frequency heats tissue at a depth of 2 to ~20 mm
  • Vacuum +/- massage mechanisms enable precise targeting of energy to the tissue
  • Massage assists with lymphatic drainage, tissue manipulation and blood flow
  • What is Body Shaping?

    Body Contouring or shaping is achieved by treating the structure and function of superficial connective tissues. This leads to a phenotypic result of circumferential and cellulite reduction with overall reshaping of the treated area. It is a deep, therapeutic treatment which is painless and comfortable. There is no downtime and in most cases results can be seen immediately. Our medical grade device allows us to heat tissue effectively meaning shortened treatment times with greater efficacy.
