One of the most common aesthetic concerns is the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is found most often on the backs of the legs and buttocks. It can occur at any age and body weight, and it affects mainly females.
While cellulite is common, most people have no idea how to remedy it. Fortunately, there is a simple cosmetic procedure that can reduce cellulite dimpling.
Kuma Shape is a body contouring procedure that tightens the skin, shrinks fat deposits, and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Vibrant Rejuvenation offers Kuma Shape treatment to help patients achieve a smoother, more sculpted figure. To learn more, check out this detailed look at the Kuma Shape procedure below.
Body Contouring Procedures
Body contouring procedures are cosmetic treatments that create a more sculpted, toned figure. These procedures are often non-invasive, meaning they don’t require any incisions, sutures, or scarring.
They are also outpatient treatments, allowing patients to return home immediately after treatment and resume their normal activity without any downtime.
What Is Kuma Shape?
Also known as Vela Shape, Kuma Shape is an FDA-approved body contouring and skin tightening treatment. This treatment works to create a more sculpted figure by smoothing cellulite dimples and firming loose skin.
Kuma Shape uses a combination of infrared light, radiofrequency energy, and suction action to stimulate a tightening response in the skin. This leads to a contoured figure with tighter, smoother skin overall.
The Benefits of Kuma Shape
A skin tightening treatment like Kuma Shape offers a number of aesthetic benefits for patients, including:
- Reduction in cellulite dimpling
- Smoothing of skin imperfections
- Tightening of sagging skin
- Firming of loose, aged skin
- Shrinking of fat cells
A major benefit of Kuma Shape is that it acts as a non-invasive option for achieving a slimmer, more contoured shape. Kuma Shape provides patients with a simple procedure that addresses some of the most common cosmetic concerns.
Kuma Shape Candidates
If you are struggling with cellulite, loose skin, or unwanted fat deposits, you may be a candidate for Kuma Shape treatment. Patients who seek this procedure are usually women of various ages. Older women can especially benefit from this treatment, as it tightens skin that has become loose or sagging with age.
The Kuma Shape Process from Beginning to End
When preparing for Kuma Shape or any other skin tightening treatment, you’ll want to know what to expect. Below is a breakdown of the complete Vela Shape body contouring process.
Before scheduling your first Kuma Shape session, our team will ask you to come in for a consultation. We must examine your skin, cellulite, and any fat deposits to see if Kuma Shape is the right treatment for you.
Every patient is different and has their own unique needs. If Kuma Shape is not the best fit for you, we will discuss alternative options that can produce your desired outcome.
Once you have had your consultation appointment, we will be able to move forward with your first Kuma Shape session. In the days leading up to your treatment, you’ll want to remain well-hydrated.
The Kuma Shape technology is more effective when the skin cells are properly hydrated. We recommend increasing your water intake by two to three cups the day before your session.
During your treatment, you will be able to lie down comfortably while our provider operates the handheld Kuma Shape device. This device will emit intense radiofrequency energy deep into the tissue in your problem areas.
While delivering infrared heat and radiofrequency energy into the skin, the Kuma Shape device will also provide a vacuum effect that gently suctions the skin upwards.
When all of these effects happen in conjunction, they produce a smoothing and tightening effect in the skin. The energy and infrared light emitted by the Kuma Shape device will also shrink fat cells. This helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and unwanted fat in the treatment sites.
Patients report that the Kuma Shape procedure is relaxing. You will feel some warmth from the device while your treatment is administered. The entire procedure can take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour to complete. The duration of your session will vary, depending on the areas being treated.
Once complete, you will be able to return home and resume normal activity right away. Body contouring treatments like Kuma Shape generally don’t require any recovery or downtime.
To see optimal results from Kuma Shape, you will need to return for several treatment sessions. We recommend three to four sessions, spaced several weeks apart. After this initial series of treatments, it can take about six to eight weeks to see results. This gives the skin enough time to respond to treatment.
During this period, the fat cells will continue to shrink and the skin will tighten, reducing the appearance of cellulite and dimpling. These results will continue to develop over the next few months, but they will not be permanent without maintenance sessions.
After your first round of treatments, you will be able to maintain your results with just one or two Kuma Shape sessions per year.
