If you had to choose just one area to improve, would you pick your body or your face? According to a new survey of over 1,000 American women commissioned by Syneron Medical, 70% of the women in the study said they are most worried about developing a tummy bulge, as opposed to only 50% who said they are worried about wrinkles and/or fine lines.

“It has been a long-held belief that a flawless complexion represents youth and beauty. With the focus on shapely bodies, this perception has shifted beyond a perfect face to include the perfect smooth body as well,” stated Tina Alster, M.D., board-certified dermatologist and director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C.

The survey went on to discover that 73% of the participants admitted that if they were to come into some money, they would be more likely to invest in a better body shape before a designer wardrobe.

Unfortunately, for many women, despite Zumba® and carb avoidance, certain body areas still trouble them. Enter VelaShape® by Syneron, which is the first and only FDA cleared non-surgical treatment clinically proven to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite while smoothing and shaping the areas that diet and exercise can’t always fix – hips, thighs, buttocks, for example.

Getting that perfect shape may be closer than you think. VelaShape® has teamed up with fashion label Teri Jon® by Rickie Freeman to sponsor the Little Vela Dress Contest. Offering a $5,000 makeover to one lucky winner, the grand prize includes a series of four customized VelaShape® treatments with a Syneron physician; a trip to New York City to meet Teri Jon® founder and designer Rickie Freeman; a customized “Little Vela Dress” fitted just for you; hair and makeup done by a celebrity stylist; and a professional photo shoot – in her glam showroom.

Ten runners-up will be chosen at random to win a $100 eGiftcard from www.terijon.com.

The objective of the Little Vela Dress Contest is to inspire women to feel confident in a holiday wardrobe classic: the Little Black Dress. “The Little Black Dress is every woman’s go to outfit. It can take you from daytime to a night on the town with great style,” stated Ms. Freeman of Teri Jon®.

The Little Vela Dress Contest runs until November 30 through the VelaShape® Facebook page. To enter, all you have to do is Like VelaShape® on Facebook, post a photo of yourself in your own Little Black Dress, and tell VelaShape® what areas of your body you love most, and what areas you might want to improve.

If you have been longing for a body like J-Lo, Giselle or Beyoncé, the Little Vela Dress contest is for you.
