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.
â€œIt 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,â€ 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 ZumbaÂ® and carb avoidance, certain body areas still trouble them. Enter VelaShapeÂ® 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 canâ€™t always fix – hips, thighs, buttocks, for example.
Getting that perfect shape may be closer than you think. VelaShapeÂ® has teamed up with fashion label Teri JonÂ® 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 VelaShapeÂ® treatments with a Syneron physician; a trip to New York City to meet Teri JonÂ® 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. â€œThe 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,â€ stated Ms. Freeman of Teri JonÂ®.
The Little Vela Dress Contest runs until November 30 through the VelaShapeÂ® Facebook page. To enter, all you have to do is Like VelaShapeÂ® on Facebook, post a photo of yourself in your own Little Black Dress, and tell VelaShapeÂ® 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 BeyoncÃ©, the Little Vela Dress contest is for you.
