Learn how VelaShape III treatments can help you, available now at Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics in Cerritos, CA!
How Does It Work?
VelaShape III targets fat cells by safely heating the treatment area through a combination of radiofrequency, infrared light energy, and vacuum technology. By eliminating fat cells, the treatment aids in reducing body circumference and improving the appearance of cellulite. In addition to body contouring, VelaShape III also helps to improve blood circulation and relieve minor aches and muscle spasms.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you already follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen, but are still burdened by pockets of stubborn fat, you’re likely a good candidate for VelaShape III body contouring.
The VelaShape III procedure is ideal for those looking to improve their shape and reduce fat around their stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms, and mid-to-lower back. It can also be beneficial for athletes or individuals who exercise frequently, as it can help relieve sore, achy muscles.

What Should I Expect During Treatment?
VelaShape III sessions take about 15-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Following an initial consultation, your Belle Vie technician can give you a more specific time estimate after evaluating the treatment area(s). During your procedure, vacuum technology will be used to maximize the skin’s exposure to the device’s radiofrequency and infrared light heat. Some patients may find this to be uncomfortable; if that occurs, the technician can adjust the treatment perameters to improve comfort levels.
Is There Any Recovery or Downtime Needed?
VelaShape III is a non-invasive procedure and requires no downtime following treatment. You are free to return to normal activities immediately after your appointment. Some patients may experience redness and mild bruising at the treatment site due to the combined heat and suction, however this should resolve within a few days.
How Soon Can I Expect to See Results?
You can expect to see noticeable results after 3 treatments spread out over the course of 6 weeks. However, your best results will be visible at the 12-week mark after 6 treatments. Results have been shown to last for up to 12 months. To maintain your results, it’s recommended that you undergo a VelaShape III treatment every 3 months.
