VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring and cellulite reduction procedure. In about three treatment sessions, VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well-shaped body. VelaShape combined infrared light, radio frequency energy, and a vacuum to heat the fat cells and stimulate the growth of new cells and elastin. This results in a reduction of skin laxity and body volume and an improvement in skin structure and texture (reduction of cellulite).
VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment but it can be used on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen to improve skin tone and reduce cellulite…
Benefits of VelaShape:
Because it is non-surgical and non-invasive, there is no downtime associated with VelaShape. Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and compare the treatment to a warm deep-tissue massage. You may experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours.
Reduction of cellulite
Once cellulite forms, it’s nearly impossible to get rid of. Cellulite treatment areas could be on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime. On average the abdomen takes about 4 treatments to see results, where more stubborn areas of cellulite may take up to 10. The firming of the skin allows for long-term results plus additional short-term results, which makes maintenance sessions quite popular right before a vacation.
Improvement of skin tone
In addition to cellulite reduction, VelaShape also improves skin texture and firmness. The heat used during a VelaShape procedure stimulates collagen production and gives more youthful looking skin.
Ability to combine with other procedures
Patients who have had previous body contouring procedures such as liposuction choose VelaShape to touch-up their results without undergoing any additional surgery. It’s a great way to maintain results.
VelaShape can be used on any skin tone or type. Candidates for VelaShape include men and women with loose skin on the hips, abdomen, legs, thighs, or buttocks or visible cellulite.
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.
