Velashape III

The technology

VelaShape technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

What do I expect from VelaShape treatments?
  • Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
  • Circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area
What is the VelaShape procedure like?

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to 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.

What causes cellulite?

There is no definite explanation for why cellulite occurs. While it may be the result of an unhealthy lifestyle, there may be other causes, including genetics or hormonal changes.

What sort of results can I expect?

In clinical trials, the body contouring power of VelaShape led to a reduction of one whole dress size after treatment.

How quickly will I notice a change after VelaShape?

You will begin to notice gradual improvement of the treated area right away as your skin’s surface starts to feel smoother and firmer. Over time you will also notice a smaller circumference throughout the treated area as well as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite, and best results will be seen at about 10 weeks.

How long do the results last? Are follow-up treatments needed?

Following your treatment regimen, it is recommended that you periodically receive maintenance VelaShape treatments. Like all techniques, invasive or non-invasive, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regimen.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically it takes 3-6 treatments to achieve the best results. It is often possible to substitute one longer treatment session for up to three shorter sessions. Your technician will determine the best treatment plan for you.

Is VelaShape safe?

The VelaShape treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short-term or long-term side effects.

Are VelaShape treatments painful?

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to 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.

How does the Velashape III Work?

Velashape III uses a combination of technologies to contour your body and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Vacuum technology manipulates your skin while infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue.
