VelaShape™ Cellulite Treatment

VelaShape™ by Syneron is a new effective treatment for cellulite. This non-surgical FDA-cleared technology improves body shape and tone by treating both the deeper tissue and the upper layers of the skin. The results are a measurable reduction in fat layers, circumference and the appearance of cellulite.

VelaShape is a non-surgical, no-downtime, and virtually painless treatment for body reshaping and cellulite treatment, with proven results in as few as 4 treatment sessions. (This treatment replaces VelaSmooth as it is more effective and requires a much shorter treatment plan.)

Below are some common questions and answers regarding VelaShape.

How does VelaShape work?

VelaShape™ uses combined energies known as elo¯s™ to precisely target and heat fatty tissues within the treatment area. In addition, the vacuum and tissue manipulation evens out the skin to reveal a smoother, tighter figure.

How quickly will I notice a change?

Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment — with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, firmer and tighter. Results in Circumference and Cellulite Reduction will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session.

How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?

In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of about 1 inch post treatment series. In clinical trials, the range of Circumferential Reduction was between 0.5-3 inches.

Is VelaShape treatment safe?

The FDA found and cleared the device as safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short or long-term health effects.

Does the Velashape hurt?

Most patients find VelaShape™ treatments comfortable — like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear more red than usual for several hours.

How do I improve and maintain the VelaShape results?

Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
