VelaShape Cellulite Treatment

Velashape logoVelaShape® is an effective treatment for cellulite and body contouring. 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.)

VelaShape treatment areas

Below are some common questions and answers regarding VelaShape.

How does VelaShape work?

VelaShape uses vacuum technology to manipulate your skin while infrared light (IR) and bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energies will gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue. Over the course of your treatments, you will notice a reduction in both circumference and in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas.

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.
