How does VelaShape™ work?
VelaShape™ uses combined energies known as elos 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 1 inch post treatment. In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5 - 3 inches.
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short or long-term health effects.
Most patients find VelaShape™ 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 red for several hours.
How do I improve and maintain 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.
The Beauty of a VelaShape™ Treatment
80% of all women over the age of 20 have cellulite, regardless of size or shape. Cellulite occurs when fat cells in the deepest layer of skin become over-inflated from an increase in fat storage. The fat cells protrude up through the tissue causing dimpling or a "cottage cheese" appearance.
VelaShape™ is the only FDA cleared treatment that safely delivers heat into the fatty tissue to reduce cellulite and from problem areas.
