Velashape Cellulite Reduction

velashape 3 machine
New and improved VelaShape III

Velashape is the first and only FDA approved, non-surgical alternative for cellulite and circumference reduction, with a new skin-tightening benefit. The secret behind Velashape is elos. This unique technique combines powerful energies to precisely target and heat fatty tissues within the treatment area. There are four key elements to this groundbreaking technology that combine to ensure noticeable results:

 
  • Bi-polar radio frequency
  • Infrared light
  • Tissue mobilization
  • Suction

These four components produce heat, which stimulate the tissues with liberation of fat and mobilization of extra fluid in the skin. This technique enhances the deposition of new collagen to provide a smooth surface on the skin while re-contouring the cellulite problem area.

This procedure works best for individuals who are already at, or near their target weight range and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. This procedure does not remove fat. It shrinks the fat cells by heating them to a specific temperature. For this reason, it is not an alternative for liposuction, but can be performed following liposuction to enhance the outcome of that procedure. The appearance of cellulite will be minimized and there will be a noticeable improvement in skin firmness. Many individuals notice a decrease in their circumferential size.

Bi-weekly treatments (1 treatment every 2 weeks) are performed, and a maintenance treatment is recommended every three months to maintain the outcome. Since this procedure will also flush out toxins and excess body fluid, plenty of water should be consumed on the day of the procedure. Aerobic or strenuous workouts are not advised on procedure day. Skin should be well hydrated by using a body moisturizer for at least 3 weeks prior to treatment. A consultation is recommended to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

On what body areas can I be treated?
Any areas on the body that have a moderate to extreme amount of cellulite may be treated. The thigh and buttock area may also be treated for circumferential reduction. 

How quickly will I notice a change?
Most individuals begin to see improvement by the third treatment, although it is not uncommon to notice minimal improvement after the first treatment. The final outcome from this procedure will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session.

Is the treatment safe?
FDA has cleared this device as safe and effective for all skin types and colors. Short term effects can include mild bruising, blisters or redness. Although tanned skin may be treated with this device, we recommend your tan not be a “fresh” tan. In other words, for the best outcome you should wait two weeks after you have received the tan to begin this treatment. We do not recommend the use of self-tanning creams during these treatments. It is best to wait until you have completed the series to use self-tanners, or be sure to exfoliate it from the skin at least one week prior to your treatment (which would be difficult to do since you are having the procedure performed bi-weekly for the initial series).

How do I maintain my results?
Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended you have maintenance treatments every three months. Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly. Fluctuations in weight may affect your outcome.

Does the treatment hurt?
Most patients claim that the treatment is pleasant, followed by a deep heating sensation beneath their skin. It should feel like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience t warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear red for a several hours.

What are the VelaShape advantages compared to other treatments for cellulite?
Our advantage is our technology. Today, there are no other methods available that include a combination of  Bi-Polar RF, Infrared Light, Vacuum and Mechanical Massage like VelaShape.
