Approximately 80% of women over the age of 20 are affected by cellulite regardless of their weight and size. Lean women are just as affected by cellulite as heavier women. Cellulite consists of fat cells trapped within the superficial layers of the skin. The only way to smooth it out is to disrupt the connective tissue bands that hold the fat cells in place. The fat cells settle into the deeper layers and the skin looks smoother and more even. Some people believe that liposuction reduces the appearance of cellulite. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Liposuction actually worsens the appearance of cellulite by removing the underlying fat cells and accentuating the irregularity of the of the skin contour.
What is Velashape?
VelaShape is a non-invasive body shaping treatment used to reduce cellulite, as well as slim the area around the stomach, hips, and thighs.
VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typically 3-5 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.
- The assurance of proven results. With over 10 years of clinical experience, more than 5 million independent treatments, and the most published studies of any medical body shaping device, VelaShape is one of the most recognized non-invasive body shaping treatments on the market today.
- Power and speed. VelaShape can achieve end point temperature in less time, with up to 150 watts of radiofrequency (RF) power. That reduces the time needed for treatment. And it can reduce the number of treatment sessions by up to 75%.
- Comfort. VelaShape procedure is comfortable like hot stone massage.
- Convenience. The VelaShape procedure often takes under an hour.
- All-season treatment. VelaShape can be used on all skin types in any season and any climate.
What areas can be treated?
Cellulite treatment areas could be on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.
How does Velashape work?
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.
VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment. VelaShape uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach.
