What is VelaShape III?
The VelaShape III system is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that is FDA-cleared for temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite as well as thigh and abdominal circumferences. VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typcially 3 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.
How Does it Work?
VelaShape technology causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating, combined with the vacuum, stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin, which results in localized reduction in skin laxity and body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture…aka tightens up your skin!
What Can I Expect?
After determining if you are a good candidate for VelaShape, you and our Doctor will develop a plan tailored to your goals, body and budget. During the procedure, the technician will apply a special lotion to the selected area and deliver the treatment while you relax in our comfortable patient chair, have a snack, catch up on your favorite TV show, or even take a nap! Most patients describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage, although some discomfort is not uncommon.
After the Procedure
The VelaShape III procedure is completely non-invasive, so there is typically no downtime. Patients generally resume their normal activities immediately following their treatment. Some patients report a warm sensation and/or pinkish appearance at the treatment area that can last for a few hours following the treatment. You will notice gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite and circumference. Optimal results are typically achieved after a series of 4-6 treatments.
