What is VelaShape and How Does It Work?

VelaShape is the latest innovation in the world of non-invasive cosmetic procedures. This body contouring treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy, laser energy, and other technologies to sculpt the body. The result is a trimmer and slimmer figure.

What is VelaShape?

VelaShape is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses bipolar radiofrequency energy and infrared light to heat the fat cells and the surrounding dermal collagen fibers and tissues. It also utilizes a vacuum and massage rollers to tighten the skin by stimulating the regeneration of new collagen. VelaShape can be used to remove excess fat from various areas.

This can be described as a product of four technologies that shrink fat cells rather than completely eliminating them. These technologies are:

• Infrared light
• Radiofrequency
• Mechanical massage
• Vacuum suction

This body shaping procedure is gaining popularity because it is non-invasive and is less involved than plastic surgery. Most VelaShape beneficiaries describe the therapy as feeling like a warm, deep tissue massage with a mechanical massage from the rollers, providing incredible relaxation to the patients.

The Procedure

VelaShape is performed in the comfort of our office. While you may experience significant improvement after just a couple of sessions per year, it is generally recommended that you come in for a series of sessions to get the best results. Many patients find the deep heating sensation quite enjoyable. There are no incisions, needles, or anesthesia involved, and the results are generally noticeable in weeks to months. The combination of vacuum suction and massage also improves blood circulation while stimulating collagen production.

Who is the Right Candidate?

VelaShape, like most cosmetic procedures, is not for everyone. It is not designed for weight loss. Instead, it contours the body to eliminate stubborn fat around the waistline and other areas, giving you a thinner and potentially more youthful appearance.

Generally, you should meet the following criteria to qualify for this cosmetic procedure:

• Exhibit signs of cellulite
• Have stubborn fat
• Have loose skin that could use some tightening
