What Is VelaShape?

There are many different devices that can address cosmetic concerns and help improve your appearance, but what if there was a device that could help you accomplish three goals during one single session? At Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Waltham, MA, we want to introduce you to a treatment called VelaShape, a multi-platform device that utilizes vacuum technology, radiofrequency energy, and infrared light to target and improve cellulite, fat, and loose skin.

What Is VelaShape?

VelaShape is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that can eliminate cellulite and also tighten the skin and treat stubborn fat cells. During the treatment, the anti-cellulite device will use radiofrequency energy, vacuum technology, and infrared light to heat the skin and deeper layers to increase collagen and elastin production to ultimately improve the appearance of cellulite by addressing it at the source.

How Does It Work?

During a treatment session, your technician will apply the device to your desired treatment area. As the vacuum technology gently suctions your skin into the treatment head, a combination of radiofrequency energy and infrared light will heat the layers of skin where cellulite forms, just below the skin’s surface, to stimulate a bodily response that will result in increased collagen and elastin.

What Areas Does It Treat?

This treatment isn’t limited to one body area but instead can target some of the most common areas where cellulite forms, including the arms, inner and outer thighs, abdomen, flanks, neck, chin, and other body areas. If you have a specific area that you would like to treat that isn’t listed, you can discuss it with one of our experts during your initial consultation to find out if this treatment can help you reach your aesthetic goals.

What Can I Expect From the Treatment Process?

Once you undergo this treatment, you can expect to see the best results within six sessions. While it does take time for the body to increase collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of the skin to improve the appearance of cellulite, your body will respond to the treatment, and new collagen and elastin will form. You’ll see gradual results over time, as well as some immediate improvements in the appearance and health of your skin.

Is It Painful?

This treatment is completely painless. Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a warm massage. You won’t need any numbing cream or pain medication to make it through the treatment because it won’t cause you any pain. All you have to do is show up at our office, ready to target and eliminate cellulite and experience all the benefits that come after completing the recommended number of treatments.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

You can expect to see visibly less cellulite after undergoing the recommended number of treatments. Most patients need a series of six treatments to achieve the best results. We’ll evaluate your problem areas in person during your consultation before creating a treatment plan that’s right for you.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Once you undergo the recommended number of treatment sessions to target your specific areas of concern, you can expect to see some significant invisible improvements in the appearance of your cellulite. You’ll have noticeably smoother and healthier-looking skin that looks and feels tighter. Those dimples indicative of cellulite that resemble the texture of an orange peel will be much less visible.

This is due to an increase in collagen and elastin and the deeper layers of the skin. This treatment is designed to help strengthen the foundation of the skin and, in doing so, target cellulite at its source. With regular maintenance treatments, you can help maintain a smooth, tight, uniform skin texture that will help you feel more confident in swimsuits, regular clothing, and in everyday life.

What Are the Benefits?

VelaShape is a powerful, non-invasive treatment that is helping patients everywhere finally target that cellulite that has been keeping them from looking and feeling their best for years. If you’re tired of wasting time and money on ineffective cellulite products, at-home DIY treatments, or topical solutions that don’t deliver results, you are going to love VelaShape.

This treatment is effective, non-invasive, and will deliver results. It operates according to natural scientific principles. By increasing collagen and elastin production, it works by strengthening the structure of the skin, thereby reducing cellulite.

It’s Non-Invasive

This treatment is completely non-invasive. It doesn’t require any surgical techniques, incisions, or medications. Instead, it uses a non-invasive treatment device to effectively target and improve the appearance of cellulite, skin laxity, and general skin health.

It doesn’t require any injections or invasive techniques to target cellulite. All you have to do is lay back and relax as the technician performs the treatment that will help improve the appearance of your cellulite and your sense of confidence in your appearance.

It’s a Quick Treatment

If you don’t have a lot of extra time in your schedule to spend on cosmetic treatments but still want to undergo a treatment that delivers noticeable results, this is the perfect option. Not only is this treatment non-invasive, but appointment times are relatively quick. VelaShape treatments take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete. If you want to treat multiple areas during your session, you’ll be able to do so, but treating multiple areas may extend your treatment time.

All Skin Types and Tones Qualify for Treatment

There are many different cosmetic treatments that can improve the skin and different areas of the body, but many of them exclude some patients with certain skin types or tones because of safety reasons.

The VelaShape treatment device is not an exclusive device; all different skin types and tones are eligible for this treatment. No one is excluded from undergoing this treatment based on skin type or tone. As long as you meet the other eligibility requirements, your skin type and tone won’t exclude you.

There’s No Downtime

Another one of the benefits of this treatment process is that there isn’t any downtime. As soon as your treatment is over, you can go about your day. You won’t have a list of post-treatment instructions to follow but instead can resume your normal daily activities, go to the gym, or even go out to lunch with friends.

It Can Treat Multiple Body Areas

Depending on your body goals, you can choose to treat one or multiple areas. While treating multiple areas may extend your total treatment time, doing so will also help you reach your ultimate body goals as quickly as possible. Cellulite doesn’t discriminate, and often if you have it in one area, you have it in multiple areas. Our technicians can create a treatment plan that helps address each area that you want to improve when you come in for your consultation.

Who Is a Candidate?

The best candidates for this cellulite reduction treatment are patients with visible cellulite on different areas of their bodies. It’s important to note that this treatment is a cosmetic treatment, not a weight-loss treatment. It’s not designed to help patients lose excess amounts of weight or body fat. Instead, it’s designed to strengthen the skin’s structure to combat and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

The Importance of Having a Specific BMI

While it will deliver noticeable and long-lasting results, maintenance appointments are necessary to help continue to increase collagen and elastin production and maintain the strongest skin foundation. It’s important that qualifying candidates have a BMI Under 30 to achieve the best results. We can assess your BMI during your consultation to confirm that this treatment is the right option for you and will help you reach your goals.

The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Scale

Additionally, the best candidates will fall within stage one or two of the Nurnberger-Muller cellulite classification scale. Those who qualify as stage one candidates will have a dimpled skin texture that appears when pinching the desired treatment area. However, they won’t have any visible dimpling while standing. Those who qualify as stage two candidates will have visible dimpling while standing, but not while lying down.
