What is Velashape®?
VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction*. VelaShape® enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typically 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.
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.
Which areas can be treated with VelaShape®?
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.
Is VelaShape® treatment right for me?
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. The ideal VelaShape® patient is someone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2. Ask your doctor to see if you're a candidate for VelaShape® treatments.
The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Scale
NO dimpling while the patient is standing or lying down, but the pinch test reveals the "orange peel" appearance.
"Orange peel" dimpling appears spontaneously when standing up, but NOT when lying down.
"Orange peel" dimpling appears spontaneously both when standing up AND lying down.
*The VelaShape® III system is FDA-cleared for temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite and temporary reduction of thigh and abdominal circumferences.
