VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses a combination of technologies to contour the body, reduce cellulite, and tighten the skin. The treatment combines suction, infrared light, and bipolar radiofrequency energy to melt fat cells, stimulate collagen fibers, and reduce cellulite and the circumference of the treatment site. VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment and is ideal for clients who are at or very close to their healthy body weight.
How Does Velashape Work?
VelaShape technology works with a combination of 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, causing deep stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in a localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
The suction, which is accompanied by rollers, draws the target area closer to the infrared and radiofrequency energy. The rollers massage the area while the infrared and radiofrequency energy melts the fat cells that the body’s excretory system then expels. VelaShape also stimulates the collagen fibers, so they contract and pull the skin tighter.
What are the Benefits of the Velashape Treatment?
VelaShape treatment offers several benefits, including:
Fat reduction: VelaShape III combines suction, infrared light, and bipolar radiofrequency energy to melt fat cells, which the body’s excretory system then expels. The treatment can reduce the circumference of the treatment site, making the client slimmer.
Cellulite reduction: VelaShape III can reduce the appearance of cellulite by reducing connective tissue fibrous bands, stimulating lymphatic drainage and blood circulation, and improving skin texture.
Skin tightening: VelaShape III stimulates collagen production by gently heating the skin and tissue. As a result, the skin becomes tauter without the dimpling effect of cellulite.
Non-invasive: VelaShape III is a non-invasive treatment that does not require surgery or anesthesia. It is an outpatient procedure, and there is little-to-no recovery time.
Versatile: VelaShape III can be used on many parts of the body, including the arms, thighs, buttocks, flank, and abdomen.
Improves skin tone: VelaShape III gently heats the skin and tissue to stimulate collagen production, which can improve skin tone.
What are the Areas of the Fat that Velashape can Target?
VelaShape can target various areas of the body. The treatment is designed to contour the body, reduce cellulite, and tighten the skin. It can be used to target fat in a variety of areas, including:
How long does it take to see Results from Velashape Treatment?
The time it takes to see results from VelaShape treatment can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated. However, most people see noticeable results after 4-6 treatments.
The first few treatments will help to break down fat cells and stimulate collagen production. The collagen production will continue for several weeks after the treatment, which is why you may not see the full results until 10 weeks after the treatment. It is important to note that VelaShape is not a permanent solution. The results will gradually fade over time, especially if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle. To maintain your results, you should eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and avoid smoking.
Are there any Risks Associated with Velashape Treatment?
VelaShape is considered a safe and non-invasive procedure with minimal risks when it’s done by an experienced provider. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with VelaShape treatment. Some of the potential risks and side effects of VelaShape treatment include:
Scabbing or blistering of the skin
What is the Velashape Treatment Duration?
The duration of VelaShape treatment can vary depending on the individual and the treatment area. Here are some general guidelines:
The typical session lasts 15-30 minutes per treatment area depending on the patient’s needs and body concerns.
Each appointment is scheduled approximately two weeks apart from each other to allow the body to heal and produce more collagen.
Depending on the treatment area, the procedure can last for anywhere between twenty minutes to two hours.
Typically, four to six initial treatments are needed for the desired result, and maintenance every three months will be needed for upkeep.
VelaShape treatments are meant to be long-lasting, with results lasting between three to four months.
VelaShape lasts, on average, between six months to one year. However, this will depend on the patient’s lifestyle. If the patient follows a healthy lifestyle, the results can last between six months to one year.
Can Velashape Treatment be Combined with Other Body Contouring Procedures?
Yes, VelaShape treatment can be combined with other body contouring procedures for greater fat cell reduction and more dramatic results. For example, VelaShape is often used post-liposuction to tighten the skin and speed up the recovery process. VelaShape can also be used in combination with CoolSculpting to tighten and smooth the skin post-treatment.
The combination of these treatments offers three key benefits that set them apart from other non-invasive treatments: fat reduction, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. It’s important to note that combining treatments should only be done under the guidance of a qualified healthcare provider to ensure safety and effectiveness.
How many sessions of Velashape treatment are recommended for optimal results?
The number of VelaShape treatment sessions recommended for optimal results varies depending on the individual and the area being treated. However, most people need 4-6 treatments for optimal results.
The first few treatments will help to break down fat cells and stimulate collagen production. The collagen production will continue for several weeks after the treatment, which is why you may not see the full results until 10 weeks after the treatment.
What are the Non-Surgical Velashape Treatment Alternatives?
there are non-surgical alternatives to VelaShape treatment. Here are some of the alternatives:
TriActive: TriActive is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser energy, cooling, and massage to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin texture.
CoolSculpting: CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells. The body then naturally excretes the dead cells over time.
Endermologie: Endermologie is a non-invasive treatment that uses a mechanical massage to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin texture.
Ultrashape: Ultrashape is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy to destroy fat cells. The body then naturally excretes the dead cells over time.
SculpSure: SculpSure is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser energy to destroy fat cells. The body then naturally excretes the dead cells over time.
