Featured Testimonial

“Before I had my son I was a size 6 and now a year later I am a size 10. What surprised me about my post baby-body was my stomach – it won’t go away. I tried to lose weight the old fashioned way through diet and exercise. No matter how many crunches I did the stomach flab just won’t go away! I wanted to get back into my old clothes again and feel like myself again.

With the VelaShape treatments I definitely think it worked to get rid of the flab and inches on my abdomen area. I feel great! The treatment was amazing! I would definitely recommend VelaShape cellulite treatments to my friends. I am smaller than I was before I had the baby!”

What are the treatments like?

VelaShape treatments are safe, effective and virtually painless. Generally there is no discomfort and treatments are compared to a warm, deep muscle massage. The light energy pre-heats the treatment area. Simultaneously, a gentle suction aids in the deep penetration of the radio frequency energy into the fat tissue. This redistributes and increases the metabolism of the fat tissue, and also improves circulation. There is mild pinkness in the skin and the skin feels warm for a short time. In rare cases, some patients will experience bruising if they are very prone to this. Each treatment at our clinic takes approximately 1 hour.

What is the Post Treatment Care?

There is no downtime with VelaShape and all activities can resume as normal. The area that was treated might feel slightly warm and somewhat tender for a few hours after the procedure.

How many treatments are necessary?

The initial treatment regimen for Velashape is typically once a week for 6 weeks to reach the desired outcome. The number of treatments required can vary according to the severity of the excess fat or cellulite. One treatment every 3-4 months is usually recommended to avoid recurrence of new fat or cellulite.

What is the average amount of improvement that studies have demonstrated?

Studies have shown that nearly everyone will see a noticeable improvement after an initial series of treatments. Studies have proven that an average improvement for all patients on the appearance of cellulite was at least 65 per cent. Hip girth was also reduced and all patients reported feeling skin contraction as a result of the treatments. Visible changes are often noticeable after 1 or 2 treatments. There is usually visible and measurable contouring of the lumps and bumps of the skin as evidenced by post-treatment photos, girth measurements, and what most patients love the most….how their favorite pair of jeans seem to fit much better! Men also seem to respond very well to VelaShape treatments for contouring of torso and abdominal areas.
