How does VelaShape™ work?

Frequently Asked Questions
What is cellulite?
Cellulite occurs primarily in women but sometimes in men as well. Cellulite is caused by uneven tension within the hypodermal layer of fat, creating an uneven skin surface and dimpling. Hypertrophied adipocytes, trapped lymph and poor circulation all contribute to the cellulite phenomenon.
How does the VelaShape II improve the appearance of cellulite?
The VelaShape II combines gentle light and radio frequency energies (elōs™) with mechanical rollers and vacuum suction to manipulate the superficial fat tissue layer that contributes to cellulite. The heat from the light and RF energies increases metabolism of this fatty layer and shrinks the size of fat cells. The mechanical rollers and vacuum suction act on the blood vessels to increase circulation to the local area, as well as massaging the skin to achieve a smoother, less dimpled surface appearance.
How many treatments does VelaShape™ take?
As with most things, treatment varies from client to client; however, most clients require 5-6 treatments. The variation is dependent upon the severity of the cellulite, as more severe cases with deeper pits can require anywhere from 10-15 treatments.
Our clients usually see reduction of the circumference in the first few treatments, and the cellulite reduction happens later in package treatment.
How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?
In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of 1 inch post treatment. In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5 - 3 inches.
What results can one expect from VelaShape II treatment?
Gradual improvement of cellulite in treated areas. Most patients notice re-contouring of areas such as saddlebags, love handles which are measurable by a reduction in circumference or girth. Added benefits of treatment include improved circulation and relief from muscles aches in the treated areas. In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of 1 inch post treatment. In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5 - 3 inches.
How often are treatments performed?
The initial treatment series consists of 4-6 treatment sessions- treatments are performed once a week. Some patients see the improvements as soon as 2- sessions, while others may need the full 4-6 sessions. Maintenance treatments are typically done once a month after the initial series in order to keep up the results achieved. Each treatment session is between 30-60 minutes long, but the time varies depending on a patient's size and how many treatment sites are indicated.
What happens after each treatment?
The treated area may appear flushed or pink from the heat for a short while, and may feel warm for several hours after treatment. Bruising may occur in the treatment area. One can resume normal activities immediately.
How does the patient tolerate VelaShape™ treatments?
Most patients find VelaShape treatments comfortable – like a warm deep tissue massage. There is some pinkness to the skin and the areas feel warm for a short period of time after a completed treatment session. Normal activities may be resumed the same day.
Is treatment with the VelaShape II™ safe?
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin colors and can be performed even on tanned skin. There are no long-term health hazards from light or RF energies. Excessive tanning from the sun, sun-beds, or tanning creams should be avoided two weeks prior to treatment.
How long does VelaShape™ last?
The longevity of VelaShape™ results will largely depend on you. The healthier your lifestyle habits (good weight maintenance, regular exercise, and a nutritious diet), the longer your treatment effects will last.
Who should get VelaShape II™ treatment for cellulite?
