How does VelaShape improve the appearance of cellulite?
The VelaShape combines four unique mechanisms: gentle light, radiofrequency, vaccum suction and mechanical massage. While the infrared light and radiofrequency energies work to increase the metabolism of the cells within the fatty layer and reduce the size of fat cells, the mechanical rollers and vacuum increase blood vessel diameter allowing for increased circulation to the applied area, improved lymphatic drainage, reduced dimpling and increased smoothness.
What results can one expect from VelaShape treatments?
Regular VelaShape treatments show spectacular results. Patients notice a gradual reduction in cellulite and an overall firmer and smoother appearance in treated areas such as the thighs, buttocks, hips, back, stomach and upper arms. Results are first noted between treatments 4-6 but many patients notice improvements as early as the first visit.
How often are treatments performed?
VelaShape treatments should be performed once a week for at least 8-12 weeks. Maintenance treatments may be scheduled on a once per month basis in order to maintain achieved results.
