Velashape, a noninvasive body shaping treatment, can help quickly; the less-good news is that results are temporary.
While there’s no miracle cure, Velashape combines four different technologies—infrared light (IL), bipolar radio frequency energy (RF), suction, and massage—to help you reach your goal of smoother-looking, less dimpled skin. Just be aware that prolonged results will require maintenance treatments.
Velashape might be a good choice for you if:
- You have areas of cellulite that exercise just won’t fix.
Velashape is intended to treat stubborn dimpled areas under the chin, on the arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and/or abdomen.
- You want a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
The results you get with Velashape are likely to last only a few months.
- You’re okay with a multi-session treatment.
Velashape works over a course of treatments, sometimes six or more, depending on the condition of your skin and the size of the area you want to treat.
During the treatment, you’ll lie on a padded table while the doctor or trained esthetician places the handheld applicator against your skin. You’ll feel a suction sensation while IL light heats the targeted area and RF energy spreads the heat evenly, speeding the action and protecting your skin from overheating.“The combination of the IR and vacuum coupled with RF technologies causes deep heating of the connective tissue, which in return stimulates collagen.
It’s normal for the area to appear red for several hours after the treatment session.
