Can Velashape Contouring Make My Clothes Fit Better?

An estimated 85% to 98% of women over the age of 18 have cellulite – which affects women regardless of size, shape, or weight. VelaShape is a non-invasive body shaping treatment to reduce cellulite and slim the stomach, hips, and thighs. Treatment enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well-shaped body in as few as four treatment sessions, making you look and feel more youthful and confident. Though not a weight loss procedure, Velashape reshapes and tones your body and helps you to lose inches from your hips, thighs, and waist. This can make your clothes fit better – particularly skinny jeans and close fitting tops. It will not, however, help you drop several pant sizes! If you desire to contour your body, fit better into clothing, and reduce trouble spots and cellulite that don’t respond to diet and exercise, VelaShape may be a great option. Schedule a consultation with Long Beach’s Laser Skin Care Center to find out if VelaShape is right for you. Ideal candidates have a BMI of less than 30, don’t have severe [...]

What are the Best Options for Non-Invasive Body Contouring?

For a long time, liposuction was the only way to contour the body. An invasive procedure that involves incisions, many people were wary of the scars and recovery time. With advances in technology come many options for non-invasive body contouring. But which ones are the best? UltraShape Power FDA-cleared, UltraShape Power uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat-cell removal. UltraShape destroys the fat cells in the focal area and increases blood circulation and lymphatic system activity to expedite the clearance of the liquefied fat. Targeting unwanted fat, this procedure reduces fat deposits and body circumference, and improves body shape. The body naturally removes these fat cells over a 2-3 week period and most patients see maximum results about 4 weeks after the procedure. The results are long-lasting. VelaShape Also FDA-cleared, VelaShape is a body shaping treatment that reduces cellulite and reduces the size of the stomach, hips, and thighs. Combining infrared light, radiofrequency energy and vacuum technologies to gently deep heat the fat cells, the surrounding connective tissues and underlying dermal collagen fibers. This stimulates [...]

What Is VelaShape and How Is It Different From UltraShape Power?

When it comes to non-invasive body contouring, it seems as though there are endless options available on the market today.  Each body contouring treatment promises inch loss, but they take very different approaches in order to achieve those results.  How do these body contouring treatments work, and how are they so different from one another? To help understand, let’s take a look at two popular non-invasive body contouring procedures: VelaShape and UltraShape Power. VelaShape combines the power of radiofrequency energy with vacuum technology to heat and destroys fat cells underneath the dermis.  In addition to destroying fat cells, radiofrequency helps to heat and trigger collagen production for younger, tighter-looking skin.  By combining these two effects, VelaShape helps to eliminate the appearance of cellulite and promote inch loss around the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and waistline. UltraShape Power uses ultrasound energy to heat and liquefies those same fat cells.  UltraShape Power delivers a bigger punch (clinical trials have shown that it reduces fat cells by up to 32%); however, it’s not as effective at eliminating the appearance of cellulite as VelaShape.  Therefore, [...]
