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. Cellulite treatment areas on the thighs, buttocks, love handles and abdomen can provide dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime. The results are:
- Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
- Circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area.
VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment, rather it tightens and contours. It combines 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 the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
The Ideal VelaShape patient is someone with a BMI of less than 30, who has no dimpling while standing or lying down, but the pinch test reveals the “orange peel” appearance; or has an “orange peel” appearance while standing, but not lying down. It is safe and effective for all skin types and colors.
You can expect improvement in the treated areas gradually. For many patients, visible results will appear around week 2, and final results are evident at 10 weeks, but results will vary from patient to patient. Clinical studies report a circumferential reduction in the stomach, after a single treatment, of one dress size or about 2.5 cm. Maintenance treatments are recommended along with a healthy diet and exercise.
VelaShape is now the best technology FDA-cleared for reduction of cellulite and circumferential reduction.
If you desire to contour your body, 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.
