At Laser Skin Care Center, we offer several non-invasive body contouring treatments to help you look and feel your best for any event big or small. Whether you’d like to say goodbye to cellulite or slim your waistline, treatments can be customized to your individual needs and aesthetic goals. Two of our favorites include VelaShape and UltraShape Power.
- VelaShape is a non-invasive procedure that is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of cellulite and reduce the circumferential size of the cellulite on the stomach, hips, buttocks, and thighs. VelaShape combines infrared light, radiofrequency wavelengths, and vacuum technologies to smooth, tighten, and contour skin.
- UltraShape Power is designed to selectively target diet and exercise resistant fat via focused ultrasound wavelengths. The FDA-approved procedure is completely non-invasive and provides long-lasting results.
If you’re looking to have your desired shape contoured in time for a big event, there are several factors you’ll need to take into consideration. The best way to determine what’s right for you is through an in-person consultation with one of our body contouring specialists. Below we’ll give you a broad generalization on what to expect from your treatments.
How Many Sessions Will You Need for an Optimal Outcome?
VelaShape can produce significant results in as few as four treatment sessions. Three UltraShape treatments are recommended to slim and contour your desired shape. Your treatment plan can vary based on your ultimate goals.
Both VelaShape and UltraShape Power treatments are spaced two weeks apart for maximum efficacy.
When Will You Start to See Results?
VelaShape results are not immediate. You may see some improvement 2-weeks after your initial treatment. However, most patients see an optimal outcome 2-10 weeks following their final VelaShape session due to an increase in collagen and elastin levels. The procedure has long-lasting skin tightening effects up to 12+ months. Fat reduction can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle.
UltraShape results can be seen 2-4 weeks after treatment. The ultrasound wavelengths break down fat cells allowing your body to naturally rid itself of them over time. Once existing fat cells are gone, they’re unable to regenerate. With proper diet and exercise, patients can achieve long-term results and avoid the need for further treatment.
How Long Before Your Big Event Should You Start Treatment?
When you should start treatment depends on the body contouring treatment chosen and your individual goals. If you’d like to look your absolute best for a big event, we often recommend scheduling your initial treatment 2-3 months in advance. Doing so will allow you to feel good in your own skin and shop appropriately for clothing for your event.
At the time of your initial consult, we’ll discuss all of your options in-depth. We’ll help you achieve your desired outcome as quickly and effectively as possible.
