VelaShape® III Q & A

What is VelaShape® III?

VelaShape® III is a body-contouring procedure that safely and effectively shapes and slims your curves while reducing cellulite in problem areas like your hips, thighs, and belly. It uses a combination of radiofrequency energy, infrared light, and gentle pulsed vacuum to deliver a virtually pain-free treatment that effectively reduces subcutaneous fat and tightens overlying skin without the need for surgery.

The efficient heating and vacuum technology used in the VelaShape®

III system is also designed to stimulate new collagen and elastin production, which reduces skin laxity and provides an overall improvement in skin texture and tone.

What areas can you treat with VelaShape® III?

VelaShape® III is safe to use on the:

  • Neck
  • Submental area (under the chin)
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks or so-called “love handles”
  • Abdomen

Am I a good candidate for VelaShape® III?

VelaShape® is not a weight loss treatment. Rather, VelaShape® III uses a combination of patented technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape® patient is someone with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30, whose cellulite falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2.

How does the VelaShape® III treatment work?

VelaShape® III combines radiofrequency energy, infrared light, and gentle vacuum suction to heat your skin, underlying fat cells, and the surrounding connective tissue. The heat targets your dermal and hypodermal tissue and stimulates the metabolism of your fat cells, helping your skin appear more smooth and reducing fat. The vacuum suction puts the skin in closer proximity to the energies being delivered, which allows deeper penetration of the tissue.

During the treatment, you may notice a warming sensation that many patients note is actually relaxing, much like a hot stone massage. Most individuals require a series of three, possibly more, VelaShape® III sessions for optimal results. VelaShape® treatments are safe enough to repeat as frequently as once a week.
