NOW OFFERING THE SLEEK AND SOPHISTICATED VELASHAPE III.
Velashape III, a noninvasive body shaping treatment, offers a quick, noninvasive fix for stubborn cellulite—those areas that refuse to look smooth and toned despite countless kale salads and trips to the gym. It works by combining four different technologies: infrared light (IL), bipolar radio frequency energy (RF), suction and massage, to give you smoother-looking, less dimpled skin.
Just be aware that it’s not a miracle cure; your results will last a few months before you’ll need maintenance treatments. You should ask whether your provider uses Velashape III, which is much different (and better) than Vela I and Vela II.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does VelaShape III work?
VelaShape III from Syneron-Candela combines IR (infrared), bi-polar RF (radiofrequency) and vacuum to precisely heat the tissue up to 3mm and 15mm depth respectively.The combination of IR and vacuum coupled RF technologies causes deep heating of the fat cells (adipocytes), their surrounding connective fibrous septae and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. Efficient heating of the adipocytes is achieved by higher output of the RF.
The optimal design of the electrodes and the concurrent application of vacuum allows for deeper and faster heat penetration. In turn, this promotes an increase in circulation, lymphatic drainage, cellular metabolism and collagen depositing.
Is a VelaShape III treatment right for me?
Guests who are not drastically far from their ideal weight/size (<30 BMI) are ideal candidates for VelaShape II. The treatment was designed to improve skin laxity, reduce fat, and smooth cellulite. It is safe for all skin types and colors. Guests desiring a non-invasive method with no downtime or pain are encouraged to talk to their healthcare professional about VelaShape III.
What areas can VelaShape III treat?
Velashape III reduces the appearance of cellulite of the thighs, hips and buttocks. The Velashape III treatment is highly powered for body contouring and circumferential reduction. Velashape III treatments are available for sculpting the following body areas:
- Under the chin
- Bra fat area
- Arms (upper side/triceps)
- Abs (front area)
- Flanks (love-handles)
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Front thighs
- Back thighs
How many treatments will I need?
Velashape III requirements and results will vary from patient to patient so unfortunately there is no way to say how many treatments one will need. Velashape III definitely helps shrink fat cells and improves the appearance of cellulite, but will not erase it entirely.
We perform Velashape III treatments on a weekly basis with most patients opting for a package of 6-8 treatments to get best results.
What are the benefits of the treatment?
Key benefits to the VelaShape III:
- Shortening the overall treatment duration
- Producing consistent, reproducible results
- Allowing for more precisely targeted fat reduction
During a comfortable, customized VelaShape III treatment, the temperature of the fatty tissue is precisely raised to the most effective treatment depths (up to 3mm and 15mm), and this warming effect serves to:
- Increase cellular metabolism, lymphatic drainage, and circulation
- Firm and smooth the skin’s texture
- Boost collagen production
- Reduce skin laxity (looseness, sagging)
- Decrease in the volume and circumference of the targeted treatment zone by at least 2 centimeters (after only 3 treatment sessions)
- Minimize the appearance of cellulite
**There’s no guarantee of specific results and the results may vary for different people depending on the severity of your cellulite and lifestyle**
What can I expect after my treatment?
Following your VelaShape III session, you are free to resume regular activities. We generally recommend mild
exercise post procedure to assist the lymphatic system in metabolizing the fat released. Any residual soreness
you feel should be over within 48 to 72 hours. To see best results post treatments, we suggest that you avoid large meals, drink your daily intake of water and avoid alcohol for at least three days post-treatment to allow for clearing of fat content and toxins released during the treatment. that might expand your stomach – instead eat five
or six small meals per day for the two or three days following treatment.
