Want to get rid of cellulite? Say hello to VelaShape III. This non-surgical solution can banish cellulite on your arms, back, neck, abdomen, flanks, thighs, and buttocks while toning and firming your skin.

One of the best things about VelaShape treatments is that there’s no downtime. The procedure lasts less than 30 minutes and you’re done- without any pain!

What Causes Cellulite?

It’s a common misconception that cellulite is caused by excess fat. However, countless slim women have cellulite while some overweight women are lucky enough to be cellulite-free. This means that no amount of amount of diet or exercise can eliminate cellulite.

Cellulite is actually a complex problem that has many causes. There are three key components of cellulite: superficial pockets of fat, fibrous bands that tighten and trap the fat, and thin skin. Genetics, skin quality, and hormones are most often to blame for cellulite.

How Does VelaShape III Work?

VelaShape III uses a unique combination of three technologies:

•   Infrared Light (IR): This heats the tissue up to 3mm in depth.
•   Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF): This heats tissue up to 15mm in depth.
•   Vacuum: This ensures the precise and controlled delivery of energy.

While the IR and Bi-Polar RF work to heat up fat cells and the surrounding connective tissue and collagen, the vacuum works to control the heat. This heat increases your circulation, lymphatic drainage, cellular metabolism, and the process of collagen depositing. For you, this ultimately means firmer skin and less cellulite.

The new, high tech design of the VelaShape III applicator allows for deeper and faster heat penetration, which means quicker treatments and better results.

Is VelaShape Treatment Right For Me?

It’s important to remember that VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment. It can eliminate fat from trouble spots that aren’t responding to diet and exercise but it isn’t a full body weight loss tool.

What To Expect From A VelaShape III Treatment

The VelaShape III applicator uses suction to isolate the fatty area of the body. Each area is then treated with infrared light and radiofrequency. This heats up the fat and loosens it from the surrounding fibrous bands.

While it does involve heat, a VelaShape III treatment doesn’t burn your skin. The treatment applicator has a cooling tip, which prevents heat from damaging your skin, and uses active technology to constantly monitor the temperature and prevent overheating. This means that VelaShape III is painless. In fact, many women have said that it actually feels like a warm massage.

A VelaShape treatment typically takes around 30 minutes. For most women, we recommend a series of three VelaShape treatment sessions to achieve optimal results and then it can be repeated every 6 to 12 months to maintain and improve the results.

Following your treatment, your skin may feel warm and look red for several hours, but these side effects are only temporary. As the day goes on, the redness and warmth will gradually fade away. VelaShape treatments don’t require any downtime so you can go right back to your normal routine afterwards.
