The Velashape combines gentle light and radio frequency energies (ELOS™) with mechanical rollers and vacuum suction to manipulate the superficial fat tissue layer that contributes to cellulite. The heat from the light and RF energies increases metabolism of this fatty layer and shrinks the size of fat cells. The mechanical rollers and vacuum suction act on the blood vessels to increase circulation to the local area, as well as massaging the skin to achieve a smoother, less dimpled surface appearance.
Treatment is very safe for all skin colors and can be performed even on tanned skin. There are no long-term health hazards from light.
The initial treatment series consists of 4 treatment sessions- treatments are performed once a week. Some patients see the improvements as soon as 1-2 sessions. Maintenance treatments are typically done once every three months after.
Velashape treatments are for anyone who wants improvement of the appearance of cellulite or loose skin in their thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, or upper arms. Contouring of unwanted bulges and disproportionate fatty areas is also a benefit of Velashape treatments. The effects of body contouring and reduction of girth for some patients may be enhanced by compliance to healthy lifestyle.
