Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS VELASHAPE®?
VelaShape is a non-invasive and deep therapeutic treatment for body contouring, reduction of cellulite, and overall reduction of body circumference.
The treatment works through combined energies known as elōs™ that heat up and target fatty tissues, breaking the fat cells down. The heat also increases the metabolism, specifically in the area treated, and promotes improved circulation and relief from muscle aches. The vacuum and tissue manipulation also facilitate this process, providing added benefits that will make results long-lasting.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
Cellulite can occur on multiple areas of the body, therefore VelaShape technology is efficient in the treatment of all of these areas. Although, most commonly, the treatment is used on the following areas:
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A VELASHAPE TREATMENT?
The best candidates for VelaShape are those with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, that have either Stage 1 or Stage 2 Cellulite.
A Stage 1 Cellulite doesn't show dimpling while you are standing or lying down, only if you pinch the skin it reveals that “orange peel” appearance.
While a Stage 2 Cellulite shows the “orange peel” dimpling spontaneously when you are standing up, but not when you are lying down.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You’ll likely be able to notice improvements in the area treated after 1 – 2 weeks, as well as a measurable reduction in circumference & cellulite. But gradual improvement will continue to appear for longer after the VelaShape Treatment is finished.
Clinical studies have shown that most patients that have undergone an average of 6 VelaShape sessions lost from 0.5 inch to 3 inches in area post treatment.
BUT IS VELASHAPE SAFE?
VelaShape is the first FDA class II cleared platform for Cellulite Treatment and the first non-surgical FDA-cleared medical device for the body reshaping. Beyond that, VelaShape is currently the only proven non-surgical device in the treatment of both the deeper skin tissue and the upper layers of the skin for cellulite. The VelaShape technology has been proven successful in dozens of clinical studies and practiced globally with very high safety records.
