Treat Yourself to a Smoother, Sexier Figure
VelaShape® III is a non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring procedure for skin tightening and cellulite reduction. VelaShape® III uses radio frequency energy and infrared heating to smooth and tighten skin and decrease the appearance of cellulite.
How does VelaShape® III work?
VelaShape® technology combines infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energy to cause deep heating of fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and dermal collagen fibers, which causes the appearance of cellulite. Mechanical rollers and vacuum suction are used to smooth the superficial layer of tissue involved in cellulite, reduce skin laxity, and overall improve skin structure and texture.
How noticeable will my results be? How many treatments do I need?
Velashape® treatments produce a temporary* shrinking of fat cells, as well as a smoothing effect upon the skin in the treatment area. Although benefits can be seen from just one or two treatments*, to achieve longer lasting effects, a treatment protocol of three sessions spaced two weeks apart is recommended. Once a patient has undergone that treatment program, maintenance treatments should be performed every 90 days to refresh the results.
Are VelaShape® III treatments painful?
Most patients say that it is a comfortable* process similar to a warm deep tissue massage, although the sensation varies from patient to patient. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment.
Is VelaShape® III treatment right for me?
VelaShape® III is not a weight loss treatment. It uses a combination of technologies to *tighten skin and reduce cellulite in trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. Velashape® III is indicated for mild to moderate cellulite. Our body contouring specialists will evaluate the areas you are interested in treating and assess if Velashape® III is right for you.
I have heard of other treatments that sound similar, how do I know which one I need?
Every body is different. There are many factors – including tissue density, skin laxity, presence of cellulite, co-existing medical issues, history of surgeries, and amount of fat in the area – that influence which treatment modality will be right for you. At Amy Brenner, MD & Associates, we consider all of these factors, plus many more, in customizing your treatment plan.
