What does Velashape do?
VelaShape works on many areas of the body including thighs, buttucks, stomach, arms, and the chin. The procedure is best for those desiring to smooth out cellulite and improve skin firmness.
Is Velashape treatment right for me?
Velashape is not a weight loss program. Velashape contours your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. A Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 30, and those who are Stage 1 or 2 on the Cellulite Classfication Scale below are ideal candidates. Call for a complimentary consultation with our Velashape specialist to see if you’re a candidate.
Cellulite Classification Scale
|NO dimpling while the patient is standing or lying down, but the pinch test reveals the “orange peel” appearance.|
|“Orange peel” dimpling appears spontaneously when standing up, but NOT when lying down.|
|“Orange peel” dimpling appears spontaneously both when standing up AND lying down.|
How does it work?
Velashape uses a combination of technologies, such as infrared light, bipolar radio frequency energy, and the mechanical action of a vacuum to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastic tissue. The use of different types of energy maximizes heating of fat cells and connective tissue allowing localized reduction in skin laxity and body volume.
The vacuum aids in deeper penetration of infrared and bipolar radiofrequency energy as well as stimulating a lymphatic action to carry away unwanted toxin. This deep heating of the tissues between 39 and 42 degrees Celsius allows excess fat cells to release contents as well as stimulates natural collagen and elastin formation.
Does it hurt? What is the downtime?
One of the advantages of Velashape is the lack of downtime or discomfort. The skin will become warm as your clinician works the device over your skin in repetitive, circular movements. Most patients describe it as a warm deep-tissue massage.
There is no downtime. Some patients may turn pink in the treatment areas for several hours but this dissipates by the end of the day. It is normal to have a warm sensation for a few hours after treatment. Immediately following a VelaShape treatment you may experience a jiggle-like feeling in the treated area; this is the effect of some fat becoming liquefied.
How many treatments do I need?
Velashape treatments are performed every one to two weeks for a series of 6 to 8 sessions depending on your needs. Your clinician will determine the amount of sessions and frequency needed for optimal results.
What results should I expect?
Expect to feel more svelte after one to two sessions-but full results will be noticed at six to twelve weeks. A gradual reduction in cellulite as well as a reshaping of the treated area should also be noticed.
How much will my Velashape cost?
The cost of Velashape in Atlanta will vary depending on the amount of area being covered and the number of sessions needed for your area of concern. Your clinician will examine areas to be treated and customize the right plan for you. Call for a complimentary consultation to see if Velashape is right for you.
