Premier Cosmetic Medical Center Serving Oklahoma City, Norman, Edmond & Nearby Areas of Oklahoma

If you’re searching for the right non-invasive body shaping treatment, the options may seem overwhelming. Thanks to ongoing advancements in the aesthetic field, there are numerous safe and effective devices on the market today.

Below, you’ll find an overview of two of the most popular treatment options at Rejuvena Cosmetic Medical Center: VelaShape™ III and UltraShape® Power. These services can be performed separately, though they are often used together to produce the most comprehensive results.

The Purpose of Each Treatment

Currently, it’s FDA-cleared to temporarily reduce both the appearance of cellulite and the circumference of the thigh and abdominal areas. In other words, it helps you achieve a toned, contoured, and smooth figure.

The numerous benefits of VelaShape III include:

  • Reducing cellulite on the neck, arms, thighs, buttocks, flank, and abdomen
  • Tightening loose skin on the arms, thighs, buttocks, or abdomen
  • Improving skin tone and texture
  • Slimming targeted regions of the body

Meanwhile, UltraShape Power is used exclusively for body contouring and long-lasting fat cell reduction. It’s FDA-cleared for non-invasive reduction in abdominal circumference as well as fat reduction in the abdomen, flank, and thigh areas.

This treatment is unique because it gently destroys unwanted fat cells. It can help you eliminate stubborn diet- and exercise-resistant fat for good, revealing a slimmer figure. Clinical studies show an average of three to four inches of fat loss after just three UltraShape Power treatments!

Both treatment options can help you feel more confident in your appearance. After your sessions, you may notice that your clothes fit better and look more flattering. Additionally, you may feel less self-conscious in skin-baring shorts and bathing suits.

How They Work

VelaShape III and UltraShape Power are non-invasive treatments. They work by directing safe forms of energy at your cosmetic concerns in order to improve them. Neither service requires anesthetics or incisions.

VelaShape III uses a combination of multiple safe and effective technologies: radio frequency, infrared light, mechanical massage, and pulsed vacuum suction. It simultaneously delivers a deep tissue massage to the targeted areas.

The treatment deeply yet comfortably heats fat cells, the surrounding tissue, and the underlying collagen. Your body responds by producing healthy new collagen and elastin fibers. This results in tighter skin, lower body volume, and an improvement in the tone and texture of the skin.

On the other hand, UltraShape Power uses focused non-thermal ultrasound energy waves. The pulsed acoustic energy works by immediately breaking down subcutaneous fat cells in the targeted area — without affecting the surrounding tissue. Then, your body naturally processes and removes what is left of the destroyed cells. This gradual process helps you achieve a better-contoured figure.

Your Recovery and Results

One session may be enough to reach your goals for your figure. However, patients tend to need three treatment sessions on average. Of course, this varies depending on your physical characteristics and goals.

In terms of the longevity of your results, VelaShape III offers a temporary improvement. Maintenance treatments, scheduled farther apart than the initial treatments, can help support your new look.

By contrast, UltraShape Power permanently eliminates treated fat cells. This means that your results should be long-lasting. However, untreated cells in the area can still expand with weight gain.

You can help preserve the results of both cosmetic services by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Try to eat well, exercise regularly, and stay hydrated.
