What is VelaShape?
VelaShape III is the latest and most effective model of the device. The system incorporates gentle infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency, mechanical massage, and vacuum therapies to help you look your best. The result is a noticeable improvement in skin texture, skin laxity, and body shape.
Many areas of the body can be treated with VelaShape, including the:
VelaShape can produce amazing results as a standalone treatment. It also compliments other treatments and procedures. For example, many patients undergo VelaShape after liposuction to refine their results.
Is VelaShape Right for Me?
VelaShape may be a great choice if you’re interested in improving your skin texture and refining your contours. However, it’s important to know that this isn’t a weight-loss treatment. VelaShape can effectively reduce the stubborn spots that don’t respond to diet and exercise, but you need to be at or near your goal weight for the best outcome.
The ideal VelaShape patient has a BMI of less than 30 and mild to moderate cellulite. Mild cellulite is only visible when you pinch the skin. Meanwhile, moderate cellulite is visible when standing, but not when lying down. Dr. Hardt will help determine if VelaShape is right for you during a consultation.
Your VelaShape Treatment
A VelaShape session is comfortable and relatively short, though the time varies based on the number of treatment areas. It doesn’t require any preparation on your part.
The device utilizes suction to pull the skin closer to the treatment handpiece before delivering a massage, as well as infrared and RF therapies to warm the skin. These actions stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin while reducing fat cell volume.
VelaShape requires no recovery period or downtime. You may have some redness in the treatment area, which is normal and fades after several hours.
How Long Does it Take for VelaShape to Work?
While some patients see results from one or two treatments, most need three to six sessions to achieve their aesthetic goals. Dr. Hardt will work with you to develop a customized plan.
VelaShape results appear gradually. Most patients see the full results six to eight weeks after completing their treatment series. However, some notice a visible improvement earlier in their VelaShape plan.
You can maintain your results with follow-up treatments. Talk to Dr. Hardt about scheduling additional sessions at a frequency that makes sense for you and your goals.
