Velashape™: Body Reshaping/Cellulite Treatment

New York City Velashape™ Treatment

VelaShape™ is the first FDA approved non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for body reshaping and cellulite. Velashape™ produces a gradual smoothening of the skin, a noticeable reduction in cellulite and reshaping of body areas in as few as 4 treatment sessions. The procedure is virtually painless, and produces mild redness and some bruising. Patients can resume their normal activities, including exercise, immediately after treatment.

How does Velashape™ work?

Velashape™ uses a combination of bipolar radiofrequency and light enery (a specialized technology called elos™) to target and heat fatty tissue along with deep massage to smooth the skin. Most patients will require a series of 6 treatments at one week intervals.

Does Velashape™ treatment hurt?

Most patients find Velashape™ treatment comfortable – like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment level can be adjusted to accommodate your sensitivity level. The treated area may feel warm for a few hours after treatment.

Is there downtime after the Velashape™ procedure?

The treated area will have mild redness for several hours after the procedure and there may be mild bruising.

When will I begin to see results after Velashape™ treatment?

There is gradual improvement in the appearance of the skin after the first treatment session. The skin begins to feel tighter, smoother and firmer. Results in circumference reduction or body shaping will be most apparent 6-8 weeks after the final treatment.

How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?

In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of about 1 inch post treatment series. In clinical trials, the range of circumferential reduction was between 0.5-3 inches.

How do I maintain the results after Velashape™ treatment?

Following the completion of your 6-session treatment program, we recommend that you have periodic maintenance treatments. Like all surgical and non-surgical body shaping treatments, results will last longer if you exercise and follow a balanced diet.
