What is it?
VelaShape is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared body contouring treatment that uses a combination of heat, suction, rolling, infrared light and radio frequency to tighten and tone problem areas, working to reduce the appearance of cellulite. VelaShape is ideal for those looking to blast away the last bit of fat and target areas plagued by cellulite that diet and exercise can’t seem to reach.
How is done?
VelaShape technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
Who is it recommended for?
BMI < 30
More concerned with "stubborn fatty pockets" than total-body weight loss
Areas with cellulite, uneven, sagging or dimpled skin
How does it look in the end?
There’s no downtime or significant discomfort.
How long does it last?
VelaShape results aren’t permanent. You need to maintain them with follow-up treatments at least every six months. Exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet will also help a lot.
After the treatment, you can immediately return to your normal activities. It’s very important that you drink at least 2 liters of water within 24 hours of treatment. Avoid spicy foods. The dissolved fat is naturally treated by the body's mechanisms. In order to achieve ideal results, you should follow a healthy diet and regular exercise program after each treatment.

How many treatments should I do?
This treatment should be done once or twice a week. VelaShape® enables you to successfully achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typically 5 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful.
