VelaShape Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite is a stubborn area of fat that appears lumpy and dimply. It affects about 80% of women over the age of 20, and many men, too. It is the most difficult type of fat to get rid of and affects people who are thin as well as those who are overweight. This stubborn fat typically does not respond to diet and exercise and can actually become more visible after weight loss.

Cellulite is not caused by the existence of fat alone. That is why it is so difficult to get rid of. Loss of skin elasticity, fibrous bands of tissue within the skin, poor circulation, and a build up of toxins all work together to create that awful dimply look which sometimes includes large lumps of fat.

Many people with cellulite seek out liposuction, which is a relatively invasive treatment with significant downtime and some substantial risk. VelaShape is non-surgical and non-invasive and carries no downtime. It reduces both cellulite and circumference.

Comparing VelaShape and Liposuction for Cellulite Reduction

VelaShape can treat multiple areas of your body in one short session. Velashape is appropriate for many problem areas including:

  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Love handles
  • Saddle bags
  • Upper arms
  • Neck

How it Works

VelaShape uses a unique combination of radio frequency, infrared energy, vacuum, and rollers to heat, manipulate, and smooth the skin. Lipolysis and lymphatic drainage are stimulated, reducing the pockets of fat. When the pockets of fat are reduced, so is the lumpy and dimpled appearance.

Best results are seen after four short sessions.

VelaShape is a safe and comfortable alternative to liposuction, which can dramatically improve your appearance allowing you to wear bathing suits and shorts with confidence. There is no swelling, bruising, or recovery period.
