Cellulite & Body Contouring (VelaShapeTM)

Free skin consultation
Why wait any longer?
Did you know that cellulite affects 80% of women over the age of 20 to some degree? If you feel self-conscious about cellulite or the shape of your thighs, bottom or stomach, then our VelaShape™ may be a suitable treatment option. This treatment can shape, slim and contour your body by improving the appearance of cellulite and reducing circumference over a course of sessions.
The treatment can be performed without downtime or significant discomfort, and is suitable for men and women.
Areas that can be treated include the thighs, buttocks, upper-arms, hips, tummy and calves – all those tricky areas that can lose their definition over time. An initial consultation is necessary to ensure each individual’s suitability for treatment and to discuss results that can realistically be expected.
- Potentially reduce the circumference of your thighs
- Can improve the appearance of cellulite
- May benefit your circulation and skin tone
- Can reshape the treated areas
How does it work?
VelaShape’s technology combines bipolar radio frequency and infrared energies with vacuum and mechanical massage of the skin tissue to provide high levels of efficacy and safety. These technologies combine to work on improving your skin tone and texture along with reducing the appearance of cellulite. It may also reduce circumference and improve the contour of the treated area.
VelaShape targets cellulite by heating the hypodermis. This heat increases the metabolism of fat cells, which in turn makes them shrink and also results in tightening of the skin. The vacuum and roller massage increase circulation and improve lymphatic drainage, thus leaving the skins surface smoother.
What happens during the treatment?
Before beginning your treatment, we will apply a lotion that makes it easier for us to move the hand piece of the Velashape across your skin. Applying even pressure, we will then move the handheld device slowly backwards and forwards across your skin. You will feel a gentle suction, which some people say feels like kneading, but this should cause little to no discomfort. You may also experience a pleasant deep heating sensation beneath your skin.
This non-invasive treatment takes about 30 minutes for both thighs; other areas may take more or less time. There is no down-time and it is a relatively painless procedure.
When will I see results?
You will see a gradual improvement of the treated area after your first treatment. Usually, the first thing people notice is that the treated area feels smoother. Results in circumference and cellulite reduction tend to be most apparent six to eight weeks after the final treatment session.
How often can I have it done?
With a course of six treatments, it is possible to reduce the appearance of cellulite and experience circumference reduction and improved contour. Maintenance treatments every one to six months are required to keep the cellulite away.
What can I expect immediately after treatment?
It is normal to have an inner heated sensation for up to a few hours after a VelaShape™ treatment. In some case, you might experience some mild redness but this will resolve within a couple of hours.
