VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. The 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 fibres. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localised reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition that is characterized by a dimpling, puckering or “orange peel” appearance of the skin that is most commonly seen on the thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is seen in areas where fat is typically distributed underneath the skin.
How does VelaShape help?
It utilises bipolar radio-frequency (tightens skin), infra-red energies (shrinks fat cells) and a vacuum suction (helps with toning). This is the only technology currently on the market with all 3 modalities and is FDA approved for its use. The skin is heated to shrink the fat cells.
How many treatments are required?
6 treatments are required weekly and then maintenance is required once every 3-6 months depending on the severity of the cellulite. This machine can treat tummy, bottoms and thighs.
