You will start by meeting with one of our experienced practitioners to discuss your medical history, determine your eligibility, discuss details of the actual treatment and schedule a treatment time.
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 which cause the orange peel appearance we know as cellulite.
This totally non-invasive treatment is suitable for both men and women with cellulite. Sessions take about an hour, so you can pop in during your lunch break. The areas that can be treated are:
The treatment will begin with a layer of lotion being applied to the skin to act as a glide for the hand-piece, which is then moved around the areas requiring treatment. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours.
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, arms, bottoms and thighs.
You will feel warmth building on the skin along with a pinching sensation (vacuum suction). Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. Certain areas can feel slightly more uncomfortable than others.
Treatments can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. This is discussed in your consultation with you practitioner.
