VelaShape is the non-surgical alternative that has been clinically proven to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite while smoothing and shaping the areas that diet and exercise can’t quite fix. It combines radiofrequency, infrared, vacuum and massage to treat fat and cellulite reduction. There is no downtime and little to no discomfort following the procedure. We recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation with one of our licensed aestheticians to create your customized treatment plan.
The VelaShape applicator is gently applied to the treatment area. Pressing the trigger activates a vacuum cupping and massaging effect. At the same time, infrared light and radiofrequency energies are emitted. The pulsed suctioning, combined with movement of the rollers over the area, draws the tissue closer to the heating source, demarcating the target. It also causes widening of the local blood vessels, as well as increased blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
The infrared light and radiofrequency energies deliver heat to the dermis and hypodermis, causing the release of oxygen and nutrients from the blood stream to the local cells. In the hypodermis, the combination of heat and additional oxygen leads to increased metabolism in the fat cells causing them to shrink as they break down their fat.
Mechanical massage enhances the flow of these fat breakdown products along with trapped fluids to the lymph system. In the dermis, the collagen fibers shrink, resulting in smaller fat chambers and skin tightening. The heat causes collagen shrinkage and activation of the fibroblasts to synthesize new collagen fibers. The end result of all these changes is localized circumferential reduction, improvement in cellulite appearance and ultimately body reshaping
