What is VelaShape?
VelaShape is a body contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency and infrared light energy to smooth the skin’s surface to noticeably reduce cellulite and circumference of the treated area.
How does VelaShape work?
The radiofrequency and infrared light energy precisely heats and treats the skin to reduce or shrink the size of the fat cells and chambers. This decreases the amount of space the body has for storing fat, resulting in a smooth body contouring effect.
How is VelaShape different from other body contouring procedures?
VelaShape uses a fat reducing and smoothing technology that utilizes a combination of radiofrequency and infrared light energy with vacuum to provide a even and reduced circumference.
What areas can be treated for Circumference Reduction?
VelaShape is most effective for areas on the body such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. The two applicators provided by VelaShape are VShmooth and VContour. These devices are designed for large and small body areas, which will allow the patient and Dr. Cameron Rokhsar to form an individualized treatment plan. Clinical studies reported patients with 0.5 to 3 inches on average in circumference reduction.
Does the treatment hurt?
Patients have reported that the treatment overall lacks in pain, and they experience a deep heating sensation below the skin, similar to a deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to minimalize discomfort and adjust to your sensitivity and comfort level.
How quickly will I notice results?
VelaShape provides gradual improvements in appearance, however the most noticeable results will take place 6 to 8 weeks following the final treatment. The treated area will feel smoother and tighter as results progress over time.
How long do results last?
Results are progressive and for most last between 6 to 12 months. In clinical studies, 85 percent of the areas treated showed a circumferential reduction in thighs for at least 1 centimeter.
