Velashape Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite — which is actually just normal fat — gets its dimpled or bumpy appearance from the way it pushes up against connective tissue, causing undulations in your skin that are sometimes described as having a cottage cheese or orange peel texture. Cellulite shows up most often around the thighs and buttocks, but it can also emerge on your lower belly, upper arms, and breasts, too.

Cellulite is only more common in women because females typically carry more fat through the areas that are most affected by cellulite. Cellulite is also a more common problem for older women, because skin loses elasticity with age. Being overweight may make cellulite more noticeable, but plenty of lean people have visible cellulite, too.

What is VelaShape 3?

VelaShape 3 is a non-invasive body contouring treatment designed to reduce cellulite while helping you safely achieve a nicely contoured, well-shaped body. Velashape 3 is currently the most advanced Velashape available, do not be discouraged by results from other centers that do not have the most advanced equipment. The technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy, and vacuum to cause a deep heating of your fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This efficient, precisely targeted technology stimulates the growth of fresh, new collagen and elastin which helps reduce skin laxity and overall body volume, while improving skin structure and texture.

VelaShape can effectively treat areas of cellulite underneath your chin and on your arms, thighs, buttocks, flank, and abdomen.

Is VelaShape right for me?

VelaShape is designed to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, while giving you a more sculpted figure. It shouldn’t be viewed as a weight-loss treatment, because it won’t help you shed excess pounds. However, VelaShape can help you target unwanted cellulite without having to resort to surgical methods. VelaShape may be right for you if have stubborn cellulite that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise.
