Before beginning VelaShape® III, all clients should have a consultation to review their medical history and determine the appropriate course of treatment. Those considering VelaShape® should ensure that their skin is in good health and free from any abrasions.
What Happens During the Procedure?
On average, a VelaShape® treatment duration is somewhere between 20 minutes and 2 hours depending on the treatment areas. VelaShape® III uses a vacuum to manipulate your body tissues with a firm suctioning motion. Infrared light is combined with radio frequencies, simultaneously heating the fat cells.
Many patients compare the non-invasive procedure to a warm deep-tissue massage. Most patients find the experience to be comfortable and trouble-free. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area. Redness of the skin often subsides several hours after the procedure. Recovery time is generally minimal with little interruption to regular activities for most patients.
The procedure promotes the growth of elastin and collagen, which results in healthier-looking skin tissue. Patients normally see results in as little as four weeks. It is common to see a significant reduction of cellulite, smoothed skin, and an enhanced appearance over time. Clothes often fit better, and patients feel much better about their enhanced physique.
