Many types of treatment are made possible with the VelaShape II device:
- Infrared: The tissue is heated by infrared light to a depth of 3mm
- Radio frequency: Tissue of a depth between 2 and 20mm is heated up by radio frequency
- Vacuum +/- massage: Very accurate targeting of energy to the tissue is possible via vacuum +/- massaging
It is the first and only device capable of tightening and smoothing troublesome areas - which diet and exercise are unable to do.
More than 3.5 million VelaShape treatments have already been performed, and it's still the top choice of physicians for reducing cellulite and carrying out noninvasive body contouring procedures.
This is uncertain, though an unhealthy lifestyle is often seen as a contributory factor. Genetics or hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy, could also be reasons for cellulite. Regardless of size, shape, or weight, an estimated 80% of women are affected by cellulite.
The VelaShape™ system is a proven way of reducing cellulite and the circumference of problem areas. Cellulite can be reduced and inch loss achieved from all areas.
People who adhere to a good diet, who exercise on a routine basis, and whose Body Mass Index (BMI) is under 30. VelaShape is not a weight loss kind of treatment, nor does it act as an alternative to liposuction and other weight loss surgical procedures. You will be advised by your physician during your treatment consultation, whether VelaShape is right for you.
All areas can be treated wherever tightening or smoothing is required. For post-pregnant mums, typical areas to treat are the lower abdomen (post-pregnancy pooch), saddlebags and buttocks. Studies have revealed that on post-pregnancy mums there were average circumference reductions of 7cm on the abdomen, 5.5cm for the buttocks, and an inch on each thigh.
The VelaShape treatment is safe and treats all skin types and colours in an effective way. For most patients the procedure will be comfortable, and akin to a warm, deep tissue massage. No side effects have been reported.
