What Is VelaShape®?

VelaShape® is a completely non-invasive body contouring procedure that makes use of both radiofrequency energy and infrared light. This is a great option for anyone who wants to tackle issues such as cellulite and skin laxity.

How Does VelaShape® Work?

VelaShape® works by using a unique combination of radiofrequency energy and infrared light to stimulate collagen and elastin production within the skin. These two proteins are considered the building blocks of strong and healthy skin. We start to produce less of either with age, which leads to skin laxity and the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

When administered by a medical professional as part of your treatment, the radiofrequency energy, and infrared light combine to provide controlled heating to the subdermal tissues. The tissues are heated just enough to kickstart collagen and elastin production, but not enough to cause any damage to the area.

As a result, treated areas become smoother and more toned. VelaShape® also leads to beneficial results that provide to overall circumferential reduction.

What to Expect During Treatment

Treatment with VelaShape® is easy, straightforward and comfortable. The entire procedure is performed with a handheld device that delivers infrared light and radiofrequency area to the area. While the subdermal tissues are being heated, most patients feel nothing more than a gentle warming sensation throughout the entire process.

Your treatment can usually be finished in less than an hour. You shouldn’t experience any after-effects other than some mild redness or swelling, so you’ll be able to go right back to your regular routine after your procedure has been finished.
