Sometimes, due to age, hereditary factors weight gain and loss or pregnancy, areas of stubborn fat and cellulite can form throughout the body. Even with a great diet and regular exercise, these areas of fat may stick around, causing frustration. While cellulite and dimply skin are perfectly normal and nothing to be ashamed of, there are ways to help remove them, leaving your skin smooth and contoured. For those who are nervous and unwilling to go under the knife with an invasive procedure like liposuction, VelaShape can provide a very effective, noninvasive way to remove fat, contour the body and tighten the skin. The result is a smooth, refined and youthful look. Continuing to receive VelaShape treatments over an extended period of time can create longer lasting, more drastic results.

What Is VelaShape & How Does it Tighten Skin?
VelaShape is an FDA-approved medical device that uses a combination of suction, massage, radio frequency energy, and infrared light to shape and smooth the body. Rather than completely eliminating fat cells, VelaShape is able to shrink them. Once the device is placed against the skin, it uses vacuum technology to suction against the skin and massage rollers to knead the treatment area. As the device is being rolled against the skin, radio-frequency energy and infrared light penetrate the fat cells and temporarily puncture their membranes, causing the fat cells to release fatty acids, glycerol and water into the body and then shrink.
The fat-shrinking effect of the treatments allows patients to lose inches on areas like the thighs, abdomen, and buttocks, and even the delicate skin on the neck and face. VelaShape’s unique mechanism produces a skin tightening effect, which can work wonders on areas with stretched out skin or skin affected by age. Along with skin tightening, over time, VelaShape can produce body shaping and contouring effects on the body by smoothing out areas of stubborn fat. Many patients use VelaShape for stubborn muffin tops or double chins to remove any unsightly lumps and bumps. With virtually no downtime or pain, VelaShape can transform your skin and give you a body you love.
