What Is VelaShape® III?

The VelaShape® III laser combines bi-polar radio frequency, infrared light energy, and mechanical massage/vacuum to safely and effectively improve sagging skin and reduce cellulite appearance. It does so by causing deep heating of fat cells, surrounding tissues, and underlying collagen fibers. This type of deep heating and massage stimulates the growth of better, smoother collagen, improved skin texture, and a reduction in cellulite and body volume.

Benefits Of VelaShape® III

For patients ready to look and feel their best, there are many benefits of VelaShape® III treatments. One of the most important is that it’s a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for body shaping, which means there’s little to no downtime. Unlike other treatments, patients typically see results from the VelaShape® III laser in a little as four weeks and after only a few treatment sessions. It’s also an ideal treatment for those with all skin types and skin colors.

How Does VelaShape® III Work?

VelaShape® III is the only non-invasive body shaping product to combine four different technologies, including IR (infrared), Bi-Polar RF (radio-frequency), and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed vacuum and massage rollers. The combination of these technologies causes deep heating of the connective tissue, promoting an increase in collagen deposits and local cellular metabolism resulting in a localized reduction in fat. The mechanical tissue manipulation of VelaShape® III causes an immediate increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, which is essential for a healthy skin structure.

Am I A Good Candidate For VelaShape® III?

Good candidates for VelaShape® III are men and women who are a normal weight or slightly overweight who wish to reduce cellulite appearance. It’s important to note that VelaShape® III is not a weight-loss treatment — it should be used only to help tighten and re-contour the skin. Patients who have a pacemaker or defibrillator, have recently had a serious medical issue or surgery, have just recovered from a major injury or illness, or are pregnant or nursing should discuss VelaShape® III treatments’ timing with our team.

How Many VelaShape® III Treatments Will I Need?

Patients will begin to notice gradual improvement of the treated area right away as the skin’s surface starts to feel smoother. Over time, you will also notice a smaller circumference throughout the treated area, as well as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. The best results will be seen at about ten weeks. Typically it takes 3–6 treatments to achieve optimal results. It is often possible to substitute one longer treatment session for up to three shorter sessions. Our dermatologists will determine the right treatment plan for each patient.
