Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES VELASHAPE WORK?
VelaShape technology is the only non-invasive body shaping treatment that combines four different technologies:
• Bi-Polar Radio-Frequency (RF)
• Infra-Red (IR) light energy
• Mechanical tissue massage
• Vacuum tissue massage
This unique combo intensifies the breakdown of stored fat, shrinks fat cells and, at the same time, increases lymphatic drainage.
The technology works by targeting and controlling precisely the heat of dermal and hypodermal tissue, while massaging the treated area to smooth out the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED TO HAVE?
It is important to highlight that each patient's needs are different. Overall, a total of four to six treatments is recommended at weekly intervals. Also, an upkeep session every six months helps to maximize and maintain the results.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
You’ll be able to notice gradual improvement of the treated area right after your first VelaShape treatment. Your skin surface will feel smoother, firmer and tighter.
However, results in cellulite reduction will become more apparent within 6 to 8 weeks following the final VelaShape treatment session.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO VELASHAPE?
Rest assured that Velashape has been cleared by the FDA as safe and effective in the treatment of cellulite and circumference reduction for all skin types & colours.
The most common side effect of VelaShape is redness and swelling in the treated area. This is totally normal and expected. There is a rare chance of bruising or scabbing if you have very loose skin, but it shouldn't last more than a couple days.
ARE RESULTS PERMANENT?
Even though results from the VelaShape are very long-lasting, as we age our skin and tissues age as well, no matter how many treatments were done before.
As it goes with any other cosmetic treatment, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a nutrient rich diet and exercise regularly.
