FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS VELASHAPE?
Velashape is a non-invasive body shaping treatment that contours, shapes and slims the body. It works by treating cellulite and circumference reduction with visible results after as little as one treatment. Velashape results are long lasting and don’t involve any downtime or significant discomfort.
IS VELASHAPE PAINFUL?
Velashape was designed to accommodate each patient’s sensitivity and comfort level. Most people find the treatment very comfortable, similar to a deep tissue massage. But you can expect to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment and your skin may also appear red for several hours.
IS THERE ANY PREPARATION INVOLVED BEFORE TREATMENT?
We recommend you to exfoliate the skin with no perfume and no lotion creams before your Velashape session. In order to aid with smooth movement of the applicator and to avoid overheating the treatment area, hair removal is also advised in the treatment area. And, since anticoagulants can increase the possibility of bruising, it is recommended that you avoid medications such as aspirin throughout the succession of treatments.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?
VelaShape sessions usually only last around 30 minutes. Overall, most patients require a series of three VelaShape treatment sessions for optimal results. The treatment does not require any downtime or involve any significant discomfort. But keep in mind that your skin may feel warm and look red for several hours after treatment.
