What is VelaShape
VelaShape is a non-invasive laser treatment useful for skin tightening with additional benefits of reducing fat deposits and treating cellulite. It has zero downtime and is relatively painless.
The laser combines 4 different technologies including IF (infrared), Bi-Polar RF( radiofrequency), and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed vacuum and massage rollers.
What Areas Of the Body can be treated with VelaShape?
VelaShpae treatment can be applied to almost any part of the body including: abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms and more.
How Does VelaShape help improve Cellulite?
The combination of infrared and radiofrequency using pulsed vacuum results in deep heating of the connective tissue including the fibrous septae which are bands attaching the skin to the underlying tissue. This leads to an increase in collagen deposition and local cellular metabolism which decreases skin laxity thereby leading to skin tightening. There is also an increase in local circulation and local lymphatic drainage which again contribute to tightening and improvement in cellulite.
