hello world!


VelaShape® is a non-invasive, non-surgical, FDA-cleared body contouring treatment for temporary circumferential and cellulite reduction. Typically, patients start to see dramatic results--a more contoured, well-shaped body--after just three treatment sessions (single treatment sessions are also available). The end result is a more youthful-looking you!

Indications for Use

VelaShape® treatments can be applied to the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank, and abdomen for circumferential and cellulite reduction.  Results may be gradual and cumulative throughout the treatment process.

How It Works

VelaShape® uses vacuum technology to manipulate your skin while infrared light (IR) directly heats the targeted area. The bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy safely guides heat evenly throughout the targeted area, so that it heats faster (but gently) without damaging the skin. This deep heating of fat cells, the surrounding connective tissue, and underlying dermal collagen fibers allow for more efficient heating, stimulating the growth of new and better collagen and elastin. The end result is a more localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

Ideal Candidate for VelaShape® Treatment

VelaShape® is ideal for patients who have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, and who fall under Stages 1 and 2 of The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Scale (as defined below).

The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Scale

Stage 1

NO dimpling while the patient is standing or lying down, but the pinch test reveals the "orange peel" appearance.

Stage 2

"Orange peel" dimpling appears spontaneously when standing up, but NOT when lying down

Stage 3

"Orange peel" dimpling appears spontaneously both when standing up AND lying down.

VelaShape® Consultation

During your consultation, you will meet with one of our clinicians to discuss your body-contouring goals.  

Your clinician will develop a treatment plan tailored to meet your specific needs. The clinician will also determine how many treatments you may need for your specific body-shaping goals. Since everyone’s body is different, no two treatment plans are alike, but rather they are very personalized.  

VelaShape® Treatment

On treatment day, the technician will take you into a treatment room and have you lay down on a treatment table. There are no needles or anesthesia involved. The technician will apply the VelaShape® handpiece directly to the target area. The mechanical rollers on the handpiece massage and smooth out the skin, while directing infrared radio frequencies into the skin to warm up the underlying tissue. This causes the fat cells to shrink or reduce the size of fat cells and fat chambers.

How VelaShape® Treatment Feels 

Most patients report that the VelaShape® treatment feels like a warm, deep-tissue massage. 

During treatment:

  • Parameters are adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience.  

After treatment:

  • Patients may experience a warm sensation and pinkish appearance at the treatment area and surrounding skin within a few hours after treatment.

Treatment Results You Can Expect from VelaShape®

Results vary from person to person depending on the frequency and duration of treatment and fat cell density.

VelaShape® treatment results often include: 

  • Gradual Smoothing of Skin’s Surface
  • Noticeable Reduction in Cellulite
  • Circumferential Reduction
  • Noticeable Reshaping of Treated Area

Clinical trials showed that within a 3 month period, VelaShape® was effective in reducing the circumference of the

  • Abdomen, 1.4 cm 
  • Buttocks, .5 cm 
  • Thighs, 1.2 cm 

Reportedly, patients are extremely happy with their results, stating that their clothes fit better and they feel less self-conscious when wearing shorts or a bathing suit. 

Recovery After VelaShape® Treatment

Since VelaShape® is a non-invasive treatment, there is little to no downtime.  Many patients return to work or other normal, daily activities the same day.

Follow-Up Treatments

VelaShape results aren’t permanent. You’ll need to maintain them with follow-up treatments at least every 6 months, and by exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet.
