A wide variety of patients will be pleased to find that they are good candidates for receiving VelaShape treatments. Because this body contouring procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical, and does not require general anesthesia, there are not many restrictions when it comes to being a good candidate for VelaShape. As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should be in good overall health and should have realistic expectations regarding the results that are possible. Patients should not have pacemakers or metal implants, such as plates or screws, in the treatment area, and should make sure that the skin over the area to be treated is unbroken and healthy. Aside from these minimal restrictions, most patients with body contour issues or cellulite are good candidates for receiving VelaShape treatments.
VelaShape is cleared by the FDA as safe and effective for all skin colors and all skin types, and is approved for treatment of the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and love handles. This non-invasive, virtually pain-free treatment is appropriate for patients with a low pain tolerance and is popular among both male and female patients. Scheduling a consultation with the provider you have selected is the first step in determining whether or not you are a candidate for VelaShape. During the consultation, the provider will review your medical history, discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have. This is also the best time to confirm the cost of treatment to make sure that it fits your budget, or to determine whether or not you might want to look into payment plans and financing options.
Any patient in search of a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can smooth and tighten skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite and target specific areas of the body for contouring may want to consider VelaShape and schedule a consultation with a local provider to determine their candidacy for this procedure.
