Patients who opt for VelaShape will enjoy a variety of benefits, including virtually no downtime, pain or required recovery period. VelaShape is effective on all skin colors and skin types and is considered a safe, non-invasive body contouring procedure. This non-surgical treatment requires no general anesthesia, no injections, no cutting and, in most cases, no pain. While some patients report sensations of heat or minimal bruising after the procedure, most patients find the treatment session to be comfortable and relaxing, with sensations similar to a deep tissue massage. A distinct benefit of VelaShape is the lack of downtime. Patients are able to resume daily activities immediately after receiving treatment and can even return to their regular workout routine the following day.
VelaShape is the first FDA-approved non-invasive device for circumferential reduction and can result in up to a seven centimeter reduction in thigh circumference after a complete series of treatment sessions. It has also been shown to effectively improve body contours and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Most patients opt for a series of four to six treatment sessions for each area to be treated and will see gradual, noticeable improvement in smoothness of the skin, circumference and body contour reshaping. While this is not a permanent treatment and maintenance treatments will be necessary, patients can extend the beneficial results by adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and proper nutrition.
VelaShape allows patients to lose inches, reduce the appearance of cellulite and contour targeted areas of the body comfortably and safely without the need for more invasive procedures, such as liposuction. Patients can look and feel younger, boost their self-confidence and achieve the toned, well-shaped body they desire in just a few, short treatment sessions lasting less than one hour each. With no known side effects and risks, and a high rate of effectiveness, VelaShape is an ideal option for patients looking for a non-invasive body contouring procedure that is safe, effective and simple to incorporate into even the busiest schedules.
