Pregnancy and Velashape

VelaShape is a new way to fight cellulite and promote a trimmed down body contour for those dealing with unsightly bumps or ridges under the skin. This procedure is non-invasive and uses radio energy to treat the skin.

Pregnancy and VelaShape

Although there are no commonly recognized risks associated with VelaShape, pregnant patients are urged to wait until after delivery to start a VelaShape treatment. Those who are getting VelaShape generally get at least 10 to 12 sessions, and these can be difficult to work into the term of a pregnancy. Also, some of the effects of the energy and vacuum component of VelaShape could potentially represent some risk to the fetus.

After the Pregnancy

Women who have just given birth are a major patient base for VelaShape. During the term of the pregnancy, pregnant women have a tendency to develop extra cellulite because of how the body responds to the challenge of carrying a fetus. After the pregnancy, it is estimated that up to 80% of women have developed extra cellulite. Many of these women consider treatments like VelaShape, where the proprietary technology is intended to reduce cellulite by stimulating the metabolism of fat cells.

New mothers or anyone with a buildup of cellulite can look at the track record for VelaShape and the related product VelaSmooth to evaluate whether this kind of treatment is right for them. Consult a doctor before signing up for VelaShape, and if you are a new mother, be sure to ask about the effects of a pregnancy and how VelaShape can help.
