The VelaShape Difference
VelaShape™ is a safe and effective treatment recognized and approved by the FDA to slenderize, shape, and smooth the shape of your body by attacking stubborn cellulite deposits. In fact, it is the only treatment recognized officially to do this with only four or more treatment sessions. The difference is not only in the results. VelaShape™ uses the latest bi-polar radiofrequency infrared light energy combined with mechanical massage and vacuum suction to facilitate the body’s change.
The vacuum and massage rollers help to create a smoother skin surface. Precision heating works to boost metabolism and breakdown of the fat cells that cause cellulite’s appearance. Every aspect of the treatment works synergistically together to boost energy metabolism, improve drainage of the lymphatic system, and minimize the look of cellulite.
End results include:
Your skin gets smoother at a natural, gradual pace as the cellulite is minimized
The area of cellulite deposits reduces and the treatment area changes shape
Clinical research studies conducted in multiple locations have shown that 85% of patients have seen a reduction in thigh circumference of 1cm to 7.2cms.
Improve your appearance, fit into your favorite clothes, and boost your self-confidence with VelaShape™ treatments.

Getting VelaShape II Treatments
Preparations Before VelaShape
Getting ready for your own VelaShape™ treatment is simple and quick. Your physician or the administering professional should also give you these and other guidelines as necessary for your particular patient case.
Refrain from taking aspirin, Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E, and prescription blood thinners for 48 hours before the procedure.
Take a regular shower before treatment commences
Do not use body or hand cream, lotions, sunscreen, or other skin treatments after the shower.
Choose comfortable clothing that is not tight or binding. Skin can experience some irritation after treatment, and loose outfits will be more comfortable.
Eat only small amounts at least two or three hours before your treatment time. VelaShape™ works better on looser skin, so a tight, full belly is not condusive.
Hydrate well for 24 to 48 hours before treatment. This helps your metabolism deal with the destroyed fat cells more effectively. There is no need to drink to excess directly before the treatment.
Tell the physician or treatment counselor of every medication, prescription and over-the-counter, as well as supplements, vitamins, and minerals you take prior to your appointment.
Care Plan After VelaShape
While the procedure requires no downtime, and you can get right back to work or regular activity, it is recommended to follow this simple after-care plan.
Delay your exercise routine for 24 hours. All other normal daily activities are perfectly fine immediately following the VelaShape™ treatment appointment. You may experience a bit of site soreness, but that should go away quickly.
Do not drink alcohol for 24 hours
Do drink lots of fresh water to rehydrate and facilitate the lymphatic system function that processes the fat cell materials out of your body.
Eat small meals more frequently for three or four days after the procedure. This prevents excessive stretching of the stomach area that may interfere with the maximum metabolism process.
Make a Follow Up Plan With Your Doctor
As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, it is important to follow up with your doctor. Also, you can perform certain self-improvement tasks to facilitate even greater change in conjunction with the VelaShape™ treatment.
Maintenance or spot-help treatments should occur every week for a month or two
Ongoing maintenance may be recommended by the doctor or technician
Proper diet and hydration habits help VelaShape™ make more noticeable body contouring effects over time.
Other than the 24 hours post-treatment, exercise is recommended around VelaShape™ procedures.
Reasons to Avoid VelaShape Treatments
Women who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant should stay away from VelaShape™ treatments until 6 weeks post childbirth.
Breastfeeding mothers should wait until the child is weaned.
People with severe heart conditions, internal defibrillators, and pacemakers should avoid VelaShape™ procedures. While no known threats exist, no overwhelming evidence of safety for medically delicate people exist either.
Diabetics have a reduced ability to naturally filter out fat cell contents through the lymph nodes and ducts, which is the natural method your body uses post VelaShape™. This reduces the effectiveness of the treatment.
Those with thyroid conditions can have similar problems.
Those suffering from skin cancer, potentially malignant blemishes, and any active skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rashes, or herpes should avoid VelaShape™ or discuss the possibility of its use with their medical team first.
People with tattoos or superficial metal implants must avoid VelaShape™.
Ingesting excess caffeine, alcohol, or any other drugs or medications that interfere with lymphatic drainage will not be helped as much by VelaShape™. Always consult your regular physicians before signing up for treatment.
