VelaShape III Q & A

What is VelaShape III?

VelaShape III offers a way to reduce cellulite and fat around the areas of the stomach, hips, and thighs. The machine uses a combination of technologies to improve your skin’s texture and reduce fat. These effective fat-reducing technologies include:

  • Infrared light
  • Bipolar radio frequency
  • Pulsed vacuum
  • Massage rollers

Who is a candidate for VelaShape III?

Anyone with a body mass index (BMI) less than 30 who wants to improve and shape areas that have excess body fat benefits from VelaShape treatments. The procedure doesn’t help you lose weight, but does target those typically stubborn areas that are resistant to traditional diet and exercise strategies.

What are the benefits?

Body contouring with VelaShape is less invasive and less expensive than surgical strategies for fat reduction, such as liposuction. You also have no downtime following a treatment, so you don’t have to wait days or weeks for healing to occur. You can go right back to your regular activities, including exercise, following your treatment.

How does VelaShape III work?

The combined technologies that include vacuum and heat target the fat cells beneath the skin surface. The treatment also stimulates the surrounding connective tissue and collagen -- a skin-strengthening compound. VelaShape vacuum and heating technologies encourage the growth of new collagen to improve skin tone and texture.

How soon will I see results from VelaShape?

VelaShape offers fast results, but you are encouraged to follow a healthy diet and continue with regular exercise to get the best results. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you can make your results from VelaShape last.

Typically, Diana recommends you receive at least three treatment sessions to help you achieve a toned and contoured shape.

What should I expect at a treatment session?

During a VelaShape treatment, you’ll lie on an exam table as Diana applies the machine to the treatment areas. Most people describe the sensation as feeling like a warm, deep-tissue massage. It’s well tolerated by most patients and creates no trauma through incisions or suturing as do other fat-loss methods, such as liposuction.

You may continue to notice a warm sensation in the treatment areas for a few hours after your treatment. Some redness of the treated skin can persist for several hours, too.
