VelaShape combines several technologies to treat the buttocks, hips, upper arms, saddle bags, and parts of the thigh.

The device is cleared by the FDA to reduce the circumference of these areas and to improve the appearance of cellulite.

VelaShape uses radiofrequency energy, light, vacuum, and mechanical rollers. The goal is to break down tissue fat by heat so the fat can be eliminated naturally by the body. The vacuum pulls up the skin and the rollers knead the area to facilitate the process. The result is a smaller circumference and smoother skin in the treated area. We recommend 4 to 6 weekly treatments initially and then monthly treatments to maintain the improvement.

The VelaShape has two applicators. One is used to treat large areas such as thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. The other is used for smaller areas such as the lower leg, upper arms, bra lines, face, and under the chin.
