Did you know that cellulite affects more than 80% of women over the age of 20? Yes, even those models strutting the runway at New York Fashion Week likely suffer from some amount of cellulite. Having minimal correlation to weight gain, the origin of cellulite is still a fairly big mystery among doctors and plastic surgeons. Luckily, with new and innovative technology in the cosmetic surgery world, you can help to zap away your cellulite without having to ever go under the knife! Read on to learn more.

 

What is VelaShape?

VelaShape is a procedure used to treat and target stubborn fatty areas on your body like cellulite. By combining laser treatment, high radio frequency waves, and massage, VelaShape works to reduce the size of fat cells and re-contour the skin with no downtime at all.

 

Does VelaShape hurt?

VelaShape is a pain free procedure, however, some patients complain of some sort of discomfort during the massage section because your skin is being suctioned in order to help re-contour the skin.

 

How Long Does the Procedure Last?

Luckily, because VelaShape is a non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime which means that you can get in and out of the office in around an hours time. Depending on the size and location of the area being targeted, your session may last around 40 minutes.

 

When Will I See Results?

Patients typically start to see results after they undergo four treatment sessions that are a week apart. However, many patients say that their skin feel noticeably tighter and smoother after just one treatment session. Depending on the severity and size of the area of your body being targeted also plays a big role into what kinds of results you will see and when.

VelaShape is a great way to get rid of that nasty and unwanted cellulite on your body. If you are considering getting VelaShape or if you would like to learn more about this procedure, contact our office today and one of our experts can help get you on the right track towards a skinnier you.
