VelaShape™ Velasmooth™ FAQ’s

Click here to visit the VelaShape™ website for up to date information, before and after photos and online video.

What is VelaShape™?
VelaShape™ is the newest non-invasave body-shaping technology from Syneron. It replaces their older technology known as Velasmooth

How does VelaShape™ work?
VelaShape™ uses combined Bi-Polor Radio Frequency and Infrared energies known as elōs™, as well as external suction, to precisely target and heat fat cells and increase their metabolism within the treatment area.  In addition, the vacuum and tissue manipulation smooths out the skin and produces a tighter appearance.

How many treatments?
Four sessions one week apart.  Each area takes 20 minutes.

How quickly will I notice a change?
Improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment- with skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, firmer and tighter.  Further reduction in circumference and/or cellulite will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session.

What areas can I treat?
All areas of the body, however the most popular treatment sites are the thighs, buttocks and abdomen.

Is the treatment painful?
No.  Most patients report that it feels like a warm, deep tissue massage.

Is it safe?
The treatment is FDA approved, safe and effective for all skin types and colors.  There are no reported short or long-term health effects.

I just had a baby, when can I start?
Congratulations on your new baby.  You may begin Velashaping at 3 months postpartum.  If you had a Cesarean, you may begin Velashaping your abdomen at 6 months postpartum.
