Velashape Cellulite Treatment
Body contouring doesn’t always have to involve surgery. The VelaShape system is a non-invasive alternative that can reduce fatty deposits without the need for surgical incisions. Common problem areas include:
- love handles
Generally, the best candidates for Velashape treatment are healthy and eat well, but live with persistent cellulite deposits. Dr. Hunsicker performs fast, virtually pain-free Velashape cellulite treatments at her clinic just a few miles south of Denver.
Techniques Used in Velashape Cellulite Treatment
Using an FDA-approved handheld device, fat can be melted away and problem areas firmed with minimal discomfort. After a brief session, patients can leave the clinic immediately with no downtime, and no one will know the difference until results gradually begin to appear.
Velashape Cellulite Treatment FAQ
How does it work?
The treatment uses combined energies to target and heat fatty tissues without harming the surrounding tissues. At the same time, the vacuum and mechanical massage work to even out the skin and help deliver the bi-polar radiofrequency and infrared energies to the inner fatty deposits. These approaches combine to reduce cellulite and firm problem areas by:
- increasing the metabolism of stored energy
- increasing lymphatic drainage
- reducing the size of the fatty deposits
When will I notice a change?
After your first treatment, you will experience a gradual improvement, with your skin surface feeling smoother. Over time, you will notice that your cellulite deposits are declining, and the circumference of the treated area is decreasing. Maximum results appear roughly 6–8 weeks after the final treatment session.
How effective are the treatments?
Clinical studies have revealed an average reduction of roughly 1 inch after a series of treatments. During clinical trials, it was found that the range of circumferential reduction could be as low as half an inch or as high as 3 inches. Everyone’s body is different and results may vary.
How do I maintain my results?
The importance of a balanced diet and exercise can never be overstated. In order to maintain the best results, patients are recommended to seek occasional maintenance treatments.
Does the treatment hurt?
Most patients experience nothing more than a heating sensation beneath their skin, resembling a warm deep tissue massage. During the procedure, your skin will be cooled by a special cooling system that ensures your comfort and safety. Mild bruising or redness may occur but tends to pass within a matter of hours.
Is it safe?
VelaShape has been approved by the FDA and is among the safest fat-reduction technologies available. Thanks to the use of radio energy, VelaShape employs less light energy than conventional lasers, making it safe for all skin types.
