VelaShape® & UltraShape®
VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment to reduce cellulite. VelaShape allows you to safely achieve a toned, sculpted and well-shaped body in typically 3 treatments (one treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape produces dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.
Exercising and eating well can do wonders for your body, but it can be difficult to lose stubborn fat that resists all your efforts. The UltraShape treatment is comfortable and effectively breaks down the fat cells in the target area leaving the blood vessels, nerves and skin intact. It is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment designed to eliminate fat cells in the abdominal area, but it is not a solution for losing weight. UltraShape's ultrasonic energy destroys the walls of your body's fat cells, releasing fat in the form of triglycerides. Triglycerides are transformed by the liver and eliminated naturally from the body. The surrounding tissues, nerves and muscles are unharmed. It is not surgical, so there are no incisions or anesthetics.

The technology combines infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and underlying dermal fibres of collagen. This type of effective warming and suction stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized skin reduction, lightness, body volume and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
The treatment is recommended for normal and overweight patients who suffer from uncomfortable cellulite in the pelvic area, around the hips, abdomen or lower limbs. For optimized results, these patients should also strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The treatment provider has the final determination to select the best treatment candidates.
Improvement of skin appearance can be noticed in only 1-2 treatments. For optimum results, 4-6 treatments is recommended.
In general, try to incorporate healthy lifestyle options into your routine before treatment to maximize UltraShape results. This involves following a nutritious and balanced diet and exercising at least 20 minutes a day. Your treatment provider may recommend that you drink about 10 cups of water on the day of treatment to stay hydrated. You should also avoid smoking for a few days before treatment.
In addition to a tingling or warming sensation during the procedure, most people experience little or no discomfort. Some people have reported bruising immediately after the procedure. On rare occasions, you may experience blisters.
The results are visible in just two weeks after the first treatment with UltraShape. For best results, it is recommended to receive three treatments, separated by two weeks. Once the treatment removes specific fat cells, they cannot regenerate. However, other fat cells in the surrounding areas may grow more, so it is essential to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after UltraShape.
