VelaShape III Body Sculpting
Radiance Skin Therapy utilizes VelaShape III, a non-invasive body shaping treatment for reducing cellulite, as well as slimming and tightening the area around the stomach, hips, and thighs. VelaShape III is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas in as little as four treatments. The VelaShape machine combines four different technologies — infrared, bipolar radio frequency, pulsed vacuum, and massage rollers — to improve skin texture and reduce overall volume of the treated area. VelaShape III is quick, easy, and painless.
How does VelaShape III work?
The head of the machine uses a pulsed vacuum to pull tissue closer to the energy source, as infrared light heats the fat cells in the targeted area. Bipolar radio frequency energy safely guides heat evenly throughout the targeted area, so that it heats faster without damaging the skin. This combination of technologies increases the metabolism of the fatty area, resulting in smoother skin and circumference.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of four to six treatments are needed, usually spaced one to two weeks apart. The length of individual VelaShape III sessions can vary depending on the size of your treatment area.
When would I expect to see improvement?
You can expect to see improvement in the treatment area in as little as two weeks, with the best results at around ten weeks. As far as maintenance, periodic treatments are recommended following the initial series. Results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise plan.
What does VelaShape III Feel Like?
VelaShape III has been described as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment can be adjusted to ensure comfort with little to no post-procedure downtime.
What’s the recovery time after a VelaShape III treatment?
VelaShape III is a no-downtime treatment, although it’s normal to experience a warm sensation in the treatment area or notice that it looks a little pink for a few hours after the procedure. A mild bruise may be seen In individuals who bruise easily. You should be able to return to your regular activities right away.
