VelaShape technology for body contouring, fat reduction and cellulite treatment!
VelaShape III is the perfect non-surgical answer for treating the problem areas that cause women to feel so displeased about their body image.
It is a unique, easy to use, comfortable, deep therapeutic body contouring treatment with no downtime that delivers enhanced clinical protocols with consistent results that can be reproduced time after time.
VelaShape III Mechanism of Action
Powered by elōs technology, VelaShape III combines IR (infrared), bi-polar RF (radiofrequency), and vacuum to precisely heat the tissue up to 3mm and 15mm depth, respectively.
The combination of IR and vacuum coupled with RF technologies causes deep heating of the fat cells (adipocytes), their surrounding connective fibrous septae, and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. Efficient heating of the adipocytes is achieved through higher output of RF. The optimal design of the electrodes and the concurrent application of vacuum allows for deeper and faster heat penetration. In turn, this promotes an increase in circulation, lymphatic drainage, cellular metabolism, and collagen depositing. Furthermore, it stimulates fibroblast activity and remodels the extracellular matrix.
THE RESULT: A localized reduction in skin laxity, volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
New Stacking Mode Clinical Protocol
The stacking mode clinical protocol has been developed for the optimized treatment of local fat deposits. This new protocol provides a reduction of at least 2 cm in as few as 3 treatments, as well as sustained heating of the tissue resulting in optimal, reproducible results.
What exactly is VelaShape?
VelaShape is a medical device that is FDA cleared for reducing both cellulite and the circumference of the abdomen and thighs. It has evolved through several generations, and VelaShape III is the latest version. It’s been a popular treatment because it’s non-invasive, comfortable, and helps to improve the body’s problem areas — results that are so hard to achieve with other methods.
How does it work?
VelaShape combines three mechanisms: infrared light energy, bipolar radiofrequency electrical energy, and suction massage. These energies work synergistically to heat the fat, collagen, and connective tissue below the skin to therapeutic levels as well as improve the circulation and lymphatic flow of the treated area. As a result, metabolic processes increase while collagen and skin are firmed.
Can it be performed anywhere on the body?
Yes, but VelaShape is most often performed on the buttocks and thighs – outer, inner, front, and back. The abdominal area and flanks are frequently treated because of the unwanted fat that accumulates in those areas. Some also seek treatment on their upper arms to help sculpt the area.
Is it only for people with cellulite?
No, VelaShape’s procedure is perfect for anyone who is looking for body contouring to get rid of extra inches. The treatment can be custom tailored to each area depending on the problem or desired outcome.
Does one procedure solve the problem?
Unfortunately, very few things in life are “one time deal” treatments. The problem is that we still age and decline, and there are many external and internal factors that bring our bodies down and result in cellulite. Therefore, to maintain the body and prevent new cellulite from developing, 1-2 maintenance treatments should be performed every 4-6 months for best results.
How long does each treatment take?
Treatment time depends on the size and number of areas being treated. One area is about the size of an 8 1/2” x 11” piece of paper, and each area can take between 20-30 minutes to treat properly.
What’s the best way to maintain results?
One person’s ability to maintain their body can be very different from another. Naturally-fit people will find it easier to maintain results while others have to watch their diet and exercise constantly to maintain their figure. In general, the best way to maintain your body after VelaShape is to keep up a healthy diet as well as regular physical exercise.
And the risks?
VelaShape is generally a very safe procedure, with minor bruising occurring infrequently. As with any device that utilizes energy to produce heat, there’s always a risk of possible burn to the skin, however, that’s minimized by going to properly trained providers using the latest technology.
Are there any alternatives out there?
The VelaShape is the only FDA cleared device for both cellulite and circumferential reduction. It’s unique in combining the three energies of infrared light energy, radiofrequency electrical energy, and suction massage. Alternative treatments could be radiofrequency-only, infrared, or massage treatments, but these wouldn’t have the synergistic effect of the combined energies as VelaShape. You could diet and exercise; however, it’s because those have failed that most people end up seeking the VelaShape treatment!
FAQ VelaShape-III Treatments:
Cellulite is a structural skin change that occurs in most post-pubertal females whether they are thin or overweight. It presents itself as a modification of skin morphology evident by skin dimpling and nodularity that occurs mainly in women on the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen, and is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance. Cellulite can occur in women of all ages and tends to become more visible with age. Over time, the skin loses its thickness and thereby enhances the visibility of the unsightly cellulite bumps.
The Vela Product line is the only non-invasive body shaping product to combine four different technologies including IR (infrared), Bi-Polar RF (radio-frequency) and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed vacuum and massage rollers. The combination of the IR and vacuum coupled RF technologies causes deep heating of the connective tissue including the fibrous septae which in turn promotes an increase in collagen depositing and local cellular metabolism, resulting in a localized reduction in skin laxity and volume. The additional mechanical tissue manipulation of the Vela causes an immediate increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, both essential components for healthy skin structure. More than 3.5 million independent treatments have been performed globally to date confirming both the safety and unique efficacy of this technology.
The non-invasive Vela line is the only system to combine 4 technologies creating a synergistic effect when treating the appearance of the skin. The unique mechanism of action of this product line enables a very safe, comfortable and effective procedure which has been proven in numerous clinical trials and in over 3.5 million independent treatments.
The safety and effectiveness of the VelaShape treatment has been demonstrated in both multi-center clinical trials and in more than 3.5 million independent treatments performed on patients globally. In addition, Syneron continues to collect clinical data from the increasing number of users.
The Vela treatment can be applied to any body area that may need contouring: thighs, abdomen, arms, flanks and more. Wherever cellulite is bothersome for a patient, the Vela line of devices offers an effective solution to help solve the problem.
The Vela treatments are not limited by age and all patients seeking cellulite reduction and/or circumference reduction can be treated. However, the treating clinician will determine if the patient is a good candidate. In some countries, there are legal requirements for minimum age of treatment.
The Vela treatment is recommended for normal to overweight patients who suffer from unsightly cellulite in the pelvic region, around the hips, abdomen, or lower limbs. For optimized results, these patients should also be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The treating clinician has the final determination for choosing the best candidates for the treatment.
