What is VelaShape®?
VelaShape® is a state-of-the-art, easy way to achieve smoother body contours for a more appealing figure and eliminate the appearance of troublesome cellulite pockets. Through the use of painless radio and light frequencies, lax skin is tightened. In areas where the underlying connective tissues and fibers cause fat to protrude and form cellulite pockets, the natural building blocks of healthy skin are stimulated for a smoother, more pleasing appearance. The volume of the area treated is reduced, so that you can achieve a toned and contoured body in areas where diet and exercise just haven’t been able to help. VelaShape® is designed to reduce cellulite and enhance your body’s contours on many common problem areas, including:
What are the Benefits of VelaShape®?
Cellulite, lax skin, and pockets of fat are challenging cosmetic problems for countless men and women. Through harnessing safe and innovative technology to stimulate the underlying structures that cause these issues, namely the connective tissues and fibers that cause the appearance of protruding fat and a less than attractive figure, VelaShape® can transform your body to match your ideal inner vision of yourself. This increasingly requested procedure has many benefits that patients enjoy, such as:
- Non-invasive, so you won’t have incisions or any scars
- Visibly reduces cellulite and fat volume in just one to three treatments
- Smooths the surface of the skin for improved texture
- Reduction in volume and improvement in contour shape for a more appealing figure
How does VelaShape® Work?
VelaShape® works through a combination treatment using a suction device that patients report feels like a deep massage, and which delivers bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light to the underlying tissue. Through this warm and often soothing procedure, the device works on the structure of fat cells, collagen fibers, and connective tissues. Fat cells are destroyed, and connective tissue coupled with collagen fibers strengthen the latticework that holds your body’s natural stores of fat in place and keeps it from protruding out in pockets of collagen. Most patients only need one to three treatments which are relatively short, and you won’t need any downtime. Afterwards, you might feel a slight warmth in the areas treated for a few hours, but this is mild. Over the coming weeks, you can expect to see a noticeable reduction in cellulite, smoother appearance of the skin, and a reduction in fat volume for an all-around better figure.
Who is a Good Candidate for VelaShape®?
Before having VelaShape® body contouring and cellulite reduction treatments, you will arrange a friendly and informative consultation with Dr. Schimpf to ensure that all of your questions are answered and that you are a good fit for the procedure. In general, patients should have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30 and cellulite that is determined to be in the right (generally mild to moderate) stage for treatment. Dr. Schimpf also considers factors such as your lifestyle and your ability to maintain a near-ideal weight for your body shape. All of this, in addition to your personal goals and input, will be taken into account so that you can form the best possible treatment plan alongside Dr. Schimpf.
