VelaShape

One of the most effective treatments against cellulite

The VelaShape device combines elōs TM technology (electro-optical synergy) and a system of vacuum and mechanical massages that gently reduces cellulite.

As the treatment area is optically heated, a soft vacuum forces the radiofrequency’s energy to penetrate the fatty tissue. This enables fat redistribution while activating the body’s metabolism.

Not only does VelaShape reduce cellulite and remodel the surface of the skin, it also helps stimulate circulation and the lymph system in particular. This in turn helps improve your body’s envelope – your skin.

What does the treatment involve?

The VelaShape device produces a massaging and warming sensation. The mechanical rollers and vacuum component gently stretch the skin in the area being treated. This enables the infrared and radiofrequency’s energy to penetrate deeper into the subcutaneous tissue.

Length of the session: 30 to 45 minutes. Frequency: 8 to 12 sessions every 1 to 2 weeks. Maintenance phase: 1 session every 3 months

Get back to your day right after treatment.

Most patients see optimal results after 8 to 12 weeks. This corresponds to the time the body needs to naturally process the destroyed fatty tissue.

Are there side effects?

Immediately after treatment, you could notice reddening of the skin, bruises or temporary edema. You could also feel a slight stretching sensation. The effects will go away quickly. In the meantime, avoid direct heat (heated pad, hot bath) on the treated area.

Is it painful?

The use of VelaShape technology can be compared to an energetic massage and the application of localized heat, such as a heating pad.

The treatment is painless. Some people may feel a slight discomfort during the first sessions, but not to the extent that they require painkillers or anesthetics.

What can I expect?

VelaShape :

  • Reduces fat deposits
  • Makes cellulite less visible
  • Remodels the skin’s surface
  • Softens, tones and firms the skin
  • Rounds out the body’s curves

Important: VelaShape treatment is not a substitute for liposuction and is not a weight loss measure. However, almost all who undergo treatment see a reduction of thigh and hip size.

The Institut owns a third generation VelaShape device – the most recent and powerful.
