VelaShape III body shaping and contouring treatments are completely non-invasive, and most patients liken the sensation to a warm, deep tissue massage. While treatment sensation varies from patient to patient, the VelaShape III treatments are designed to accommodate the individual sensitivity and comfort levels.
During the treatment the handheld device will be placed against your skin. You’ll feel a gentle suction as the device pulls the skin’s fatty layer closer to the energy source, which maximizes exposure to the infrared light and RF energy. Next you’ll feel a warming sensation which is most commonly described as feeling like a hot stone massage.
The VelaShape III combines four technologies in one with infrared light, bi-polar radiofrequency energy, vacuum technology, and massage rollers that all work in harmony.
This treatment works by creating a deep heating to the dermal layer where collagen fibers, connective tissue, and fat cells reside, with the goal of shrinking and breaking them down. The combination of head and mechanical function of vacuum work together to boost the production of collagen while enhancing cellular metabolism. This provides targeted circumferential reduction and improvement of skin laxity.
