Can Velashape™ Get Rid of My Cellulite? in Boca Raton, FL

VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that helps reduce the appearance of cellulite as well as the circumference of your thighs and abdomen.

How Does Velashape Work?

You’ll typically need 3 VelaShape treatment sessions, but treatment is also available where you’ll need only one session.

It utilizes several types of technology – infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency energy, and a vacuum. This technology heats the fat cells, connective tissues, and the supporting collagen fibers. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which makes your skin look more supple and youthful. Your skin will also have less sagging and have an improved texture. Many patients also report an improved appearance of stretchmarks.

Your provider will cleanse the areas to be treated, and a handheld device will then be rolled over the targeted areas. The tissue will be heated, which causes fat cells to shrink and melt. The rollers will manipulate your skin to create a firmer, smoother look. The VelaShape procedure will take anywhere from about 40 minutes to an hour depending on the size and number of areas being treated. You’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately afterward.

Results may be noticeable after just one session depending on, but these improvements will have to be maintained over time with more treatments.
