Pregnancy and childbirth are some of the most rewarding experiences for new and seasoned moms alike, but it’s no secret that having kids can change your body. If some of those changes ー like loose skin, cellulite, or stretch marks ー are keeping you from feeling like the best version of yourself, nonsurgical VelaShape could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
How VelaShape Works
VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring device that uses a combination of infrared light, radiofrequency energy, and vacuum to deeply, yet gently heat targeted fat cells, connective tissue, and collagen fibers. The result is stimulated collagen fibers, localized fat reduction, and released bands of connective tissue, leading to smoother, tighter skin and noticeably improved cellulite.
You’ll likely see optimal results after several VelaShape treatments, but the good news is that most people describe this process as being pain-free and comfortable. In fact, some people describe VelaShape as feeling like a warm massage. Expect results to develop gradually and continue to improve after each treatment, with final results being visible around two to three months after your final appointment.
Common Questions about VelaShape Post-Pregnancy
How soon after giving birth can I get VelaShape?
It is best to wait until your body has fully recovered and has returned to your normal, stable pre-pregnancy weight. Generally speaking, this can take a minimum of four months, but may take longer for some women.
Can I get VelaShape while breastfeeding?
Because VelaShape has not been tested on women who are breastfeeding, it is best to err on the side of caution and hold off on treatment until you are finished breastfeeding.
Does VelaShape treat stretch marks?
In some cases, VelaShape has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of stretch marks in treated areas. However, your results will depend on the type and severity of stretch marks you would like to treat. You can book a complimentary consultation with one of our VelaShape experts to learn more about how VelaShape may be able to help you meet your specific goals.
Will VelaShape help me lose weight?
No, VelaShape is not a weight loss tool, but it can help you address localized trouble spots and dimples caused by cellulite. You’ll see the best VelaShape results if you are able to reach or come close to your weight loss goals prior to treatment.
Other Post-Pregnancy Body Contouring Options
Are tricky trouble spots like love handles, saddle bags, or a belly pooch keeping you from reaching your post-pregnancy fitness goals? Other nonsurgical body contouring devices like CoolSculpting or EMSCULPT may be able to help.
Like VelaShape, these treatments are nonsurgical and do not require downtime. Although CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT aren’t intended to be weight loss tools, they can help you trim away exercise-resistant fat in challenging areas and help you rebuild abdominal muscles.
