Featured Benefits of VelaShape:
Dr. Tess Mauricio of San Diego, who participated in the early FDA trials of VelaShape, details the benefits and technology behind this new treatment.
By using VelaShape's Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and Infrared Light - plus tissue mobilization combined with suction, the appearance of cellulite is reduced and problem areas are re-contoured.
Cellulite is usually most obvious in women around the thighs, tummy, hips, arms, and buttocks. VelaShape can eliminate cellulite in all or any of these areas. You do not need to be overweight or a certain age to have cellulite. Even very young and very thin women are affected.
How much improvement can I expect from VelaSmooth / VelaShape Cellulite Treatment?
All patients in the FDA studies had marked improvement in the appearance of cellulite as well as reduction in the hip circumference. Average improvement for all patients on the appearance of cellulite was 65% reduction. Hip perimeters were reduced 3.2cm on average, and all patients reported feeling skin contraction as a result of the treatment. Many patients reported cellulite elimination. You can expect a dramatic reduction of cellulite in any area which you elect to improve.
Is there any "downtime" with VelaSmooth Cellulite Reduction Treatment or with VelaShape?
No. You may return to your regular activities immediately after your treatment.
"In a study conducted in our center looking at the VelaShape for body contouring and cellulite reduction, subjects saw visibly noticeable reduction in the circumference of the treated areas as well as improvement in skin tone, texture and tightness.
What was most impressive and exciting for patients was that results were seen in 4 or fewer treatments. The majority of patients saw results after just the first two treatments."
Sometimes misreferred to as BellaShape, Vella Shape or Vela Shape. On February 13, 2008, literally thousands of consumers and physicians have searched American Health and Beauty for variations of the term Bella Shape and BelaShape.
