Vela Body Contouring
An estimated 80% of women over the age of 20 have cellulite. Statistics such as these have led to an increase in the demand for body shaping treatments. Syneron, the company that manufactures VelaShape is the market leader and the VelaShape II® has nearly five years of clinical experience under it's belt. This laser offers patients the best non-surgical solution for safe and effective body treatments.
How VelaShape II® Works
VelaShape II® is the first FDA-approved non-invasive medical device for circumferential fat reduction and cellulite reduction. This procedure combines heat in the form of radio frequency and infrared light with a vacuum and specially designed rollers. The infrared light targets more superficially and is increased for cellulite reduction treatments, heating the tissue down to the dermis, up to about 5mm in depth. Higher levels of radio frequency are used for circumferential reduction, heating the tissue down to the subcutis layer from 2-20mm in depth. Working simultaneously with the heat, a vacuum and specially designed rollers manipulate and smooth out the skin enabling precise targeting of energy to the tissue, safely and efficiently. This procedure increases the metabolism of stored energy in the body, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces the size of the actual fat chamber.
VelaShape II® Treatment Areas and Benefits
The ultimate result is a reduction in the circumference of the treated area and an overall smoother appearance of the skin's surface in as few as 5 treatment sessions; making you look and feel more youthful. With VelaShape II® you can be treated for Circumferential Reduction and Cellulite Reduction on the thighs, buttocks, love handles, and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime. The safety and effectiveness of VelaShape II® has been demonstrated in both multi-center clinical trials and in more than 3 million independent treatments performed on patients globally.
