VelaShape

VelaShape™ is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas in as little as 4-6 treatments.

How VelaShape works

VelaShape™ features the revolutionary elōs™ combination of Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage.

The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime.

Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers.

The result:

  • Gradual smoothing of skin's surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
  • Circumferential Reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area

In a clinical multi-center study, 85% of the treated areas have reported Circumferential Reduction of thighs of at least 1cm; ranging up to 7.2cm in reduction.

With VelaShape™ it is easy to enhance your body, improve your lifestyle and feel better about yourself!

What is elōs™ Technology?

elōs is the first and only technology that simultaneously harnesses the power of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy.

Developed by Intense Pulse Light inventor/patent-holder, Dr. Shimon Eckhouse and master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel. This revolutionary technology platform effectively overcomes the safety and procedural limitations of intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional lasers.

The elōs Difference:

  • Radio Frequency is a highly controllable energy heat source, works synergistically with optical energy
  • Enables the use of light energy at a level that is safe for all skin types
  • No additional risk to the epidermis
  • Precisely targets areas "preheated" by optical energy
  • Contact cooling on skin's surface provides increased comfort and safety

The VelaShape™ procedure featuring the revolutionary elōs™ technology enables you to comfortably and safely achieve a toned, contoured and well sculpted body without enduring downtime.

Common Questions

How does VelaShape™ work?

VelaShape™ uses combined energies known as elōs™ to precisely target and heat fatty tissues within the treatment area. In addition, the vacuum and tissue manipulation evens out the skin to reveal a smoother figure.

On what body areas can I be treated for Circumference Reduction?

With VelaShape™, you can be treated on body areas such as the thighs and buttocks. The two applicators (VSmooth & VContour) on the VelaShape™ device are designed for large and small body areas; therefore, treatment is safe and effective.

How quickly will I notice a change?

Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment - with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother. Results in Circumference and Cellulite Reduction will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session.

How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?

In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of about 1 inch post treatment series. In clinical trials, the range of Circumferential Reduction was between 0.5-3 inches.

How do I improve and maintain the VelaShape™ results?

Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

FDA cleared the device as safe and effective for all skin types and colors. Short term effects can include mild bruising or redness.
