VelaShape® for Body Contouring Los Angeles

Excess Body Fat

As a result of factors such as genetics, poor dietary habits, and the aging process, many people begin to develop pockets of excess fatty tissue on their bodies. This unwanted fatty tissue can create self-consciousness and embarrassment in social situations. To contour away those trouble areas, try Velashape® treatment.

VelaShape for Body Contouring

VelaShape is an effective method of reducing the volume of the upper thighs, arms, love handles, abdomen, and various other areas of the body. With the help of this procedure, the stubborn fat cells are shrunk in size, reducing the area’s overall circumference.

VelaShape is quite convenient. It is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, meaning that does not involve scalpels and will not create any scars or result in weeks or months of recovery time. It is FDA-approved and extremely safe for all skin types.

This treatment is best for those with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of below 30. If your BMI is higher than this, VelaShape may still be helpful for you.

What to Expect During the Procedure

VelaShape features four mechanisms of contouring and skin revitalization: mechanical massage, infrared light energy, vacuum suction, and radiofrequency energy. Over the course of around 30 to 40 minutes, this comfortable treatment will use all of these mechanisms to reduce the circumference of the treated area and tighten the skin.

Vacuum treatment and mechanical massage smooth out the skin in order to aid in removing toxins and the byproducts of fat cells, encourage better blood circulation, and cause an increase in lymphatic drainage.

Once the skin is smoothed, it will be easier to effectively treat the region with elōs™ technology. This technology delivers radiofrequency waves and infrared light to the area, heating the dermal and hypodermal skin layers. This heat increases the metabolism of the fat cells and makes them much smaller. The precision of this technique makes it so tissues in the area stay free from harm during treatment.

After the Procedure

After your VelaShape treatment, you will be able to immediately return to your typical daily schedule without downtime. This stands in contrast to surgeries, which require patients to rest and heal afterwards for a time.

Multiple treatments will be needed in order to achieve effective body contouring. Typically, six treatments are recommended, but this number may vary according to factors such as the body type and aesthetic goals of the patient.

After one to two months, patients typically notice a circumferential reduction of anywhere from a half inch to three inches in the treated area. The skin will also be smoother and tighter. The results of a VelaShape treatment can be best preserved with the help of lifestyle changes such as a consistent exercise regimen and a proper diet.
