For Cellulite & Circumferential Reduction


VelaShape II™ is a revolutionary new cosmetic, appearance enhancement service for the unsightly cellulite that affects more than 80% of women over the age of 20. It's the only non-surgical device approved by the FDA for body shaping and cellulite reduction.

Using patented Circumferential Reduction® techniques and elós™ technology, VelaShape II™ combines radio frequency waves, infrared light, and suctioning massage to effectively reduce the size of fat cells and re-contour the skin's surface with no downtime. Clients typically see a marked improvement in a few treatment sessions. It works on all skin types and is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of cellulite in the stomach, abdomen, love handles, upper arms, hips, thighs and buttocks. It can help you achieve the body you enjoyed before bearing children or losing weight, without undergoing surgery. The result is a smoother, more regular appearance and reduction in the size of the treated area.

How VelaShape works

The secret behind VelaShape is Elos - the revolutionary technology that combines four powerful energies:

  • Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF)
  • Infrared Light energies
  • Negative pressure (vacuum)
  • Tissue manipulation (mechanical massage)

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a structural skin change that occurs in most post-pubertal females whether they are thin or overweight. It presents itself as a modification of skin morphology evident by skin dimpling and nodularity that occurs mainly in women on the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen, and is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance. Cellulite can occur in women of all ages and tends to become more visible with age. Over time, the skin loses its thickness and thereby enhances the visibility of the unsightly cellulite bumps.

How does VelaShape II work to get rid of cellulite?

The Vela Product line is the only non-invasive body shaping product to combine four different technologies including IR (infrared), Bi-Polar RF (radio-frequency) and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed vacuum and massage rollers. The combination of the IR and vacuum coupled RF technologies causes deep heating of the connective tissue including the fibrous septae which in turn promotes an increase in collagen depositing and local cellular metabolism resulting in a localized reduction in skin laxity and volume. The additional mechanical tissue manipulation of the Vela causes an immediate increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, both essential components for healthy skin structure. More than 3.5 million independent treatments have been performed globally to date confirming both the safety and unique efficacy of this technology.

What parts of the body can be treated with VelaShape II?

The Vela treatment can be applied to any body area that may need contouring: thighs, abdomen, arms, flanks and more. Wherever cellulite is bothersome for a patient, the Vela line of devices offers an effective solution to help solve the problem.

Who would be an ideal candidate for VelaShape II?

The Vela treatment is recommended for normal to overweight clients who suffer from unsightly cellulite in the pelvic region, around the hips, abdomen, or lower limbs. For optimized results, these clients should also be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

What to expect during your VelaShape treatment

A lubricating spray is applied prior to treatment and you'll feel a deep, soothing heat in the targeted area. No body stockings or suits are required.

Clients have compared the feeling of the treatment to the sensation of an intense workout or a deep tissue massage. Some individuals find the treatment so relaxing they drift to sleep. If you experience discomfort we can reduce settings to cater to your level of tolerance (however the higher the settings the more effective the treatment). Aside from a hot sensation, some people experience a temporary redness in the treatment area. Some bruising may be possible; this will be reabsorbed by the body in a few days. You may resume your normal daily activities immediately after the session, even sports activities. Most clients go straight back to work or straight to the gym. Treatments don't involve sweating, so you will not need a shower afterwards.

Clients may notice a slight temporary increase in urine output following treatment. At least 2 and up to 4 litres of water per day is strongly recommended.
