If you’re struggling with stubborn pockets of fat or the appearance of cellulite on your body, VelaShape can help. This non-invasive, no-downtime treatment contours and slims the body while improving skin laxity.
The procedure combines bipolar radio frequency, infrared light, vacuum suction, and mechanical massage. The modalities effectively disrupt fat cells, improve circulation, and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
1. Take it easy
VelaShape is a non-invasive procedure that is effective at eliminating stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite on the body. The treatment combines the technology of a coolsculpting applicator with suction and rollers to gently and effectively contour your skin and smooth away the appearance of fatty deposits.
A typical treatment session lasts between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the extent of results desired. Most patients require 3-6 treatments over the course of 6-8 weeks to achieve optimal results.
During the procedure, a medical aesthetician uses a hand-held device to guide the applicator over the target areas of the body. The applicator contains rollers that create a gentle tugging sensation on the skin. This can cause some mild discomfort.
To prepare for your VelaShape treatment, you should shave the area where you plan to receive treatment and wash the treatment area thoroughly before your appointment. Keeping the skin clean prior to your appointment can reduce any post-treatment side effects, such as bruising or redness. It is also recommended to avoid waxing or any other procedures that irritate the skin in the treatment area before your appointment.
After a VelaShape treatment, you should not be under any stress or strain for several days before and after your session. It is important to rest and recover from the procedure so that your skin can heal properly. You should also eat healthy and drink plenty of water to aid in the recovery process.
VelaShape is a great option for those looking to get rid of unsightly pockets of fat and cellulite on the thighs, hips, and buttocks. However, it is not for everyone, and is best suited for those who are naturally fit and are willing to follow a strict diet and exercise regimen.
3. Drink plenty of water
Drinking plenty of water is an important step to help you recover from your VelaShape treatment. It helps you flush toxins from your body and boost your energy. It also aids in recovery by reducing swelling and bloating.
It is recommended to drink about 16 glasses of water every day for a week before and after your VelaShape treatment. This will allow your body to better dissolve broken down fat cells and remove them through your lymphatic system.
This will help your treatment achieve the best results possible. It will also help you achieve a more beautiful and smooth skin tone, and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The process also improves circulation and lymphatic flow in the targeted areas, which helps to eliminate waste products from your body. It also increases collagen production, which is a key part of cellulite reduction.
After your VelaShape treatment, the treated area will feel slightly warm and tender for a few hours. This may be followed by bruising and redness, which will fade after a few days.
You should avoid putting any lotions or oils on your skin after your VelaShape treatment. You should also avoid any blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, a week before your treatment.
During your VelaShape treatment, doctor Rokhsar uses vacuum suction and bipolar radio frequency electrical energies to target fat, connective tissue, and underlying dermal collagen fibers. This technology also stimulates the body’s natural metabolic processes, resulting in the elimination of fat and cellulite from your body.
4. Massage the treated area
VelaShape is a non-invasive treatment that eliminates cellulite and reduces the appearance of dimples and bumps. It uses a combination of radiofrequency, infrared light energy, vacuum suction and mechanical massage to break down the fibrous bands that hold fat cells together and shrink the size of the fat cells themselves.
The radiofrequency and infrared light energies heat the dermal and hypodermal tissue, causing the body to burn fat and stimulate collagen production. The vacuum suction helps to stretch the fibrous bands that are responsible for causing the dimples in the skin, and the mechanical rollers knead the area, increasing circulation and encouraging lymphatic drainage, which expel harmful fat cell byproducts.
Because the VelaShape treatment is minimally invasive, there is little downtime or recovery time. After a treatment, the skin may feel slightly warm or tender for several hours, but it will quickly go back to normal.
After a VelaShape treatment, it is recommended to gently massage the treated area using your hands and fingers in circular motions. This will help encourage lymphatic drainage, which can reduce swelling and help you look and feel more refreshed and energized.
Another beneficial effect of this massage is that it is also a good way to relax. The lymphatic system is an important part of the immune system and is responsible for helping the body remove waste and debris from the tissues, lungs and lymph nodes in the body.
Some people may experience bruising after the VelaShape treatment, but this is usually only temporary. It is recommended that you avoid aspirin, Motrin or any other blood thinners for a week prior to the treatment in order to minimize bruising and keep the procedure safe.
5. Get plenty of sleep
VelaShape treatment is a quick and painless procedure that only takes 20 to 60 minutes to complete. Our specialists will gently move a handheld device over the treated areas and apply rollers that generate a massage-like sensation. The device also produces heat, which tightens the skin and reduces cellulite. Infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency shocks also penetrate the skin, triggering fat cells to shrink and die. This process has been proven effective, with over 50% of patients reporting noticeable results after one VelaShape treatment.
It is important to get plenty of sleep and relax after a VelaShape treatment. You should also avoid vigorous exercise or heavy lifting for at least three days following your appointment. Your skin may become pink and warm for a few hours after your session, which is normal. You should also drink lots of water to help your body recover from the procedure. This will ensure that the procedure is comfortable and effective.
