VELASHAPE is different in that it can only be obtained at a qualified physician's office. It is the first FDA approved device of its kind that uses multiple technologies to target celulite and fat noninvasively to help smooth out the appearance of dimpled skin and actually help tighten and contour the body at the same time. It's effect essentially lies in the fact that it uses radiofrquency energy (bipolar), infrared light along with mechanical manipulation and rollers to bring the skin and target closer to the light energies. Scientific studies have actually shown a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and fat. Essentially the energies used in the device help build collagen, improve skin texture, tighten the skin and locally metabolize fat.
When you get your Velashape treatment, make sure the office staff is well trained in the procedure as it is very technique dependent. They have to spend an acceptable duration of time at the targeted body location to heat the dermis and subdermis adequately. We have gotten great results with Velashape at our office, Revive (Beverly hills, CA).
