VelaShape uses four different components — bipolar radiofrequencies, infrared light, vacuum, and mechanical massage — to effectively and safely combat cellulite and reshape your body. You’ll see inches disappear around your waist, hips, and thighs.
VelaShape heats dermal and hypodermal tissue at the treatment site, stimulating fat cell metabolism and reducing fat cell number and size. VelaShape’s vacuum suction technology smooths out dimples and stretches fibrous bands in the epidermis. These two processes banish cellulite.
VelaShape’s mechanical rollers gently knead the treated area, increasing circulation throughout it. This expels harmful fat cell by-products and waste by encouraging lymphatic drainage. The result is a significant reduction in the appearance of cellulite, circumferential reduction, and smoother, firmer skin.
VelaShape isn’t a weight loss treatment. Rather, it reshapes and tones your body and helps you to lose inches from your hips, thighs, and waist. Most importantly, VelaShape enhances muscle definition.
You’re an ideal candidate for VelaShape if your BMI is less than 30, and you don’t have severe cellulite, which can usually be identified by “orange peel” dimpling when you stand up or lie down.
The VelaShape Experience
Prior to your first VelaShape session, you should make sure all the areas that you’re having treated are clean. It’s also best to wear disposable paper underwear, because the treatment mainly targets your thighs, hips, and buttocks. What’s more, you’ll want to shave any hair in the treatment area the day before your procedure, and avoid other procedures that irritate your skin at least a week before treatment.
If possible, you’ll also want to use an exfoliating body wash the day before your treatment to remove loose skin particles. One week before your treatment, you should avoid aspirin, Plavix, or any other blood thinners to reduce the risk of bruising. Also, say no to alcohol: It tends to flush the skin and causes inflammation.
During your VelaShape procedure, you’ll be asked to lie down on a table, and your specialist will apply a lotion-like spray to the treatment area. She’ll then place the VelaShape machine gently on your skin, and you’ll feel a persistent rolling massage sensation that slowly begins to heat up. Slight pressure will be applied to the area as it is massaged. Many clients compare the procedure to a warm, relaxing deep tissue massage. It’s relatively short, too. Depending on the area being treated, VelaShape sessions last between 20 and 40 minutes.
Afterwards, the treated area may feel slightly warm and tender for a few hours. You may see mild bruising and redness, but this usually goes away after a few days. In rarer instances, scabbing or blistering can occur in people whose skin is quite loose.
To reap all of VelaShape’s benefits, you should undergo six treatments in one-week intervals. After the initial series of treatments, most medical professionals recommend monthly maintenance treatments for the first three months, followed by regular treatments every three months thereafter.
While you’re undergoing your VelaShape treatments, be sure to avoid salty foods, which can trigger fluid retention and adversely affect results. Also avoid simple carbohydrates, such as white flour, sugar, and white rice. These foods all increase the appearance of cellulite, because they are inflammatory and promote weight gain.
The VelaShape Difference
So many people choose VelaShape over other procedures because there is no downtime involved. You can immediately resume your life activities. Yet you might notice that your skin feels a little tighter after a VelaShape session, and you may experience such temporary, mild side effects as tenderness, slight redness, and bruising.
After receiving a series of VelaShape treatments, you’re encouraged to have monthly maintenance treatments done for the first three months, and then maintenance treatments done periodically thereafter. Your results will also last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly. This means you should:
- Drink eight glasses or more of water each day
- Avoid refined carbs and sugars
- Engage in cardio exercise at least 30 minutes a day
- Eat whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables
- Limit salt, caffeine, and alcohol intake
- Eat in moderation — don’t eat if you’re not hungry
- Consume fewer potato chips, sweets, and other similar snacks
VelaShape is so effective that people in clinical trials experienced an average of half an inch to three inches of circumferential reduction in treated areas after just four treatments. Their cellulite was reduced by over 60%. A similar clinical study showed that 85% of patients saw their thighs shrink up to three inches.
VelaShape for Your Best Shape
When it comes to accentuating muscle definition, VelaShape is highly effective in toning and slimming the thigh and buttocks area in men. In fact, the average man experiences a loss of up to five inches in these regions. What’s more, your skin will be softer. Because men rarely get cellulite, VelaShape is used as a slimming treatment, and they tend to experience less severe side effects.
VelaShape works wonders for highlighting your muscles, since it tones and lifts love handles, buttocks, thighs, and hips, Used in conjunction with diet and exercise, VelaShape can help give you the body you’ve always wanted. Muscle definition is related to body fat percentage, so to bring out more of your muscles, you’ll need to shed some fat. Here are some tips to help you do that:
- Drink at least one ounce of water per two pounds of body weight each day.
Why? Because water aids in the transportation and burning of fat. Plus, drinking lots of water helps you feel full and eat less.
- Eat breakfast.
This is because your body has been hibernating all night, and it requires nutrients to rebuild itself. Be sure to eat a full meal that contains protein, complex carbohydrates, and a piece of fruit.
- Limit sugar consumption.
While consuming sugar immediately after a workout replenishes muscle and liver glycogen stores, eating sugar at other times results in an increase in body fat percentage.
- Cycle between low-carb and high-carb days.
You should eat one gram of carbs per pound of body weight for three to five days, and then double up on that for the following one to two days, repeating the cycle.
- Don’t reduce your calories too much.
If you significantly reduce your calories in an attempt to become leaner, you’ll just end up looking flat and depleted. Instead, cut back your calories modestly. Don’t cut more than 300 calories per day.
- Eat six meals per day.
Eating smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day encourages thermogenesis, resulting in fat loss.
- Check out creatine.
This fat-burning supplement increases your resting metabolic rate, increasing your body’s fat burning abilities.
- Consume 30 grams of fiber per day.
Fiber can help you burn fat because it lowers insulin levels along with total calories, helping you to shed some pounds.
- Eat the right amount of protein.
Lots of body builders end up eating too much protein. You should eat 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight each day. This should provide your body with sufficient amino acids to maintain muscle mass.

However, nothing could be further from the truth. If you aren’t too familiar with VelaShape, it’s the only FDA–approved noninvasive body contouring device that effectively and safely contours, shapes, and slims your body by firming problem areas all in as little as four treatments.
