Body Contouring Benefits of the VelaShape II System

VelaShape is the FDA-cleared medical treatment for reducing the appearance of cellulite, and is currently available at hundreds of medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers around the country. The body contouring device is designed to emit bi-polar frequency and infrared light waves deep into the skin tissues to shrink the fat cells and smooth out the skin.

Syneron, the maker of VelaShape, has recently introduced the VelaShape II system that promises shorter treatment sessions and options to optimize each treatment to deliver better results. Here’s a close look at how the VelaShape II system works, and if you may be a good candidate for this body contouring procedure:

How VelaShape II Works

VelaShape II is the first FDA-cleared medical solution for circumferential reduction, and the first FDA Class II-cleared platform for cellulite reduction. The system is designed to temporarily reduce inches around ‘problem’ areas such as the waist, hips, thighs, stomach and arms using a combination of heat and light energy that affect the dermal tissues. The body contouring device is also effective for reducing cellulite temporarily as it heats up the fat cells and causes a slight tissue contraction.
The VelaShape II system is designed with elos™ Technology to reach deep into the dermis to affect the fatty tissue, as well as smoothing out the upper layers of the skin where cellulite is more pronounced. The non-invasive procedure is typically performed in under 30 minutes per treatment area, and most patients report that it is a comfortable, deep therapeutic treatment.
VelaShape II treatments are administered using the Vsmooth and Vcontour applicators that help to deliver heat energy deep into the dermal tissues and improve results.

Key Body Shaping Benefits of the VelaShape II System

The VelaShape II System promises clinically-proven results in as little as four treatments. The original VelaShape system required at least four to six treatments to see noticeable results, and the treatment sessions could cause a certain level of discomfort.
The VelaShape II system has been performed over 3 million times in patients around the world, and results of recent studies show an average reduction of more than 2 centimeters in thigh circumference, and up to a 60% overall improvement in skin texture after five sessions.
Some of the key benefits of the VelaShape II system include:
  • Reduced inches after liposuction
  • Smooths out skin after weight loss
  • Reshapes and tones loose skin
  • Reduces appearance of cellulite
  • Can treat skin on the abdomen, buttocks or neck in less than thirty minutes
  • Proven safe and effective for treating cellulite
  • Zero downtime
  • Easy to administer
  • Highly-controllable energy heat source with the elos technology
  • Few risk of damage to the epidermis
  • Targeted treatment
If you are undergoing a body contouring treatment for the first time, you will need to set up a consultation with a specialist to discuss your goals and expectations from the VelaShape system.
