Results in circumference reduction is seen from the first to second session and cellulite improvement is noticed in as few as 4 sessions.
How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?
In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of 1 inch post treatment. In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5 – 3 inches.
Is treatment safe?
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short- or long-term health effects.
Does it hurt?
Most patients find VelaShape comfortable – like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear red for several hours.
Are results permanent?
Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically.
Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
