Treat yourself to a smoother, sexier figure!
Looking to improve the shape and contour of your body?
Velashape in NYC is a powerful way to reshape your body without the need for surgical intervention.
The machine which reduces the appearance of cellulite and dissolves fatty tissue is FDA approved; it uses four simultaneous impacts; RF (Radio frequency) wave and infrared light as well as mechanical massage and vacuum. The net result is a firmer, smoother appearance after a number of sessions.
Radio frequency waves and infrared light breaks down the cell walls of the fatty tissue, at the same time it increases oxygen levels deep down in the tissue. With the addition of roller massage and vacuum the result is an improvement in body shape, Velashape treatments are ideal for toning, firming and tightening the skin.
Once a week treatments for four or five weeks is required to see the initial results, depending on the condition of your body it may be necessary to schedule several more sessions before you begin to see the anticipated results. Each session lasts anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour, the time is dependent on the area covered. The beauty of non-surgical Velashape in NYC is there is no down-time, once the session is over you can go right back to whatever your normal activity is.
The procedure is quite simple, the infrared and RF energies are delivered to the correct area of the body using a hand held device. The technician passes the wand over the skin; the device includes rollers and uses a vacuum action as well. The target area is heated, the heat causes the fat cells to shrink and tighten, lymphatic drainage is also increased which results in smoother skin as the “dimpled” skin surface which accompanies cellulite is reduced. Once the treatments have been completed the patient should see a significant improvement of skin tone, the skin will be firmer and tighter.
As the treatment is non-invasive there is no need for anesthesia, some people report that they feel as if they are getting a warm, deep tissue massage. There are no after effects although the area that was treated might appear pink from the heat for a short time, the treated area may continue to feel warm for a few hours but neither the flushed appearance nor the feeling of warmth will have any long lasting effect. As the treatment causes lymphatic drainage there may be an increase in urination, this is normal as the fat cells are being absorbed into the body and expelled naturally.
How VelaShape works
The secret behind VelaShape NYC is Elos – the revolutionary technology that combines four powerful energies:
- Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF)
- Infrared Light energies
- Negative pressure (vacuum) and
- Tissue manipulation (mechanical massage)
- Due to TGA rules, we are unable to describe the therapeutic effect in detail, however we will explain the process in full at a complimentary consultation.
Clinically supported results
The results of recent clinical studies using VelaShape NYC technology show:
Improvement in shape and contour
- Treatments impact and remodel the targeted subcutaneous fat layer. Fat cells showed alteration in physical integrity with various forms of cell membrane rupture and/or reduction of fat tissue mass in treated areas (observed through biopsy studies)
- Circumferential reduction of the thighs of an average of 2cms, ranging up to 5.1cms.
- Circumference reduction of arms of 0.6cm reduction on average.
- Circumferential reduction of the hips of 3.2cm reduction on average.
- Circumferential reductions of 4.18cm on thighs, 5.73cm on abdomen, and 5.86cm around hips were achieved on average.
- Average circumferential reductions of 5.17cm from the abdomen, and 3.50cm from the thigh. These reductions were sustained 4 weeks later on the abdomen and thigh at 3.17cm and 3.50cm respectively, and one year later at 3.83cm and 3.13cm respectively without maintenance
- On post-pregnancy women, an average circumferential reduction of 5.93cm on the buttock, 2.5cm on the thigh and 7.37cm on the abdomen area.
Improvement in skin tone and smoothness
- Average improvement for all patients on the appearance of cellulite was 65% reduction.
- Clinical improvement averaging 50% reduction in cellulite appearance.
- Patient based assessment of cellulite and skin texture was 62% improvement and blinded doctor based evaluation of improvement was 40%.
- 50% of the subjects experienced significant visual improvement in cellulite and skin texture greater than 51%.
- All patients reported skin contraction as a result of the treatment.
- Skin and cellulite appearance continued to improve in 37.5% of subjects up to 8 weeks after the last treatment.
- Patient assessment of improvement was an average of 75% improvements at 3 months post treatment (62% by physicians) and 50% improvement at 6 months post treatment (50% by physicians), with no maintenance.
- Significant improvement in skin laxity and tightening was noted by both the physician and patients.
What to expect during your VelaShape NYC treatment
A lubricating spray is applied prior to treatment and you’ll feel a deep, soothing heat in the targeted area. No body stockings or suits are required.
Patients have compared the feeling of the treatment to the sensation of an intense workout or a deep tissue massage. Some patients find the treatment so relaxing they drift to sleep. If you experience discomfort we can reduce settings to cater to your level of tolerance (however the higher the settings the more effective the treatment).
Aside from a hot sensation, certain patients experience a temporary redness in the treatment area. Some bruising may be possible; this will be reabsorbed by the body in a few days. You may resume your normal daily activities immediately after the session, even sports activities. Most patients go straight back to work or straight to the gym. Treatments don’t involve sweating, so you will not need a shower afterwards.
Patients may notice a slight temporary increase in urine output following treatment. At least 2 and up to 4 litres of water per day is strongly recommended.
