Velashape Your Contour This Fall
- Posted on: Oct 15 2019
Stubborn fat is tougher than a feral pig outside Amarillo. But at Creative Image Laser Solutions, we’re up to the task of getting rid of it. With truSculpt, SmartLipo, AquaLipo, and VelaShape we give you four ways to slim your contour.
We’ve had some recent blogs about those first three options, so this month let’s get into the three-pronged approach to body contouring offered by VelaShape.
How does VelaShape work?
VelaShape is an innovate treatment that involves a three-pronged approach to eradicating fat and smoothing the appearance of cellulite. VelaShape uses bi-polar radiofrequency energy, infrared light energy, and vacuum technology. The combination causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and underlying collagen fibers. This heating, combined with vacuum pressure, stimulates growth of new collagen and elastin (the two proteins responsible for skin support). The result is a reduction in skin laxity and body volume, and improved skin structure and texture.
What can you expect from a VelaShape treatment?
Most of our Creative Image Laser Solutions patients equate the feeling of a VelaShape treatment to a deep tissue massage. This procedure involves slight pulling of the skin, which is a result of a pulsed vacuum device that prepares the skin and positions it appropriately for treatment. Patients also feel a warm sensation from the radiofrequency and light energy. Overall, nothing in the treatment will make you feel uncomfortable. A VelaShape session usually takes 20 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
What can you expect after a VelaShape treatment?
For several hours after the procedure, you may continue to feel a sensation of warmth in the treatment areas. That may not be what you want on a hot Brownwood July day, but in November or December that may be a good thing! There may also be minor redness, bruising, and swelling, which are normal side effects of the procedure and will subside quickly. No recovery time is needed and you can return to your normal activities immediately.
While a tightening and smoothing sensation on the skin can be noticed immediately, the shrinking of the fat cells takes time. Over the course of your treatments, you will notice a reduction in both circumference and in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas. To achieve maximum results, four to six sessions are recommended.
