VelaShape III is a simple outpatient procedure that is done over multiple sessions. There is no need for any anesthesia, and it is not a surgery or an invasive procedure.
During this highly patient-friendly procedure, the technician uses an applicator to deliver the treatment. Medical suction is first used to pull the area so the cellulite can be effectively targeted. The infrared light is the used to heat the area.
The radiofrequency energy spreads the warmth over the region and ensures there is no overheating. The deep heating this method delivers ensures that collagen and elastin production is stimulated to keep the skin firm and young. Mechanical massage is used to encourage the lymphatic-drainage process for greater fat reduction.
There are no side effects in this procedure. A warm feeling is experienced during the procedure and afterwards for a time. A session is complete within half an hour. The patient can return to their normal routine almost immediately without the burden of any downtime or recovery period.
