What is VelaShape?

Cellulite is a common problem that impacts mostly women but sometimes men as well. It causes the skin to have a dimpled, lumpy appearance and most often appears on the abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Other areas of concern include the neck, arms and flank. VelaShape is a safe and effective, FDA approved body contouring system that helps you look and feel more confident by minimizing the appearance of cellulite. After just three sessions at our Scottsdale location, most patients report enjoying a more toned and contoured body.

Who is VelaShape for?

VelaShape is FDA approved for all skin types and skin colors. It is non-surgical and no anesthetic is necessary during the treatment. Therefore, most women and men are good candidates for it. Exceptions include those with pacemakers or metal implants in the treatment area and pregnant women. Patients in good general health and those with realistic expectations enjoy the highest levels of satisfaction post-treatment.

Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale will schedule a consultation prior to your first VelaShape treatment. At this time, we will discuss your medical history, expectations, concerns and goals, as well as analyze the treatment area. This information helps us best determine if VelaShape is the right choice for you.

What Should I Expect after VelaShape?

Most patients see gradual and cumulative results after their VelaShape treatments. Minimal and less noticeable results are typical after the first session and sometimes the second. By the third, the treated area will appear smoother and tighter. Most patients notice a more toned appearance and may even look as if they have lost weight. Cellulite and that “cottage cheese” appearance drastically improve. These results are not permanent, but they can last for a year or more before another round of treatments is necessary.

What Does a VelaShape Treatment Consist of?

VelaShape is non-invasive and FDA approved. Patients only need to consider a few pre-treatment recommendations to prepare for their appointment. Drink a lot of water for two or three days before your treatment. If there is hair in the treatment area, shave so as to allow the applicator to glide smoothly across the skin.

VelaShape treatments typically take between 20 and 60 minutes. Larger areas (i.e.: the abdomen) typically take longer than smaller areas (i.e.: the neck). Arrive about 15 minutes early so we have time for any paperwork or questions. Your aesthetician will then use a warming, hand-held device and move it gently over the skin. Rollers on the device create a slight tugging sensation, but it is not painful. The procedure is often described as similar to a warm, deep tissue massage.

VelaShape requires no downtime. You can return home or resume normal activities immediately after your appointment. Avoid more rigorous exercise in the hours following your treatment. Mild exercise like walking is recommended as it helps the lymphatic system in metabolizing fat release. Eat smaller meals and avoid alcohol for three days post-treatment.
