WHAT PARTS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH VELASHAPE?
The Vela treatment can be applied to any body area that may need contouring: thighs, abdomen, arms, flanks and more. Wherever cellulite is bothersome for a patient, the Vela line of devices offers an effective solution to help solve the problem.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM OR MAXIMUM AGE REQUIRED TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR TREATMENT WITH VELASHAPE?
The Vela treatments are not limited by age and all patients seeking cellulite reduction and /or circumference reduction can be treated. However, the treating clinician will determine if the patient is a good candidate. In some countries, there are legal requirements for minimum age of treatment.
WHO WOULD BE AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR VELASHAPE TREATMENT?
The Vela treatment is recommended for normal to overweight patients who suffer from unsightly cellulite in the pelvic region, around the hips, abdomen, or lower limbs. For optimized results, these patients should also be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The treating clinician has the final determination for choosing the best candidates for the treatment.
WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS TO A BODY CONTOURING TREATMENT WITH VELASHAPE?
There are no major contraindications for the Vela treatment. For patients with pacemakers/defibrillator, pregnant or nursing or severe health problems, it is recommended to defer to their physician prior to commencing treatment.
WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Cellulite is a structural skin change that occurs in most post-pubertal females whether they are thin or overweight. It presents itself as a modification of skin morphology evident by skin dimpling and nodularity that occurs mainly in women on the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen, and is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance. Cellulite can occur in women of all ages and tends to become more visible with age. Over time, the skin loses its thickness and thereby enhances the visibility of the unsightly cellulite bumps.
HOW DOES VELASHAPE® WORK TO HELP GET RID OF CELLULITE?
The Vela Product line is the only non-invasive body shaping product to combine four different technologies including IR (infrared), Bi-Polar RF (radio-frequency) and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed vacuum and massage rollers. The combination of the IR and vacuum coupled RF technologies causes deep heating of the connective tissue including the fibrous septae which in turn promotes an increase in collagen depositing and local cellular metabolism resulting in a localized reduction in skin laxity and volume. The additional mechanical tissue manipulation of the Vela causes an immediate increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, both essential components for healthy skin structure. More than 3.5 million independent treatments have been performed globally to date confirming both the safety and unique efficacy of this technology.
The assurance of proven results. With over 10 years of clinical experience, more than 5 million independent treatments, and the most published studies of any medical body shaping device, VelaShape is one of the most recognized non-invasive body shaping treatments on the market today.
