VelaShape 3 is a non-invasive treatment that uses a combination of technologies to contour your body and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Vacuum technology manipulates your skin while infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue.
After 3-6 treatments, patients typically notice a reduction in both circumferences and in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas. The surface of the skin will feel smoother and firmer, too. Some patients see results after their first visit, and in its clinical trials, VelaShape 3 led to a reduction of one full dress size after a series of treatments.
What causes cellulite?
There is no definite explanation for why cellulite occurs. While it may be the result of an unhealthy lifestyle, there may be other causes, including genetics or hormonal changes.
What sort of results can I expect?
In clinical trials, the body contouring power of VelaShape led to a reduction of one whole dress size after treatment.
How quickly will I notice a change after velashape?
You will begin to notice gradual improvement of the treated area right away as your skin’s surface starts to feel smoother and firmer. Over time you will also notice a smaller circumference throughout the treated area as well as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite, and best results will be seen at about 10 weeks.
How long do the results last? are follow-up treatments needed?
Following your treatment regimen, it is recommended that you periodically receive maintenance VelaShape treatments. Like all techniques, invasive or non-invasive, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regimen.
How many treatment will I need?
Typically it takes 3-6 treatments to achieve the best results. It is often possible to substitute one longer treatment session for up to three shorter sessions. Your physician will determine the best treatment plan for you.

How does the velashape III work?
Velashape III uses a combination of technologies to contour your body and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Vacuum technology manipulates your skin while infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue.
This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture
How is the velashape III improved compared to the older versions?
The latest VelaShape device uses higher energies very safely. As a result, treatments are shorter and you can see results faster. Some patients now report visible results after their first visit. To know more schedule an appointment with our German Board Dermatologist Dr. Oana petrica
