The Body: Body Fat

VelaShape III™

How it works?


Is a painless, non-surgical fat reduction and body firming treatment without downtime. It is a safe treatment for all skin types.

How does Velashape III™ work?

It uses a combination of IR (Infra-Red) coupled with the latest RF technologies to create deep heating of the fat cells, surrounding connective fibrous bands and the underlying dermal collagen fibers that cause cellulites.

The concurrent application of vacuum and mechanical therapy, allows for deeper and faster heat penetration. This promotes an increase in tissue circulation, lymphatic drainage, cellular metabolism and collagen depositories. Furthermore, it stimulates fibroblast activity and remodels the extracellular matrix.

The result is a localised reduction of fat, volume and an overall improvement in skin surface, texture and laxity.

  • 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. One fact remains true, though: an estimated 85% to 98% of women over the age of 16 have cellulite, regardless of their size, shape or weight.

  • How quickly will I notice a change?

    Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen after the first treatment - the surface of the skin in the treated area will feel smoother and firmer. Circumferential reduction will be seen from the first to the second session, and cellulite improvement is noticed in as few as 4 sessions.

  • What sort of results can I expect?

    In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of 1 – 3 centimeters post 1 treatment. A recent study showed 100% of patients had at least 1.5 cm reduction.**

  • Is the treatment safe?

    Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colours. There are no reported short-term or long-term health effects.

  • Are VelaShape III™ treatments painful?

    Most patients find VelaShape III™ comfortable - like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear pink for several hours.

  • Are results permanent?

    Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended that you receive maintenance treatments periodically. Like all techniques, non-surgical or surgical, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

** The safety and effectiveness of VelaShape III™ technology has been demonstrated through multi-centre clinical trials. VelaShape III™ is FDA-cleared for cellulite and abdominal circumference reduction.
