Body Contouring / Velashape
Body contouring is a painless treatment. You may feel a warm sensation during treatment but that’s all. The computer-controlled device delivers energy precisely into the deep layers of the skin where it will break down fat cells through a process known as lipolysis. During this part of the treatment, a cooling system and monitor is used to make sure the temperature of the skin remains at a comfortable level. It also uses radio-frequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin. This triggers a reaction in the skin, which leads to collagen contraction and over time, collagen remodelling.
What are the key benefits?
Control of the flow of the Velashape energy and constant monitoring of skin temperature to reach therapeutic thermal effect in the shortest amount of time, helps ensure maximum well-being without serious or long-lasting side effects. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes per session and long-lasting results are achieved in four sessions over a period of one to two months.
How many treatments will I need?
The best results are typically achieved after a course of treatment. Four to six sessions are usually recommended. These can be carried out every one to two weeks over a period of one to two months. Results have been shown to last for at least six months and additional treatments can be carried out if and when required for maintenance.
