VelaShape is a noninvasive body contouring treatment for reducing cellulite, streching marks and achieving a toned, contoured and well-shaped body. Typical treatments include 3 to 6 sessions; however, single treatment options are also available.
The procedure provides dramatic results, making you look and feel more youthful without any downtime or significant discomfort.
VelaShape technology combines infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency energy and vacuum to heat the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibres. The process is highly efficient, and the combination of the heating and the vacuum stimulates the growth of new and improved collagen and elastin.
This results in a localised reduction of skin laxity and body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture. VelaShape causes an immediate increase in blood circulation and lymphatic drainage – both being essential components for healthy skin.
All of the above can be achieved with VelaShape. That said, in this post we are going to focus on cellulite reduction.
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled, lumpy appearance.
It usually affects the buttocks and thighs but can also occur in other areas.
Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin.

The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer below the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat that is immediately beneath it. It can develop due to poor circulation.
