Anti-Cellulite Treatment


(6 times stronger than Velashape, 3 times stronger than Velashape II)

What Is VelaShape III?

The name is confusing, because there was VelaShape I and II before, and neither device was great because they both required multiple treatments, as well as frequent follow-up treatments to maintain results. We try to explain to our patients that the latest VelaShape III is NOTHING like Vela I or II, so they cannot compare the new machine to the old. However, the names and numbers do make it confusing for the consumer to know exactly which device is being used, so we’d like to try and explain why we are so intrigued and happy with the new VelaShape III.  Overall, VelaShape III is now one of the most advanced technology that is FDA-cleared for reduction of cellulite and circumferential fat-reduction. The only thing is that results are not yet permanent, however you may achieve long-lasting results with a follow-up treatment twice annually to maintain very acceptable results!


How does it work?

VelaShape III technology combines infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency energy and vacuum, which causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This promotes the stimulation of the growth of new collagen and elastin, which can result in a localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture. VelashapeIII does work and is the only non-invasive machine to combine four different technologies including IR(infrared), Bi-Polar RF(radio-frequency)and mechanical tissue manipulation using a pulsed vacuum and massage rollers. The combination of the IR and vacuum coupled RF technologies causes deep heating of connective tissue, which in return stimulates collagen. With the series of 5-6 treatments, one week apart we have seen significant improvement in cellulite and skin elasticity. It should be remembered that it is not possible to remove cellulite completely, but only temporarily reduction of its appearance. To maintain the results, follow up treatments is required.

What can I expect from VelaShape III treatments?

What is the VelaShape III procedure like?

Most patients find VelaShape III comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. To combat this discomfort, treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post-treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance of the treatment area that may last a few to several hours post-treatment.

VelaShape III Mechanism of Action

VelaShape III utilizes vacuum technology to manipulate your skin while infrared light (IR) and bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energies may gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue.

VelaShape III technology combines infrared light, bipolar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in a localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.


What is Carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy is a new, simple and proven anti-aging treatment, that dramatically reduces the appearance of cellulite by improving local tissue metabolism and perfusion. Treatments are fast, comfortable and effective for a high percentage of patients.

How does Carboxytherapy work?

Every day we breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Carbon Dioxide is also the signal for poor blood circulation in the body. All cells in our body, regardless of their job release as their waste product carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is the “cost of doing business” for all cells in our bodies. When we breathe oxygen into our lungs, the red blood cells pick up the oxygen in our lungs and carry it to our tissues until they encounter an area that has been working hard and has an excess of carbon dioxide. By providing small amounts of carbon dioxide gas just below the surface of the skin, we are tricking it into increasing the blood circulation to that area. Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and stretch marks have all been shown to benefit from increased blood circulation.

Is it painful?

Some patients experience a light tingling sensation near the treatment area. It disappears within a matter of seconds. The area surrounding the treatment area may feel warmer for 10 to 20 minutes due to the increased circulation.

Carboxytherapy for cellulite and fat reduction

Carboxytherapy has been shown to destroy fat cells, without harming the surrounding skin structures. Carboxytherapy has been successfully used to shrink “double chins,” reduce “back fat” that bulges along the bra-line, reduce fatty upper arms, and to treat cellulite on the legs, all non-surgically.

Carboxytherapy for stretch marks and scars

Carboxytherapy can be helpful in softening stretch marks by increasing the blood flow to these poorly vascularized regions and allowing them to constrict and contract, making them narrower and blending them better with the surrounding skin.
