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.
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.
