How Does It Work? Velashape uses a combination of radio frequency, massage, and suction techniques to effectively breakdown cellulite and fat. The radio frequency and infrared technology heat the treatment area in order to begin the process of melting and breaking down fat and cellulite. This heat goes deep within the skin to generate the reproduction of collagen in order to provide a tighter and smoother toned skin. Once the treatment area has been
heated, Velashape combines the use of vacuum and massage to gently breakdown the cellulite allowing it to be re-absorbed into the body. It is recommended that individuals keep themselves very hydrated following each treatment to allow the toxins to filter out of the body naturally. For maximum results, Dr. Salomon recommends that patients schedule 6 to 8 Velashape sessions and have the treatment performed once per week. Sessions last approximately 45- 60 minutes and Velashape is completely non-invasive allowing patients to return to their normal routine following each treatment. Patients have reported mild discomfort caused from the heat produced by the radio frequency; this discomfort subsides once the session is complete. Some patients have also experience mild bruising, which will also subside within a few days. As with any other weight reduction therapy, it is important to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle in which proper nutrition and exercise are incorporated. Dr. Salomon recommends that all his patients exercise regularly to maintain the results generated by Velashape.
