VelaShape III is an advanced aesthetic body treatment focused on body contouring and cellulite reduction. Loose centimetres and tighten skin fast with no downtime.
The VelaShape III's exceptional clinical results are achieved through increased lymphatic drainage, increased cellular metabolism and fibroblast stimulation. Look forward to a reduction in loose skin volume and structure.
What is VelaShape III?
It is technology that delivers non-invasive body contouring for circumferential and cellulite reduction. Safely achieve a toned, contoured and shapely body during an average course of 4 treatments.
How does the VelaShape III work?
4 slimming technologies are combined to 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 localised reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
Heat is the fundamental mechanism for improvement of skin texture and cellulite; and changes in fat metabolism. Reaching temperature end point of 43-45 degrees Celcius and maintaining it over a certain amount of time is key to treatment success, on a strict bi-weekly basis, giving you optimal results in fewer session.
Radio Frequency heat penetrates in to deeper layers of the dermis whereas infrared is more superficial. In the dermis controlled thermal injury improves collagen formation and metabolic changes to the fat cell. In the hypodermis the effect is on connective and fatty tissue.
The vacuum increases penetration depth driving heat deeper into the tissue, negative pressure from the vacuum augments circulation by opening up compressed blood vessels. The combination of vacuum suction and mechanical rollers increases lymphatic drainage. Improved fat metabolism via deep heating with Radio Frequency allows adipocytes to act metabolically in a more active fashion resulting in decreasing of the fat cell size and number.
What is the science behind VelaShape III?
Powered by elos technology, VelaShape III combines infrared, bi-polar Radio Frequency and vacuum to precisely heat the tissue up to 3mm and 15mm depth respectively. The optimal design of the electrodes and the concurrent application of vacuum allows for deeper and faster heat penetration. This promotes an increase in circulation, lymphatic drainage, cellular metabolism and collagen depositing. Furthermore, it stimulates fibroblast activity and remodels the extracellular matrix.
The combination of infrared and vacuum coupled with Radio Frequency technologies causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective fibrous septae and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. Efficient heating of the fat cells is achieved by higher output of the Radio Frequency. The result is a localised reduction in skin laxity, volume and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
What does the VelaShape III procedure feel like?
Most patients experience only mild discomfort during the treatment and describe the feeling as an intense warm deep tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjustable to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours. Some bruising may be visible for a few days after the treatment but should clear up within a week; patients may feel tender in the area for a few days afterwards.
Pre-and Post Treatment Care:
You are under no obligation to book the treatment with us after your consultation, however, should you do wish to book a treatment this can be done for you after your consultation or at a later date via phone or e-mail.
At Skinlogic we can assure you that we value your health and wellbeing. You will only be seen and treated by qualified and experienced professionals.
During the treatment
You will also be asked to sign the consent form once everything has been fully explained to you and you have had time to ask any questions you may have.
Following that, a clinical assessment will be done to evaluate the area and specific measurements will be done. With your consent we may also take before and after pictures.
