VelaShape III is a new, non-invasive treatment that uses a combination of technologies to contour your body and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Vacuum technology manipulates your skin while infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue.
After 3-6 treatments, patients typically notice a reduction in both circumference and in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas. The surface of the skin will feel smoother and firmer too. Some patients see results after their first visit, and in clinical trials, VelaShape III led to a reduction of one full dress size after a series of treatments.
VelaShape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typically 3 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.
VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment. VelaShape uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t rs.each. The ideal VelaShape patient is someone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2. Ask Dr. Tanne if you’re a candidate for VelaShape treatment.
VelaShape technology combines infrared light, bi-polar 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 localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted 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.
The VelaShape treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short-term or long-term side effects.
Dr. Tanne combines several non-invasive technologies to customize your treatment to achieve the best possible results. Specifically she uses UltraShape Power™, which can be a more powerful method to reduce fat deposits without impacting the overlying skin. We can then combine this with VelaShape III™ to tighten the skin and improve overlying cellulite.
VelaShape III consistently produces improvement however it is not a cure for cellulite. Therefore, in order for you to continue to experience the benefit of this non-invasive cellulite treatment Dr. Tanne recommends that you have “tune-up” treatments at least four times a year, maintain a stable diet and continue to exercise.
Typically it takes 3-6 treatments to achieve the best results. It is often possible to substitute one longer treatment session for up to three shorter sessions. Dr. Tanne and her staff will determine the best treatment plan for you.
The latest VelaShape device uses higher energies very safely. As a result, treatments are shorter and you can see results faster. Some patients now report visible results after their first visit.
