If you have a specific question not addressed here, contact one of our locations, or visit our Ask The Experts page to ask a question online.

How does VelaShape™ work?

VelaShape™ uses combined energies known as elos™ to precisely target and heat fatty tissues within the treatment area. In addition, the vacuum and tissue manipulation evens out the skin to reveal a smoother, tighter figure.

On what body areas can I be treated for Circumference Reduction?

With VelaShape™, you can be treated on body areas such as the thighs and buttocks. The two applicators (VSmooth & VContour) on the VelaShape™ device are designed for large and small body areas; therefore, treatment is safe and effective.

How quickly will I notice a change?

Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment - with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, firmer and tighter. Results in Circumference and Cellulite Reduction will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session.

How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?

In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of about 1 inch post treatment series. In clinical trials, the range of Circumferential Reduction was between 0.5-3 inches.

How do I improve and maintain the VelaShape™ results?

Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

Is treatment safe?

FDA found and cleared the device as safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short or long-term health effects.

Does this treatment suit me?

The majority of the population is suitable for receiving the VelaShape™ treatment. You should consult with your physician prior to receiving treatments. For treatment contra-indications, please refer to your local Syneron representative.

What is the feeling during treatment?

Most patients claim that the treatment is pleasant, followed by a deep heating sensation beneath their skin.

Does the treatment hurt?

Most patients find VelaShape™ treatments comfortable - like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear red than usual for several hours.

How will I feel after treatment?

Post treatment skin on treated area could feel tighter. It is normal to have an inner heated sensation for up to a few hours post treatment. In some cases, mild redness can be observed.

What are the VelaShape™ advantages compared to other methods?

Our advantage is our technology. Today, there are no other methods available that include a combination of Bi-Polar RF, Infrared Light, Vacuum and Mechanical Massage like VelaShape™, and no other method can guarantee the clinically proven results, efficacy and safety in 4 treatments as the VelaShape™. VelaShape™ is the only non-surgical medical device cleared by the FDA for circumferential reduction.
