I regularly do hot yoga and sweat out tons doing cardio at the gym. Will this effect my results? None of the technitions have mentioned this or anything about drinking water which I do anyway since I sweat so much. What advise would you recommend? Thanks!

Any activity or activities that increase your basal metabolic rate (BMR) will enhance the clearance of metabolite clearance via your lymphatic system, a system that is utilized to clear fatty products after RF injury to fat cell integrity via membrane dissolution. Hydration is also an important thing to do with your exercise and yoga routine. 

Exercise after Vela is fine

We encourage our patients to exercise and drink plenty of water while undergoing Vela treatments. There are no side effects to this, and in fact, maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle will only increase your probability for good results.
