Velashape training

Velashape is a medical laser so any operator must operate under the license of a physician. Formal training is best done by the manufacturer of the machine - Syneron - and then they send you a certificate of completion; this training can be done in your actual office, or Syneron periodically offers training at their facility in Irvine, CA. However, in-office training by your physician may also be done, and there are online programs available through the physician portal on the Syneron website.
