Velashape Cellulite Treatment

How effective is Velashape in removing cellulite? What do you think of Velashape? I am seeing lots of negative results. Does it do what it says or is it a waste of time and money to remove cellulite?

Vela shape is one of the few FDA approved treatments to improve the appearance of cellulite. It all depends on the amount of cellulite if you have large amounts and are overweight it may not be the best treatment for you.

Velashape Effectiveness

+1

Velashape is a non-invasive laser procedure that uses Radiofrequency and Infrared Light Energy to shrink fat cells and tighten the skin. It is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas within 4 treatments. Velashape combines vacuum and tissue manipulation to modify deeper fat layers and associated connective tissues to reveal a smoother and tighter figure. Most commonly used on the buttocks, thighs, arms, and abdomen, clinical trials illustrate circumferential reduction in these areas ranging between 0.5 to 3 inches. Patients commonly see improvement after their first treatment, with skin surface of treated areas feeling smoother, firmer, and tighter, and cellulite reduction most apparent 6 to 8 weeks later. It is recommended for best results that periodic maintenance treatments be continued, with skin quality changes and circumferential reduction lasting longer when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
