Velashape arm treatments


I have used the Velahape for years to treat arms; however, I would say the results have just been decent. I recently acquired a Venus Freeze machine and those results have been tremendously more successful and my patients who are undergoing arm treatments are happier with this treatment than they were with the Velashape. I'd try to find someone in your area with a Venus Freeze.

Vela Shape

Vela Shape can reduce the circumference of the arms.  In addition, Vela can improve the skin quality resulting in firmer, tighter skin.

Velashape for upper arm fat


Thank you for your question. At my practice,  I do not use Velashape. Instead, I would suggest other treatments like CoolSculpting or Vaser Hi Def, which have shown very positive results for reducing fat.

Velashape is helpful for temporary tightening of loose skin


You can expect temporary improvement in skin texture and turgor with modest circumferential reduction after 8-12 treatments. Results will require repeat treatments for maintenance.
