I had traditional lipo in 2006. I had gained some fat back under the bra line and aross my low back. I was one of those starry eyed people excited about the promise of non-invasive and "affordable" cellulite/fat reduction. Of course, they just happen to have the buy one get one free promo (that ended the next day) so I was pressured to sign up ASAP. I read the reviews on this site AFTER I plunked down 2k cash and it was too late to back out.
The technician was very nice and she knew what she was doing. I had good heat and she spent a great deal of time with me... but it had ZERO results after 10 treatments. Forget about asking for a refund, it's not going to happen.

Secondly, Velashape may work for cellulite and small regions of fat - not for what I was dealing with. I will call it "Post Lipo Fat Shifting" in that I gained a large layer of fat from previous lipo in an adjacent area in 2006. I was trying to avoid the costs and risks of surgery, more scars, but in the end that was what I ended up doing and I am happy now. My body looks normal again.
As far as those thinking I am a lazy fat slob looking for a quick fix that needs to hit the gym for 2 hours a day - perhaps several hours every day at the gym would have yielded the same result over time, but considering I work outside of the home 10+ hours a day, it was not practical for me.
Instead I chose liposuction surgery and can now maintain the shape by biking and kayaking or whatever else I am in the mood for.
If you are considering Velashape, please be sure it's done by a qualified technician and for the right reasons. If you need to lose fat, this will not work for you.
They were very friendly and accomodating and talk a good talk, but Velashape treatments just dont work. Save your money - if you really want fat reduction get lipo or vaser lipo. It costs more, but at least it works and is permanent. Just dont gain the weight back...
