VelaShape III is a non-invasive body shaping treatment used to reduce cellulite, as well as slim the area around the stomach, hips, and thighs. The machine combines four different technologies — infrared, bi-polar radio frequency, pulsed vacuum, and massage rollers — to improve skin texture and reduce overall volume of the treated area. You have the option to undergo one longer treatment session or three shorter ones. LEARN MORE ›

Tried Velashape instead of lipo. Want to rid saddlebags and cellulite. I tried a groupin because normally each location is $175! I had back of legs and outer thigh which they said 3 locations! So can be $$$. But after one treatment looks smoother and smaller. Had to buy $40 more for compression... READ MORE

So sometimes I think that maybe its not that bad and then I take a good look at my body. Its bad. I've completely messed it up. My skin quality is absolutely horrific. In my late teens when I should have been svelte and beautiful, I was 300lbs. Determined to lose the weight. I did. I lost 130... READ MORE

I have this piece of fat on the side of my right thigh that is noticeable even through pants. I run I work out, the dang ball won't go away. As I was looking into SmartLipo, Velashape was suggested for both saddlebags. I've had three sessions so far and the ball has shrunk one inch. I'm still... READ MORE

Hi, I had one 1/2 hr session on my belly for the first time last Saturday. My daughter 27, also had a session on the same area.People say it's painful, but that was not my experience. It was a bit uncomfortable but nothing worth writing home about. Later that night I leaned on my belly and it... READ MORE

I had a total of 6 sessions in March/April 2012 and had my upper arms, inside of my thighs and back of my thighs done. I lost a total of 3" off each arm and 4" off each thigh. Everyone that says the procedure is unbearable, I really believe it depends on the doctor doing the procedure. Mine had... READ MORE

As a 38 year old who exercises regularly and eats very healthy I was disappointed when I was about to retire my bikini because the back of my legs and side of my thighs had cellulite. I was going on a family vacation and was feeling very uncomfortable in a bikini. After researching vela shape 3,... READ MORE

Had a pooch on my belly since i could remember. now that i'm 50 I decided to check into options but i'm not a fan of surgery. Then, I came across Phyzique that had the new velashape 3. My friend owns a med spa and I got a treatment but their device was an older version. this new version seems... READ MORE

Today I had the pleasure of my first consultation at Phyzique. As soon as I arrived at the nicely decorated office I was greeted by the warm and friendly staff. I met with Mike who explained the procedure and process at length. I was very comfortable with the explanation and had my first... READ MORE

So I shelled out 450.00 to start treatment on the dreaded cellulite on the back of my legs(250.00) & added in the flanks(200.00). She was a very lovely person and was very pleasant through the whole procedure. She said her clients absolutely love this treatment so I'm hoping for decent results.... READ MORE

I had some cellulite on the side of my tights and I purchased a Groupon Package at the Brand Surgical Cosmetic Center. It didn't hurt at all, sometimes it burned a bit and the gal will turn down the heat. I'm in my third treatment and I have seen NO improvement whatsoever. My skin feels softer... READ MORE

VelaShape DOES work, but it works better on some than others. It should also be known that VelaShape is on it's third machine, currently the VelaShape III. The earlier machines are probably still in use in some locations, however they do not have the same features, nor do they give the same... READ MORE

This is my first review on here, but I want to thank everyone who takes time to make honest reviews of their experiences with these many different products/procedures. My doctor got this machine right as I was about to have lipo done on my thighs. I'm pretty lean, and only had a couple places... READ MORE

I am not a big person at 5'5" and 115 lbs. I am open to laser and to date have been very happy with my ematrix on my face and neck. So, figured let's try the thighs with velashape.
