I've got one of these coupons for a series of treatments and went for it. I just heard good things about Velashape and decided to do it as I was heading to a vacation in Brazil few months later. Besides the fact that was very painful ( even tho I did use a topic numbing cream), gives you lots of... READ MORE

I live in DC and found a provider of Velashape at a great cost (a package of 5 cost me $750 vs. the usual $300 per session). I had Velashape in the past (but only did 3 sessions) since it was a Groupon deal and I lived in Raleigh. I didn't see much of a difference the 1st 3 times, but now I am... READ MORE

I bought a 6 session Velashape through Groupon with Cosmetic Laser Center of Beverly Hills. From what I've been reading, a session is supposed to be 45 min to an hour? Mine was only 10-15 minutes and was barely hot. It was like warm bath temp and felt like a sucker fish on my belly. I didn't see... READ MORE

I purchased 6 sessions to help fight the cellulite that I had on my tights for years. After 4 sessions I can see great improvement, I had visible "bumps" and they are almost completely gone, in the past i tried messages and all kind of creams but they never worked. I am 5.5, 125 lbs, eat... READ MORE

I've had two sessions and I can already see the difference. I was even told my arms look smaller and they don't even know I did the velashape . I have a few more sessions and now really believe it will make a huge difference in the appearance of my arms. Less fat bumps and gross cellulite. M... READ MORE

So, i just came back from what was supposed to be my first Velashape session but it hurt so much we had to stop almost immediately. The girl seemed to expect me to have unbearable pain and was repeatedly saying we could stop at anytime and I could get a facial instead. She indicated that many... READ MORE

I purchased a package of 5 Velashape Sessions from Body Bar Laser Clinic for the front and sides of my abdomen and spent $1100.00. I started noticing results 1 week after my 2nd treatment (I was going every Monday for this treatment). For the most part the treatment was painless, however once... READ MORE

A coworker told me of the great results she had with Velashape after getting liposuction so I tried it. I had 12 treatments. It was painless and felt like a suction/massage. At first the back of my legs looked smoother but the results faded very quickly and the cellulite came back. There are... READ MORE

After one treatment of the velashape my husband asked me if had started working out because my butt looked "tighter" yay! I can definitely tell a difference in my skin texture and my jeans felt like they fit better. I have recently had a baby and I cant wait to do the velashape on my belly to... READ MORE

I was so hopeful with this treatment,however I was very disappointed. Paid for 8 sessions, driving over 2 hours round trip every week.No results. 4 free sessions, because there was no change. That didn't help either. I strongly suspect it may have something to do with the technicians... READ MORE

Had 5 treatments altogether. Signed up for 4 but because the results were so poor, they threw in 1 for free. I think that if I had 6 treatments, I would have seen a decent improvement. I have been exercising my whole life and my thighs have cellulite on front and saddlebags. I am not comfortable... READ MORE

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... READ MORE

I had what the technician called level one and level two cellulite meaning level one could be seen with pressure and level two could be seen visibly with the eye althought it was not severe. I had six treatments, each one week apart from a skilled technician. Part of the key to success in... READ MORE

I bought a special on Groupon for a total of 8 Velashape treatments on my saddlebags and 6 treatments on the inner-knee area, spaced one week apart. In addition to not seeing any results, the owner of the facility didn't even seem to know where the saddlebag area was, and started giving me a... READ MORE

This is a complete waste of money , after 3 treatments, the provider had to take a trip to Italy and was gone for a week. She resumed treatment of 3 more. Nothing happened, recommended consultation for lipo for an additnal $9000.00' I didn't go for it. Advice: don't waste your money on Veashape. READ MORE

My practice gave it to me as part of my total package included with my liposuction. I chose to use it on my thighs since my abs will be sore for quite some time. First of all, it's very uncomfortable. The device heats the skin (which is suppose to do) and uses rather firm suction to melt... READ MORE

I bought 12 sessions because I am going to Brazil next month and I wanted to smooth out my legs. I am also doing Mesotherapy with it and I had Lipo 6 years ago which not only left lumps everywhere but scar tissue too. After 4 treatments and 1 Meso my husband was totally shocked :) he said there... READ MORE

The skin on my thighs is tighter after 5 sessions, which may be worth the money considering I got a great deal on groupon for 9 sessions at $199, but the bruising I get is terrible. I will post back after 9 sessions-but right now, I would trade the benefits for being able to wear shorts or... READ MORE

I'm 25 years old and have pretty bad cellulite on my buttocks and thighs. I exercise and eat right but have poor genetics. It's embarrassing to be so young and have such a terrible condition. I've seen 60 year old women who have better skin than me. I went to get velashape for 6 treatments. The... READ MORE

I had original purchased 4 Velashape treatments through a special but after having a consultation done ended up getting the Smart Lipo first on my outer and inner thighs (see my review). I waited almost 5 months because of healing issues to get the Velashape done and feel it was a positive... READ MORE
