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 ›

I have two children and the pregancies left me with a loose tummy and cellulite on my thighs. My tummy is tighter and thighs are much smoother after only one session and I have five to go. I am so excited to see my final result. It was not painful it just felt like it would warm up the skin and... READ MORE

I tried Velashape in the quest to reduce my cellulite, which has haunted me since I was 13. Unfortunately, Velashape did nothing more but waste an hour it of my life. I saw no difference of an kind. When something sounds to good to be tru, it usually is :( I wish I had not spent the money on... READ MORE

I am getting ready for a photo shoot. I have been dieting and exercising 5-7 days a week. I am in shape but my abs need some help I decided to do velashape to tighten my abs. I have done my 5th session- no improvement plus I got burned- one inch burn mark. the place has been doing... READ MORE

Velashape is a colossal waste of money. I wish I had listened to the reviews on this website! I would say I potentially saw a 10% improvement in cellulite on the front and back of my thighs, which is a pitiful return for $1400. I had 7 treatments over the course of 8 weeks. I followed... READ MORE

So I bought a groupon for 6 sessions and figured for the price, why not? I did my outer thighs/saddle bag area. I am in shape and exercise but had a couple large dimples in that area with some fat deposits that I could not get rid of. Seriously, I noticed a difference after the first session.... READ MORE

I bought a Groupon for $200 for 9 sessions, the spa wasn't all that fancy (and location was terrible) but I decided since it wasn't anything invasive I would give it a shot. My thinking was that I always had the option to leave during the appointment at any point, and at that price, I wouldn't... READ MORE

I finished my 7th session last week and having my 8th tomorrow. I am getting Vela on thighs and butt area. I was told since I have a lot of cellulite (almost stage 3 - that it may take 6- 8 sessions to see a difference). I am not expecting miracles but I was definitely expecting to see a... READ MORE

First off, I have done 2 different rounds of Vela. I did it back in 2008/2009 when it first came out and saw good results but then went back to my old habits and stopped going. I still had a number of sessions and started using them again this past Feb. I started with the back of my thighs... READ MORE

I did a Groupon deal for 3 sessions of Velashape for my problem area: stomach but saw no difference what so ever. It was just a wast of money and good thing it was through groupon and if i had paid full price i would have been mad! However it was relaxing and warm... it made me giggle... READ MORE

I have had nearly 18 treatments on my upper under arm area as well as my love handle and tummy. I'm in good shape and not overweight but have mild bat wings on upper arms and small fat deposits in the other areas that sometimes bulge a bit when I gain a few pounds. I have had some tightening...

At first I was obviously a bit skeptical. I bought a package of 3 velashape treatments on groupon for $99!!!! So i figured I would give it a shot because I wanted to tighten up and loose a couple inches on my lower abdomen. I must first mention I had lipo and a brazilian butt lift a year ago,... READ MORE

I thought I was getting a terrific deal - $1200 for 4 treatments that would rid me of the ugly cellulite on the front and back of my thighs. Boy was I wrong! First of all it gets HOT and I mean to the point of tears! I thought I would have burns all over but I didn't - but it even hurt for a... READ MORE

My first appointment for Velashape is on 3/19/12. I have read many discouraging reviews but I have hope. I signed up for 6 weekly sessions for the full thigh area. I don't have a problem with cellulite at all, I'm looking for circumference reduction. I'm 5'2 133 pounds, the... READ MORE

I hadnydirstsession today and I can say that it can be uncomfortable and I have avein that popped out on the back of my hip today after the treatment..... Is this suppose to do that?! That was never given to me as a risk and if it were I never would have done it. I'm insecure about it as it... READ MORE

That first treatment was so painful. I cant believe that they said it was virtually painless. Thats a lie for sure. I have only had one treatment so far so I cant really rate it yet. I'm so not lookin forward to my next treatment, but I will post an update. I woke up this morning and... READ MORE

I am very happy with my results. It was a little uncomfortable at first but I got used to it and actually grew to kind of like it. I had 5 treatments and I am definitely a smaller waist size and everything looks tighter and smoother. I am 41 and had 2 kids and the low abdomen was a problem area... READ MORE

I went weekly for velashape I spent so much money on treatments and new packages and it's a waste and I fought for my money back it's a complete joke. Now I have to spend 3700 on cellulaze which actually works and it gets right into the problem and cuts the bands pulling down on the skin... READ MORE

I was excited to get the Velashape package with a groupon at a significant savings. I am not sure if this is a good thing. I had a post pregancy pouch that I just couldn't get rid of with proper diet and exercise. I did my first treatment and it was very uncomfortable but tolerable. Prior to... READ MORE

I had lipo on my stomach in June 2010. Because the lipo left me with lumps and what looks like cellulite above my belly button, I decided to try velashape. I did about 10 sessions, I lost count! It might have smoothed it out just a bit. But maybe time also played a factor. It doesnt work. I read... READ MORE

I won my session so I guess I cannot complain about the ROI, but I am very skeptical about the bruising. The sides of my thighs looked like I had been in a car accident. Yes the tech did tell me there would be some bruising--I would call this more than "some". During the procedure, I... READ MORE
