Don't Do It!!!!! Velashape Does NOT Work! - Kissimmee, FL

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

I noticed a change just after one treatment- Virginia Beach, VA

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

Worth It for Sure - Oakland, CA

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

Velashape is a Waste of Everything

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

Velashape _ Not Sure About It? - New Hyde Park, NY

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

Velashape Doesnt Work - Orlando, FL

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

Bruising Seems Contradictive to Safe and Healthy - Boise, ID

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

Love Love Love my Results from Velashape - Orlando, FL

I was a skeptic of Velashape but once I understood how it works and committed to the 6 sessions, the backs of my thighs look amazing. After my first session, i did get a touch of bruising which my tech told me about. I took arnicka which helped the bruising go away faster. After each... READ MORE

Worth It. - Dallas, TX

I am the biggest skeptic, but I used a Groupon and took a gamble after researching and reading about it on Dr. Oz's website. I bought 6 treatments for a total of $375 and went in weekly. I just finished my 5th and I really can see a difference. I had it done on the back of my thighs which I... READ MORE

Vela is a Waste of $$$ - Barrie, ON

I actually only paid around $150 by purchasing a Groupon 86% off deal to try 6 Vela treatments valued at $1500 dollars. First the spa links to a "Doctors" video that says that Vela is the non-surgical lipo-suction but the machine on the video is NOTHING at all like the toy-looking hand... READ MORE

Starting Velashape - Miami, FL

I recently found a coupon like a "groupon" for 4 Velashape treatments for the price of $99. I have been looking into Velashape for a very long time, but always found to be too expensive. The last time I got quoted, I was told that it would be around $150 per session and I would need a... READ MORE
