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.

Love It!! - Miami, FL

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

Working! - New York, NY

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

Going on my 8th Session This Week and So Far Nothing!

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

Awesome Results! - Royal Oak, MI

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

No Result - Los Angeles, CA

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

Good Results So Far - New York

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...

So Far So Good, Got a Great Deal on Groupon.. - New York, NY

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

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

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 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
