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 bought two separate packages for Velashape of 20 treatments each. I used it mainly on mi tighs, hips, and buttocks. I have cellulite and used it as well because I was told it will help to tighten loose skin. Honestly, I did not see a major difference on my cellulite or my skin elasticity after... READ MORE

After my gastric bypass 2 years ago and then Smartlipo done 4 months ago, I feel that the key to the success of the Smartlipo has been the Velashape Treatments. Velashape is a 3 point treatment - mechanical massage, heat and suction. It has smoothed out my abs and flanks where I had the... READ MORE

Tried the Velashape for my stomach and went through 6 treatments. Didn't work. Very painful--and when she tried the thighs OMG! It felt like someone pinching you really hard. READ MORE

I suffer from cellulite and read that VelaShape was the first and only FDA-cleared medical device for body re-shaping. Since it's non-invasive, I thought I'd try it. It sounded too good to be true and it was. The idea that VelaShape feels like a hot stone massage is ridiculous. It... READ MORE

At a height of 5.5 and with a weigh of 119 lbs I don't like the cellulite on my buttocks, hips and the backside of my thighs. A year ago I already tried endermology. Although I could "feel" a difference after 15 treatments (the dimples under the skin felt flatter) I couldn't... READ MORE

I had talked with staff over a year before finally doing the velashape. I had what they called stage 2 of cellulite on thighs and lower bottom. Stage 2 meaning you could see it when I was standing but laying down you couldn't. I was assured over and over through out a year that this would... READ MORE

I had 10-12 body contour sessions, and my before and after pictures look the same. The representative who performed the procedures agreed with me, the only difference that was noticed was smoothing but she couldn't confirm that that was a result of the procedures of the cellulite cream I...

I am on my second cycle of VelaShape. I had my first cycle a year ago. It works well for me. My first cycle was hips/thighs/abdomen. My current cycle is abdomen/arms. During both cycles I experienced a reduction in the circumference of the treated part. In fact, after my first cycle... READ MORE

I'm into my 3rd vellashape treatment and boy does it hurt. It feels like the machine is trying to suck the top layer of my skin off while burning it. I'm getting vella on my tummy and have not seen results as yet. I'm signed up for 10-12 treatments.....I hope it get... READ MORE

I had 12 Velashape treatments and although it took a while my stomach is now half the size that it used to be! Here are a few tips to ensure your success: -Have the technician use the larger rolling head as opposed to the smaller pumping head, this is when I really started seeing results... READ MORE

I loved my technician (even though I was burned a couple of times)but the treatment didn't work. After having three children the skin around my tummy has gotten very loose. I'm 5'4 and weigh 123 lbs. I exercise at least three times a week including boxing, strength training,... READ MORE

I just began Velashape treatments. My first visit was 5 days ago. (I am hopeful but realistic!) No pain- the heat and rollers actually felt great on my sore legs from all the cardio I do! I am doing an initial round of 6 treatments, one per week, hour each time, with every 2-3 months of 1... READ MORE

I had velashape done on my stomach area and love handles. I purchased a package of 6 and got 2 free. I ended up having 8 treatments. At first, I saw my waistline getting smaller. However, at times, I really didnt see much results. I worked out about 5 times a week on top of the vela. My... READ MORE

I am fit and lean, run and workout 6 days a week but since puberty have had some deep dimpling on my outer, upper thighs no matter how hard or much I worked out. I was skeptical about Velashape, Velasmooth, Smoothshapes (I think they are all about the same) but I am definitely seeing results... READ MORE

I have a problem with cellulite on my thighs. I had my velashape treatment for an hour every week and experienced absolutely no results! I also got 2 different second degree burns from the procedure-that left scars.Very disappointed. Now I am looking for a good doctor in Wichita Kansas to do... READ MORE

I have just found out I am pregnant after 3 velashape treatments. I am only a couple of weeks gone. Please tell me if I would have done any damage to the baby i am very concerned. READ MORE

I had a previous experience with Velashape at a different place and had no results. I really thought it was a waste of money. I have been considering Smartlipo, but am not mentally ready for that. My baby pooch and love handles really weren't that big and I couldn't see going as far as... READ MORE

Had Smart Lipo carried out on my stomach, hips and love handles. Worked great but had a couple of small lumps on my stomach. My surgeon offered 6 Velashape treatments on the areas I had Smart Lipo carried out on for free.After the first treatment I decided to have Velashape treatments on my legs... READ MORE

Velashapewas the BIGGEST WASTE of money! I completely regret the decision to purchase this treatment. They claimed that I would have cellulite and circumference reduction of my thighs.The cellulite was less noticeable right after the treatment but was back the very next day. There was NO...

I had my first velashape appointment on Saturday. I'm surprised at the reviews that say it hurt ... it didn't hurt at all! The machine itself felt like a massage on my legs. It got hot at times, but the girl doing it just moved it to the next area when i told her it was hot ... no big deal. ... READ MORE
