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.

Velashape - my Experience (Age 30, 10% Body Fat, No Kids)

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

Velashape on Abs, Lovehandles

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.

Baby Pooch and Love Handles - Velashape Education

Vela Fantastic!!

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

I had read that this VelaShape decreases cellulite. - Don't Waste Your Money - Redondo Beach, CA

I had read that this VelaShape decreases cellulite and circumference due to skin tightening. I thought I would try it first on a small area to see if it actually worked.

Would Not Recommend the Velasmooth or Velashape to Anyone

 I received a discount and paid $1,800 for a 4-session treatment. The first treatment was very painful and I bruised so badly for a week or so. After my 4th treatment, I still did not see any results. Then I had a free treatment because the aesthetician had to train a new person. Then... READ MORE
