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

VelaShape on Thighs Reduced Cellulite but I Didn't Lose Inches

I did notice some reduction in cellulite on my thighs. However, there was no circumference reduction, which was the main reason I decided to get this treatment.I wish I would have saved myself a few thousand dollars and spent a few hundred on a personal trainer instead. The treatment does hurt... 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. The RN holds the VelaShape machine on my double chin. It feels like a Hoover vacuum, but the RN tells me that it also has a... READ MORE

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

It Works but After 7 Sessions the Results Don't Satisfy Much

Soon my sister told me about the difference/improvement at the back of my left leg. My right leg is still same. I think person who applies it is very... READ MORE

Velashape-results Good, but Have to Work Hard Too!

Had 6 velashape treatments on abs and love handles with ALC. Ended up losing 10 lbs after 6 weeks of treatments, increased workouts, and eating well. I have noticed some areas go back to how they were, but may go back for maintenance. Worth it, but have to also be willing to eat well and work... READ MORE

Waste of a Lot of Money

Although it was not painful (almost relaxing), I did not see any results. I had 6 treatments and kept looking for visible decrease in cellulite each week. I would not do it again as it did not produce any visible results and is VERY expensive. I am very self conscious about my cellulite... READ MORE

6 Treatments, No Result.

I had tried velasmooth, and velashape last year. I had 18 velasmooth but it did not help me lose any inch at all. So my doctor was kind enough to offer me 40% off his new velashape treatment as he assured me that velashape would do miracle on me. After paying $2400, I was so dissapointed because... READ MORE
