With Velashape III, we encourage our patients to exercise immediately after the treatments. This allows for mobilization of lymphatic swelling. There is no scientific reason for the recommendations not to exercise.

There is no downtime when undergoing VelaShape.  You can exercise immediately following the treatments.   It is recommended to discuss specific regimens with your physician.

As a non-invasive procedure that does not require general or local anesthesia, injections or cutting, Velashape is an extremely low-risk treatment, which requires no downtime or recovery period. It is normal for for the treatment area to appear red for several hours after the treatment session. Patients with skin that is more fragile or sensitive than average may experience some bruising after treatment, particularly on the buttocks or thighs. Patients can return to work immediately after a treatment session and can resume normal daily activities right away. However, I would recommend holding off on returning to the gym until the next day.
