Velashape can be used on thighs, buttocks, arms, and stomach. The face cannot be treated with Velashape, but you can do Thermage for facial skin tightening. Velashape has two head pieces to treat smaller or larger areas. The treatment can be done prior a surgical procedure to help loosen the fat and prevent bruising. Velashape can also be done a few weeks after a tummy tuck or liposuction to help smooth out the skin and speed up the recovery process.
