VelaShape DOES work, but it works better on some than others. It should also be known that VelaShape is on it's third machine, currently the VelaShape III.

It was suggested that this procedure could work on thin, loose skin on upper arms. I was cautioned that it may be several months before I would see results. There were no results, whatsoever, and it IS very painful. It's probably best left to face, only, as the arm is a very large piece of skin! I would definitely try it on the face if you are just beginning to sag. READ MORE

I had 4 treatments on neck and jowl area, upper arms, and a couple of treatments on upper, front thighs. It's been... READ MORE

The next step is intense pulse light (IPL), which acts to stimulate collagen. The final step is to lay under a blue light for seventeen minutes. This phase can be a bit uncomfortable, your skin gets hot, but you are sprayed with cold water. That's it, you're... READ MORE

Why is it that women who've had a chemical peel seem to have a glow about their skin, while lasers leave the skin looking flat?
I also notice that lasers leave the skin much lighter. Is this avoidable? READ MORE
