Cellulite is the ultimate enemy for many people, particularly women. Although practically harmless, it can still be a huge source of discomfort and self-consciousness. If you’re one of those people, you’re probably on the hunt for effective ways to treat cellulite and VelaShape III might just be exactly what you are looking for.
Velashape III cellulite reduction is a treatment that is designed to improve the appearance of cellulite, the dimpling or uneven texture on the surface of the skin which appears usually on the thighs, abdomen, hips, and buttocks. While cellulite can affect anyone, it’s more common among women than men. Cellulite supposedly forms when fat cells accumulate and begin to push against the connective tissue which is located just beneath the skin.
A Velashape III cellulite is a non-invasive treatment that can help you to regain your confidence, tighten your skin, and get rid of any unwanted fat in those stubborn areas.
VelaShape is essentially a non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring treatment that relies on a combination of infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy, massage, and suction to improve the appearance of cellulite. It’s often used on the thighs, stomach, buttocks, upper arms, and other areas of the body where cellulite tends to take form. It may also help tighten saggy skin and eliminate excess fat, however, it is important to note that this treatment is not a weight loss solution.
You’ll be glad to know that in the United States, the FDA has approved the VelaShape III System for temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite, as well as temporarily reducing thigh and abdominal circumference. This assures many of our patients that the treatment is safe, effective, and worth paying for. Aside from these, it boasts several other advantages.
Some of the benefits of VelaShape III include:
There are some considerations to keep in mind before booking a treatment, such as:
You may be wondering what happens during VelaShape treatment. It’s fairly simple. In fact, you don’t even need to do any preparations beforehand but if you’re taking blood-thinning medications, we recommend that you stop taking them for at least a week before the procedure to minimize any risks of bruising. For best results, staying well-hydrated is critical.
During the session, the doctor will place a handheld device against your skin and massage it across the targeted areas to deliver infrared and RF energy in the form of heat. The infrared and RF energy helps to tighten the skin and reduce fat cells while the gentle massage loosens and relaxes the tough fibrous bands beneath the skin to remove the cellulite. The heat from the treatment can also promote elastin and collagen production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin which can make it smooth to the touch.
During the treatment, you can expect some warmth, as well as gentle massaging and vacuum-like sensations although it is virtually painless. Additionally, many clients say that the experience is extremely soothing and relaxing. The procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete but once it’s over, you can resume your normal routine without any disruption. Some people have been known to report minor pain or discomfort, such as redness, sensitivity, swelling, and bruising, but these will subside shortly after the treatment.

Multiple sessions of VelaShape III will give you dramatic results. On average, most patients would need 3 to 6 treatment sessions with a week between them for optimal results. Many of our clients have seen results after the first or second session but we recommend that you have at least 4 to 10 weeks of sessions with a week between each for full treatment to see the best of your results.
How Long Does VelaShape Results Last?
The results you’ll get from VelaShape III are not permanent and we recommend maintenance treatments every 6 months to preserve your results.
With proper care and healthy lifestyle habits, you may be able to extend the results even further. In contrast, some individuals may require a follow-up appointment much sooner than usual but much like any procedure, this will differ between each person.
The main difference between VelaShape and other cellulite treatments is that it uses multiple modalities to improve the appearance of dimpled skin or cellulite. Below is a quick comparison of VelaShape III and other popular body treatments such as lipo massage and UltraShape.
Lipomassage, also known as “Endermologie”, is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that is designed to reduce cellulite. The treatment is carried out with motorized rollers and a vacuum to deliver a deep tissue massage to the affected areas. Since VelaShape also relies on infrared and RF energy on top of the mechanical massage, it could produce tangible results in a shorter amount of time, making it the more efficient method of the two.

UltraShape is a non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment that is used to get rid of excess fats, particularly those that won’t go away even with a balanced diet and regular exercise. It is often used to treat belly fat, love handles, and arms, although it can be used on other areas of the body. Best of all, this procedure can get rid of stubborn fat cells permanently. While UltraShape may offer some skin-tightening benefits, it’s a body-contouring and fat-reducing treatment so may not provide the same results as VelaShape for the reduction of cellulite or sagging skin.
Cellulite is the bane of many women’s existence. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to address it. VelaShape III is, without a doubt, one of the most popular and effective treatments for cellulite. As a bonus, the non-invasive, safe, and FDA-approved procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete and has no downtime, so it won’t interfere with your daily routine. Before going ahead to choose VelaShape, we recommend that you book yourself in for a consultation to see if you qualify for the treatment.
It is important to note that the results are temporary, making follow-up treatments completely necessary if you want to maintain your results. In most cases, touch-ups are completed every 6 months. We recommend that you do not rely on VelaShape alone to prevent cellulite from forming in your abdomen, thighs, and other areas, but to ensure you are following the right diet and exercise, along with other healthier lifestyle changes.
