What is Velashape III

We all look forward to summer to show some skin, as the rest of the months the cold weather is not a good ally for it. However, you may have some areas of unwanted fat or cellulite that just won’t seem to go away and prevent you from wearing shorts and skirts.

Fortunately, there are great non-surgical solutions available for these tricky problems that can be solved without help. One of the most effective is VelaShape III, an increasingly popular treatment to help treat fat and cellulite.

But what is VelaShape III? It is a completely non-invasive body contouring procedure. It works to effectively reduce fat and cellulite in areas that are often difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone. 

Velashape III treatment typically lasts one hour, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately, with no downtime or pain. This makes it a great alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery.

The Velashape III system uses a combination of 4 modalities:

All about Velashape III

We have already mentioned that Velashape III is a non-invasive body contouring treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is also used to achieve a reduction in the circumference of the thighs and abdomen.

The most commonly treated areas are the thighs, buttocks, upper arms and stomach. It can also reduce excess fat and slightly sagging skin under the chin. 

Unlike most anti-cellulite treatments that use a single modality to treat the appearance of cellulite skin, Velashape III uses a combination of four modalities: infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency, massage and gentle suction.

The suction brings the skin closer to the energy source inside the handheld device and, together with the massage, helps to relax and tighten the stiff fibrous bands beneath the skin. These are what cause the orange peel texture known as cellulite, so they need to be treated to get rid of this problem.

Infrared and radiofrequency shocks, on the other hand, heat the skin. This tightens the tissue, causing the fat cells to shrink and, in some cases, die.

Finally, the heat reduces skin laxity by tightening the underlying dermal collagen fibres; and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which increases skin firmness and elasticity over time.

What is the purpose of the Velashape III treatment?

Some of the most popular body contouring surgical procedures, such as liposuction, can be excellent options for the right candidates. However, not everyone needs such an invasive or expensive procedure to achieve their aesthetic goals. 

The VelaShape III can be an effective solution for non-surgical body contouring; and it is the latest advancement in the VelaShape series. This treatment offers many benefits, including the following:

Frequently asked questions about Velashape III

After a session for the treatment of localised fat with VELASHAPE III the return to normal life is immediate. It is important to avoid cooling the area during the hours following a session and to follow simple nutritional and hydration guidelines.

Some bruising may appear, which is quickly reabsorbed, so it is recommended to avoid exposure to the sun and/or UV rays for the following 48 hours.

Results after treatment with Velashape III are usually visible from the first few sessions, but for longer-term results, 4 to 6 treatments per area are recommended at a rate of one session every 2 weeks or more.

Absolute contraindications for the treatment of localised fat with Velashape III include:

  • Pacemaker or internal defibrillator or any other electrical implant in the body, permanent implant in the treated area such as metal plates and screws, or an injected chemical substance.
  • History of skin cancer, or any other type of cancer, or malignant moles.
  • Cardiac disorders.
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • Weakened immune system due to diseases such as HIV, or use of immunosuppressive drugs.
  • Patients with a history of heat-stimulated diseases, such as recurrent herpes in the treatment area, may be treated only after prophylactic treatment.
  • Endocrine disorders, such as insulin-dependent diabetes.
  • Any active condition in the treatment area, such as ulcers, psoriasis, eczema, and rash.
  • History of skin disorders, keloids, abnormal scarring, as well as very dry and fragile skin.
  • History of coagulopathy or use of anticoagulants.
  • Use of isotretinoin (Accutane®) within six months prior to treatment.
  • Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. those containing ibuprofen as an active ingredient) one week before and after each treatment.

The treatment of localised fat is usually a protocol that combines different therapeutic techniques. At Clinica Rigo we also work in synergy with integrative nutrition to achieve the best results.

Apart from this, other treatments such as carboxytherapy, mesotherapy or lymphatic drainage can also be used.

You will begin to notice a progressive improvement in the treated area immediately, as the surface of your skin begins to feel smoother and firmer. Over time you will also notice a smaller circumference throughout the treated area, as well as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite, with the best results being seen after approximately 10 weeks.

For best long-term results, 4 to 6 treatments per area are recommended at a rate of one session every 2 weeks or more.

This body contouring reduction treatment is ideal for all those who want a change in their lives. Those who are close to their body goals and need a final push are considered ideal candidates for this treatment. 

In this sense, it is ideal for those looking to target areas that are difficult to change with diet and exercise.

The cost will depend on the number of sessions carried out, the size and number of areas to be treated, all according to the needs of each patient.
