How VelaShape™ Works

VelaShape™ is all about revolutionary elos™ technology combined with vacuum and mechanical massage. Elos harnesses bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy power at the same time. As the first and only technology of its kind, it features the ability to precisely heat up dermal and hypodermal tissues safely, without posing a risk to the epidermis. Increased comfort is achieved by a contact cooling device. Elos was developed by Intense Pulse Light inventor/patent-holder, Dr. Shimon Eckhouse and the master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel. Heat energy is then facilitated by vacuum and mechanical massage, which smoothes the skin in the target area and ensures efficient delivery.What happens with treatment is that the metabolism of stored energy increases, lymphatic drainage improves and fat cells and fat chambers reduce or shrinks size.

VelaShape Frequently Asked Questions


The non-surgical body contouring treatment can treat the following areas:

  • – neck
  • – arms
  • – flanks
  • – buttocks
  • – abdomen
  • – thighs

It is designed to treat laxity, excess fat and rough and aging skin.

VelaShape™ has been extensively researched and tested to make sure that it’s safe, and that it can do what it claims to do. Research has found that as a method of toning and firming up the body, this treatment is associated with little to no negative side effects or complications. Burns are extremely rare and the worst thing you may experience is some pinkness to your skin which could last a few hours.


If you’re plagued by unwanted fat, lumpiness, saggy skin and cellulite, you may consider this option. You should be at a relatively healthy weight, since VelaShape™ is not considered a method of weight loss. The technology is designed for men and women who have specific areas of concern that can’t be corrected with a healthy lifestyle. Generally speaking, the ideal candidate is someone with a Body Mass Index of under 30.

While you may notice an improvement after your first session, usually you’ll need about three to eight to achieve good results you want. Each session lasts about an hour or so. The treatments are generally scheduled on a  weekly basis. Your results will appear gradually over the couple of months that it takes for your treatment plan to be completed, because your skin and body need time to react to the technology. Your skin will rejuvenate at the cellular level, and unwanted fat cells will need to be slowly flushed away by your body’s lymphatic system.



Woman with cellulite on upper thighs.

Yes, one of the primary concerns that VelaShape™ has been designed for is cellulite. In this respect, it is more effective than the plastic surgery treatment, liposuction. The best results appear on patients with minor to moderate cellulite. Severe cellulite may be improved, however it may take more than 3 sessions to get the results you want.

According to the Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Scale, VelaShape™ is ideal for stage 1 and stage 2 cellulite.

Stage 1 cellulite: Dimpling appears when the area is pinched.
Stage 2 cellulite: Dimpling appears when standing, but not while lying down.
Stage 3 cellulite: Dimpling appears when standing and lying down.

Cellulite is really just a build-up of fat and toxins underneath the skin. Fat cells exist in chambers, and when they grow, it causes the walls of the chambers to warp. With time, the walls harden and the fat, along with toxins, are pushed upwards. This causes the skin to get that dimpled appearance most of us find unattractive.


The basis of VelaShape™ is manual manipulation of the skin while it is exposed to a combination of infrared red (IR) and bi-polar radio frequency (RF). It does this all at one time. Manual manipulation is done by a vacuum the elevates the tissue in the targeted area. This lifts the tissues close enough so that it can be effectively exposed to the IR and RF energy source. IR energy gently heats up the area, and RF energy delivers the heat throughout the area evenly, so that burns are prevented and no damage is caused. Doing all of this triggers your body to boost collagen and elastin production while at the same time disrupts fat cells so they can be destroyed.


The treatment is so gentle that our patients describe it as being a warm deep-tissue massage. They frequently comment that it kind of feels like something they’d get from a  masseuse, but even gentler. The only thing is that you’re getting rid of fat instead of just relaxing! The warmth is very comforting and the sensation may last a little while after your session. Don’t worry about this, because it just means that your still enjoying the effects of your treatment!


The results you get will have a permanent effect on your body contour and skin quality. However, you should know that the natural effects of aging and weight gain will take their toll. It’s important that you follow a healthy lifestyle so you can help prolong your results.

You can get maintenance sessions after completing your initial treatment plan. This can be helpful in keeping you looking great!
