Q: How is VelaShape different from Liposuction?
A: Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which fat gets removed from the body using a hollow instrument and a high pressure vacuum that sucks out the fat from desired body parts. Since Lipsuction is a surgery there is a 6 week period of recovery. On the other hand, VelaShape is a non-invasive procedure designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite, stubborn fat, loose sagging skin and water retention. Keep in mind the most important difference aside from physical surgery is VelaShape targets cellulite and fat whereas Liposuction only targets the mid level area of fat.
Q: How many treatments do I need to see results?
A: Ideally, VelaShape treatments start twice a week. It may take up to 10 treatments to see any noticeable results.
Q: Will I experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure?
A: The intensity of the machine used for a VelaShape is usually adjusted to the comfort and pain level of the user. The sensation caused the machine is very pleasant often ending with users falling asleep during their treatment.
