Velashape Q & A

How does VelaShape work?

VelaShape is FDA-cleared to reduce the appearance of cellulite and help tighten your body. The treatment works by moving a handheld device over your targeted area.

This device combines infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy with mild suction to evenly heat up fat cells and their surrounding tissues. Suction is used to draw your skin closer to the energy sources and to help relax stiff, fibrous bands that lead to dimpling.

The technology behind VelaShape has even been proven to efficiently stimulate collagen and elastin production, which helps tighten and firm your skin, in a comfortable, in-office procedure. 

Which areas can be treated with VelaShape?

Amber Medical Spa provides customized VelaShape packages designed to target any problem areas you’re concerned about. You can even have multiple areas treated during a single session. Dr. González can perform VelaShape treatments on your:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks 
  • Thighs 
  • Flanks
  • Chin 

Not only does VelaShape help minimize the appearance of cellulite, but it also reduces the circumference of your abdomen or thighs. 

When do I get results with VelaShape?

VelaShape provides fast results. Dr. González finds that most men and women experience a dramatic improvement in their targeted area within just a few weeks. 

Most VelaShape treatment plans from Amber Medical Spa include at least three weekly sessions. But Dr. González may recommend additional VelaShape treatments if you have more stubborn cellulite. 

Are results with VelaShape permanent?

No, but VelaShape results are entirely long-lasting. Most men and women who complete their recommended series of VelaShape treatments at Amber Medical Spa find that they have optimal results that last for several months. 

To prevent ongoing issues with cellulite and skin laxity, Dr. González is likely going to encourage you to come in for touchup VelaShape treatments once or twice a year. She can also help you with weight management solutions to prevent weight fluctuations that may increase your risk of developing cellulite in the future. 

With VelaShape treatments from Amber Medical Spa, you can finally get rid of unsightly cellulite and enhance your physique. Find out more by booking a consultation online or over the phone.
