More than 80% of women over the age of 20, regardless of their shape and size, are affected by cellulite. Now, there is an effective, non-invasive treatment option for minimizing the cottage cheese appearance and dimpling characteristic of cellulite. Velashape II is an innovative treatment that uses a combination of technologies to smooth away cellulite for a smoother, younger appearance. Velashape II is the first and only FDA-cleared non-invasive medical solution for circumferential reduction.Velashape II features a revolutionary combination of bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) energy, infrared light energies, negative pressure and massage to gently eliminate signs of cellulite. The procedure delivers heat to the area, shrinking the fat cells below the skin’s surface. Gentle rolling action massages and manipulates the skin, while maximizing efficient energy delivery to the area.

Clinically proven results are visible in as few as 4 treatments. The safety and effectiveness of the technology of the VelaShape II system has been demonstrated in both multi-center clinical trials and in over 3 million independent treatments performed on patients around the world.

How does it work?
Velashape II utilizes a handheld device to deliver energy and massage to the treatment area. Most patients liken treatment to an intense, deep-heated tissue massage. In clinical studies, 100% of patients saw positive results from a Velashape II treatment and 85% saw a one-inch loss in circumference after the procedure.
What about results?
Results from a Velashape II treatment appear right away and continue to improve in the weeks following treatment. Most patients will require a series of treatments to achieve desired results. The staff at Leber Skin and Laser Center will discuss the number of treatments you might need at your first appointment. Once desired results are obtained, touch-up treatments may be needed periodically to maintain that appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the VelaShape and the new VelaShape II
VelaShape II offers increased power for shorter treatment sessions, reduced number of sessions, and an advanced Clever(TM) terminal, a diagnostic digital user interface to improve both consistency in treatment results and patient comfort.
How does VelaShape work?
VelaShape uses combined energies know as elos to precisely target and heat fatty tissues within the treatment area. In addition, the vacuum and tissue manipulation evens out the skin to reveal a smoother, tighter figure.
On what body areas can I be treated for circumference reduction?
With VelaShape, you can be treated on body areas such as the thighs and buttocks. The two applicators (VSmooth & VContour) on the VelaShape device are designed for large and small body areas; therefore, treatment is safe and effective.
How quickly will I notice a change with VelaShape?
Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment – with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, firmer and tighter. Results in circumference and cellulite reduction will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session.
How many inches can I reduce from my circumference?
In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of 1 inch post treatment. In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5-3 inches.
Does this treatment suit me?
The majority of the population is suitable for receiving the VelaShape treatment. You should consult with your physician prior to receiving treatments. For treatment contra-indications, please refer to your local Syneron representative.
Are VelaShape treatments safe?
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short or long-term health effects.
Does the VelaShape treatment hurt?

What are the VelaShape advantages compared to other methods?
Our advantage is our technology. Today, there are no other methods available that include a combination of Bi-Polar RF, infrared light, vacuum and mechanical massage like VelaShape, and no other method can guarantee the clinically proven results, efficacy and safety in 4 treatments as the VelaShape.
