{ VelaShape Toronto: Cellulite and Fat Reduction Treatment }

What is VelaShape cellulite and fat reduction treatment?

VelaShape™ is a non-invasive, suction-coupled infrared and radiofrequency (RF) energy bulk heating device which is one of the original radiofrequency devices developed for skin tightening and body contouring and the non-invasive reduction of fat. Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica Toronto were at the forefront of pioneering and developing this technology and this has led to the refinement and improvements in these non-invasive radiofrequency bulk heating and fat contouring devices. The new VelaShape 3 is a top-of-the-line, bulk radiofrequency soft tissue heating system for fat reduction, cellulite improvement and skin tightening.

How does VelaShape Toronto work and how it performed?

VelaShape™ non-invasive applicator is applied to the contour area of concern. The soft tissue is treated with a high-frequency electrical current and suction-coupled infrared heat. The radiofrequency energy and infrared heat raise the temperature in the skin and the fat. The increased temperature stimulates collagen and elastin, resulting in tightening of the skin and improvement in cellulite. Furthermore, the increased heat results in a reduction of the size of the fat cells and adipocytes. It is common to see a circumferential reduction of 3-4 cm following a series of 4-6 treatments, performed once a week. Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes per zone and patients may return to normal activities immediately after each treatment.

Figure 2. The VelaShape mechanism of action is a suction coupled InfraRED energy which heats the skin to 42 degrees and is then sustained for at least 10 minutes per zone. The skin heating results in increased collagen, elastin and ground substances and skin tightening. The suction couple’s radiofrequency energy heats up the subcutaneous fat cells and adipose tissue. This heat stimulates the metabolic break down of fat and, after a series of treatments there is a noticeable fat reduction and circumferential measurement reduction of 3-4 cm, on average.

Who is a candidate for VelaShape Toronto treatment?

Non-invasive radiofrequency devices, such as the VelaShape™ and some of the newer versions of radiofrequency energy bulk heating treatment devices, such the Venus Freeze, Excelis and BodyFX™ result in the permanent reduction and death of fat cells. Good candidates for non-surgical liposuction radiofrequency treatments include those individuals that want a significant and noticeable improvement in their body contour, but want to avoid more invasive treatments such as tummy tucks, body lifts, surgical excisions or even minimally-invasive liposuction. Good candidates for the SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction fat reduction program, which combines VelaShape™-type radiofrequency devices with permanent fat reduction ultrasound devices, such as UltraShape® or Liposonix devices, are individuals who are realistic. They are slso happy to achieve between two and six centimeters of circumferential reduction with skin tightening and improvement in the appearance of their cellulite. Contraindications to these RF treatments, using non-invasive radiofrequency devices, include pregnancy, the presence of a pacemaker or inflammatory, infective or cancerous lesions in the areas of treatment.

What kind of anesthetic is used during a VelaShape™ non-surgical liposuction cellulite and fat reduction treatment?

As the non-invasive radiofrequency devices are not painful, non-surgical liposuction Toronto and fat reduction patients requires no local or topical anesthetic for VelaShape™ or other bulk heating radiofrequency devices.

How long does the VelaShape treatments and program take?

The VelaShape™ fat reduction treatment for each zone takes approximately 20 minutes. The treatment is required once a week for four to six weeks to optimize the outcome. The SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction fat reduction program, multiple non-invasive fat reduction devices will generally be deployed to optimize the permanent reduction of your fat. On average, each treatment will take between 20 and 30 minutes per zone and many patients will treat several zones at once. The most common zones treated include the lower abdomen and upper abdomen, hips, flanks, outer and inner thighs, inner knee and upper arm.

Is the VelaShape™ cellulite and fat reduction treatment painful?

Non-invasive radiofrequency treatments like the VelaShape™ are generally not painful and are well-tolerated. No local or topical anesthesia is required.

How long is the recovery following a VelaShape™ treatment and are there any VelaShape side effects?

In general, the VelaShape™ non-invasive radiofrequency fat reduction device has no significant recovery period. There are some minor VelaShape side effects. The area of treatment can be red and edematous, or swollen, for several hours, but patients can return to activities of normal living immediately.

What kind of VelaShape results can I expect following my cellulite and fat reduction treatment?

The SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program combines the best possible technologies proven to have the most efficacious permanent fat cell reduction outcomes, giving our patients the best results possible. Non-invasive radiofrequency devices, such as the VelaShape™ are combined with high-frequency focused ultrasound fat reduction devices, like the UltraShape™ and Liposonix™. This gives our patients the best of both types of procedures, delivering great fat reduction results while tightening and toning the skin in the treated area. Patients can expect, on average, between two and six centimeters circumferential reduction. In addition, noticeable skin tightening and cellulite smoothening and improvement is generally achieved. By combining radiofrequency devices with high frequency focused ultrasound devices, both skin tightening and permanent fat reduction can be assured.

What are VelaShape Toronto patients saying about their VelaShape™ experience at SpaMedica?

SpaMedica’s Toronto non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction patients generally are very happy with their non-invasive body contour improvement. Patients realize that at SpaMedica, they are getting the best combination of technologies to achieve the best body contour improvement possible. Most aesthetic non-surgical liposuction centers might offer you one technology and hope to give you the best result. However, at SpaMedica, you get multiple technologies to optimize the fat reduction, skin tightening and cellulite improvement results, that deliver the highest degree of patient satisfaction in the industry. Patients that choose  VelaShape™ are those individuals that understand they could get a better result with liposuction or excisional procedures, but instead have elected for a non-invasive, no-risk treatment option, and thus have realistic expectations about the results.

How long will the VelaShape™ fat reduction and skin tightening results last?

The SpaMedica combined non-surgical liposuction fat reduction program is designed for the permanent reduction of fat and skin tightening. Those fat cells that are permanently destroyed will not return and therefore the body contouring results achieved will thereby be permanent, as long as patients have weight maintenance. Any weight gain will result in excess calories being stored both in the non-surgical liposuction zone as well as other areas and will compromise the aesthetic outcome.

Is there any maintenance required following VelaShape™ fat reduction and skin tightening treatments?

Maintenance for radiofrequency bulk heating treatments like VelaShape™ is only required to maintain the enhanced skin tightening and cellulite improvement. No maintenance is required for the fat contouring as those fat cells are pertinently dead. However, the skin tightening improvement will need maintenance to ensure long term skin enhancement as the treated skin will be subject to normal aging and a single, non-invasive radiofrequency heating treatment once every three to four months to maintain skin thickening and tightness will be required.

How much will VelaShape cost?

VelaShape™ non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program is priced by treatment of a area and that treatment price is generally one-third of the cost of traditional excisional liposuction in the same area. Combination treatments with permanent focal fat reduction generally cost approximately $2,000 per zone for the entire program and many patients have a second and third zone treated for even more significant reduction results. SpaMedica also offers patient financing to make this treatment possible and affordable to all.
