What is a VelaShape

VelaShape is a non-invasive radiofrequency device developed for skin tightening, body contouring and reducing cellulite.

Lumpy, dimpled flesh (cellulite) on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen is a very common problem for women. VelaShape treatment helps patients achieve their dream body, without having to experience an invasive procedure that requires a significant recovery period.

Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica were at the forefront of pioneering and developing the revolutionary VelaShape technology. The new VelaShape 3 is a top-of-the-line, bulk radiofrequency soft tissue heating system for fat reduction, cellulite improvement and skin tightening.

Combination is The Key

SpaMedica has the best selection of non-surgical liposuction technology in Canada. Each non-invasive liposuction program is customized to include the best possible combination of devices that will give the most effective permanent fat reduction, skin tightening, and muscle toning results. At the time of your consultation, your consult coordinator will review the best combination of technologies to provide the results you are looking for.

SpaMedica is Canada’s largest, oldest, and most respected private cosmetic laser center. Why are there so many non-surgical liposuction device options? The answer is simple: using only one device will not give the best results. Superior non-surgical liposuction, permanent fat reduction, tightening and smoothing outcomes are only achieved by the customized combination of two or more of the following technologies that work in different, synergistic and summative ways to achieve the best results, including:

● The new Evolve Tite Trim and Tone total tissue contouring

● SculpSure hyperthermic permanent fat removal

● CoolSculpting hypothermic permanent fat destruction

● UltraShape permanent ultrasonic fat reduction

● Vanquish hyperthermic microwave permanent fat reduction

● Venus Freeze

● BodyFX

● Exilis and Venus Legacy Radiofrequency skin tightening technologies

● Morpheus8 body fractional radiofrequency fat destruction

● Liposonix ultrasonic thermal fat destruction

● Zerona high fluence, low-level light laser

Simply put, the best results are achieved by combining the best technologies.

Who is a VelaShape Candidate?

VelaShape is effective in treating lumpy, dimpled skin that has puckered in areas of fat accumulation (cellulite). Cellulite is often most apparent on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. 

Those looking for a non-surgical alternative to cellulite reduction might find VelaShape to be a suitable alternative. Candidates should be close to their desired weight and have certain pockets of fat and loose skin that have been resistant to diet and exercise.

VelaShape improves skin texture and firmness as well as reducing fat.

Why Choose SpaMedica for VelaShape?

Your customized Cellulite reduction program will also include one, or more of the Cellfina, BodyFX, Venus Legacy and/or Exilis.

Non-Surgical VelaShape Alternatives

BodyFX, Venus Legacy, Excilis and the Cellfina are other cellulite reduction technologies that SpaMedica deploys to ensure you get the absolute best cellulite results.

How is a VelaShape Performed by Dr. Mulholland?

As non-invasive radiofrequency devices are not painful, no local or topical anesthetic is required for VelaShape.

The VelaShape 3 applicator is applied to the target area of concern and the soft tissue is treated with a high-frequency electrical current and suction-coupled infrared heat. This RF energy and infrared heat raise the temperature of the skin and fat.

Not only does the increase in temperature destroy fat cells, tightens cellulite but it also stimulates collagen and elastin which tighten the skin to improve cellulite.

How to Prepare for a VelaShape

Non-surgical liposuction treatments including VelaShape require little preparation work for patients. Before the appointment, patients should avoid getting sunburned and should not apply lotions or creams to the target area on the day of the procedure. Patients should make an effort to keep well hydrated and the surgeon may also advise medications like aspirin are avoided to reduce the likelihood of post-treatment bruising. 

The doctor will explain what you can do to best prepare during your VelaShape consultation.

What to Expect After a VelaShape

Patients can expect, on average, 50% cellulite reduction and between 2-3cm circumferential reduction following a series of 6-8 treatments, performed once a week. Noticeable skin tightness and cellulite smoothing are also achieved by combining radiofrequency devices with high-frequency-focused ultrasound devices.

No maintenance is required for the fat contouring as those results are permanent. However, skin tightening improvement will need maintenance to ensure long term skin enhancement. A non-invasive radiofrequency heating treatment once every four months will maintain tightness.

VelaShape Recovery & Timeline

Each VelaShape treatment in the program has no significant recovery period. Patients may experience some redness and swelling for several hours, but patients typically return to normal activities immediately.

Best Procedures Paired with VelaShape

Additional cellulite reduction and skin tightening technologies include the Cellfina, BodyFX, Venus Freeze and Venus Legacy. Laser hair removal also works well when paired with VelaShape.
