Is VelaShape Body-Shaping Right for You? | Blog | Russo

These days you have some promising options when it comes to slimming, firming, and reshaping your figure. Some of the procedures are especially attractive because they’re noninvasive, meaning they don’t require surgery. One of these choices is VelaShape.

VelaShape stands out among non-surgical body-shaping options because it’s the first of these approaches to be FDA approved. It’s a safe, effective procedure that causes very little discomfort.

Yes, VelaShape sounds almost too good to be true! But it’s in fact very real technology that’s giving many individuals the smoother and toned physiques they dream of.

How VelaShape Works
VelaShape can start to work in as few as four treatment sessions. You’ll see the results gradually, but you’ll continue to lose inches, get firmer, and see less cellulite as you continue the regimen. Areas targeted with VelaShape include the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, sides, and abdomen—spots where many of us would like a little makeover.

VelaShape reduces cellulite, firms, and tones using vacuum technology. This technology manipulates your skin while energy from infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency gently heats fat cells and surrounding tissue. The result over the course of your treatments is reduced circumference and less noticeable cellulite in the treated areas.

VelaShape and You
It’s important to remember that VelaShape isn’t a weight loss treatment in the same ways that diet and exercise or liposuction are. What is does do is support your diet and exercise efforts by reaching areas that you can’t seem to firm and slim, no matter how well you eat and how much you work out. And finding something that does work can be a huge relief and reward when you’ve been working hard!

VelaShape can be a great option if you’re overweight, but not obese—meaning a BMI no greater than 30. Your doctor can help you determine if you’re a good candidate for this slimming and toning procedure.
