What is VelaShape Body Contouring?
You’ll have heard the terms “body contouring” used from time to time but a lot of casual observers will be a little fuzzy with regards to what it means and the exact way in which this amazing treatment works on the body.
Cellulite affects 80% of women over the age of 20 and can contribute to feeling self conscious and shy about exposing certain areas of the body. Body contouring, or what is known as VelaShape treatment is a highly regarded solution to this problem, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
At The Image Clinic, we’re perfectly placed to help!
So, what is VelaShape?
VelaShape is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that aims to smooth down cellulite and shape the body. It’s designed to improve love handles, tighten you up and reduce the appearance of cellulite, helping you look and feel great.
Here at the Image Clinic, we use a treatment called VelaShape 3. Find out more here.
How does VelaShape 3 work?
As a painless treatment, you won’t require any numbing or anaesthesia. VelaShape feels like a warming deep tissue massage and works by applying a vacuum to the skin to raise the areas being worked on to the surface. The area is heated by infrared lighting and treated by bi-polar radio frequency waves. Sounds scientific but it’s very simple, safe and doesn’t take very much time at all.
Treatment takes up to an hour and the treated area may feel a little red and warm afterwards. You may experience a little bruising but this is unlikely.
Is body contouring suitable for me?
