Introduction to VelaShape

    “Hi my name is Abby and I’m one of the aesthetic registered nurses here at the Appearance Care Center in The Maas Clinic in San Francisco and Lake Tahoe.

    Velashape is a non-invasive treatment that improves cellulite appearance and circumference reduction on areas like the abdomen, thighs, flanks or any areas in your body wherein you want to improve the appearance of cellulite, and smooth the area.

    So "How does the Velashape work?"

    It uses infrared light or heat, radio frequency, suction and mechanical massage to improve the appearance of cellulite on the area and circumference reduction.

    The infrared light or the heat shrinks the fat cells and reduces the size of the fat cells. While the RF helps stimulates collagen production and tighten the area which causes circumference reduction. The suction and the mechanical massage help the target tissue or the fat cells reach the energy that's being delivered by the Velashape.

    You're going to see gradual results from Velashape. Normally it takes about 4 to 6 treatments to be able to see results depending on how big the area is, and but with one single treatment you're going to see a difference right away but Velashape is a program, you have to drink lots of water with it, be compliant with diet and exercise recommendations, and exercise meaning we don’t need you to do strenuous exercise every day, 30 minutes or an hour of jogging a day is all you need.
