What is body contouring with VelaShape III?
Body contouring at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic is performed with VelaShape III: a non-surgical treatment to help you achieve a toned and more shapely body – and reduce cellulite. It is ideal for treating the knees, bottom, thighs and stomach areas, when diet and exercise simply aren’t efficient enough.
Cellulite, known as ‘orange peel skin’, is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue. These underlying fat deposits in the skin create an unsightly dimpled appearance which is particularly noticeable on the buttocks, abdomen, thighs and upper arms. VelaShape III targets cellulite and loose skin and reduces the girth of the area at the same time.
VelaShape III combines infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy to heat fat cells, surrounding connective tissue and underlying dermal collagen fibres deeply yet gently, and vacuum to manipulate the skin. This stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin to reduce skin laxity and body volume, and improve your skin structure and texture.
VelaShape III also stimulates blood flow and circulation at the same time to encourage lymphatic drainage, increase collagen production for younger looking skin and improve metabolism at a cellular level.
The Velashape III device is the third generation of the VelaShape® body sculpting family. It has a higher energy density, resulting in circumferential reduction after just one treatment. It is CE-marked for body contouring and FDA-cleared for circumferential reduction of the abdomen, bottom, thighs and love handles.
