Velashape III Cellulite Treatment & Skin Tightening

Boca Raton, Palm Beach Florida


While maintaining a healthy lifestyle regular exercise and a nutritious diet is important, it may not be enough to rid the appearance of dimples and cellulite around the body. For the majority of women, cellulite affects the appearance of skin around the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Unfortunately, women tend to have higher levels of fat deposits than men, as a necessary component of reproduction and pregnancy. In addition, women tend to have skin that is thinner, making uneven cellulite clearly visible. Ennis Plastic Surgery offers VelaShape III for cellulite treatment & skin tightening.

The good news is that modern technology and years of clinical testing have produced a state of the art body contouring system that significantly improves the appearance of cellulite and body contours, The VelaShape III. VelaShape III is the most powerful version of the tried and trusted energy-based body contouring from Syneron-Candela.

VelaShape III Non-Invasive Technique

The VelaShape III treatment is a non-invasive body shaping system that combines three different energy technologies with therapeutic massage in order to reshape and contour the body. VelaShape III combines infrared (IR) heat, Bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and mechanical tissue manipulation with pulsed vacuum and massage rollers.

VelaShape rollers provide therapeutic massage, increasing circulation to the area throughout the treatment. Vacuum technology elevates the tissue, bringing the treatment area closer to the energy treatment source. Infrared (IR) light heats the targeted tissue to a depth of up to 3 mm. Bi-polar radio frequency energy guides heat evenly and quickly throughout the treatment area, to a depth of up to 15 mm, without skin damage. The combination of these energies causes deep heating of the fat cells, fibrous connective tissues and stimulates collagen fibers and local cellular metabolism.

Common Treatment Areas for Velashape III

The VelaShape treatment can be applied anywhere in the body that needs contouring. Common treatment areas include:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks

VelaShape is the only FDA cleared non-invasive treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite while reducing body circumference. In addition it is approved for all skin types.

The ideal candidate for Velashape is anyone looking to improve the tone, smoothness, and general appearance of any given area of the body. Most patients treated with Velashape are looking to improve moderate laxity of skin, address concerns of cellulite, or smooth any irregularity in fat distribution.

Cellulite Reduction Treatment

Cellulite is a structural skin change that occurs in most women post puberty, regardless of their weight. It presents as a change of skin appearance, evident by dimpling of the skin and uneven contours. It typically affects women on the pelvic, lower limb and abdomen regions. It is caused by herniation of subcutaneous fat within the fibrous connective tissue. Cellulite occurs in women of all ages, but tends to be more visible with age. In time, the skin loses thickness and elasticity, enhancing the visibility of cellulite bumps.

There’s no definite explanation for why cellulite occurs. The dimpling can be hereditary or due to living a less than healthy lifestyle. Hormonal imbalances and age-related weight changes can also impact the appearance of cellulite. No matter the cause, cellulite has met its match in the VelaShape III.

Three different types of energy are at work treating the structural causes of cellulite. A slight vacuum action gently pulls the uppermost layer of skin closer to the heat source, which is infrared light (IR). This enables an even application and stimulates the lymph system. Heat applied to the top layers of the dermis cause cellular turnover- out with the old skin cells and in with the new cells! Radio frequency (RF) penetrates more deeply, getting below the dermis to the subcutaneous fat cells causing them the shrink.

The combination of vacuum, IR and RF causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and the dermal collagen fibers. Together, these energies shrink the fat cells, soften the connective tissue and stimulate new collagen for better elasticity and resilience. This reduces the appearance of cellulite in the treated area.

The result is a localized reduction in skin laxity, increased volume and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture. The best patient outcomes are seen in patients who follow a healthy diet and lead an active lifestyle.

Fat Reduction and Skin Tightening Treatments

RF or radio frequency energy has been clinically proven to reduce the size of fat cells and provide skin tightening – are real one-two punch for trouble areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. In fact, adding a series of VelaShape III treatments to a medical weight loss program can provide tightening alongside fat loss for shapely, youthful results.

The VelaShape utilizes multiple energies to combat fat cells. Radio frequency penetrates below the dermis layer of skin, heating the fatty adipose tissue and shrinking the fat cells. The infrared heat penetrates into the dermis layer, which stimulates collagen production. New collagen production yields smoother, firmer and more elastic skin. The vacuum pressure gently pulls the targeted treatment area closer to the heat source, creating a more comfortable experience and consistent, efficient heating of target tissues.

  • Effective treatment is less time so your appointments fit into your life and the results are more quickly achieved
  • No downtime so you get right back to your day and are more likely to maintain the healthy lifestyle to support your well-being

How Velashape III Works

  1. A vacuum elevates the target tissue, bringing it closer to the energy source
  2. Infra-red light (IR) directly heats the targeted area
  3. Bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy safely guides the heat evenly throughout the target area, so the heat goes to work on fat cells without damaging the skin
  4. When these three energies combine to deep-heat cells and the surrounding tissue, the result is a smaller circumference and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

What to Expect during Velashape Treatments

Treatments are performed once a week, for a minimum of three treatments, and can last anywhere between 10-40 minutes, depending upon the area to be treated. The treatment is pain-free, so there is no anesthesia required. Patients can expect to feel gentle warming heat, as well as a comfortable massage.

Results can be seen as early as 1 week after the first treatment, although optimal results are seen after the final treatment. Results can continue to improve days, and weeks after completion of the VelaShape treatment series.
