How Does VelaShape III Work?
With VelaShape III®, PrecisionMD Cosmetic Surgery Center is now able to provide non-surgical body shaping to patients throughout the Sacramento area. VelaShape III combines three different energy sources—bi-polar radio frequency, infrared light, and vacuum—to create a synergistic deep heat source that shrinks tissue, including fat cells. The process is non-invasive, so you get all of the quick benefits of surgery and none of the downtime surgery carries with it.
First, your cosmetic surgeon lifts the target tissue with a vacuum source so it is closer to the remaining energy sources. Next, your surgeon targets the area with infrared light to heat the tissue. The heat takes a precise, even path throughout the targeted area as the bi-polar radio frequency energy guides it, speeding the heating process without damaging the skin.
Are VelaShape III Treatments Painful?
VelaShape III isn’t just highly effective—it’s also minimally uncomfortable, and for some, even pleasant. The technique delivers amazing results with low level discomfort, and in verified VelaShape III reviews, some patients compare the treatment to a deep-tissue, warming massage. You can either undergo three shorter treatments or one longer treatment. Our courteous staff will help you decide which is the better choice for you. VelaShape III side effects are minimal.
How Quickly Will I Notice A Change In Cellulite And Circumference After VelaShape III Treatments
Immediately after treatment you will notice that the surface of your skin feels firmer and smoother. Gradually, the results will continue to accumulate, and you will see a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and a smaller circumference throughout the VelaShape III treated area. You will see the best results at about 10 weeks after the treatment.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the dimpling and jiggling of the skin that worsens over time as collagen structures deteriorate with age. Cellulite occurs in both sexes, although it is seen primarily in women. Uneven tension within the fat’s hypodermal layer causes cellulite, as the dimpling, uneven skin surface effect appears. Overgrowth of fat cells, poor circulation, and trapped lymph all contribute to the appearance of cellulite.
Which Body Parts Can Be Treated With VelaShape III?
The VelaShape III treatment can be used on any body area that needs shaping or contouring: thighs, flanks, arms, abdomen, and more. Wherever you are troubled by your cellulite, the VelaShape III machine offers an effective solution to your problem.
Is The VelaShape III Treatment Safe?

What Do I Feel During A VelaShape III Treatment?
