The VelaShape Procedure

VelaShape features the revolutionary elōs™ combination of Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage.

Our experts at Moradi M.D. use VelaShape’s precise heating to ensure a safe, effective, and fast treatment with no downtime. A vacuum and specially designed rollers for the mechanical massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers.

The result:

  • Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
  • Circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area

In a clinical multi-center study, 85% of the treated areas have reported circumferential reduction of thighs of at least 1cm; ranging up to 7.2cm in reduction.

What causes Cellulite?

The skin’s connective tissue surrounds fat cells, which are arranged in chambers. The margins of these chambers contain septae. Over time, the fat cells increase in size and number. This phenomenon, together with accumulation of localized edema, push the skin’s surface between the septae in an upward direction. This is what creates the lumpy and dimpled skin appearance, also known as cottage cheese, associated with cellulite.
