Cellulite, loose body skin and stubborn fat deposits can be tightened and reduced using the Velashape treatment. The Velashape is a revolutionary body contouring technology that uses a combination of mechanical massage, radiofrequency, infra-red and heat energies to break down subcutaneous fat deposits, lipocutaneous fibres and tighten skin.
Velashape body reshaping treatments are performed in Glasgow and Bothwell by our expert aesthetic therapists.
The end result is a reduction in circumferential size, i.e you can drop a jean size or reduce your thighs. The treatment can be used anywhere on the body and common areas are the thighs, love handles, saddle bags, abdomen and arms.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a dimpling of the skin, typically seen on the skin on the thighs and buttocks although it can occur anywhere. It is more common in women than men and it caused by age related changes to fibrous tissues that run through the fat layer under the skin. We can smooth out the cellulite with Velashape II treatments leaving your skin smooth again.
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is a broad term that applies to techniques to change your body shape, restoring a more youthful figure. We use the Velashape II technology to help tighten skin, smooth cellulite and reduce the circumference of the waist, abdomen and thighs. Velashape can also be used to help tighten up loose skin and fat under the arm.
What are the treatments like?
The VelashapeII treatment can be described as an enhanced deep tissue massage. The skin is heated up with infrared energy and massaged both physically and by vacuum whilst also being treated with radio frequency energy, The treatments are generally comfortable but the areas treated can feel a little tender afterwards, similar to the feeling of muscle ache after a workout session.
How many treatments are required?
It depends on the amount of cellulite or loose skin we are treating, as well as the desired end result. We usually recommend a series of 4 or more treatments.
