What is VelaShape®?

VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction, so set up your VelaShape® consultation with Dr. Banks today. VelaShape® can help you achieve the smoothness you’ve always wanted. The causes of fat and cellulite are various and multiple, even for a given patient, and can range from hormones and age to heredity, as each of these factors can play a role in the accumulation of excess fat and unsightly dimply, lumpy patches of unwanted fat around your body. The VelaShape® system is a clinically proven, non-surgical solution that’s designed to contour areas of your body, such as your thighs, abdomen, and buttocks, resistant to weight loss through diet and exercise. It is quite quickly rising in popularity as more people realize the benefits and see results for themselves.

What are the Benefits of VelaShape®?

VelaShape® II provides a highly effective solution for comfortable, non-invasive body contouring. The VelaShape® treatments involve the use of infrared light, radiofrequency, massage rollers, and suctioning to enable Dr. Banks to precisely and artistically contour your body. Treatment areas with VelaShape® can be on your neck (under your chin), your arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen, and most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout their treatment regime.

Who is a Candidate for VelaShape®?

VelaShape® is not a weight loss treatment. VelaShape® uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape® patient is someone with a Body Mass Index of less than 30, but who, despite rigorous diet and exercise, is unable to shed those last pounds of resistant body fat. Contact us today to set up your consultation with Dr. Banks and find out if you’re a candidate for expert VelaShape® treatments.

What is the Procedure for VelaShape®?

After preparing the area to be treated and assuring your comfort, Dr. Banks applies the VelaShape® handpiece directly to the surface of your skin in the area to be treated. Mechanical rollers on the handpiece will massage and smooth out your skin, while at the same time directing infrared radio frequencies into your skin. The radio frequencies warm up your underlying tissue, causing the fat cells to melt and break up. The fat is then naturally flushed out of your body. Past patients say the procedure feels like a warm, deep tissue massage, and they report losing inches as well as pounds after the minimally invasive VelaShape® II procedure.

How Much Does VelaShape® Cost?

Every patient is different, and each patient’s unique needs are different, so take the time to schedule a one-on-one VelaShape® consultation now with Dr. Banks, and we will go over in detail all of your payment options, including financing.
