What is VellaShape III?
VelaShape III™ Cellulite Reduction Treatments reduces dimpling caused by cellulite, shrinks fat cells and improve skin texture on the thighs, abdomen, and flanks. It is the first Health Canada and FDA cleared non-invasive medical solution for circumferential reduction, cellulite reduction and body contouring. VelaShape III™ technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

What is cellulite?
Cellulite occurs primarily in women but sometimes in men as well. Cellulite is used to describe superficial areas of trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or “orange peel” skin. It appears in 80% of post-adolescent women. Common areas where cellulite is found are the thighs, buttocks, and the abdomen. Cellulite is not related to obesity as it occurs in overweight, normal, and thin women. Hypertrophied adipocytes, trapped lymph and poor circulation all contribute to the cellulite phenomenon. This treatment reduces the appearance of cellulite, tightens skin & stimulates the formation of new collagen without surgery or downtime.
What causes cellulite?
- Poor circulation
- Lack of exercise
- Hormonal influences
