How much does VelaShape cost?

While costs can vary between doctors and different areas of the country, prices range, on average, between $250 to $900 per treatment. While 3-6 treatments are recommended, Doctor Petrungaro will determine the number of treatments you will need depending on the body area you are interested in addressing.

What will VelaShape do? (And what it won’t do.)

VelaShape 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 VelaShape won’t do is cause you pain or harm surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle.

What can I expect from VelaShape treatments?

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

What is the VelaShape procedure like?

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours.

Is VelaShape right for me?

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 BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2. Ask your doctor to see if you’re a candidate for VelaShape treatments.

The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Scale

STAGE 1
NO dimpling while the patient is standing or lying down, but the pinch test reveals the “orange peel” appearance.
STAGE 2
“Orange peel” dimpling appears spontaneously when standing up, but NOT when lying down.
STAGE 3
“Orange peel” dimpling appears spontaneously both when standing up AND lying down.

Additional FAQ

IS VELASHAPE RIGHT FOR ME?
VelaShape is ideal for people with stubborn fat, loose skin, and cellulite. For best results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise is recommended. VelaShape does not achieve major weight loss.
IS VELASHAPE SAFE?
VelaShape is FDA-cleared for selective, non-invasive cellulite and skin circumference reduction. It has been shown to be safe in extensive clinical trials, and over 1,000,000 treatments have been performed worldwide.
ARE VELASHAPE TREATMENTS PAINFUL?
Most people report a warming, comfortable experience and side effects are extremely rare. There is no soreness or numbness after treatment.
ARE THERE ANY VISIBLE SIGNS OF TREATMENT?
The VelaShape procedure may cause a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours*.
WHAT AREAS CAN I TREAT WITH VELASHAPE?
VelaShape can be used to treat the abdomen, waist, back bra rolls, upper arms, thighs, and hips/saddlebags. If you can “pinch an inch,” the area can likely be treated!
HOW SOON CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Many people reported seeing results as early as 2 weeks after their first treatment, but you should expect to see the best results after a full series of treatments, ranging from 3 to 6 total*.
CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER TREATMENT?
There is no downtime—not even social downtime—after a VelaShape treatment. You can resume your normal daily activities right away.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Three to six treatments spaced 2 weeks apart are recommended. This timing gives your body time to regenerate appropriate amounts of collagen and elastin as well as clear unwanted fat from the treatment area, maximizing your results*.
ARE RESULTS PERMANENT?
Your results will vary. Results from the VelaShape are very long-lasting; however, as we age our skin and tissues age as well, no matter what treatments are done. For best results, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
