We believe that it’s important to have options. That’s why at the Aesthetic Center of Orange County, we have several effective, evidence based strategies available for addressing your body contouring and aesthetic needs. Based in Newport Beach, we specialize not only in body contouring surgery but we also offer a variety of non-invasive, surgery-free strategies that are medically proven and FDA approved for body sculpting, body tightening, and cellulite reduction.
One such solution is known as VelaShapeIII. It is the third edition of the VelaShape system, and by far the most effective, as VelaShape has gone through a variety of upgrades ever since it was first released to the public. VelaShape III is the most comprehensive of the VelaShape devices and combines multiple treatment modalities into one device. The safety and effectiveness of the VelaShape treatment have been proven time and time again and VelaShape III boosts a 97% patient satisfaction rating. With more than 5 million VelaShape treatments performed world-wide, the popularity of VelaShape III is growing day by day.
VelaShape III is a body contouring and tightening device that can be used on its own for superficial fat reduction, for skin tightening, and /or for cellulite reduction. It provides these benefits using four separate modalities that include:
The result is localized circumference reduction and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
In multi-center clinical studies, VelaShape III demonstrated 2.6 cm of reduction in abdominal circumference and at least 1.5 cm of reduction in thigh circumference after a single treatment session. This is primarily due to the ability of the VelaShape III to reduce superficial fat as well as its skin tightening modality.
Although, VelaShape III is capable of reducing superficial fat pockets, the fat reduction is not as powerful as UltraShape or CoolSculpting. Thus, in our practice, VelaShape III plays a complimentary role to the other technologies such as CoolSculpting and UltraShape. Our premier treatment packages include combined CoolSculpting and VelaShape III or UltraShape and VelaShape III during the same treatment session. Whereas CoolSculpting or UltraShape are used to damage the deeper fat cells, VelaShape III is employed to damage the superficial fat and to tighten the skin. In this manner, not only fat loss is maximized but also the skin looseness that results from fat reduction is immediately managed and minimized. These results are enhanced further with multiple VelaShape III treatment sessions that are weekly or biweekly spaced.
VelaShape III is very popular for addressing cellulites, especially in areas like the buttocks and thighs. FDA-approved for cellulite reduction, VelaShape III uses a pulsed vacuum to draw up skin and cottage cheese fatty bumps of the cellulite into the VelaShape III machine applicator, where these tissues are exposed to heat and light via the radio frequency and infrared devices, respectively. The infrared heats up the superficial skin and the bipolar radio frequency heats up the superficial fatty layer under the skin. Coupled with pulsed vacuum, the 2 synergistic energies heat up the tissues deeper and faster. As the applicator is moved over the targeted cellulite, infrared light and radio frequency energy are continuously delivered to the treatment area. The combination of infrared and vacuum-coupled radio frequency causes deep heating of the fat cells (adipocytes), their surrounding connective fibrous septa and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This results in increased cellular metabolism and collagen deposition. Once finished, the massage roller will then complete the process and ensure that the treatment is spread evenly over the targeted area.
VelaShape III is one of the many options we have available at the Aesthetic Center of Orange County. Based in Newport Beach and led by famed plastic surgeon Dr. Siamak Agha, VelaShape III is a newly popular option that may be the right choice depending on your body needs, your schedule, and the budget you have available.
VelaShape III’s recovery is similar to CoolSculpting and UltraShape, in that there is no recovery time, or known side effects, or discomforts. Since VelaShape III is technically a different type of procedure compared to the other two forms of non-invasive body contouring, many people combine the two, using CoolSculpting and VelaShape III together to address both fat reduction and skin tightening, respectively. Similarly, VelaShape III can be combined with UltraShape to optimize skin tightening after UltraShape fat removal.
