VelaShape II


VelaShape is our body contouring device that helps smooth away cellulite and reducing the circumference of the treated area. Vela shape combines four different type of technology including infrared, Bi-Polar radio-frequency and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed vacuum and massage rollers. How it works is the infrared and vacuum coupled radio frequency technologies cause deep heating of the connective tissue including the fibrous septae. This in turn promotes an increase of collagen depositing and cellular metabolism.


  • Heats in the dermis activate the production of new collagen leading to skin tightening.
  • Heats the hypodermis and increases the metabolic rate of fat cells, which become smaller, leading to cellulite reduction.
  • Reduces inches after liposuction
  • Smooth’s out skin after weight loss
  • Reshapes and tones loose skin
  • Reduces appearance of cellulite
  • Helps smooth out cellulite

Recommended number of treatments:

  • For your optimal results we recommend you do 6 sessions once a week for 6 weeks.


BodyFX is what we like to think of as our laser to destroy the fat cells.  BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. Radio frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissue to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy work synergistically to provide body contouring results.


  • Superior non-invasive body contouring as an alternative approach to liposuction, or as an adjunct to liposuction
  • Permanent fat reduction
  • Improvement of appearance of cellulite
  • Reduction of dimpled skin
  • There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. 
  • It can be a lunch time procedure.

Recommended number of treatments:

  • We would recommend 8 sessions done weekly over the next 8 weeks.
  • Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments – with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.

Post treatment:

Patients may notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.
