VelaSmooth technology that combines four powerful energies:
- Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF)
- Infrared Light energies
- Negative pressure (vacuum) and
- Tissue manipulation (mechanical massage)
Cellulite treatment areas could be on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.
VelaSmooth 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.
VelaSmooth uses vacuum technology to manipulate your skin while infrared light (IR) and bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energies will gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue. Over the course of your treatments, you will notice a reduction in both circumference and in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas.
- Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
- Circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area
Most patients find VelaSmooth 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.
A body contouring spray is applied prior to treatment and you’ll feel a deep, soothing heat in the targeted area. The VelaSmooth Bi Polar treatment head gently warms the target tissue to 40 degrees for 12 minutes. The conducted RF increases oxygen intracellular diffusion by heating the adipose (fatty) tissue to a depth of 5-15mm; the infrared light increases elasticity of skin and heats subcutaneous fat (beneath the skin) to a depth of up to 5mm, while safeguarding the skin from damage; and the tissue mobilization (vacuum) manipulates and smoothes out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient energy delivery. Tissue mobilization is facilitated by rotating, self-cleaning electrodes to ensure excellent coupling with the skin. There is no down time and the treatment is comfortable.
Most people experience no side effects, though some report reddening, swelling or bruising of the treatment area, which typically disappears in a few days or weeks.
There are no known long-term health hazards – both light and electric energy have safely been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics.
Patients may notice a slight increase in urine output following treatment. This is because the broken down cells are absorbed and excreted via the lymphatic system.
Patients have compared the feeling of the treatment to the sensation of an intense workout or a deep tissue massage. You may resume your normal daily activities immediately after the session, even sports activities. Most patients go straight back to work or straight to the gym.
For VelaSmooth treatment sessions (30 – 45 minutes long) are usually recommended twice weekly with an average of 8 – 10 sessions in a treatment programme, followed by monthly ongoing maintenance.
Any less than 4 sessions will generally not provide a long lasting change, so please be prepared to commit to a program.
A full consult is required to assess areas for treatment and determine exact pricing. The price of one standard session varies from $200 to $350, with generous discounts applied to package purchases.
As the effects of aging, hormones or a stressed diet or lifestyle may happen, we recommended a top-up session every three to six months (your individual needs will determine when and how often maintenance is required).
We provide a recommended home care regime and lifestyle advice which will help you stay in shape and keep fluid and excess weight to a minimum, maximize results and keep you looking your best in the long term.
