What You Should Know
The official website for Velashape tells us that Velashape is “a medically proven solution to cellulite.” The manufacturers say that with Velashape it is now easier to reshape your body, improve your lifestyle and feel better about yourself. The manufacturers claim that Velashape’s revolutionary technology can help achieve body contouring, through circumferential reduction. The Velashape treatment consists of several strangely named technologies, including Bi Polar Radio Frequency, Infrared Light Energy and Vacuum and Mechanical Massage. The treatment are administered by professionals in a participating office.
The manufacturers tell us on the official Velashape website that Velashape is a solution to cellulite that has appeared on part of the user’s body due to age or pregnancy. They say that the combination of the Bi Polar Radio Frequency, Infrared Light Energy and the Vacuum and Mechanical Massage will increase the body’s water drainage and reduce (or at least shrink) the size of actual fat cells. They say that the result of this circumferential reduction is that your cellulite will be diminished.
The official website shows before and after photos of users who have had the Velashape treatment, and it also has positive testimonials from those that have used the system. The manufacturers of Velashape say that, when having your Velashape treatment, you will feel as if you are having a deep tissue massage. Velashape treatments are available in the United States and the UK. The official website has a search engine that allows you to find a clinic in your region that offers Velashape treatments. The Velashape website tells us that you will need four initial treatments, and then a maintenance treatment once per month. It says that you will notice a difference six to eight weeks after the last treatment. We are told that the cost of the treatment will range from person to person and will depend on the degree of cellulite, the amount of body fat, and your individual response to the treatment.
- The official website says that Velashape has been approved by the Food and Drugs Administration as a safe treatment.
- There is an official website for Velashape.
- There is no surgical procedure involved.
- The website does not tell us an exact cost for the treatment (it sounds pretty expensive.)
- If you live outside of the United States or the UK, it seems that you will not be able to access the treatment.
- There do not seem to have been any long term controlled standardized tests carried out.
- The website says you will need to continue having once a month maintenance treatments, which could become tedious and pricey.
We all dream of a solution to cellulite, and certainly the information given on the official Velashape website is impressive. Although it is approved by the Food and Drugs Administration for safety, this is not the same as an approval of efficacy. While it looks like there is some serious cutting edge technology going on with Velashape, the fact remains that this is not a treatment for those who wish to lose weight. If you have some cellulite patches that you find troubling, you could do worse than consult your physician to find out pricing details, but if you’re looking to drop real weight you’d probably be better off with a more traditional weight loss supplement.
