VelaShape Review - Does This Body Sculpting Work?
Don’t laugh, but well over 50% of diet products simply don’t work. So what about VelaShape? After taking a close look at the ingredients, side effects, science and customer service, we went one step further. We looked at hundreds of reviews to see what they had to say. Finally, we condensed everything to give you the bottom line.
What is VelaShape?
First thing, VelaShape claims to be a “medically proven solution to cellulite.” The idea is that you achieve body contouring with the treatments, which are administered at a clinic location, by a professional. It uses a combination of Bi Polar Radio Frequency, Infrared Light Energy and the Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to shrink fat cells. It takes multiple treatments to get good results, and the cost adds up.
VelaShape is the company behind the system, and appears to have been on the market since 2015. We like that it is FDA-cleared and done by professionals, but read on….
Not Available Everywhere – “Limited Locations”
The first thing we noticed is clinics are only available in certain areas throughout the United States and United Kingdom. “When there’s a limited number of locations, it means there’s a lot of people who don’t get to take advantage of the product, even if they want to,” explained our Research Editor.
”I don’t live near a major city and would have travel a long way to get one of these treatments,” shared one person interested in the treatment.
”It’s just not practical for me to travel as far as I would need to,” said another.
Some people, however, are willing to travel.
“It’s worth the 1 hour drive for me,” said a user.
“People thought I was crazy for driving more than an hour for these treatments, then they saw the results,” revealed a VelaShape customer.
VelaShape Ineffective – “Does It Really Work?”
Some people say they didn’t really see a difference, and it just doesn’t hold up over the long term.
”The cellulite is back to before. It was good for short term, it have to keep doing it weekly to get results,” said a former customer.
Others felt it works.
“I have to say this thing works! My skin has a thicker texture, tighter. My thighs and inner outer and tummy are tighter and smoother,” said one customer.
“Now that VelaShape has helped me take an inch off my abdomen, I feel like everything I try on fits a little bit better,” claimed one happy customer.
Over the years, we’ve learned that it doesn’t take much to send people looking for a better alternative. Learning how far you have to go to get to the nearest VelaShape center, the high cost of treatments, and possibly finding them ineffective is enough for many dieters.
The Science – “Not Impressive”
It works, but there’s no science to support it as a permanent solution for cellulite and weight-loss. Repeat treatments are necessary to see real results and that means compounding costs that can reach the thousands, eventually. If you don’t make lifestyle changes, there’s no reason to keep spending.
What Users Are Saying
"Love this lotion so much. It worked after only a couple of applications and I could actually see a difference after just 2 applications. I have been using another product, much more expensive for the past 2 years. So glad I decided to try this. Also, it does not burn. I have no idea why some people said that. I even applied it after the shower."
"Verdict is still out!"
"No inches off my waist and the dimpleness was still there…in fact, the Velashape bruised some area of my abdomen and back (midsection)."
The Bottom Line – Does VelaShape Work?
What’s the real deal with VelaShape? It appears to be a temporary fix, and it takes multiple treatments to see results. We are concerned that the cost makes it not sustainable for some people, not to mention the fact that the changes won’t last long if you don’t alter diet and exercise habits.
If you’re ready to say goodbye to the extra weight for good, we suggest using a dietary supplement with clinically tested ingredients, shown to help boost your metabolism and suppress your appetite. To get the maximum result, make lifestyle changes to include a reduced calorie diet and regular exercise routine.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. It is formulated using only ingredients clinically tested and shown to help boost metabolism for faster weight-loss compared to diet and exercise alone. And, we couldn’t locate any negative mentions of the product or talk of harmful side effects. Users are reporting amazing results and the cost doesn’t break the bank.
And right now, there’s a special trial offer available directly from the manufacturer. It always helps to see this kind of thing, because it’s a vote of confidence in the product.
Previous VelaShape Review (Updated January 28, 2013):
VelaShape: What You Should KnowThe 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.
Product Features of VelaShapeThe 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.
ConclusionWe 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.
This is an FDA approved Bi Polar Radio Frequency and Infrared Light Energy that vacuums and massages cellulite to shrink fat cells. There are no ingredients.
