Arm Fat Removal

Traditional liposuction is a significantly invasive procedure which involves removal of fat from targeted body areas. You can achieve slimmer arms with a revolutionary new treatment called VelaShape II. It helps in contouring the upper arms without the need for anesthesia or scalpels.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides non-surgical upper arm fat reduction treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities.

What is VelaShape II?

VelaShape II is the product of four different technologies aimed at shrinking fat cells. The treatment makes use of the following:

  • Radio frequency
  • Infrared light
  • Vacuum suction
  • Mechanical massage

How Does it Work?

VelaShape II will be placed on the skin of your upper arm. It will use massage rollers and vacuum technology to knead the treatment area and create a suction of sorts. Radiofrequency energy along with infrared light will temporarily penetrate fat cells and perforate their membranes. This causes fat cells to release glycerol and fatty acids into the body.

The massage and light therapy also stimulates collagen production resulting in a better skin texture. This is why VelaShape II is FDA cleared for reducing cellulite appearance temporarily.

Number of Treatments Required

Most patients tend to notice visible results after three sessions. However, you may need 4 – 6 sessions spaced a week apart for optimal results. Each treatment session takes only about 30 minutes.

Target Areas

VelaShape II can be used for treating buttocks, upper arms, thighs, love handles, and abdomen. The treatment is non-invasive and quite comfortable.

Ideal Candidacy for VelaShape II

You are a suitable candidate if you meet the following:

  • Not be susceptible to blood clots
  • Not be diagnosed as having diabetes
  • Exhibit cellulite around abdomen, pelvis, or limbs
  • Not be pregnant (doctor approval required)
  • Not have a pacemaker (doctor approval required)

Downtime and Results Associated with VelaShape II

There is no downtime to the treatment. Results tend to be temporary since VelaShape II only shrinks fat cells and doesn’t destroy them completely. You can ensure long lasting results with a balanced diet. You can prolong results by reducing your calorie intake.

Neck Fat Removal

VelaShape II is a non-invasive contouring treatment that slims and shapes the body by reducing circumference and improving cellulite production. VelaShape II combines infrared (IR), bi-polar radiofrequency, and vacuum technologies to promote cellular metabolism, lymphatic drainage, circulation, and collagen production by heating fat cells (adipocytes).

All these measures help in reducing skin laxity by enhancing skin appearance. VelaShape II helps in achieving a contoured, toned and well-shaped body and neck in three typical treatment sessions. There is a single treatment protocol available as well. You can feel more youthful with dramatic results and zero downtime or discomfort.

Understanding VelaShape II

VelaShape II fat reduction is a body contouring treatment that reduces cellulite and circumference in a non-invasive manner. It enables you to achieve a contoured, toned, and well-shaped body in three typical treatment sessions. Patients enjoy dramatic improvements in their body with combined infrared (IR), bi-polar radiofrequency, and vacuum technology. There is no significant discomfort or downtime associated with the technology.

Technology behind VelaShape II

VelaShape II technology is a unique combination of bi-polar radio frequency energy, infrared light, and vacuum for heating fat cells in the deeper skin layers. It surrounds connective tissue and underlying dermal collagen fibers. New and better elastin and collagen growth is stimulated with the device. This results in the reduction of body volume, skin laxity while improving the overall appearance of skin texture and structure.

Ideal Candidacy for VelaShape II

VelaShape II provides gradual and cumulative results. It should not be confused with weight loss treatments. It uses a combination of revolutionary technologies for contouring the body and reducing stubborn spots where exercise and diet cannot reach.

Ideal VelaShape II candidate would be someone with a Body Mass Index of less than 30. People falling under the Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2 are usually recommended to undergo this treatment.

How Does VelaShape II Work?

VelaShape II technology combines bi-polar radio frequency energy, infrared light, and vacuum to heat fat cells at the deeper layers. It also heats underlying dermal collagen fibers and surrounding connective tissue. Growth of new and better elastin and collagen is stimulated with this type of efficient vacuuming and heating. The results are localized reduction in body volume, skin laxity, and an overall improvement in the appearance of skin texture and structure.

VelaShape II Requires Zero Downtime

VelaShape treatment sessions have zero recovery time associated with them. Patients can return to normal activity after the procedure. However, few patients experience mild side effects such as bruising and redness that is temporary in nature.
