Tummy Fat Removal

VelaShape II is a cutting edge technology that contours body fat in a non-invasive manner. The treatment is effective for skin firming/tightening, cellulite reduction, and reducing fatty deposits and circumference in flanks, abdomen and other areas. VelaShape II safely and effectively shapes, contours, and slims down the abdominal area by firming up the fat pockets and reducing cellulite.

Patients typically notice visible results in circumferential reduction after 3 – 6 treatments. The surface of the skin also appears firmer and smoother. Few patients see results right after the first visit. The treatment resulted in patients reducing circumference by one full dress size in clinical trials after a series of sessions.

During your initial consultation, explore your best treatment options for abdominal contouring with your surgeon. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides non-surgical tummy fat reduction treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities.

Are Results Quick?

You will notice a gradual improvement in the targeted area almost immediately. The skin will begin feeling firmer and smother. Over time you will notice the circumference reducing all over the treated area. There will also be significant reduction in cellulite appearance. However, best results would take at least 10 weeks to manifest completely.

Are Results Permanent?

VelaShape II results in temporary results. However, you can prolong results with a follow-up treatment regimen. VelaShape II is a non-invasive procedure and you would need to support it with a balanced diet and exercise routine.

Number of Sessions Required

You would need about 3 – 4 treatment sessions for achieving the best results. You can substitute a longer session with multiple shorter ones. Your treatment provider will determine the best plan for you.

Causes of Cellulite

There is no specific or detailed explanation to the occurrence of cellulite. It is usually the result of an unhealthy lifestyle. However, it can also be caused because of hormonal changes and genetics. Many people, especially women get cellulite even after maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following an exercise regimen.

VelaShape II Is Safe and Painless

VelaShape II treatment is an effective and safe procedure for all skin colors, textures, and types. There are no short or long term side effects to the procedure. Most patients call the procedure to be painless. They describe the sensation as getting a warm deep-tissue massage.

The device has easily adjustable treatment parameters to customize your experience and make it as comfortable as possible. Few patients report skin redness and mild bruising which disappears after a few hours.

VelaShape II Technology

VelaShape II makes use of a combination of different technologies for contouring the body and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Bi-polar radio frequency energies and infrared light heat the surrounding tissues and fat cells. VelaShape II makes use of thermal energy very safely. Higher levels of thermal heat help in attaining better results.

Additionally, a higher degree of controlled heat will lead to quicker results in the body and you can notice a marked improvement in your cellulite and fat reduction. Many patients report of visible results after the first result.

Thigh Fat Removal

VelaShape II treatment is recommended for patients that are normal to overweight and suffer from stubborn fat deposits or unsightly cellulite in the pelvic region, hips, thighs, and abdomen. The patients should be committed to a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle for optimized results.

Your treatment provider will determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure or not. Feel free to ask questions during your initial consultation and clear all your doubts and concerns before going ahead with the treatment. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides non-surgical thigh fat reduction treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.

How Does VelaShape II Work?

VelaShape II combines suction massage, bipolar radiofrequency electrical energy, and infrared light energy. The energy works in a synergistic fashion to heat collagen, fat, and connective tissue underlying the skin. It also helps in improving the lymphatic flow and circulation of the treated area. As a result, there is an increase in metabolic pressure while the skin and collagen becomes firm.

VelaShape II Target Areas

VelaShape II is usually performed on the thighs and buttocks. It can also be performed on flanks and abdominal area to target stubborn unwanted fat in the region. Many people seek the treatment in their arms to get better toned upper arms.

How Many Procedures Are Required?

You would need more than a few procedures to get optimal results. There are many internal and external changes that take place in your body as you age. Cellulite and fat pockets become more stubborn. You would need 1 to 2 maintenance sessions every 4 to 6 months if you want to prevent new cellulite formation and want to maintain optimal results.

Time Taken By Each Treatment

Size and number of target areas determine the treatment time taken. The size of an 8 1/2” x 11” piece of paper can be treated at a time. Each area requires about 20 to 30 minutes to be treated properly.

Ideal Way to Maintain Results

People who are naturally fit will find it easy to maintain VelaShape II results. Others may have to work a little harder at exercise and diet to maintain their figure. Generally, the best way to prolong results is to keep up with regular physical exercise and have a healthy diet.

VelaShape II is a safe procedure and involves minor bruising. There is also a low risk of skin burns which is natural with any device using energy for producing heat. Properly trained providers can minimize the risk of side effects.

Alternatives to VelaShape II

VelaShape II is the first and only FDA cleared device for reducing circumference and cellulite in the thigh area. It combines three unique energies – infra-red light energy, radiofrequency electrical energy, and suction massage for delivering best results.

Alternative treatments are usually stand-alone infrared, massage, or radiofrequency. They don’t have the synergistic effect of combining various energies as VelaShape II does. The technology begins showing results where diet and exercise fails at reducing stubborn cellulite.
