Body contouring refers to a number of procedures which can be used separately or in combination to remove fat, and to rejuvenate and reshape areas of the body which have begun to sag and stretch out of shape, usually due to age or excessive weight loss. With the recent development of minimally invasive procedures, body contouring has grown in popularity in recent years, and more and more men and women are turning to these procedures to reshape stubborn areas of the body that do not respond to regular diet and exercise.
Body contouring recovery times can vary significantly depending upon the type of procedure being performed. Minimally invasive procedures such as mesotherapy, do not require downtime, allowing patients to resume routines immediately.
Technology behind VelaShape®
VelaShape 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.
