VelaShape is FDA approved which combines energies known as elōs to precisely target and heat fatty tissues within the treatment area. The synergistic combination of infrared and conducted RF energies increases oxygen intracellular diffusion by heating the skin. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy (lipolysis) thereby reducing or shrinking the size of the actual fat chamber. In addition, the vacuum and tissue manipulation evens out the skin to reveal a smoother, tighter figure. By combining our Velashape Contour Applicator, which delivers deeper, dense heating to smaller target treatment areas in conjunction with the larger, Velashape Body Applicator, we can achieve more pronounced results, faster. The Net Result: A non-invasive, non-surgical no downtime body contouring and cellulite treatment to remove that lumpy bumpy appearance of cellulite and a trimming effect.
With VelaShape, you can be treated on body areas such as the thighs, buttocks, love handles, upper arms, legs, flanks, saddlebags, buttocks and the neck. The two applicators (VSmooth & VContour) on the VelaShape device are designed for large and small body areas; therefore, treatment is safe and effective.
Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, firmer and tighter. Results in Circumference and Cellulite Reduction will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session. In clinical research published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, 90 percent of adult women treated with the VelaShape system noticed overall improvement. Almost 95 percent of the women who saw improvement planned to purchase additional VelaShape therapy on other areas of their bodies after the research study ended. Cellulite is a natural part of your body, and no therapy, not even surgery, can eliminate it. The VelaShape therapy, however, re-contours the cellulite layers, and will smooth them out to reduce or eliminate the unsightly ridges or cottage cheese appearance of untreated cellulite.
The number of treatments varies based on the area of the body being treated and on a variety of personal characteristics. Clients generally see significant improvement after four to six sessions scheduled one week apart will deliver maximum results.
Depending on the area each session is usually less than 30-45 minutes.
In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of about 1 to 3 inches post treatment series. In clinical trials, the range of Circumferential Reduction was between 0.5-3 inches.
Following your complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
FDA cleared, the device is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. Short term effects can include mild bruising or redness.
The majority of the population is suitable for receiving the VelaShape treatment. You should consult with our staff for a consultation to determine if you are a suitable candidate for treatment and to discuss treatment contra-indications.
Most patients claim that the treatment is pleasant, followed by a deep heating sensation beneath their skin.
Most patients find VelaShape treatments comfortable like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear redder than usual for several hours.
Post treatment skin on treated area could feel tighter. It is normal to have an inner heated sensation for up to a few hours post treatment. In some cases, mild redness can be observed.
Our advantage is our technology. Today, there are no other methods available that include a combination of Bi-Polar RF, Infrared Light, Vacuum and Mechanical Massage like VelaShape, and no other method can guarantee the clinically proven results, efficacy and safety in as few as 4 treatments as the VelaShape.

VelaShape is the only non-surgical medical device cleared by the FDA for circumferential reduction.
Traditional weight loss methods (dieting), leave your body feeling like it's starving, which causes the body to go into "conservation mode". This means that your metabolism slows down and your body starts using it's energy more efficiently, making it harder for you to shed fat and pounds. When the diet is over and the weight starts creeping back on, your body will pack on a few extra pounds to store up for the next time it anticipates a famine. By contrast, Ultrasonic Cavitation doesn't cause the body to "panic", and it won't fight against you by working so hard to hold on to it's fat reserves. The fat is eliminated naturally, being processed by your body's own filtration system. Compared to surgical methods (gastric bypass, lap band, liposuction, etc), there is no scarring, no bleeding, no risk of infection, no pain, no down-time for recovery and, in most cases, Ultrasonic Cavitation is much more affordable. Compared to fat-freezing and laser fat removal procedures (such as iLipo, Zerona and SmartLipo), the results are more immediate and dramatic and there is absolutely no pain or down-time.
Other reasons: Obesity increases physical stress and stress-related pain, takes up to 10 years off your life expectancy, is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease and is associated with type 11 diabetes (the most common type.) Obesity lowers your self-esteem, motivation and overall productivity, which can result in laziness, depression, lack of career success and more obesity. Achieving an appropriate level of body fat will result in better health, fewer aches & pains, less stress, better quality sleep, more energy, fewer health-related expenses, better self-esteem, less need for medical treatment and prescription drugs, better moods, healthier relationships and more satisfying sex.
The Ultrasonic Cavitation machine uses sound waves/frequencies to disrupt the fat cell walls, which causes the fat cells to "leak" their contents into the fluid spaces of your body. From there, your lymph system picks up this waste material (the loose fat) and begins circulating it through your body until it can be processed by the liver and eliminated with sweat, urine and feces. The results are visibly noticeable immediately, however the entire process can take several days, and you will continue to experience results during this time.
Cavitation (disruption and permanent removal of fat cells) occurs specifically at 25-28k mHz frequency. Other ultrasonic slimming treatments use 40k mHz frequency, which temporarily tones and tightens the skin, but does not remove fat. You can experience a much more dramatically visual result with 40k treatments, but the effects will wear off after a few weeks.
The best candidates for Ultrasonic fat removal are healthy men and women who are moderately overweight, wishing to lose between 5-100 pounds (calculate your ideal weight here, and your BMI here.) You are NOT a good candidate if you are pregnant or nursing, taking anticoagulants, if you have a pacemaker or metal implants or if you have keloids, recent surgeries or severe health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer or tumors, epilepsy, abnormally high or low blood pressure, hemophilia, thromboisis, phlebitis, turberculosis, current infection or infectious disease, immunodeficiencies or a compromised lymph system. If you have any doubt as to whether you are healthy enough to receive treatments, you should consult with your physician first.
You should notice a measurable difference immediately after your first treatment, with the most dramatic difference observable 72 hours after each treatment.
Results with Ultrasonic Cavitation will vary depending on how long the fat has existed, how dense it is, how hydrated you are, how well your lymph is circulating, etc. Immature, light and "fluffy" fat is much easier to eliminate than mature, dense fat, and thin lymph fluid will yield more rapid results than thick, viscous fluid. Statistically, you can expect up to 1-2" loss after the first treatment and up to 1/4" - 2" after each subsequent treatment. With Ultrasonic Slimming Treatments, you can expect up to 2-4" reduction after one treatment, and up to 6-10" reduction after a series of 3 treatments.
Ultrasonic Cavitation has a slight firming, toning and tightening effect on the skin and muscle tissue, so even if you have sagging skin resulting from earlier weight loss efforts, ultrasound cavitation will help. Of course, actual results will vary. Ultrasonic Slimming treatments are much more profoundly tightening and toning, but with temporary results.
You can safely receive Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments as often as every 3 days. Of course, the more frequently you receive treatments, the faster and more dramatic will be your permanent results. You can also safely receive Ultrasonic Slimming treatments every 3 days; however, since the results are temporary, you should have a series of treatments in a short period of time, followed by continual maintenance treatments every few weeks, in order to maintain your results
A single 30-minute treatment session can cover of an area the size of your belly, your inner/front or outer/back thighs, your buttocks or your back. Smaller areas, such as a double chin and upper arm flab, can be treated together. We recommended focusing at least 3 treatments to a single area before moving around to other areas, so obvious results may be achieved more quickly.
The answer to this question varies a great deal, as there are many factors to consider. For example, you need to consider how much fat you want to eliminate, how long the fat has been there, how dense the fat is, etc. Typically, a post-pregnancy patient wishing to eliminate a "muffin-top" leftover from childbirth may need 3-6 abdominal treatments, while a person who has been moderately obese for several years may need 2-3 times as many. With Ultrasonic Slimming treatments, your results with likely top out after 3-6 treatments per area, depending on the density of the fat.
There is absolutely no pain, and no recovery time after treatments! The treatment is warm, soothing and pleasant - much like a hot stone massage. You can receive a treatment during your lunch hour and then drive yourself back to work immediately afterward.
While side effects are rarely reported, they occur occasionally, and usually involve a slight redness or irritation of the skin that resolves within a few hours. There is also a potential to feel an increase in energy, since the body will naturally attempt to use some of the energy reserves released from the fat. Independent studies have shown a decrease in cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which seem to be further enhanced with the addition of dietary supplements. Here are some side effects that I have observed from working with Ultrasonic Cavitation in my spa:
- Increased thirst (which makes the requirement for increased water consumption much easier!)
- Slight headache beginning a few hours after treatment (presumably due to the release of toxins from the fat cells).
- Decreased appetite & decreased capacity for over-eating (presumably due to toning/tightening effect on the stomach)
- Fewer physical aches & pains (presumably due to weight loss resulting in less strain on the body)
- Improved moods and a renewed interest in wearing attractive clothes!

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a form of massage that stimulates the lymphatic system with gentle massaging strokes. Within us all there is a silent system working to keep us healthy- the lymph system. Without it our bodies would swell up like balloons, swamping our cells with stagnant fluid. The light rhythmical massage encourages the lymphatic system to eliminate metabolic waste products, excess fluid and bacteria.
The lymph systems impact is so far reaching that many dont even realize that minor aches and pains, low energy or susceptibility to colds and flu may be due to a sluggish lymph system and a compromised immune system.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a great ally in any massage therapists tool kit. By being able to address the lymph system directly, clients immune system function can be significantly increased. When we have a strong immune system, we are happy, balanced and whole. Lymphatic drainage massage can go where Deep Tissue and Swedish cannot- into swollen areas.
The Benefits of Lymph Drainage Massage:
- Circulation of fluids helps to reroute stagnant fluid in the skin
- Toxins are removed, making lymphatic drainage especially effective in tissue regeneration. Scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fracture, or surgical-incision sites, are improved. Many therapists also use LDT as part of detoxification and anti-aging regimens.
- Fats are evacuated through lymphatic vessels. These vessels are located in virtually every area of the body where fats may accumulate.
- The immune system is stimulated through increased lymph flow. This has been found to help with chronic or subacute inflammatory processes chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disease, bronchitis, sinusitis, amygdalitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, arthritis, acne and eczema.
- Stimulating the lymphatics (the fight or flight response) can be very helpful in dealing with stress, depression and sleeping disorders.
- Chronic pain is reduced as the drainage alleviates tissue-fluid stagnation and possibly inhibits pain receptors.
Stimulating the lymphatic system through manual lymphatic drainage will activate all of the above functions as well as encourage fluid circulation and cell regeneration. Both actions promote detoxification, facilitate healing and support the immune system.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage benefits are numerous and include:
- Clearing areas of congestion such as swollen ankles, puffy eyes and swollen legs
- Promotion of scar tissue healing, torn ligaments and sprains.
- Post-operative healing
- Swelling relief following plastic surgery
- Treatment of lymphedema and other conditions arising from venous insufficiency
- Improving chronic conditions such as sinusitis, arthritis, acne and other skin conditions
- Deep relaxation
- Healing After Surgery
According to MassageTherapy.com, lymph drainage massages can help with healing after surgery. This type of massage regenerates tissues to reduce scarring at surgical incision sites. Lymph drainage massages also reduce swelling and detoxify the body, according to the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators. The alliances website states that lymph drainage massages help speed regeneration of tissues and cells. The massages shouldnt be done right after surgery; instead, a person should wait at least 6 weeks before getting one, or until a doctor clears the patient for massage.
- Improved Immune System
The immune system is tied to the lymphatic system. In fact, if flow of lymphatic materials slows, the immune system weakens. MassageTherapy.com states that lymph drainage massages can improve the function of the immune system and increase the production of antibodies that fight off infections. Lymph drainage massages can also reduce inflammation in the body that causes diseases such as arthritis.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a very specific technique of manual body massage. At Perfect My Silhouette, we have on staff a Certified Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapist.
A lymphatic massage, lasts 30 to 90 minutes and consists of very gentle, rhythmic pressure, whispery soft finger strokes, or ultralight drumming about the same as one would use to stroke the face of a significant otherand stretching the skin in the direction of the lymph pathways toward the lymph nodes. The logic is that this will counteract the lymph systems tendency to become sluggish or even blocked by causes like spending too much time on the couch or eating unhealthy processed foods.
Lymphatic drainage is sometimes so relaxing that clients are lulled to sleep during treatments, and the fact that the massage doesnt necessitate any direct pressure explains why its appropriateand often prescribedfor reducing swelling following surgery or injury. Some basic light strokes include stationary circles, pump, and scoopno kneading or deep muscle work. This massage is actually a draining process intended to firm and tone skin and to improve health.
