VelaShape® is a non-invasive treatment for body contouring, and it can also be used to reduce cellulite. It is not a weight loss treatment, however; in fact, the ideal client will be at or very close to their healthy body weight. VelaShape® can be used on many parts of the body.
How Does it Work?
VelaShape® combines several technologies: suction, infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energy. The suction, which is accompanied by rollers, draws the target area closer to the infrared and radiofrequency energy. The rollers massage the area while the infrared and radiofrequency energy melt the fat cells that the body’s excretory system then expels. VelaShape® also stimulates the collagen fibers, so they contract and pull the skin tighter. VelaShape®, thus, reduces both cellulite and the circumference of the treatment site. The client is slimmer and their skin is tauter without the dimpling effect of cellulite.
What is the Procedure Like?
VelaShape® is an outpatient treatment, and patients report that it feels like a warm deep tissue massage. It does not involve any incisions, needles or anesthesia. Most clients undergo a series of treatment sessions at our office to get the best results. After that, they may need touch-ups every so often for ongoing benefits.

What is Endermologie?
Endermologie is another cellulite reduction therapy that Persona Medical Spa offers. It was originally developed in France in the 1980s to reduce scar tissue and was approved by the FDA. It uses wholly mechanical means to manipulate tissues, and it relies on a principle called “mechano-stimulation.” Massaging or otherwise manipulating the skin sends signals to cells deeper within the body that result in collagen production. Endermologie also breaks up the accumulations of fat cells and water that cause cellulite to form.
