My Velashape Cellulite Treatment Review
Before I had my Velashape cellulite treatment, I undertook the Velasmooth treatment which is an earlier version of Velashape…so now I am here to discuss everything Velashape and about my own personal treatment sessions.
There have been 3 models released over the years with the latest model being the Velashape 3 model which I will be focusing on. The other earlier models were the Velashape 1 and 2, but now with Velashape 3 you get INCREASED POWER as well as being MORE GENTLE, and generally MORE EFFECTIVE results.
So when you are unsure which is the best – just remember its the 3 🙂
If you want those fat cells to shrink – no other method will do it as effective as Velashape.
Five million people in the world can’t be wrong – that is the number of people that have had a Velashape treatment with a whopping 97% SATISFACTION RATE! Now that is impressive.
How Does Velashape Operate?
Velashape uses both Infrared and Bi-Polar Radio Frequencies and is a fantastic way to pump up that blood circulation. Velashape is also effective in the way it is able to really penetrate the skin deep below and cause the fat cells to HEAT UP and also SHRINK.
Any heat increase will cause metabolism to speed up and this will cause any excess fat to be broken down much quicker, especially fat related to your cellulite.
And the big selling point for Velashape is the way it is effectively used as a massager and the way it applies vacuum pressure to the skin. This massaging technique is wonderful in DRAINING your lymph system and REDUCING any blockages.
Cellulite thrives off a blocked lymphatic system so when this is broken up by the massaging of the device, your cellulite will be reduced in this manner.
This is also an effective method in getting rid of those toxins and the waste that builds up from a blocked lymphatic system.
So as you can see – Velashape fixes your cellulite in a VARIETY OF WAYS and not just limited to one method.
My Initial Consultation
Previously, I had undertaken a Velasmooth treatment where I was not really satisfied with the outcome. My cellulite had only diminished 15% where I expected to achieve better returns for the value.
So I was hoping my Velashape cellulite treatment will give me a better outcome.
When I went in with my consultation I was first examined to see what Stage my cellulite was at. This is crucial to know because you will get a DIFFERENT RESULT depending on the amount of cellulite you have.
I am currently at Stage 2 which basically means my cellulite shows up only when I am standing up, and not when I am lying down. I was told I had a good chance of seeing significant reduction but the results would not last if I also didn’t exercise and eat well.
If you have Stage 1 where your cellulite only shows when pinched then you will have a high probability for an IMMEDIATE result.
For Stage 3, where your cellulite appears in both standing and lying positions, you can still get a result but it will be minimal at best and in a month or so your dimpled skin will return. You really have to make drastic changes to your lifestyle and diet to improve on the Velashape cellulite treatment.
My Velashape Experience
Okay, after consulting, I went in for my first session at my local Medi Spa in Sydney. I laid down on the table and the specialist went to work. I hardly felt a thing… if anything I maybe felt a little pinching every now and then but that was it. I didn’t feel any heat or burning, just a nice relaxing massage.
It was all over in about 30 mins which is about right for Stage 2 cellulite. I was happy it didn’t take too long and fitting it in a lunch break is no problem.
If you have Stage 1 cellulite, it will take you 20 mins, and with Stage 3 it might take you up to 40 mins.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
I have heard reports where just after one or two treatments you can see results but that is not that common as Velashape is a gradual process.
You will more likely see an immediate result if you only have Stage 1 cellulite.
I continued one Velashape cellulite treatment a week for 6 weeks which I was told is ideal if you have Stage 2 cellulite. You may have to undergo up to 10 treatments if you have a lot of cellulite and it is at Stage 3.
What Is The Cost
Again, this totally depends on the stage of your cellulite and the number of areas that need to be treated. The higher the Stage and the more areas you have it will set you back about $400 a session. The minimal amount of cellulite you have will cost around $200.
For myself, it cost me around $300 with a total cost of around $1,800 in the end. This is about in line with other clinical treatments.
However you might find some package deals which might be cheaper. Just look around at some clinics to see if they offer any packages.
What Are The Results
On average you can expect a 30% REDUCTION of density in your layers of fat which means reduction in your cellulite. Your skin will also be MORE ENHANCED and feel MUCH SMOOTHER to touch. That’s what I was told in my consultation.
So did it work for me?….I am happy to report that YES – I did get some circumference reduction of about 2 cm off my thighs which was fantastic. There was also a decreased thickness to my layers of fat as projected.
In the end, I got the result I was looking for and am glad it was worth the investment.
The results lasted me a good month and if I wanted to keep up the reduction I was advised to have maintenance sessions every one to two months. Now if you can afford that, that’s great. By all means go for it.
