Velashape II

What is VELASHAPE II?

DermaCare announces the arrival of the Optimal Cellulite Reduction and Body Contouring Device. A four-in-one treatment, Velashape™ II  is the first and only non-surgical FDA-cleared medical device for the Body Reshaping market using Circumferential Reduction. Velashape™ is also the first FDA class II cleared platform for Cellulite Treatment.

How does it work?

As we age, our imperfections turn into multi-layered problems. Velashape II™ with its combination of infrared and conducted RF (radio frequency) energies precisely heats the dermal and the hypodermal tissue within the target treatment area and reduces the size of the actual fat cells in the treated area. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery.

This combination of Radio frequency and infra-red light (elks™), aids in new collagen remodelling to tighten sagging and lax skin. Lymphatic drainage is also increased. The VelaShape II™ ensures a reduction in the circumference of the treated area and smoother appearance of the skin’s surface which in turn reduces the appearance of cellulite.

How does cellulite treatment with Velashape II work? How does Velashape improve the appearance of cellulite?

Velashape II combines gentle light and radio frequency energies (the revolutionary elōs Technology) using mechanical rollers and vacuum suction for manipulation of the superficial fat tissue layer that contributes to cellulite. This targeted heat from the light and the elōs Technology increases metabolism of this fatty layer and thus shrinks the size of the fat cells.

Vacuum suction and specially designed rollers act on the blood vessels to increase circulation to the targeted area. This creates a massaging effect on the skin achieving a smoother, and less dimpled surface appearance.

The Velashape system also has a new applicator, which enables the treatment of smaller contoured areas such as the neck and arms.
