Until now, reducing the appearance of areas with cellulite was a challenge. One had to either go through invasive procedures, which are often painful and complicated, or invest time and money in questionable topical treatments or diets.
*VelaShape ΙΙΙ is the only non-surgical device that was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for circumferential reduction and cellulite reduction. The latest version of the device is more effective and more powerful. It allows the body to be significantly re-contoured in a few sessions and does not require anaesthesia, surgery and recovery time.
** This process is the only one to combine optical infrared and radiofrequency energies with tissue mobilisation, coupled with gentle suction. According to studies carried out by Dr. Tina Alster of Washington and 41 different centres in the US, the synergy of these three techniques makes the VelaShape ΙΙΙ device the most effective medical solution for treating cellulite today.
The treatment results may vary from person to person and are therefore not guaranteed.
Thus, they do not bind the members of the company, its staff, or even any third party in any way.
Frequently asked questions
Q: What are the indications? For whom is it intended?
A: For men and women suffering from cellulite regardless of its visibility and depth. The device is suitable for all types of skin and cellulite.
Patients with little or no positive response to endermology/lipomassage.
Women who want to re-contour their body after pregnancy.
Patients who want to re-contour their body non-invasively.
The process is also suitable for patients who have undergone weight loss.
All areas usually affected by cellulite can be treated: belly, thighs, arms, saddlebags, hips, etc.
Patients with mild or moderate skin slackening.
The radiofrequency delivered in the deep layers of the skin helps to firm it by thickening and contracting the collagen.
Q: What happens during the procedure?
A: The practitioner first selects the area(s) to be treated.
He then places the device on the skin; the patient feels a gentle suction followed by moderate heat that may cause more tingling in some areas.
The duration of the session varies between 30 and 60 min.
No anaesthesia or medication is required before and after the procedure except for some creams that may be recommended later.
Q: Can the patient resume normal activities after the procedure?
A: Yes. As the procedure is totally non-invasive, the patient can resume his or her normal activities immediately. Redness, slight haematoma, tingling or numbness may occur in some patients, but these phenomena are temporary.
Q: What are the results? Are they permanent?
A: VelaShape IIΙ is an effective “cellulite treatment” for which there is no need to plan for recovery time. The results are gradual but visible from the first few sessions and the regression of the volume of the adipocytes can help lose up to several centimetres in some cases.
During the Velashape ΙΙΙ procedure for circumferential reduction, the treated fat cells are thus significantly reduced. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight by monitoring the diet and exercising, the long-term result should remain stable.
For cellulite and sagging skin, we recommend Velashape maintenance sessions. The number of sessions will depend each individual case, the goal being to ensure that the result is sustainable.

Q: How does the Velashape ΙΙΙ differ from the earlier Ι and ΙΙ versions?
A: Only the latest version recently received the approval of the FDA (USA) for circumferential reduction and cellulite reduction.
This new version far exceeds the previous ones, is much more effective (5 times), and therefore we believe that only health professionals rigorously trained in the technique can use it optimally and safely.
Unlike previous versions that we could find in beauty salons or similar centres.
Q: Can the Velashape ΙΙΙ be combined with other methods such as endermology, Coolsculpting or acoustic waves?
A: It is possible to transfer or complement the results of Velashape ΙΙΙ with some endermology, acoustic wave and/or coolsculpting sessions. During the consultation, the specialist practitioner will direct you to the most appropriate procedure for your case.
