- Using a body scrub before treatment is helpful.
- Skin must be completely clean and free of all cosmetic products such as body oils, moisturising creams or lotions, shaving products and fake tan.
- Sensitivity varies, but most clients describe the treatment as pleasurable with only a deep heating sensation, like that of a warm deep tissue massage.
- After treatment, the sensation of under-skin warmth and a feeling of tightness may last for some hours and is sometimes accompanied by mild redness.
- Benefits last longest if a healthy lifestyle and body weight are maintained, with regular exercise and stretching plus daily moisturisation to keep the skin elastic.

The VelaShape III elōs Plus cellulite treatment
80% of all women over the age of 20 will get cellulite at some time have cellulite, regardless of size or shape. Cellulite occurs when fat cells in the deepest layer of skin become over-inflated from an increase in fat storage. The fat cells protrude up through the tissue causing dimpling or a “cottage cheese” appearance. Syneron’s VelaShape III device is FDA cleared for cellulite reduction.

How does VelaShape III work?
VelaShape IIIuses elōs Plus technology, the only non-invasive body shaping treatment to combine four different technologies, Bi-Polar Radio-Frequency (RF) and Infra-Red (IR) light energy, and two types of tissue massage - mechanical and vacuum.
The unique mix accelerates the use of stored fat, shrinks existing fat cells, and also increases lymphatic drainage. This is achieved partly by the precisely targeted and controlled heating of dermal and hypodermal tissue (using both IR and RF energy), while simultaneous massages to smooth out the skin in order to optimise their delivery.
Getting the VelaShape treatmentA schedule of four weekly treatments is usually all that is required.
Maximum benefits are most apparent four weeks after the final session. Many clients see visible results after two sessions, and some measure of firming and tightening is often noticed after one.
