How Does VelaShape Tighten Loose Skin?

By: Beauty Coordinators


Contrary to popular belief, cellulite can affect adults of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Though it doesn’t present any medical concerns, it creates a dimpled, lumpy, unsightly appearance that many women and men wish to transform. If you find yourself covering your skin or feeling embarrassed by cellulite on your body, VelaShape® III at Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA may be an ideal cellulite reduction treatment for you. VelaShape is a state-of-the-art nonsurgical body contouring procedure designed to tighten loose skin and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Find out how this option is helping men and women feel more confident in their bodies.

What causes cellulite and loose skin?

While the exact cause of cellulite is relatively unknown, it occurs when fat cells aggregate and push through the fibrous cords of connective tissue that attach the muscles to the skin. This results in a dimpled, uneven appearance on certain areas of the body, such as the upper thighs, stomach, hips, and buttocks, that many find embarrassing or unattractive. Several factors can contribute to the development of cellulite and loose skin in Philadelphia, PA patients, including:

  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Weight fluctuations
  • The aging process
  • An inactive lifestyle
  • Poor dietary habits
  • Decreased collagen and elastin production

Even though cellulite and loose skin are common concerns, there’s not much you can do on your own to prevent or minimize their appearance.

What is VelaShape III?

At Body+Beauty Lab, our highly trained aestheticians use VelaShape III technology to temporarily tighten loose skin and diminish the appearance of cellulite in men and women. This nonsurgical body contouring system can be used on all skin types and works to safely disperse pockets of fat in problem areas while recontouring and tightening the skin. The result is a slimmer profile, firmer skin, and more toned shape for patients seeking cellulite reduction treatment in Philadelphia, PA.

How does VelaShape Work?

Performed in one of our luxurious treatment rooms, VelaShape works through radiofrequency (RF) technology and infrared light to smooth cellulite beneath the skin. Our team will pass the VelaShape handpiece repeatedly over the treatment area, which produces gentle heat while suctioning and deeply massaging the tissue. These actions work together to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the body, which helps to smooth bumpy cellulite and tighten loose skin. VelaShape treatment sessions generally take less than one hour to complete and typically carry no downtime. Our aesthetic team may recommend a series of 4 – 6 treatments initially to achieve optimal results. Periodic sessions can then be scheduled to help maintain your tighter, firmer skin.
