How Many VelaShape III Treatments Are Needed For Cellulite Reduction?

By: Beauty Coordinators


If you’re like most people with cellulite, these lumpy, bumpy areas can be a constant source of embarrassment and frustration. What’s worse, diet and exercise often do little to improve the appearance of visible cellulite, leaving many patients feeling hopeless and desperate. Fortunately, modern medicine and technology make it more possible and convenient than before to reduce visible cellulite and give you smoother, firmer skin you can feel comfortable and confident in. At Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia and Radnor, PA, our expert team of providers is proud to offer nonsurgical cellulite reduction and body contouring with the VelaShape III system. Keep reading for a closer look at how VelaShape III works, how many treatments you may need, and how long your smooth new shape may last.

Why can’t I get rid of my cellulite?

Cellulite can be one of the most stubborn cosmetic flaws to treat on your own. In fact, losing weight actually makes cellulite more apparent in some individuals. The technical cause of cellulite is a bulging of fat cells between tight, connective fibers between the muscle and skin, which leads to a dimpled texture on the skin’s surface. While diet and exercise are certainly beneficial for your overall health and may subtly improve the appearance of cellulite in some patients, professional cellulite reduction treatments are, without a doubt, the most effective and reliable options.

How can I get rid of cellulite without surgery?

Nonsurgical cellulite reduction and body contouring at Body+Beauty Lab is performed using the advanced VelaShape III system. This technology combines radiofrequency (RF) energy, heat, suction, massage, and other techniques into a single system to effectively reduce the ripples and dimples associated with cellulite. Most often, VelaShape III cellulite reduction is used in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

How many sessions are included in a full round of VelaShape III?

Each VelaShape III treatment round will be tailored to the individual needs and goals of the patient. While many patients report a visible reduction in their cellulite after just a single treatment session, most patients require a round of 3 – 6 treatments to achieve their desired outcome. These treatments are spaced out at about 1 – 2 week intervals, meaning a full round of VelaShape III can take up to 1 – 3 months to complete. At the conclusion of treatment, patients may wish to have additional VelaShape III sessions to further boost their results.

How long does VelaShape III last?

Like most cellulite reduction treatments, VelaShape III does not produce permanent results. With a healthy lifestyle, a stable weight, and regular maintenance treatments, patients can still enjoy smoother skin that lasts. On average, patients undergo VelaShape III treatments about 1 – 2 times a year to maintain a consistent look.
