VelaShape III for Body Contouring and Cellulite Reduction

The VelaShape uses the most advanced technology to treat a vast array of skin conditions.

• Temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite

• Temporary reduction of circumferences

• Temporary improvement in the local blood circulation

• Relief of minor muscle spasms, aches and pain

What is Velashape®?

VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. VelaShape® enables you to successfully achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typically 3 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape® provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.

The Technology

VelaShape® technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

VelaShape® is not a weight loss treatment. VelaShape® uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape® patient is someone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2. Ask your doctor to see if you're a candidate for VelaShape® treatments

Zimmer Zwave for Cellulite Treatment

Dr. Charles Hunt, II and the team at Alabama Vein & Restorative Medspa are proud to offer the Zimmer Zwave, a revolutionary treatment that transmits powerful sound waves onto and through the skin. This energy is delivered via an electromagnetic applicator, then spreads out radially.

This radial energy enhances the tone, texture and appearance of the cellulite. The body parts most prone to cellulite are buttocks, thighs, abdomen, and arms.

Cellulite Factoids

  • Cellulite is defined as a condition in which skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumply appearance
  • UV rays can worsen the appearance of cellulite
  • Nearly 90% of women and 10% of men will develop areas of cellulite. This includes people who are otherwise slim and fit
  • Cellulite usually begins to appear between the ages of 25 and 35 as estrogen begins to decrease
  • Exercise does not get rid of cellulite. One can reduce fat, but this does not effect the herniated fibers that cause cellulite
  • Losing weight doesn't make cellulite disappear
  • Drug store creams have not been shown to have significant effect to reduce the appearance of cellulite

Is the Zwave treatment painful?

-No, quite the contrary. Many patients comment that the treatment feels similar to a relaxing massage

How many treatments will I need?

-Visible changes may be seen as soon as during your second week of treatment. Your skin will get smoother and noticeably firmer. Recommended treatment is a minimum of 10 sessions within a 3-4 week period. The number of treatments you need may depend on the severity of your cellulite

How long will the effects of my cellulite treatment last?

-Reports have been made that the effects have lasted a year or more

What are the advantages of the Zimmer cellulite treatment?

-It is an effective treatment for cellulite that is gentle, quick, and non-invasive with no down time for the patient
