Frequently Asked Questions

VelaShape II Treatments are available in the Western Cape at Cape Town clinics Cape Quarter, Claremont, Constantia and Stellenbosch branches and in Johannesburg at the Illovo, Parkhurst, Bedfordview and Fourways clinics.

On the body, Velashape™ targets stubborn fatty pockets that do not respond to diet and exercise. It is also fantastic for the treatment of cellulite, uneven, sagging or dimpled skin. On the face, the smaller Velashape applicator can target a double chin and tone up the chin and jowls.  

As we age, our imperfections turn into multi-layered problems. Velashape™ with its combination of infrared and conducted RF (Radio Frequency) energies heat the dermal and the hypodermal (very deep) tissue at precise temperatures within the targeted area and reducing the size of fat cells. Treatment is done in combination with vacuum massage which has specially designed rollers. The mechanical massage smooths out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. 

This combination of Radiofrequency and infra-red light, aids in new collagen production to tighten sagging and lax skin on both the body and the face (double chin & jowl area).

Velashape can be used effectively in combination with Titan, Photo Genesis, Limelight, Carboxytherapy, ND: Yag Skin Tightening, Cryolipo Fat Freezing, injectable Mesotherapy and Laser Genesis.  

Separately each treatment offers a powerful solution, but together the synergy is unbeatable, as are the results.

Other advantages of Velashape

  • Velashape is safe for all skin types. 
  • It can be used in combination with other treatment modalities
  • Treatments can be tailored to individual needs
  • They can be adapted as long-term maintenance treatments to prolong and maintain treatment results 
  • There is no downtime after a Velashape treatment, and one can return to work and regular activity immediately  

Velashape can also be used as a programme to assist patients who are on dramatic weight loss programmes. An ideal example is our very own medical weight loss solution - the RID diet. In instances where there is dramatic weight loss, the skin and body may need some assistance. Velashape helps to recontour and assist the body in adjusting to its new shape.
