Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring with VelaShape III can reduce unwanted fat and improve the appearance of cellulite around your stomach, hips, and thighs. VelaShape III is a state-of-the-art system that harnesses the power of several advanced technologies to eliminate fat deposits and smooth out skin texture.

How does body contouring with VelaShape III work?

VelaShape III is an innovative aesthetics platform that uses radiofrequency energy and infrared light to heat the deep layers of your skin, targeting fat cells and surrounding connective tissue. The heat breaks down fat cells and tissue adhesions that create the pocketed appearance of cellulite. Gentle vacuum suction supports the process by lifting the upper layers of your skin, allowing the energy to penetrate beneath the upper layers to reach deeper fat deposits and adhesions.

What are the benefits of body contouring with VelaShape III?

Body contouring with VelaShape III offers the following benefits over more invasive procedures, such as liposuction:

  • Affordability
  • Zero downtime
  • No pain or discomfort

Body contouring treatments usually take less than an hour to complete and deliver impressive, lasting results with comfort and convenience. 

Does body contouring hurt?

Most people find body contouring with VelaShape to be comfortable and many patients actually find the treatment relaxing, similar to a hot stone massage. 

Am I a candidate for body contouring?

If you’re in good overall health and you have areas of cellulite or stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, it’s likely that you’re a candidate for body contouring. VelaShape III can be used on adults of all ages and skin types.

Body contouring isn’t a weight-loss procedure, so you’ll need to be at a stable weight before you consider the treatment. If you’d like to lose weight, Ferguson Family Medicine offers medically supervised programs to help you lose weight and maintain your results.

Typically, a series of at least three treatments are needed for optimal results. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, your body contouring results will be permanent.
