It’s common for both men and women to have a tough time losing weight, especially when factors like age and genetics can work against our goals. Areas near the abdomen, love handles and thighs are common problem spots for unwanted fat, and the thighs in particular can be prone to developing unsightly cellulite. If you’re embarrassed by fatty bulges or cellulite, VelaShape™ III can help. VelaShape™ III is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure that slims areas of excess fat, improves skin tone and can minimize cellulite.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Francesco Campanile understands the importance of feeling good in your own skin, which is why he offers VelaShape™ III at his Denver medical spa. VelaShape™ III can achieve cellulite reduction while smoothing out your contours for younger-looking, smoother skin.
The greatest satisfaction comes from taking a customized approach to any cosmetic procedure. Our goal at Campanile Plastic Surgery is to work closely with each person to ensure an optimal outcome from both surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic treatments.
During your treatment, a rolling handpiece is passed over the target areas. A combination of infrared, vacuum and radiofrequency waves are transmitted through this device to gradually dissolve fat cells while improving skin texture.
Men and women commonly choose VelaShape™ III for a couple of reasons:
- Fat reduction: While the most common areas for treatment are the thighs, buttocks and abdomen, the VelaShape™ III system can be used on virtually any area of the body that needs slimming and smoothing, with a range of tip sizes that Dr. Campanile can use to customize your treatment.
- Cellulite reduction & skin tightening: VelaShape™ III reduces skin laxity and unwanted cellulite by heating fat cells while stimulating dermal collagen fibers to encourage a tighter and improved skin tone.
You may choose to have a series of short treatments spaced 2 weeks apart or a single treatment lasting 60 to 75 minutes, depending on availability and preference. Results develop gradually over the following 8 to 10 weeks.
If you’re looking for a more dramatic change than what VelaShape™ III can offer, Dr. Campanile may recommend that you consider the benefits of liposuction either as a stand-alone procedure or in addition to VelaShape™ III.
Some women choose to include VelaShape™ III in their mommy makeover to help them reclaim a more youthful figure as they move forward into their next stage of life.
