As a National Advisory Expert for the VelaSHAPE III, Dr. Wright provides her expertise to train other physicians and medical professionals; and her staff has the benefit of her daily on-site supervision to establish the most effective protocol for each patient. This no-downtime procedure is so popular at Skin MD and Beyond in Plano Texas, that we have two machines to keep up with the demand!
The Unique Difference of the VelaSHAPE III at Skin MD and Beyond.
VelaSHAPE III is the first platform for cellulite reduction treatment as a system featuring the revolutionary elōs™ technology that enables you to achieve a toned, contoured, and well-shaped body without surgery or exercise!
It treats both the deeper tissues and the upper layers of the skin resulting in a measurable reduction in fat layers, circumference and the appearance of cellulite in as few as six treatment sessions, making it one of our most popular choices for our patients in Texas when they’re looking for an affordable, safe and effective cellulite reduction system.
What are the benefits of VelaSHAPE III?
VelaSHAPE® III is FDA-cleared for a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite and temporary reduction of the thigh and abdominal circumference. Who couldn’t use a little help with both of those perpetual problems? VelaSHAPE® enables our patients to successfully achieve a toned, contoured, and well-shaped body in just three treatment sessions. There isn’t any downtime or pain.
In 2004, Dr. Wright pioneered the introduction of the first generation VelaSHAPE technology to the Dallas Metroplex, as the first device to be FDA approved to treat cellulite. Since that time it has continued to improve in its results and versatility and now it treats many aspects of Body Contouring. With over 35 million treatments worldwide, the VelaSHAPE III was introduced to the USA in October 2013 and it can now add to its bragging rights – the FDA approval for circumferential abdominal reduction… that means you can now “Say GoodBye to Inches”!
How does VelaSHAPE III work?
The procedure involves a three-pronged approach, utilizing bipolar radiofrequency energy, infrared light energy, and vacuum technology. The combination causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and underlying collagen fibers. This heating, combined with vacuum pressure, stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin (the two proteins responsible for skin support). The result is a reduction in skin laxity and body volume and improved skin structure and texture.
What can you expect from a VelaSHAPE treatment?
Most of Dr. Wright’s patients equate a VelaSHAPE® treatment to the feeling of having a deep tissue massage. This procedure involves slight pulling of the skin, which is a result of a pulsed vacuum device that prepares the skin and positions it appropriately for treatment. Patients also feel a warm sensation from the radiofrequency and light energy. Overall, nothing in the treatment will make you feel uncomfortable. A VelaSHAPE® session usually takes 20 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
The VelaSHAPE III Experience, in Plano Texas
Recommended treatments – VelaSMOOTH
VelaSMOOTH is a revolutionary treatment proven to reduce and even eliminate cellulite. It is the only truly effective non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that smoothes out cellulite while tightening your skin and contouring your body. It works on all skin types and requires no downtime, no diet, and no change to your normal activities.
An advanced VelaSMOOTH® body contouring treatment is performed exclusively at our office. When interviewed by Channel 5 News Health Report, Dr. Wright explained that during her personal consultation with you, she will create your own unique treatment protocol to achieve the best results. This treatment is best for mild-severe cellulite with minimal need for body contouring. VelaSMOOTH will offer the best reduction in cellulite. As well, patients will notice a moderate improvement in skin tightening and mild-moderate improvement in size.
How does VelaSMOOTH work?
VelaSMOOTH® is a noninvasive, nonsurgical body contouring and cellulite reduction treatment. VelaSMOOTH® uses vacuum technology combined with rollers on the handpiece. This allows us to treat the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. This delivery system allows the same combination of energy used in VelaSHAPE® — bi-polar radiofrequency, infrared light, and vacuum technology — to reach the deepest layers of the dermis. Because the energy is delivered in a message form, it can effectively penetrate the epidermis and enter the dermis where it has access to the fat cells at the bottom of the layer.
VelaSMOOTH® directs the RF and infrared energy into the fat cells at the base of the dermis layer. Heat and light-speed metabolism of the cells and this shrinks their size.
What is VelaSMOOTH treatment?
As with VelaSHAPE®, patients equate the sensation of VelaSMOOTH® to that of a deep tissue massage combined with heat. There is only minimal discomfort as the VelaSMOOTH® handpiece is rolled across the treatment areas. Topical anesthesia isn’t necessary. Many patients feel the combination of massage and heat with the energy application has the side benefit of reducing muscle aches and pain.
Is there any recovery necessary after VelaSMOOTH?
As with VelaSHAPE®, these are completely noninvasive, easy to take treatments. You may have some slight redness at the treatment sites, but this passes within a day. You can immediately get back to your regular life after your session with Dr. Wright.
When can I expect to see my results from VelaSHAPE and Vela SMOOTH?
While a tightening and smoothing sensation on the skin can be noticed immediately, the shrinking of the fat cells takes time. Over the course of your treatments, you will notice a reduction in both circumferences and in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas. To achieve maximum results, four to six weekly sessions are recommended. After that, occasional touch-ups are recommended every few months.
