Body shaping and firming

VelaShape is an aesthetic treatment suitable for body shaping and firming which combines infrared light, radio frequency, vacuum and mechanical rollers. Popular among celebrities, it’s used for maintaining smooth, contoured legs and even as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. 8th Sense has both VelaShapes: VelaShape2 and VelaShape3 which is an Award-winning device. (AMEC, Paris, 2015.)

How does VelaShape2 work?

  • A unique combination of infrared light and radiofrequency precisely target fatty tissue, diminishing its volume and appearance. Cellulite pockets are kept tight through increased production of new collagen. With these two modalities, we achieve smoother, tighter, thinner legs and circumference reduction of the thighs.*
  • The vacuum evens out the skin to reveal its smoother layers and eliminates trapped extracellular fluids and toxins, causing cellulite areas to disappear.*

 What can I expect during and after the treatment?

    • VelaShape is designed to accommodate individual’s sensitivity and comfort level
    • The treatment  feels like a warm, deep tissue massage
    • It is normal to experience warm sensation in the treated area for a few hours post-treatment
    • Gradual improvement can be seen after every session *
    • Full results in circumference reduction will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment session *
    • Treatments are done once a week.and we usually recommend six treatments

We have been using VelaShape2 in our signature cellulite treatment for more than 12 years as an alternative to liposuction for unwanted cellulite, fatty deposits, and post-pregnancy shaping.

VelaShape3- Cellulite, circumferential reduction, firming and fat removal 

VelaShape3 is an FDA approved device for Cellulite, non-surgical body contouring and fat reduction that uses advanced software for greater reliability in results, improved comfort, and greater effectiveness. *

It still uses Elōs technology, radio frequency, infrared light, mechanical rollers and vacuum system, but in a way that minimizes technique sensitivity and enhances precision. New “guided mode” software and upgraded system design reduces operator dependency and improves consistency in results.

VelaShape3 is indicated for the following treatments:

  •        Cellulite reduction
  •        Body contouring
  •        Skin tightening
  •        Post- pregnancy firming
  •        Pre and post – Liposuction
  •        Firming and fat removal in smaller areas such as neck, arms, and face

Cellulite, which is one of the biggest concerns for women, has been labeled as a pretty difficult condition to treat. VelaShape 3 uses a designated hand piece, sophisticated software, and standardized treatment guidance to improve a reduction in Cellulite.

This protocol is designed slightly differently from Velashape2 and needs to be done in 4 sessions scheduled every two weeks.

Non- surgical body contouring and fat reduction techniques have become popular modern era treatments due to particular lifestyle challenges that are creating these stubborn conditions. VelaShape3 uses designated protocols to contour and slim down the body (abdominal fat, “love handles” and saddlebags”) with no downtime and little or no discomfort. *


Firming and fat reduction from arms, face, and neck. VelaShape3 delivers high-energy radio frequency with the convenience of a smaller headpiece accurately, hence being able to treat smaller areas like arms, face, and neck Recent study demonstrated a sustainable reduction in circumference and improvement in skin texture and tone of arms following treatment with Velashape. *

Why will you love VelaShape3?

  • Results  are clinically proven and  supported by research *
  • Four  treatment sessions, two weeks apart – suitable even for the person with limited time
  • This is a no down time procedure with improved comfort *
  • Can be done on any skin type
