What is Velashape ™?
Body Renewal announces the arrival of the Velashape™ by Syneron, the next generation of the VelaSmooth ™ device.

How does Velashape ™ work?
As one ages, especially if there has been yo-yo dieting our imperfections turn into multi-layered problems .Velashape with its combination of infrared and conducted RF energies precisely heats the dermal and the hypodermal tissue within the target treatment area and reduces the size of the actual fat cells in the treated area. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. This combination of Radio frequency and infra red light (el?s™), aids in new collagen remodeling to tighten sagging and lax skin. Lymphatic drainage is also increased. The procedure is ideal for someone in their 20s to 50s who is ready to augment their exercise regimen with a non-invasive procedure that yields noticeable results.
Velashape is also perfect for a post pregnancy or post liposuction body. The Velashape treatments smooth out the irregular fatty deposits and tighten sagging skin.

What is resistant fat?
Just about everyone is familiar with fat pockets that you cannot get rid of. No matter how much you exercise, eat healthily and maintain your body at a healthy weight, localized fatty pockets fat pockets will continue to be problematic.
A possible explanation behind this is that some fat cells have a predominance of beta receptors and others have a dominance of alpha receptors. Beta receptors are very receptive to the presence of adrenaline which is produced by exercise. Fat cell breakdown is triggered when adrenaline attaches to the beta receptors. Fatty areas with a predominance of beta receptors respond to exercise and a person on a regular exercise program will see noticeable results.
The opposite applies to fatty areas with a predominance of alpha receptors. When adrenaline attaches to alpha receptors, fat breakdown slows down and the fat tends to accumulate more. This explains why some people will experience problems in areas that just won't respond to a consistent and regular exercise. These problem areas are typically around the hips, tummy and upper thighs, leading to love
Can Velashape ™ be combined with other treatments?
Body Renewal is excited to offer the next step in multi-modality therapy in treating cellulite and resistant fat.. We call it the Bottom Line. Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it's not sufficient. Cellulite and resistant fat has different forms and grades and thus success needs a combination of treatments that include lymphatic drainage, reduction of fat cells, stretching of connective tissue and collagen stimulation. Velashape, a 4 in 1 treatment, provides all of the above.
At Body Renewal VelaShape can also be combined with Lipodissolve, Lipomassage and Carboxytherapy treatments for best body sculpting results.
At Body Renewal, with a combination of treatments, in 3 to 6 months we can take a good body and turn it into a Perfect body: slim, firm, smooth and sculpted
How many Velashape ™ treatments are needed?
A series of 6 to 8 treatments every week are needed to improve resistant fat and cellulite. Maintaining a beautiful body isn't a sprint - it's a marathon .Rather than waiting until their problems are bothersome again, patients must appreciate that a maintenance treatment with Velashape every 2 months goes a long way to keep the desired results.
