On the body, Velashape™ targets stubborn fatty pockets that do not respond to diet and exercise. It is also fantastic for the treatment of cellulite, uneven, sagging or dimpled skin. On the face, the smaller Velashape applicator can target a double chin and tone up the chin and jowls.  

As we age, our imperfections turn into multi-layered problems. Velashape™ with its combination of infrared and conducted RF (Radio Frequency) energies heat the dermal and the hypodermal (very deep) tissue at precise temperatures within the targeted area and reducing the size of fat cells. Treatment is done in combination with vacuum massage which has specially designed rollers. The mechanical massage smooths out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. 

This combination of Radiofrequency and infra-red light, aids in new collagen production to tighten sagging and lax skin on both the body and the face (double chin & jowl area). 

The sooner these procedures are started to improve collagen levels, the better the long term outcome.

On the body, Velashape treats:

  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Banana Roll (the fat roll below the buttocks)
  • Love handles
  • Bra bulges
  • Bat wings
  • Moobs (man boobs)
  • Muffin Top
  • Buttocks
  • Fat pockets around the knees
  • Cellulite
  • Sagging skin on the body

The latest treatments involve combinations that are more effective than ever and treatments should be started before the problem area deteriorates to a level which is more resistant to treatment. Velashape™ stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the major support structure for the skin and Velashape™ also reduces the fat content of the skin. The sooner one starts with preventative treatment, the better the body will age.

At Body Renewal numerous Velashape™ treatments have been administered to our patients with great results with virtually no side effects. If you are prone to bruising, slight redness of the skin post treatment may occur which resolves without any consequences.

Review -Charleen: Velasmooth Treatment!
Reviewed on 13 November 2015 by Liza-Mari Du Plessis

I went for a total of 8 Velasmooth treatments and after the first one I knew Charleen would be my preferred therapist for the rest of them. Always friendly, always professional and even patient enough for me to let my 2 year old tag along to 4 of my treatments. Overall I'm very happy; both with my amazing results and with Skin Renewal Willowbridge.

Review -Wouldn't go to anyone else!

I've been coming to Skin Renewal for about a year after a very dubious Oros-man experience at another spa. My colour is always perfect and even. I brought my sister, my mom and my cousin here just before my sister's wedding with full confidence of a stunning result!

Review -Highly impressed!
Reviewed on 13 October 2015 by S.V from Willowbridge

I received 8 x Velasmooth treatments and 2 x Carboxytherapy from Charleen Liebenberg and was highly impressed by her professionality, knowledge, kindness and proper way of treatment. She is an asset to the company and would refer more clients definitely to her. She could answer all my questions, made me feel at ease and most of all made it an extremely pleasant experience!!!
