The feeling you get when you hit your weight or size goals is amazing. This feeling however may be overshadowed if the look and texture of your skin is somewhat lax. People who have lost a significant amount of weight, or who have had fat "freezing" treatment, such as CoolSculpting, may be left with excess or loose skin that won’t shrink back and pockets of fat that are difficult to shift. Before you consider surgery, visit Detail Smoother Skin Clinic for a free consultation so they can discuss with you the non-surgical treatment option that targets localised areas of fat, improves cellulite and tightens skin.
In this article, we explain the VelaShape III for skin tightening and volume reduction, how it works and what to expect.
Skin Tightening With VelaShape
Collagen and elastin are the “scaffolding” for our skin. As we age, our body’s natural production of collagen and elastin decreases. With the latest technology, it’s possible to stimulate our skin to produce more collagen and elastin for tighter, smoother looking skin.
The VelaShape combines massage and suction with bi-polar radio frequency and intense infrared light. These four systems together stimulate the production of collagen and elastin for noticeable and long-term results. The safety and effectiveness of the VelaShape has been proven in numerous clinical trials and has been cleared by the US Food & Drug Administration. Additionally, more than 3.5 million independent treatments have been performed globally.
Clinical trials with the VelaShape have shown:
- Noticeable improvement in skin firmness and texture over the treated areas
- Reduction in the appearance of cellulite
- Circumference reduction of up to 3cm

What You Can Expect
You can see results of tighter looking skin in just 1-3 sessions however a program of 4 treatments spaced two weeks apart is recommended for optimal skin tightening, cellulite reduction and body contouring.
Treatments are comfortable and last 30-40 minutes depending on the size and number of areas to be treated. It feels like a really firm, warm massage and there’s no downtime so you can go back to your normal daily routine straight afterward. A healthy diet and some light exercise following treatment will help to optimise results.

If you are considering surgical options for the treatment of sagging skin, try our non-surgical, FDA approved VelaShape first. It has the added bonuses of cellulite treatment and body contouring and won’t set you back the cost or recovery time of surgery.
