Excess weight around the stomach area is not only a health issue, but it can also make shopping for clothes challenging and has an impact on self-esteem. Are you looking for an effective but non-invasive body-contouring option? Liposuction is known for its effectiveness for body-contouring, however it’s expensive, requires anaesthetic and significant recovery time. Detail Smoother Skin Clinic specialise in affordable, safe and effective non-surgical liposuction Sydney.
But how do you know that it actually works? In this article we discuss a White Paper by Ruthie Amir, MD that presents the data and results from a clinical trial on the VelaShape III.
The White Paper, entitled “Clinical Evaluation on the Efficacy and Safety of the VelaShape III Device for Abdominal Circumferential Reduction Treatments” defines the objective as “The evaluation of the safety, efficacy and patient tolerability of the VelaShape III device, for the noninvasive treatment of excess fat in the abdominal region manifested by circumferential reduction.”
During the trial, patients received a treatment with the VelaShape III on the abdomen which was followed-up at 4,7 and 10 weeks following the initial treatment. Abdomen circumference was measured at each session and at the end of the trial, clinical photographs were taken to track progress and patient safety was assessed.
The trial produced positive results. “Significant circumference reductions in the abdominal area were observed already at the 4-week follow-up, and remained significant throughout the assessment period. Moreover, the average circumference reductions increased throughout the course of the study, and were 0.8±2.3 cm, 1.8±2.0 cm and 2.6±1.0 cm, at 4, 7 and 10 weeks, respectively. No adverse events were seen throughout the study period.
Conclusion: The clinical data presented here supports both the safety and efficacy of the VelaShape III system for the treatment indication of temporary reduction in circumference of the abdomen.”
Results are long lasting when treatment is followed with a healthy lifestyle and maintenance treatments every 6 to 18 months.
VelaShape III Explained
The VelaShape is an innovative device that combines bi-polar radio frequency (RF), intense infrared light (IR) and mechanical massage and suction for the safe and effective body contouring and treatment of cellulite. This 4-pronged system stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for noticeable and long-term results.
A program of 4 treatments spaced two weeks apart is recommended for optimal body contouring, cellulite reduction and skin tightening. An option for a single treatment (VelaOnce) for body contouring may be more convenient for busy people or for those preparing for a special event.
