Many of us are wanting to tone and shape parts of our body, drop a dress/pant size or reduce the size of those ‘love handles’. It can be difficult to improve certain areas even when eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. With our busy lives, it's near on impossible trying to fit in the day-to-day stuff, let alone up to six weeks of recovery time, which is what's required for liposuction.
Non surgical liposuction with the Velashape III is a new solution to reducing your body’s circumference and localised fat reduction. Importantly, the Velashape III has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) giving you peace of mind that it really does work.
Comparing Liposuction and Non Surgical Liposuction
Overview of Liposuction
While liposuction is the most effective method to permanently remove unwanted areas of excess fat, it is an aggressive and invasive surgery that carries risk of complications and side effects. Liposuction requires sedation or localised anaesthesia and requires several weeks of recovery time and wearing of compression garments for up to 6 weeks. Liposuction is also costly, ranging from around $4000 for one treated area to over $10,000 for more than three treated areas.
Some patients are unable to undergo liposuction surgery for medical reasons and others may not have enough fat to justify invasive surgery.
Overview of Non-Surgical Liposuction: Velashape III
By comparison, non-surgical liposuction using the Velashape III is painless, is extremely low risk and has no down time. You can return to work or your normal routine immediately after your treatment.
A program of 4 treatments spaced two weeks apart is recommended for optimal cellulite reduction, skin tightening and body contouring. An option for a single, longer treatment (VelaOnce) for body contouring may be more convenient for busy people or for those preparing for a special event, such as a wedding or a holiday. Costs of Velashape III treatment are considerably lower than liposuction surgery (between $800 and $3000 depending on the size and number of areas).
After A Treatment With Velashape III
Moisturising lotion is applied after treatment and patients can go back to their usual activities. You will be advised to drink lots of water and you might notice that you need to go to the toilet more than usual for the next couple of days as the excess fluid is eliminated from your body. Light exercise like walking after treatment is recommended to maximise the results.
It is a good idea to follow a healthy diet low in fat for a few days after your treatment to allow all the released fat to be used as an energy source.
