It is not intended for weight loss but for body contouring and tightening. The ideal patient is overweight and has some cellulite. VelaShape III is FDA approved and safe for all skin types and colors. It uses high-powered, bi-polar radio frequency, pulsed vacuum, and infrared energy, and massage rollers to improve skin texture and reduce volume. These four different technologies heat and massage the body’s fat layer, shrink fat cells and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This allows for deep and quick heat permeation and increased circulation, lymphatic drainage and collagen deposition in the treated area.

VelaShape III is ideal for:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Arms



Vela Shape-III at DuPont Aesthetics for Laser Aesthetics and Body Contouring is a fast and comfortable treatment with no downtime. Results may be seen as early as 2 weeks with best results seen after 10 weeks. Clinical results have shown that there is an average fat loss of one inch around the stomach. Periodic maintenance treatments are recommended. Vela Shape-III can improve the appearance of skin tone and overall skin structure.

What Should I Expect During Treatment?

A lotion is applied to the treatment area and an appropriate handpiece is selected to glide across your skin. A pulsed vacuum pulls tissue closer to the energy source and the infrared light heats the fat cells. The combined technology increases fat metabolism, resulting in smoother skin and circumference reduction. It feels like a warm, deep tissue massage. The treatment site may feel warm or look pink for a few hours after the procedure. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and exercising before and after treatments gives the best results.
