Body Contouring Q & A

How does VelaShape® work?

VelaShape is a noninvasive body contouring treatment designed to reduce areas of persistent fat and diminish the appearance of cellulite. The platform uses a state-of-the-art handheld device to deliver therapeutic levels of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to targeted fat cells.

VelaShape combines this efficient deep-heating with gentle vacuum suction to disrupt fat cell function while stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen and elastin. Besides giving you a more contoured shape, the treatment also helps improve skin structure and texture.

VelaShape can be used to address areas of persistent fat and cellulite beneath your chin and on your arms, thighs, buttocks, and midsection.

What are the benefits of Venus Legacy™?

Venus Legacy is an FDA-cleared body shaping and skin tightening system that combines the patented technology of multi-polar RF energy and pulsed electromagnetic fields to deliver uniform heat to the subcutaneous fat layer just below your skin.

As the energy penetrates your skin through a handheld device, it causes a thermal reaction in your tissues that damages unwanted fat cells and stimulates your body’s natural healing response. During each pulse of energy, you’ll feel a gentle vibration accompanied by heating and cooling sensations.

Part of what makes Venus Legacy so effective is its advanced VariPulse™ technology, a fully adjustable suction feature that allows the device to gently pull your skin upward so it can send its stimulating energy deeper than similar technologies.

Because Venus Legacy technology relies on your body’s natural healing responses to reduce persistent fat and tighten your skin, you’ll still see the most significant improvement after multiple treatments.

As your body flushes damaged fat cells and renews your skin cells over the course of several weeks, your results will become more apparent.  

How does Endermologie® work?

As the only FDA-approved technology for nonsurgical cellulite reduction, Endermologie by LPG uses a patented system of rollers and gentle suction to target areas of diet- and exercise-resistant fat and stimulate connective tissues.

Besides improving local blood flow and lymphatic drainage, the treatment also disrupts the integrity of unwanted fat cells, encourages collagen and elastin renewal, and dramatically improves the appearance of cellulite.  

Although Endermologie body contouring is a relatively gentle treatment, patients wear a skintight body suit to help protect skin tissue as the device lightly pulls the treatment area in three directions of rotation.

Most patients require 10-20 half-hour treatment sessions to get the results they want; you can expect to notice significant changes after about six sessions.  

Which body contouring treatment is right for me?

The best noninvasive body contouring treatment for you largely depends on the areas you’d like to address as well as your aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation, Dr. Stafford will assess your needs, explain your options, and answer any questions you may have.
