An Overview

VelaShape™ is a body shaping and firming treatment that incorporates advanced elos technology. Elos technology uses a state-of-the-art combination of radio frequency energy and infrared light to stimulate your body’s metabolism. Suction skin rollers are added to smooth skin and help provide for an even dispersal of energy. The effect of VelaShape is like combining the best aspects of inch loss and firming and skin tightening techniques. VelaShape can help contour and shape your body, while providing smoother, tighter skin.

VelaShape treatments are non-invasive, no needles or cutting required. VelaSmooth also works by increasing your body’s natural metabolism to shrink and reduce unwanted fat chambers. VelaShape is FDA approved to help shape your abdomen, love handles, thighs, and buttocks.

VelaShape™ Reviews:

Satisfied with VelaShape Results

Posted by KELLY M. on .
The procedure can be a little uncomfortable at times, but the technician is quick to adjust things to make it more comfortable. I've had four treatments so far and am satisfied with the results I'm already seeing.

Friendly Business

Posted by CONNIE C. on .
Thought it was going to be like all the rest. The business made me feel comfortable and the staff was very friendly. My procedure wasn't to painful.

Expecting Great Results

Posted by TIM D. on .
It's still early but I'm expecting great results. We'll see shortly.

Carly's Energy @@ Enthusiasm Made For A Great Experience!

Posted by DANA M. on .
Carly was informative, explained every detail and made me feel at ease from the start. She was as excited about my results as I was- her energy, enthusiasm and belief in the procedure made the experience great!

Pleased With VelaShape Results Thus Far

Posted by JOANNE L. on .
I'm real pleased with results so far. My only concern is it seems like my right side of stomach is a bit smaller then my left side so I would like to even the left side to match the right side. I just don't know what it would take to do this, however, I do have one more treatment left. I would like to talk to the doctor for additional treatments on other areas (arms). We will see what things look like 6 months down the chosen path of this procedure.

Painful, But Slowly Seeing Results

Posted by LINDA H. on .
It is a painful treatment. I am given different advice every time I go as to whether or not to exercise before I have the treatment or afterwards. I see a small amount of results each time. I am hopeful that the one to two hour long treatments will work.

Wonderful Technicians In Rochester, NY

Posted by CHERYL B. on .
All 3 girls who have given me treatments have been wonderful. They answered questions, made me comfortable. The only critique I have would be that they each perform the Vela part of my treatment differently. The length of time is different and the amount of pressure. Sometimes I feel satisfied with it and other times I do not.

Going Well So Far

Posted by CHERYL B. on .
Everything seems to be going well so far. My final results are not visible yet. So I'm hoping to improve them at this point.

Will Look Into Additional Procedures With American Laser

Posted by ASHTON W. on .
I was a great experience over all! I think after this procedure, I might look into doing more procedures with this company.

1 Down, 9 To Go

Posted by ISIS R. on .
So far I've had one procedure done. I have nine more to go and I am in hopes that everything goes swell.

Positive, Kind Staff In San Mateo, CA

Posted by KAY R. on .
I feel that everyone was nice and positive. I feel good about the procedure I am having and glad that it is noninvasive.

Love My VelaShape Specialist!

Posted by STEPHANIE W. on .
My tech that did my treatments, Jaimeann at the Temecula Calif office was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable in the Velashape & was very friendly.

Excited To Begin

Posted by CYNTHIA S. on .
I am really looking forward to seeing results. I am excited and hope this really works. If I am satisfied with the results I will definitely recommend this place to many people I know who will take advantage of getting their body or procedure done. Thank u if this does show a satisfactory improvement on my body you would truly be a blessing to me and I would try and get many people to get laser surgery done. I would be a walking testimony of proof.

Slight Results Not Worth The Cost

Posted by JENNIFER H. on .
When I got my consultation I was told that my cellulite wasn't bad and I would see results after the 1st treatment. After 10 treatments at the highest intensity, I saw a "slight" improvement. Certainly not even close to being worth what I paid. I liked the staff who administered the treatments.

Can't Wait To See My Results

Posted by NICOLE F. on .
The consultant and office staff made me feel really comfortable in my decision. I can't wait to see my results!

Great Experience!

Posted by ASHLEY D. on .
it was great. everyone is nice and even though money is tight i liked the choice i made.

So Far, Not What I Hoped For

Posted by AIKYA W. on .
My results were not what I had hoped for, although the treatment is not finished.

So Painful I Couldn't Walk After Treatment

Posted by LAURA D. on .
The sales agent did not make it clear that I would be charged the total $2k before ever even trying the treatment. I thought I was paying on a per treatment basis. The treatment was extremely painful, although it was advertised as painless. I was so bruised I could not walk afterwards. If I did not have better things to do, I would sue your company for misrepresentation and fraud. I was never able to get a straight answer about getting a refund. I only received one treatment and was charged $2k. Is this your standard business plan? If so, I hope you go out of business in this bad economy.

Nine Treatments Without Much Success

Posted by JOYANA P. on .
I was under the impression that my cellulite could be treated in four or six treatments because I did not have much to begin with. However, I had nine treatments without much success.
