Not every patient is an ideal candidate for this treatment.Doctor Kopelman and his staff have the experience and judgment to determine if you are a good candidate for a Vela Shape III treatment. The science behind VelaShape III™ Technology:
VelaShape III combines IR (infrared), bi-polar RF (radiofrequency) and vacuum to precisely heat the tissue up to 3mm and 15mm depth respectively.The combination of IR and vacuum coupled RF technologies causes deep heating of the fat cells (adipocytes), their surrounding connective tissue fibers and the underlying dermal collagen. The application of vacuum allows for deeper and faster heat penetration. This promotes an increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Result:A localized reduction in skin laxity, volume and an overall improvement in skin texture.
Non-Invasive Cellulite Reduction
VelaShape™ is a non-surgical FDA-cleared medical device for a body reshaping, cellulite reduction treatment and localized circumferential reduction treatment in areas such as the thighs, buttocks, hips and abdomen.
Q:What is cellulite?
A: Cellulite is the unsightly lumpy nodular “orange peel” dimpled skin appearance that most commonly appears on the buttocks, back of thighs and saddlebags. Cellulite occurs primarily in women and is probably one of the most aesthetically troubling concerns that women have – it is estimated 80% of women over the age of 20, regardless of their weight or size are affected by cellulite. Cellulite also tends to become more noticeable with age.
Q:What causes cellulite?
A: Why women are more prone to cellulite is unknown. We do know that connective tissue bands surrounding fat pads swell and push fat cells outward producing a “cottage cheese” appearance to the skin.
Q:How is cellulite treated?
A: VelaShape III™ is the only non-surgical device approved by the FDA for body shaping and cellulite reduction, VelaShape III™ is the most advanced device that combines radio frequency waves, a laser, and suctioning massage to effectively reduce the size of fat cells, re-contour the skin’s surface, and reduce the appearance of cellulite with no downtime.Treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It can also have a synergistic effect to reduce unwanted fat deposits when combined with UltraShapePower™.

Q: What areas of the body is the VelaShape III™ effective?
Q:What can I expect from VelaShape III™ treatments?
A: Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite. The skin will appear less dimpled.Circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area.If however you demonstrate horizontal lines on the back of your thighs this is not cellulite-this is an accordion like laxity of skin that is accentuated when you stand-up and is not remedied with VelaShape treatments
Q:How many treatment sessions will it take before I can expect to see improvement?
A: Patients typically see a marked improvement in a few treatment sessions (4-6) depending upon the severity of the cellulite.
“One size does not fit all”
Dr.Kopelman combines several non-invasive technologies to customize your treatment to achieve the best possible results. Specifically he uses UltraShape™ which can be a more powerful method to reduce fat deposits without impacting the overlying skin then he combines Vela Shape™ to tighten the skin and improve overlying cellulite.
Q:Will I need to continue to have periodic maintenance treatments?
A: Yes, VelaShape III consistently produces improvement however it is not a cure for cellulite. Therefore, in order for you to continue to experience the benefit of this non-invasive cellulite treatment Dr.Kopelman recommends that you have “tune-up” treatments at least four times a year, maintain a stable diet and continue to exercise.
Dr. Kopelman and his team strive to make you look and feel better and take pride and pleasure in being apart of that positive change in your self image.
