What Is Circumferential Fat?

Circumferential fat is the fat that is found on the outskirts of the body and looks like small fatty deposits we know as cellulite. Often cellulite affects the stomach, thighs, buttocks and arms. Cellulite is formed when normal fat cells beneath the skin increase in size and push against the skin’s connective tissue, thereby forming the unsightly bumpy appearance. VelaShape reduces the size of the fat cells, thereby, erasing circumferential fat and the appearance of cellulite as well as stretch marks.

How Does
VelaShape Work?

VelaShape has been FDA-approved for the reduction of circumferential fat. It utilizes advanced technology by using Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF) with Infrared Light Energy, a Vacuum, and a Massage Device, all of which work together to heat the fat cells, which are then easily reduced in size with the massaging device that is applied over the skin. This combination of heat and massage encourages fat to drain into the body’s lymphatic system, where it's then processed and disposed of.

VelaShape is simply a body massage that shrinks fat cells and eliminates cellulite, love handles and stretch marks. It is the most comfortable, non-surgical, fat-reduction treatment available today. In fact, VelaShape can slim the body by up to 3 inches, as shown in clinical trials.
