It's always sunny in Dubai!  And you know what that means Ladies? Those legs are out and into the spotlight. For some of us that is a happy sunshiny, occasion. For others? Not so much. Even if you are in tip-top shape. You still might feel like hiding those limbs, due to the one thing that almost every woman has and no woman wants; cellulite!   

What is cellulite?

Do you have uneven, lumpy skin on your hips, thighs, or buttocks? This may be a sign of cellulite. Cellulite occurs when the skin overlying certain areas of fat is pulled downward to the deeper tissues by connective tissue bands. This creates an uneven surface.

Cellulite affects women more than men due to the different fat, muscle, and connective tissue distribution. It’s thought to affect 95 % of women in varying degrees. Cellulite is not harmful, but we still want to get rid of it! well you can, with our Velashape treatment.

What is Velashape?

VelaShape is a wonderful alternative when diet and exercise aren't cutting it, but you don't want to go under the knife. It uses a combination of heat, massage, vacuum suction, infrared light, and bipolar radio frequency. 

During this simple procedure, a handheld device is placed on the skin and, through pulsed vacuum technology, suction against the skin, and massage rollers, cellulite-causing fat cells are targeted. 

Then, the infrared light and radiofrequency penetrates the fat cells, perforate the membranes, and cause the fat cells to release their fatty acids into the body and shrink. As this is happening, it's also boosting collagen which, in the end, replaces skin laxity and promotes skin tightening. Through a series of short treatments, you can kiss loose skin goodbye and prepare for tighter, younger-looking skin.

What are the potential side effects?

Possible side effects following a VelaShape procedure include tingling, localized warmth, redness, and bruising. These side effects typically resolve quickly after the treatment.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions you will need to achieve the results you’re looking for will depend on the condition of your skin, what results you’d like to achieve and how your body responds to treatment.

Most clients start with three treatment sessions but may choose up to six to maximize their results. Each client’s needs are different.

How far apart should treatments be?

Each of your appointments will be scheduled approximately 10 day's apart from each other. This will allow your body to heal and more collagen to be produced. After 10 day's , the same treatment will be done, but you’ll be starting with your skin in a healthier place and with less fat than the time before. 

What to expect?

Most clients will see results after their third session, about 4 weeks after their first treatment. Results are gradual and cumulative. Your results will continue to improve, with the best results being most apparent two to three months after your final treatment. This is when the circumference and cellulite reduction will be at its most significant. You may see results like:

  • A smoothing of the lumpy appearance of cellulite
  • A smooth contour where problem bulges used to be
  • Tighter skin
  • Reduced local fat bulges
  • Reduction in the circumference of treatment area

How to maintain?

People who follow a healthy lifestyle are best able to extend or maintain their results. Eating a diet low in fat, carbohydrates, and sugar while maintaining an exercise routine will help to keep you at a steady weight to avoid the expansion of your fat cells.

Like all non-surgical treatments, results are temporary unless you follow your therapist recommended routine of follow-up sessions. Clients consistent in scheduling these appointments enjoy the most seamless results.

Am I a good candidate?

We can decide if this is the right treatment for you. If you’re in generally good health and want to improve the appearance of cellulite while reducing fat bulges and the circumference of trouble areas, this could be the perfect match. This is designed to be safe for all skin types and tones.

This treatment is not designed to be a weight-loss tool. While you may lose circumference, you shouldn’t expect to lose a significant amount of weight. Talk to us about the results you can expect.

Why choose us?

Our treatment time is twice as long as in other clinics. Longer time is larger surface and more effective in less treatments.
