But first, for those of you wondering what it actually is, Velashape “is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction.'
It enables you to safely achieve a more toned, and sculpted body in typically 3 treatment sessions; making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.
With its help you can target that stubborn jiggle around your arms, thighs, buttocks, flanks and abdomen. I personally focused on my stomach and buttocks and hips.
The process of VelaShape “uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape patient is someone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2. Ask your doctor to see if you're a candidate for VelaShape treatments.”
Having completed 3 sessions at Belle Femme, here’s a review I’m happy to share with you. For the lazy readers amongst us, don’t forget that it is NOT a way to lose weight. You still have to hit the gym hard, eat wisely, after which combined with this treatment; you’ll seriously start to see results.
So did it work for me? The answer is, “Yes, I think so”. The whole process feels like a very warm deep tissue massage, with some areas being a little more painful than others. The overall treatment is very comfortable, and my technician walked me through the entire process, from beginning to end. She explained how the technology of the machine was tackling my trouble spots: namely the abdominal fat that sit-ups can't get to, and that extra layer of blubber around my butt and hips.
Each session lasts about an hour, and even psychologically, once I was done, I’d walk out of the salon feeling a tad bit better about myself. In recent weeks following the treatments, I have noticed more muscle definition in certain areas and the waist on my jeans have a bit more space in them.
I’m going back for another session this week because heck, it’s Fashion Month, and I’m off to Paris in a couple days!
