Mesotherapy & VelaShape

Find Clinics offering Mesotherapy in London & UK »

Mesotherapy and VelaShape are both known as cosmetic procedures used to combat the appearance of cellulite. The treatments are rather similar in how they work and can sometimes be used in combination. If you are interested in either of these procedures then you should approach a licensed practitioner for a consultation and detailed discussion.

Firstly, VelaShape and mesotherapy are similar in that neither procedure requires any downtime. With both methods of cellulite treatment, you will be able to return to work and your everyday life the very next day. However, mesotherapy can often leave some bruising and swelling. This side effect is apparently absent after VelaShape.

VelaShape involves melting fat with the aim to sculpt the body, provide slimming results as well as improving the appearance of cellulite. Similarly to mesotherapy, VelaShape also requires a number of sessions in order to see the desired results. However, it seems that VelaShape may be a quicker method as many claim that the outcome can be achieved in just four treatments. Despite this, you should be aware that the results of both mesotherapy and VelaShape depend on the individual so the time it will take for the results to become apparent will vary.

FDA Approval

A key difference between mesotherapy and VelaShape is that mesotherapy lacks FDA approval, whereas VelaShape has been given the ok. This can give you more confidence in the safety of the procedure. For more information, you should visit the FDA website and consult your practitioner.

Whereas mesotherapy involves the use of injections to treat cellulite, VelaShape employs four technologies that are used in combination. These technologies are a vacuum, infrared light, tissue manipulation and radio frequency. These are used together to try and achieve a better appearance of cellulite-affected areas, whilst reducing the amount of fat present.

Both mesotherapy and VelaShape are suitable for all races as well as every different skin type. An additional benefit is that so far, no negative health implications have been reported.
