VelaShape™ is the 1st FDA-cleared non-invasive medical solution for circumferential reduction and the 1st FDA class II cleared platform for cellulite reduction. The VelaShape platform has also received the CE mark for non-invasive body contouring via temporary circumferential reduction and for reduction of cellulite. Powered by the revolutionary elos technology, VelaShape™ treats the deeper tissues, offering a measurable reduction in fat layers and the upper layers of the skin, resulting in cellulite and circumference reduction. It is an easy non-invasive, no downtime, comfortable deep therapeutic treatment. VelaShape™ features the revolutionary combination of Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage. Used in conjunction with our Palomar SlimLipo™ laser lipolysis, the patient is then assured of optimal results with minimal down time. After years of research for a non-invasive treatment of cellulite and excess body fat, Dr. Obi has finally acquired a device which is supported by research both in the U.S. and Europe. This resulted from our need to replace our original and older technique of Endermologie with a more advanced device that would also enhance the already outstanding results that we have achieved with our SlimLipo patients. To date we have completed SlimLipo treatments on 222 patients including more than 500 anatomic zones. In addition to becoming one of the earliest providers of SlimLipo technology, Dr. Lewis Obi has lectured to and taught this technique to numerous plastic surgeons internationally. New and innovative applications of SlimLipo has been developed by Dr. Obi and now he is one of the first providers of VelaShape™ in combination with SlimLipo. This will advance the combined results of these two modalities to even a higher level. Initial VelaShape treatments are provided to our SlimLipo patients or the patient may elect to acquire a separate VelaShjape treatment package. An introductory package of 3 treatments which normally costs $800 is offered at this time for $400. Treatments are generally 30 minutes and are performed once a week, For details visit our Renaissance Center and click on VelaShape.
