Ask us about our VelaShape PRO Promotion!
Dr. John Shieh, M.D., recently was a speaker at the 15th annual congress of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, in Las Vegas on December 13th, 2007, where he presented the new VelaShape for body contouring to over 400 doctors. He was interviewed by Jackie Silver of Aging Backwards (www.agingbackwards.com) and he also did a test treatment for her. She had remarkable results after just one treatment!
Quoting a message she sent personally to us, she said:
"You wouldn't BELIEVE my waist and abs - I have a six-pack!!! :) After only ONE VelaShape treatment. It WORKS!!!!"

Now it becomes very easy to reshape your body with the first and only FDA approved non-surgical solution for Circumferential Reduction!
VelaShape is the next generation of the VelaSmooth and now the first and only non-surgical FDA-cleared medical device for the Body Reshaping market and the first FDA class II cleared platform for Cellulite Treatment.
VelaShape features the revolutionary elos technology combination of Bi-Polar radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage. The combination of these energies increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. The net result leads to Circumferential Reduction*, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area.
In a multi-center study, 85% of the treated areas have reported Circumferential Reduction of thighs of at least 1cm; ranging up to 7.2cm in reduction.
At RejuvaYou Medical Spas, we've perfected our years of experience into a new proprietary protocol, the VelaShape PRO advanced protocol for superior results over the standard protocols. Our exclusive RejuvaYou clients with the VelaShape PRO have enjoyed circumferential losses from 1.5 inches to 6 inches!
VelaShape PRO treatments are safe, effective, virtually painless and no downtime - patients can return to daily activities immediately following treatment. It has never been easier to achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body; making you look and feel youthful!
Our VelaShape clients consistently report improved skin texture, skin tightening, reduction of thighs or waist, significant body contouring, and overall improved health.
For optimal results, most clients receive one treatment per week for four treatments that last about 45 - 60 minutes each. There is no downtime with the procedure; patients can resume normal activity immediately following treatment.
VelaShape works on all skin types. The most commonly treated areas are the stomach, abdomen, love handles, upper arms, hips, thighs and buttocks.
RejuvaYou was selected as one of 70 FDA investigators in 2004 to offer this revolutionary medical treatment for cellulite as well as having four of the first VelaSmooth machines in the United States. The VelaSmooth has now evolved into the new VelaShape which gives even more dramatic changes in fat reduction, body contouring and cellulite reduction. We are thrilled to be among the first medical facilities to offer the VelaShape to our clients!
Because we were FDA investigators for the original Vela device, we have extensive experience with the proper use of the device in order to attain consistent, excellent results with cellulite reduction and dramatic body contouring.
VelaShape may also be combined with a Lipo-Dissolve treatment plan for faster and even more dramatic fat reduction, body sculpting, and cellulite reduction!

How does VelaShape work?
VelaShape Treatment is a new effective treatment for body contouring and cellulite. VelaShape uses deep penetrating radio frequency energy combined with infrared energy to stimulate fat cell metabolism reducing the size and number of the fat cells, and eliminating cellulite. The VelaShape device gently kneads the affected area and applies pulsating suction to improve local circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage and elimination of fat byproducts. The suction acts to stretch fibrous bands that cause dimples resulting in a smoothing out of cellulite. It is effective for all skin types.
What is the treatment like
The light energy pre-heats the treatment area. Simultaneously, a gentle suction aids in the deep penetration of the radio frequency energy into the fat tissue-redistributing and increasing the metabolism of the fat tissue. It also has the added benefit of improved circulation, supporting overall health. There is generally no discomfort and treatments are compared to a warm, deep muscle massage. There is mild pinkness in the skin and the skin feels warm for a short time. Some patients rarely may experience bruising if they are very prone to this. The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes
What is the Post Treatment Care?
There is no downtime with VelaShape and all activities can resume as normal. The area that was treated might feel slightly warm and feel a little tender for a couple of hours after the procedure.
How many treatments are necessary?
The treatment regimen for VelaShape is typically once a week treatments for 4 weeks to reached desired outcome. The number of treatments required could vary according to the severity of the excess fat or cellulite. As new fat and cellulite is a dynamic process, maintenance is recommended. This again varies, but one treatment every 3-4 months is the most optimal to avoid recurrence of new fat or cellulite.
What is the average amount of improvement that studies have demonstrated?
Studies have shown that nearly everyone will see a noticeable improvement after an initial series of treatments. Studies have proven that an average improvement for all patients on the appearance of cellulite was at least 65 per cent. Hip girth was also reduced and all patients reported feeling skin contraction as a result of the treatments. Visible changes are often noticeable after 1 or 2 treatments. There is usually visible and measurable contouring of the lumps and bumps of the skin as evidenced by post-treatment photos, girth measurements, and what most patients love the most….how their favorite pair of jeans seem to fit much better! Men seem to respond very well to VelaShape treatments for contouring of torso and abdominal areas.
How does a VelaShape treatment differ from Endermologie?
Endermologie is a deep mechanical massage. It uses a device that suctions the skin with a vacuum which will lift the skin – to stretch the fiber bands and massage the underlying fat. This suction of Endermologie has created unacceptable side effects such as bruising, broken blood vessels, and pain. With endormologie, typically only 50% of patients will respond, and the results are only temporary. The satisfaction rate with Endermologie seems very low. VelaShape adds infrared energy and radiofrequency energy, and is an FDA approved Class II medical device, while Endermologie has a lower Class I household classification.
Does the VelaShape ® replace Liposuction?
For many people, VelaShape will be a safer, gentler, less downtime alternative to liposuction. The VelaShape ® is also a terrific compliment to liposuction. Liposuction will remove fat in specific areas and can improve the shape of your body. The problem with liposuction is that it removes the fat deep down beneath the skin but cannot get close enough to the surface to help cellulite. In fact liposuction can actually make cellulite look worse. If you have had liposuction and have visible or more cellulite after surgery – then the VelaShape, might be the next step to achieve smooth and contoured skin.
Can VelaShape be used in combination with Mesotherapy?
Yes. The combination of VelaSmooth can be combined with Mesotherapy (or Lipo-Dissolve)to enhance the reduction of cellulite and to remove pockets of unwanted fat in such areas as the saddle bags, love handles, thighs and hips.
How do I find out if VelaShape is right for me?
