Cancel Cellulite with VelaShape III

There are many reasons why women can get cellulite.

As summer nears, many of us dread the thought of baring extra skin for one major reason—cellulite. Cellulite is that lumpy, bumpy skin that shows up on our abdomen, butt, arms, and thighs. While you may think that cellulite is only the plight of women with extra weight or fat, this is simply not the case. Cellulite is found on women of all shapes and sizes—even the top female athletes of the world have cellulite. Cellulite is highly common in women, with 85% to 98% of women having cellulite on their bodies! It is something that nearly all of us can admit to being self-conscious about.

Cancel Cellulite with VelaShape III

There are many reasons why women can get cellulite. It can be due to diet, exercise, hormones, or even genetics. Aging can further exacerbate the issue, as skin starts to sag and lose elasticity. While cellulite in men is possible, it is less common as their fibrous cords are in a grid-shape that holds fat cells in place.

How does cellulite develop? It first starts with subcutaneous fat, which accumulates under the skin. As the fat cells get bigger, the fibrous cords that attach skin to muscle get weaker. The cords then stretch out, which causes the fat cells to come through and gather closer to the skin. This causes the bumpy look of skin with cellulite.

There are several remedies on the market that promise to reduce cellulite; however VelaShape III is the best option available. VelaShape III is the only method that is both non-invasive and FDA and Health Canada- approved for reducing the appearance of cellulite. Canada MedLaser in Toronto offers VelaShape III treatment as a secret to a summer body that is contoured, youthful, and cellulite-free!

VelaShape III Technology: How Does it Work? 

The VelaShape III treatment stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin. The results of using VelaShape III are an overall reduction in body volume, tightening of the skin, and an improvement of the skin’s structure and texture. The VelaShape III system by Syneron Candela uses 4 technologies to target the treatment area quickly and effectively:

  1. Vacuum technology – pulls up the tissue from the treated area and brings it closer to the energy source for maximum effect
  2. Infrared light—this heats up the tissue of the targeted area. Heat is the main factor in treating the cellulite. The fat cells, fibrous cords and collagen fibers are all heated to reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve texture and reduce overall area circumference.
  3. Bi-polar radio frequency—this energy is used to direct the heat and ensure it goes deeply and evenly across the treated area. It also ensures that the area is heated quickly to minimize damage to the skin.
  4. VelaShape rollers—these are special massage rollers that offer massage throughout the session and boost circulation to the area for better results.

VelaShape III Technology: How Does it Work? 

The entire VelaShape III treatment session is quick, easy, and very safe. It is the perfect procedure for treating cellulite areas stubborn to diet and exercise. Additionally, VelaShape III patients rarely report any pain or discomfort during or after the procedure. The VelaShape III is considered a “lunchtime procedure” and you can resume regular activities after the procedure with no downtime. Typically about 3-4 VelaShape treatments are recommended for optimal results, but improvements in cellulite can be seen even after one treatment.

VelaShape III can be used on several areas of the body, including:
  • Neck (double-chin)
  • Arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Flank (love-handles)
  • Abdomen

CoolSculpting is another technology offered by Canada MedLaser in Toronto for the treatment of areas with stubborn fat.  CoolSculpting technology freezes fat cells, which then die and are eventually eliminated from the body. CoolSculpting is effective for permanent fat loss, but does not improve the appearance of cellulite like VelaShape III. As both have their advantages, VelaShape III and CoolSculpting can be used together as a combination treatment for even more dramatic results!

VelaShape III offers the most innovative technology to rid the body of cellulite and reduce circumference. After using VelaShape III, the treated area of the body will look smoother, toned and tightened. It is the perfect procedure for treating problem areas stubborn to diet and exercise. It is important to note that VelaShape III is not recognized as a weight loss treatment. VelaShape III should be used as an additional tool to a healthy diet and regular exercise.

An ideal VelaShape candidate should have a body mass index of less than 20, and their cellulite should be between stage 1 and 2 of The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification scale.

In the consultation, an experienced medical aesthetician can create a specialized treatment plan using VelaShape III based on your body contouring goals!



CoolSculpting and VelaShape III: The Secret to a Snatched Summer Body

The Secret to a Snatched Summer Body!

With summer right around the corner, sunnier days have us dreaming of all the fun activities we will do with the warmer weather. It’s a time for patios, barbecues, and beach days. Summer also means that many of us are thinking about our “summer bodies”, and how we look in our shorts, sundresses, and swimsuits. If you are apprehensive about baring more skin, you are not alone. Most of us have stubborn fat and cellulite that we wish we could rid of. While it’s important to remember that any body is a swimsuit body, and we should love the skin we’re in, sometimes we need that extra boost in confidence to feel our very best.

The first step to a great summer body is of course to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Warm summer weather is a great motivation to eat well and stay active, especially when we can do it all outdoors. But what if, even with a healthy diet and regular exercise you are still having issues with cellulite and stubborn fat loss? Even the healthiest among us still have areas of excess fat and cellulite that cannot be eradicated through their efforts alone. Canada MedLaser in Toronto can help you achieve your goals with CoolSculpting and VelaShape III!

Canada MedLaser in Toronto always provides the most innovative treatments and technologies in the Medical Aesthetics industry, which is why we are offering CoolSculpting and VelaShape III treatments as a duo package! CoolSculpting and VelaShape III are an unstoppable combination for fat reduction and body contouring. These treatments are performed separately during planned time intervals – ensuring that your results are effective AND long lasting!

VelaShape III

VelaShape III by Syneron Candela is proven to reduce cellulite and circumference as well as tighten loose skin in as little as three treatment sessions. Cellulite is highly frequent in women, regardless of their health or weight. VelaShape III uses four technologies to treat cellulite:

  1. Infrared light
  2. Radio frequency energy
  3. Massage rollers
  4. Vacuum technology

During the VelaShape III treatment, the vacuum ensures that the treatment area is pulled towards the infrared light and radio frequency energies, which heat the fat cells, fibrous cords and collagen fibers underneath the tissue. Heating the area reduces the appearance of cellulite while improving tightening sagging skin. This means that the overall circumference of the area is reduced as well! Finally, the massage rollers ensure that circulation is boosted in the treated area for optimal firming. The VelaShape III treatment is often described as a hot stone massage!

Once we are in our teens, we typically have developed all the fat cells that we will carry throughout our life. As your weight fluctuates, your fat cells increase or decrease in size, but are never eliminated. The CoolSculpting system actually eliminates the fat cells, which is why it is the leading treatment for getting rid of stubborn fat bulges. These stubborn fat bulges are those that cannot be treated by diet or exercise, or are present after reaching a weight loss plateau. CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis, which safely freezes fat cells in order to kill them. Once fat cells are frozen, they die off and are naturally eliminated through the body. As the fat cells die, the area treated with CoolSculpting reduces in size and looks trim and toned!


Using CoolSculpting and VelaShape III in combination is the hottest new treatment plan at Canada MedLaser in Toronto. It is the best way to treat problem areas of the body for both extra fat and cellulite for a total body contour. Both procedures are considered very safe and are approved by the FDA and Health Canada. CoolSculpting eliminates fat, and VelaShape III targets cellulite while firming the treated area at the same time.  CoolSculpting and VelaShape III are both non-invasive and painless procedures, making them very popular in the Medical Aesthetics industry. Another great advantage to this treatment combination plan is that there is no recovery time needed.

Using CoolSculpting and VelaShape III together is truly the best of both worlds as each area will be treated for both fat loss and cellulite reduction by the best technologies available in Toronto. The result is a body that is contoured, tightened and toned! It is important to note that CoolSculpting and VelaShape III are not weight loss treatments. CoolSculpting is used to eliminate fat, and the VelaShape III is used for firming and reducing cellulite that cannot be bettered with diet and exercise. It is essential that the patient be committed to living a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain treatment results.
