What is Nonsurgical Fat and Cellulite Reduction?
No matter how fit and healthy you are, unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to prevent or remove cellulite on your own. Cellulite (a fibrous tissue) forms beneath the skin, mostly around the hips, thighs, and stomach, and can create a lumpy, dimpled look. At Elysium SurgiSpa, our team is pleased to offer nonsurgical fat and cellulite reduction at our Chicago, IL office. We use noninvasive body contouring technology by VelaShape® III that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy, infrared light, mechanical massage, and vacuum suction to smooth the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks, as well as reduce circumferential fat around the thighs and abdomen. To learn more about enjoying great, visible results from VelaShape III treatments, contact us for a consultation today.

What to Expect with Fat and Cellulite Reduction
Prior to your fat and cellulite reduction session, our team will work with you to create a customized treatment plan. Using suction to stabilize the treatment area, a microblade will be inserted into the treatment area with the help of the VelaShape III handheld device. The fibrous bands underneath the skin are detached, allowing the cellulite dimples to loosen, revealing smoother skin. The procedure can typically be performed in under an hour. Typically, you can resume your normal routine the day following your treatment, but you may want to refrain from strenuous activities for a few days. Common side effects of nonsurgical fat and cellulite treatment include temporary bruising, swelling, and tenderness. You can expect to see results within about three days with improvements in the following weeks. As long as you maintain a healthy weight, you should be able to enjoy your smooth results for up to two years.
VelaShape III FAQ
What is nonsurgical fat reduction?
Nonsurgical fat reduction, using the innovative multi-mode VelaShape III procedure, is a safe, effective way to reduce stubborn fat and help lessen the appearance of cellulite on the body. It is suitable for both women and men and has shown to produce dramatic results in many patients.
Does VelaShape III actually work?
Yes, it does. According to a study published in Lasers in Medical Science, a group of women aged 21 - 58 years old found that after treatment to one or more sites (stomach, legs, buttocks), 85% experienced a reduction of 1.2 - 3.3 cm of fat. Ultrasound readings showed an average of 29% reduction of the fat layer after a one-month follow-up. A post-study evaluation reported that 97% of the patients expressed overall satisfaction with their results.
What exactly is VelaShape III?
The VelaShape III used by Elysium SurgiSpa is a cutting-edge nonsurgical fat reduction therapy that combines multiple vectors of attack to reduce fat and the appearance of cellulite. VelaShape III uses radiofrequency (RF) energy, infrared light, mechanical massage, and vacuum suction to effectively reduce fat and cellulite on the stomach, thighs, legs, and buttocks.
How long does it take to see results with VelaShape III?
The majority of patients will see results after three treatments, which are generally about six weeks after the first VelaShape III procedure. Results will build and accumulate after each treatment, continuing to improve as the body produces new collagen. The most noticeable results are typically seen within two to three months after the final treatment.
How many VelaShape III sessions do you need?
For most patients, the typical treatment course will be 3 – 5 treatments over a six-week period with one treatment performed each week. Some may need a maintenance treatment a month after the final VelaShape III procedure. After that, you may only need a maintenance treatment every 3 – 6 months, depending on your needs.
