Post-Pregnancy Body Shaping

It’s no secret that new mothers face a unique series of physical and emotional challenges once their baby is born. These challenges include dramatic hormonal fluctuations, disruption of sleep and even cosmetic changes to the body including loose skin, excess water retention, muscular separation, increase in body fat, and even cellulite in new areas. Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of these physical changes is that in many cases, diet and exercise alone are not enough to return the body back to its beautiful pre-pregnancy shape.

What can you do about it?

Until recently, options for postpartum mothers included having to undergo expensive and risky surgical procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction. At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics we offer a safe, non-invasive and effective treatment to help mothers restore their body after baby.

The VelaShape is a medical grade device, which has been proven worldwide as the gold standard for treating cellulite and body contouring. It is the only device in the world to have clearance for treating cellulite and reducing the circumference of fat tissue by both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

How does the VelaShape work?

The science behind the VelaShape device is clinically backed by studies and cosmetic doctors worldwide. It is the most effective and preferred method of body contouring and re-shaping. It employs four patented technologies which have been designed synergistically to give dramatic results in as little as four to eight treatments:

  • Infrared light heats the tissue at a depth of up to 3 mm.
  • Radio frequency heats tissue at a depth of 2 to ~20 mm.
  • Vacuum +/- massage mechanisms enable precise targeting of energy to the tissue.
  • Massage assists with lymphatic drainage, tissue manipulation and blood flow.

What is body shaping?

Body contouring or shaping is achieved by treating the structure and function of superficial connective tissues. This leads to a phenotypic result of circumferential and cellulite reduction with overall re-shaping of the treated area. It is a deep, therapeutic treatment which is painless and comfortable. There is no downtime and in most cases results can be seen immediately. Our medical grade device allows us to heat tissue effectively meaning shortened treatment times with greater efficacy.
