The aging process, weight gain and subsequent loss, and hormonal fluctuations can contribute to uneven body contours, cellulite and loose skin on the body. While a healthy diet and getting adequate exercise are essential to maintaining a stable weight, there are body concerns and pockets of stubborn fat that these good habits cannot address. This is where a non-invasive VelaShape™ procedure can help.


Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skincare is committed to providing the highest level of care and safety to its patients. To determine if a VelaShape™ treatment is right for you, we invite you to book a professional consultation with our medical aesthetician. Offering a unique application of radiofrequency, infrared energy and vacuum massage, your treatment will be customized to achieve optimal results based on your desired outcomes.

How it works

VelaShape™ is the only device to be approved by the FDA approved for circumferential reduction. It uses the elos™ combination technology of bi-polar radiofrequency (RF), infrared light energy, vacuum and mechanical massage to painlessly improve skin texture and tone, and improve body contours. The pressure and heat energy deployed to targeted fat cells facilitates collagen production and increases lipolysis to shrink the size of the fat chamber. Thus, the skin becomes firmer, the appearance of cellulite is improved and unwanted fat is reduced around the waist, the buttocks, the back of the thighs and the flanks (love handles).


Treatment results are gradual with noticeable improvements arising after the third session. The treatment feels like a hot deep tissue massage. Some patients experience mild discomfort depending on the sensitivity of the area being treated. It is not uncommon to experience some swelling or bruising where the procedure was performed. This should resolve within a week to ten days.
