What is VelaShape®III
A Non-Invasive Body Contouring
Feel the confidence that comes from knowing you look your best with VelaShape non-invasive body contouring. VelaShape is a powerful combination of infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency that is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite and result in smoother skin.
What causes cellulite?
There is no definite explanation for why cellulite occurs.
While it may be the result of an unhealthy lifestyle, there may be other causes, including genetics or hormonal changes.
What sort of results can I expect?
In clinical trials, the body contouring power of VelaShape led to a reduction of one whole dress size after treatment.
How quickly will I notice a change after VelaShape?
You will begin to notice gradual improvement of the treated area right away as your skin’s surface starts to feel smoother and firmer. Over time you will also notice a smaller circumference throughout the treated area as well as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite, and best results will be seen at about 10 weeks.
How does VelaShape work?
VelaShape uses a combination of technologies
- A vacuum elevates the target tissue, bringing it closer to
the energy source
- Infrared light (IR) directly heats the targeted area
- Bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy safely guides heat
evenly throughout the targeted area, so that it heats faster without damaging the skin.
These energies combine to deep-heat fat cells and the surrounding tissue. The result is a smaller circumference and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

How many treatments will I need?
You have the option to undergo one longer treatment session or three shorter sessions.
Are VelaShape treatments painful?
Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post-treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours.
Are the results permanent?
Following your treatment regimen, it is recommended that you periodically receive maintenance VelaShape treatments. Like all techniques, invasive or non-invasive, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regimen.
What makes the latest VelaShape treatments more effective?
Treatment sessions are now shorter, and you can see results faster than ever. Many patients now report visible results after their first visit.
What is ZERONA®
A Cold Laser & Low Level Treatment Technology
The following is another example of scientific proof of the Erchonia lasers effect on adipocytes. All of the SEM, TEM, MRI and all other research of this website was done using an Erchonia laser. The research represented below was done in the US using an Erchonia laser and shows time-released photography of one fat cell and its contents being emptied. Please note the cell is still alive. Erchonia only uses its own research to prove its patent-pending applications.
Zerona is the first non-invasive body contouring procedure to effectively remove excess fat without the negative side effects associated with surgical methods. Zerona utilizes the same cold laser technology developed by Erchonia, which has been shown to emulsify fat and allow it to move to interstitial space. Although this technology was originally utilized to help assist tumescent liposuction procedures, it was found that the cold laser treatment alone helped clients to reduce inches from their waist, hip, and thighs. The cold laser technology behind the Zerona procedure was shown to exclusively release the cellular contents of fat cells while leaving the capillaries and other cells within the interstitial space intact. The release of the fat cell contents is the result of the disruption of the cell’s membrane. This membrane disruption, called a transitory pore, is the result of low-level laser stimulation.
Through a double-blind, randomized, multi-site and placebo-controlled study, the Zerona procedure is proven to be an effective non-invasive and body contouring procedure. On average, clients lost on average 3.64 inches from the circumference of their waist, hip, and thighs, whereas the placebo group only lost an average of a half of an inch. The Zerona cold lasers provide clients with a safer alternative to surgical procedures, which can result in bruising, swelling, and damage to other tissues. There is no need to wear bandages with Zerona and since there is no pain, there is no need for anesthesia. Unlike other non-invasive approaches, Zerona low-level lasers do not rely on heating tissue, which can cause discomfort. There is no downtime, so clients can resume their normal activities immediately.
ZERONA® is a non-invasive body contouring procedure using the Erchonia® Laser Scanner. The multi-site clinical trial conducted by Erchonia® to validate the process focused on the abdomen, hips, and thighs. The Zerona low-level laser therapy is approved for use on these target areas. Most doctors’ offices have the client lie on a comfortable table for 20 minutes on each side while the five lasers are applied to the target areas simultaneously.
Thousands have tried this procedure, and have lost an average of 3.64 inches around the waist. Imagine going from a large to a medium, or a medium to a small, just by relaxing for forty minutes, a few times a week.
For a noninvasive, alternative medical solution to the traditional fat removal procedures and surgeries, consider the use of the ZERONA® laser procedure.
