What is Velashape?

How long will it take me to recover from Velashape treatment?
There is no recovery time needed after Velashape as it is completely non-invasive and there are no significant side-effects.

Are there are risks associated with Velashape treatment?

However if you are pregnant, on medication or have an ongoing health condition, seek the advice of your doctor before treatment.
How much does Velashape treatment cost?
Prices for Velashape treatment range from £80 to £250 per session, with a course of sessions costing from around £500.
