Whip your figure into shape with these unique treats that pave the way for inch loss


  • Treat: VelaShape
  • Best for: Feeling the burn
  • Clinic: Aesthetics International
  • The rundown: Powered by the revolutionary elōs™ Technology, VelaShape sessions offer the chance to reduce fat layers and cellulite, by treating both the deeper tissue and upper layers of the skin. The technology works by super-heating layers of subcutaneous fat to up to 42 degrees through a series of rollers, which gently ‘pinch’ the skin. It’s recommended to have up to six sessions, each lasting between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on how quickly your skin heats. Mildly painful, but it gets results.
