We have it FIRST!!! Velashape™ III is more EFFICIENT and more EFFECTIVE.  FDA- approved technology that uses radiofrequency, infrared light energy, and tissue massage to increase the metabolism of superficial fat cells, increase lymphatic drainage and circulation, and stimulate collagen production. This targets all of the factors responsible for the formation and worsening of cellulite.

The treatment itself is enjoyable due to the targeted nature of the radiofrequency which efficiently heats up just the fatty tissue and not the skin. A smoothing cream is rubbed onto the treatment area, and the treatment head is passed multiple times over the problematic area until it reaches a therapeutic temperature. The whole process takes about 20 minutes per area and there is no downtime.

General protocol for the treatment is 6-14 sessions done once or twice weekly.

Pricing : $250 per area per session. Discounts for multiple areas and for package purchase. (arms, front or back of legs, abdomen)

Is this treatment painful?  The older versions of this technology did have a level of discomfort to them, but with this newest version, there is little if any discomfort. The heat is not hot enough on the surface of the skin to be uncomfortable. In the beginning, some people can be sensitive to the suctions as it softens the hardened septae responsible for the dimpling, but that diminishes over time and is well- tolerated.

When will I start seeing results? Generally, since we are asking the body to make a real physiological change, improvement starts around session 4. The shrinking shows up first and then the smoothing.

What kind of maintenance do I need to do? Because cellulite will not get better on its own and generally gets worse over time, we recommend that you do one of our options for anti-cellulite maintenance as often as you can budget, but no more than once weekly and no less than 4 times a year. Typical maintenance is once monthly done the week before the onset of menstruation to reduce the effect of water retention on cellulite production.  We have several economical effective maintenance options.

Made Me HOT – I love this place! I have been going to Wellpath for three years now. I first went because I wanted to have laser hair removal on my back, and it was the closest place to where I live. I felt a little awkward at first because I thought it was a med spa just for women, but Dr. Jame and Jennifer made me feel very welcome. They love their gays! 

While Jennifer was doing my laser treatment, she asked if I had ever tried anything for the stretch marks on my back. (I do a lot of weight training and had some serious stretch marks from some big muscle gains.) I told her that I had tried various creams and treatments and that nothing had worked. She told me she could treat the marks with carboxy therapy. I decided to give it a try. Best. Decision. Ever. After just a few laser treatments for the hair and a few carboxy treatments for the stretch marks, I had (and have!) a smooth back without noticeable stretch marks.

Most recently, I returned to see about getting some localized fat treated. After bulking up for a few months, I was trying to lean down, but I could not get rid of a little lower back fat, and it was driving me crazy. Jennifer put together a personalized package of Zerona, carboxy, and Velashape treatments, and ZOMG, it did the trick! I was 13% fat at the beginning and 9% at the end! I did some dieting in there, which I know helped, but the difference was that the fat came from the right places–my lower back and a little area around my belly button!!

Try this place! You (and everyone who sees you shirtless and/or naked) will be glad you did.

Cheers!

I absolutely love Dr. Jame and her team at The Wellpath! I tried their Zerona laser treatment, combined with Velashape, to help me lose some weight around the belly that I’ve been trying to get rid off for months, even years. Thanks to their help and caring advice and treatment, I lost 10 pounds within 4 weeks. For the first time in 14 years I am back to the weight I had when I started college. And just yesterday, I tried on ‘my skinny jeans’, that I never thought I would fit into. But guess, what: I did. A big thank you to Dr. Jame, Jennifer and Carissa!!! I am so glad I found you!

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!! It has COMPLETELY reshaped my lower body! I’ve been coming to Wellpath for close to a year now after discovering that it is one of the only places in Manhattan that offers Zerona. The Zerona was fantastic, but what really stands out is that the staff was able to recommend add-on complimentary treatments that have compounded the results I saw from Zerona. I could not be happier. The staff completely designed a little program that they thought would be best for my lower body including Carboxy and Velashape. As I said, it has completely reshaped my lower body. 

The best part is that the staff is honestly the best you will find at any spa in the city. Some places feel cold and clinical when you walk in. Not Wellpath. They are so friendly, so knowledgeable and so engaged. I am honestly addicted to going. I am so lucky to have discovered it!
