Home' Spa and Clinic : Volume 63 October 2015 Contents sensation throughout the treatment," she
says. "It also felt `burny' at first but that
didn't last for long.
"I noticed visible improvements after two
treatments and even more after three. It was
noticeable first on the sides of my lower back
and that is the area I've seen most difference.
"My skin is tighter there, my scar less
obvious and I have no cellulite.
"I feel so much better in myself and so
now everything is better. I'm more confident
with my body and I have more energy.
"As a personal trainer I already had a
good nutrition and fitness plan and naturally
I continued it throughout treatment.
"I would urge anyone else seeking fat
reduction treatment to ensure they are
eating well and exercising regularly to get
and maintain the best results."
Sally heard about V3 while on the
eight-week Body Wise training and
"I lost considerable weight on the
program but problem areas on my arms and
stomach I was finding hard to specifically
target," she says.
"My children are 16 and 19. The biggest
physical change for me after having kids
was definitely the flabby stomach. Over the
years, despite losing weight in other areas, I
found this spot the most difficult.
"Having children is without a doubt the
greatest gift. But despite being so happy and
over whelmingly in love with my babies, on a
personal level it was the lowest point as far
as self esteem.
"I recall feeling terribly unattractive
and not being able to fit into any nice
clothes. I was even wearing my husband's
jeans at one point!"
It was Sally's personal trainer who
referred her to the Urban Lounge.
"I had three treatments in all, both
on my arms and stomach. I found the
first treatment a little uncomfortable -- a
pinching sensation and the targeted area
gets quite warm - but as it went on it was
actually quite relaxing.
"I noticed the improvements after the
second session and other people started
noticing around this time too.
"In 16 weeks I have lost 16.5kg and
165cm. This was through a combination
of Body Wise program - which I completed
twice - and the V3 treatments.
"I was pretty focused on making lifestyle
changes. I began eating more greens and fresh
fruit and veg and less pre-packaged pasta and
rice etc. I did a daily exercise routine at home
that was really easy and over and done with in
about 15 minutes in front of the tele!
"Prior to this I was at a stage where I just
wanted to stay at home. I knew I had let my
weight get out of control and didn't want to
face people. At one stage I gained 15kg in a
little over a year!
"I don't even know if I can convey in
words how much better I feel. The difference
is incredible. I have so much more energy, I
feel better at work and of course personally."
The treatment is suitable and effective for
all skin types and colours. The ideal candidate
is normal to over weight, with cellulite around
the stomach, hips and thighs.
Before clients embark on a treatment
plan, as the treatment clinician you should
encourage them to be committed to a
healthy diet and exercise regimen before,
during and after treatment.
"One of the gyms we collaborate with has
a personal trainer who puts our clients on an
eight-week fitness and diet program during
and after the VelaShape treatment(s)," says
Sanctum's Dr McCartney. "They will be
educated about nutrition; the best foods for
their needs and what to eat when.
"Another gym devises individually
tailored programs for each client.
"We often find our clients are so thrilled
with their results that they are motivated
to come back for another round of V3 to
improve on what's been improved.
"Another exciting development is that
we've had clients come in who've considered
surgery as their only option - one woman
for loose and fatty upper arms, the other for
her neck. I asked them to try V3 first.
"Both were so delighted by their results
that they are no longer considering the
invasiveneness of surgery."
