Does VelaShape™ III Work & How Much Does It Cost?
Summer is like an extended season here in Albuquerque, and most months of the year, you can show some skin. But if you’re like many people, you may have some areas of unwanted fat or cellulite that just won’t seem to go away and keeps you from donning shorts and skirts. Fortunately, there are some great non-surgical solutions available for these stubborn concerns, including VelaShape III, a popular fat and cellulite treatment at our Albuquerque clinic.
VelaShape III is a completely non-invasive body contouring procedure. It works to effectively reduce fat and cellulite in areas that are often hard to treat with diet and exercise alone. It uses a “combined energy system” called elōs™, which first uses a small vacuum to elevate the skin and then treats it with infrared light and radiofrequency energy. The energy produces heat below the surface of the skin, treating the underlying fat and tissue while leaving the surface unharmed. Treatments typically last an hour, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately with no downtime or pain.
Does It Really Work?
Yes! The VelaShape III procedure has led to great results for many patients. One study revealed 85% of patients reported at least a 1-centimeter to 3-inch reduction in the size of treated areas. Additionally, patients see a reduction in the amount and visibility of cellulite in those areas and more tightened and toned skin.
VelaShape III works on the outer thighs, buttocks, and abdomen, regardless of how large or small the area is. Plus, the treatment is effective on people of all skin types and colors.

How Much Does It Cost?
For cellulite treatment at AlluraDerm MD MedSpa, VelaShape III costs about $1,800 for a series of treatments. Most patients require 6 treatments to see the results they desire. For abdomen tightening and circumferential reduction, a series of 3 treatments is typically required for a total of $1,200. Afterward, we recommend patients return for a single maintenance treatment every 3 months.
