I was going on a family vacation and was feeling very uncomfortable in a bikini. After researching about the vela shape 3 that you use at your clinic, I decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I came to yourselves and was very happy when I noticed results after the first treatment. The appearance of my skin is now smoother and my saddle bag area has been lifted and appeared smoother. I have now had 6 sessions on the back of my legs and two on the front. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results"
