After 2 Vela shape treatments and now 3 years later.I just found out through my dermatologist at UCSF, The blood clots I now have on my lower legs is a result of traumatic exposure to heat and Twisting.The pain, medications and scars I now carry are a result of this treatment according to UCSF.I'm wanting to know if anyone else has had a similar issue, They are blood clots that start under the skin and very painful and take months to heal.It took 1 year and 10 doctors later to finally get to UCSF and get treatment which is Meds 3 times a day, blood thinners.Please let me know if anyone has experienced anything similar with this VELA SHAPE service.
Thank you,

    After 3 velashape treatments, my leg swelled up and was very painful. I've been to 5 Dr's and I've been using a wheel chair and crutches to get around. When I signed up for velashape I told her I have PMR, an auto immune thing and I asked her if I should even do it. She said I should be okay. Well later I found out you should not do this if you have a compromised immune system. Velashape said there are no refunds, how fair is that? I'm still in pain after seven weeks, I don't know when this will end.

    I understand how you feel and I'm consulting another lawyer to get some compensation, hopefully for the intense pain and blood clots I will have for life.If you should want to talk please let me know.I think there must be more people and perhaps, we can do a class action law suit? I just got the e-mail from you and sorry for your pain and my non promptness.Please stay in touch. My telephone # 415233-2255
