The term cellulite refers the “dimpled” appearance of the skin that some people have on their hips, thighs and buttocks.

The condition is much more common in women than in men. This is because of the difference in the way fat, muscle and connective tissue are distributed in men and women.




About VelaSmooth

How Does The VelaSmooth Improve The Appearance Of Cellulite?

The VelaSmooth combines gentle light and radio frequency energies (ELOS) with mechanical rollers and vacuum suction to manipulate the superficial fat tissue layer that contributes cellulite. The heat from the light and RF energies increases metabolism of this fatty layer and shrinks the size of fat cells. The mechanical rollers and vacuum suction act on the blood vessels to increase circulation to the local area, as well as massaging the skin to achieve a smoother, less dimpled surface appearance.

Is Treatment With The VelaSmooth Safe?

Treatment is very safe for all skin types I-VI and can even be done on tanned skin. There are no long-term health hazards from light or RF energies.

How Long Is Each Treatment Session?

Each treatment session is approximately 30 to 40 minutes. The initial consultation with treatment takes about 1 1/2 hour. Sessions are normally scheduled two to four weeks apart.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect From The VelaSmooth Treatment?

Gradual improvement of cellulite in treated areas, improved skin surface may be evident as early as after 4 treatment sessions. Some but not all patients may also achieve body contouring benefits and reduction in the circumferential measurement in treated areas.

Does The Treatment Hurt?

VelaSmooth treatment is described as a warm, massaging sensation. The mechanical rollers and vacuum suction “pull up” the skin so there is gentle stretching of the skin surface as the applicator is passed over the area.

What Happens After Each Treatment?

The treated area may appear flushed or pink from the heat for a short while, and may feel warm for several hours after treatment. You can resume normal activities immediately.

Who Should Get VelaSmooth Treatment For Cellulite?
