At least 80% of women have some degree of cellulite. VelaSmooth™ is a revolutionary new treatment used to reduce cellulite. Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery is one of 40 sites chosen in the United States to study the effects of VelaSmooth™ prior to its FDA approval.
How does VelaSmooth™ work?
The painless treatment combines radiofrequency waves, a laser, and a mechanical suctioning massage to break up the fat and mobilize the water from tissues to safely and effectively re-contour the skin’s surface, specifically where problem areas of cellulite occur.
What areas can be treated with VelaSmooth™?
VelaSmooth™ works on all skin types. The most commonly treated areas are the stomach, abdomen, love handles, upper arms, hips, thighs and buttocks.
How many VelaSmooth™ treatments are necessary?
For optimal results, most patients receive eight to ten treatments that last about 30 minutes.
Is there any downtime after a VelaSmooth™ treatment?
There is no downtime with the procedure. Patients can resume normal activity immediately following treatment.
Does VelaSmooth™ eliminate fat?
VelaSmooth™ only reduces cellulite. However, VelaSmooth™ treatments can also be used in conjunction with mesotherapy for fat reduction. Independently, each treatment works well in achieving the desired results; but in combination, the results are outstanding.
