Cellulite is a problem that plagues most women, eighty percent have some form of these rippling fat deposits. Velasmooth is a treatment that helps reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Cellulite is fat that is deposited directly below the dermis. The fat cells grow but the connective tissue between the fat cells does not, which creates the dimpled, ‘orange-peel’ effect that is cellulite’s calling card. The location of this fat and the appearance are what separate cellulite from normal adipose. Women from ranging from model slim to overweight can have cellulite on their thighs, hips, and buttocks, the areas typically affected by cellulite.

Velasmooth uses light and radio frequency to heat fat cells. This helps release fat to the lymph nodes. The body will dispose of the fat naturally. Velasmooth also gently smooths the skin using suction. This allows the light and radio frequency to be distributed uniformly. This results in the combination of fat reduction and smoothing results in a tighter, smoother appearance. Our board-certified dermatologists will advise our patients on the optimal number of visits for best results.

During the Procedure

The client lies on the treatment table. The dermatologist passes Velasmooth hand piece over the affected area several times. There will be a feeling of massage from the suction as well as a possible feeling of warmth from the radio frequency. Patients typically experience some discomfort as this is a medical treatment and working on a deeper level than typical spa treatments.
