VelaSmooth is the first non-surgical FDA cleared medical solution for cellulite! It is the only complete non-surgical alternative to Liposuction. Common treatment areas are the posterior thighs, buttocks, outer thighs & hips, anterior thighs, inner thighs, saddlebags, love handles, and the abdomen. This method is also used for treating back pain by applying heat, which might be described as an intense deep-tissue heated massage. This painless treatment reduces fat cells that cause a loss in inches within weeks. Individual results and the number of treatments required vary with the extent or stages of the cellulite and the requested areas. It might be recommended that a candidate receive the Smart-Lipo procedure prior to VelaSmooth for perfected results, following a series of treatments depending on the candidate’s needs. A practitioner will discuss cost details with you as treatment costs vary.
Frequently Asked Questions
VelaSmooth combines gentle light and radio frequency energies with mechanical rollers and vacuum suction to manipulate the superficial fat tissue layer that contributes to 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.
Treatment is very safe for all skin colors and can be performed on tanned skin. There are no long-term health hazards from light or RF energies.
The treatment series varies per area. Some patients see the improvement as soon as 10 – 12 sessions, others may need additional treatments. Maintenance treatments are typically done once a month after the initial series in order to keep up the results achieved. Each treatment session is between 30 – 60 minutes long with visits weekly or twice a week. This time varies depending on your size and how many treatment sites are indicated. VelaSmooth also compliments SmartLipo, particularly cellulite treatment on the legs. Therapeutically, the heat from the laser relieves back pain, pelvic pain (due to menstrual cramps for example) and leg pain.
VelaSmooth treatments may feel like a warm deep tissue massage. No medication or numbing is required. The treatment settings are tailored to each patient according to individual sensitivity and gradually increased as tolerated.
The treatment area may appear flushed or pink from the heat for a short while, and may feel warm for several hours after treatment. We suggest you hydrate with water following your treatment to assist in flushing impurities from the treated area. You may resume normal activities immediately.
