If you are experiencing dimples and divots in your skin, but you can’t get rid of them or even know why they’re there, then you are in the right place. Cellulite is common on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and belly, and those dimples are actually fat deposits underneath the skin. VelaShape® can help eliminate the appearance of cellulite, leaving you with a smoother body contour.

Gender & Genetics

Your gender matters when it comes to cellulite. Women develop more fat in the buttocks and thighs, which leads to cellulite. Because of this, women often experience cellulite more than men. Additionally, genetics plays a significant role in whether or not you will get cellulite too. Everyone’s bodies are different, and some are more prone to cellulite than others.

Age & Weight

The skin loses its elasticity as we age, which leads to the development of cellulite in older women. That doesn’t mean that only older women will get cellulite. Cellulite can come at any age and any stage of life. Weight gain can also contribute to the development of cellulite. For most, not even the most strenuous workouts or healthy diets will help.

Yes! VelaShape® Can Help!

Should we say that again?! Yes! VelaShape® can help with the appearance of cellulite. This process uses a combination of infrared light and radio frequency to heat the treatment area. The abdomen, arms, knees, and thighs can be treated with VelaShape®.
Some patients may require more than one treatment to achieve their desired results. However, a personal consultation can help determine if you are a candidate for VelaShape®. During this consultation, you will be able to discuss your goals and find out how many sessions you may need to reach those goals.

VelaShape® patients will notice decreased cellulite and improved skin tone and texture as collagen production increases. Results will last longer if a balanced diet and exercise routine is followed.
