VelaSmooth, an FDA-approved treatment for cellulite, won’t help you lose weight but it will reshape and contour your body, and make your skin smoother.

How it Works

The VelaSmooth™ medical device uses laser technology, radio frequency, and vacuum suction to reduce the amount of cellulite found anywhere on the body, including the:

  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Neck

During treatment, you will feel the equivalent of an intense, deep-tissue, heated massage.

Benefits and Results of VelaSmooth Treatments

  • The treatment is noninvasive, and drug and chemical free.
  • Most patients do not experience any side effects, so you can return to your daily activities immediately after treatment.
  • Results and the number of treatment sessions will depend upon your body type and area to be treated.
  • The best results are achieved when VelaSmooth is used in conjunction with a regular exercise regimen.
