Velashape Laser Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite is one of those things we all get and hate to talk about. No one wants it and it is so stubborn making it nearly impossible to treat. Dr. Shapiro offers a non-surgical way of treating that difficult cellulite with Velashape™.
Velashape™ is a non-invasive laser procedure that uses radiofrequency and infrared light energy to shrink fat cells and tighten the skin. It is the only FDA cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes, and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas within 4 treatments. Velashape™ combines vacuum and tissue manipulation to modify deeper fat layers and associated connective tissues to reveal a smoother and tighter figure.
Velashape™ is most commonly used to treat cellulite on the buttocks, thighs, arms, and abdomen. Patients commonly see improvement after their first treatment, with the skin surface of the treated areas feeling smoother, firmer, and tighter. Cellulite reduction is most apparent 6 to 8 weeks alter. It is recommended for best results that periodic maintenance treatments be continued, with skin quality change and circumferential reduction lasting longer when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
