For men and women who want to eliminate “orange peel skin” or “cottage cheese thighs” in a non-surgical, non-invasive way, VelaSmooth™ is an exciting option. Approved by the FDA in 2005, VelaSmooth™ is a massage-based treatment that reduces cellulite, shrinks fat cells, and contours the body. There are no injections, no anesthesia, and no needles.

What is VelaSmooth™?

VelaSmooth™ uses electro-optical synergy to smooth out cellulite, tighten skin, and contour the body. The system employs a combination of lasers, massage rollers, and vacuum suction to target and minimize fat deposits. It works best in cases of moderate to severe cellulite.

How VelaSmooth™ Works

Before the treatment starts, the doctor or technician will evaluate your body and decide on a treatment plan to address your areas of cellulite. The VelaSmooth™ rollers and vacuum manipulate the skin in your trouble areas, like the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen, reaching the deepest layers and smoothing out the underlying tissue. The massage makes it easier for the lasers to penetrate your skin and tissues. VelaSmooth™ directs radio frequency and infrared light into the fat cells in the treatment area; the blend of heat and light speeds up the metabolism of the cells and shrinks their size. For optimal results, VelaSmooth™ treatments are recommended twice a week for about 4-8 weeks, and then monthly to maintain results.

Effects of VelaSmooth™

Patients of VelaSmooth™ say the treatment feels like a deep tissue massage that warms their skin. There is minimal discomfort and little risk of burning, irritation, and bruising. Since the procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical, no anesthesia is used, and there is no recovery period requiring bed rest or intricate bandages. Some added benefits to the VelaSmooth™ procedure are improved circulation, and relief from muscle aches and pains. Some patients may experience a slight burning, irritation or rash post-procedure – it should disappear within a day or two.
