Cellulite is notoriously difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. No creams or lotions can effectively reduce cellulite for the long-term. Now, VelaShape® offers a long-term solution for cellulite. Michael Schwartz, M.D., is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery who offers VelaShape® to men and women that live in and around Los Angeles, Pasadena and the surrounding communities of California.

What is VelaShape®?

Do you have cellulite? There are countless guides and skincare recommendations online to reduce the appearance of cellulite, but truthfully, they offer little-to-no results. That’s because cellulite creams and exercises do not effectively diminish the underlying cause of cellulite.

Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands that attach from the undersurface of the skin to the fat cells beneath the skin. This creates a dimpling appearance that can vary from minimal to extreme. Effective treatment of cellulite involves breaking up the fibrous bands and smoothing the underlying tissues.

VelaShape® 3, the latest Vela technology, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure to reduce the appearance of cellulite. This popular body contouring procedure can tighten, tone, and smooth the appearance of skin texture in common cellulite trouble areas.

What is the VelaShape® procedure?

VelaShape® uses suction, radio frequency energy and infrared light to treat cellulite. The VelaShape® procedure is performed using a specialized device which incorporates these three modalities into one advanced technological treatment. The device is placed on top of the skin in the target area to treat the underlying cellulite. The energy emitted from the device is transmitted the skin and underlying tissues to break up fibrous bands and increase collagen and elastin. The result is a diminished appearance of cellulite and improved tone to the outer layer of skin. Treatments are recommended two weeks apart and results can be seen in as few as three sessions. Continue with recommended maintenance sessions as needed.

How is the recovery following VelaShape®?

VelaShape® is a non-invasive procedure with no downtime. You can resume normal activities immediately following your appointment.
