Are you one of those people who eat right and exercise regularly, but no
matter what you do, you still have cellulite? If you do have cellulite
(as most women do), you may be interested in an exciting procedure called
What is VelaShape?
VelaShape is a
non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring procedure for the treatment of cellulite.
It not only reduces cellulite, but it reduces the overall circumference
of the treated area, making this procedure a dream come true.
With VelaShape, you can safely achieve a toned and contoured body in as
little as 4 treatment sessions – with results that leave your skin
will looking and feeling more youthful and tighter than it has in years.
What’s more, you achieve this with no downtime. The procedure picks
up where diet and exercise leave off.
What parts of my body can be treated with VelaShape?
VelaShape is not just for the bothersome cellulite around the thighs, there
are several areas that can be effectively treated, including the arms,
thighs, abdomen, flank, and buttocks! Patients typically see gradual results
with each subsequent treatment.
Can VelaShape be used as a weight loss treatment?
No, this procedure is not technically for “weight loss.” Instead,
VelaShape contours the body and reduces the problem areas that are resistant
to diet and exercise, many of which are genetic.
Are you a candidate for VelaShape?
The ideal type of person for this procedure is a patient who has a Body
Mass Index (BMI) of 29 or less, and whose within The Nurnberger-Muller
Cellulite Classification of State 1 or State 2.
For example, with
Stage 1, there is NO dimpling when the patient stands or lies down, but a pinch
test shows the “orange peel” appearance of cellulite. With
Stage 2, there is “orange peel” dimpling when the person stands up,
but NOT when they lay down. Cellulite that is more severe than this is
best treated with another device called Cellfina. This is a minimally
invasive procedure that Dr. Gorodisky also performs.
What can you expect from VelaShape treatments?
You can expect a noticeable reduction in your cellulite, plus you will
also notice “circumferential reduction,” where the treated
area will be noticeably smaller and reshaped.
