Cellulite Treatment – An in office, non-invasive treatment that improves the contour of the skin.

The Cellulite Treatment Procedure

Achieving a smooth appearance to problem cellulite areas was once a challenge – either endure invasive, often painful procedures, or invest time and money in questionable topical treatments or diets that need to be repeated regularly.

The VelaSmooth, powered by Elos technology, uses a combination of radio frequency (electrical energy) and light energies, plus tissue mobilization with gentle suction and massage. This medical device is proven to safely and effectively re-contour the skin’s surface and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Dr. Kulick’s research results investigating the VelaSmooth demonstrated that the results last for months! A possible reason for the longevity is that the VelaSmooth is the one of the technologies that reaches deep enough into the fat tissue to effectively improve the appearance of cellulite. The light energy pre-heats the treatment area. Simultaneously, a gentle suction and massage rollers aid in the deep penetration of the radio frequency energy into the fat tissue redistributing and increasing the metabolism of the fat tissue as well as stretching out the fibrous bands that contribute to the irregularities. As one of the few sites in the country to perform the FDA study for this device, Dr. Kulick has extensive experience in using this technology. He has demonstrated that it is effective for not only cellulite but also for irregularities following liposuction. In his study, a clear smoothening was observed in both young and older patients.

The Cellulite Treatment

There is no “pre-treatment” required for this in-office procedure. Just bring your music, lay down and expose the area to be treated. Applying the hand piece to the surface creates a warm sensation to the skin in the treatment area. The treatment usually takes 15 to 45 minutes depending upon how many areas are to be treated. Many patients compare the treatment to a warm, relaxing deep tissue massage. There is no sedation required and no downtime. Support hose are recommended for the first 24 – 48 hours after each treatment. Following a series of treatments, patients notice a reduction of the appearance of cellulite and re-contouring of the skin’s surface irregularities after about 4 sessions. Patients may experience the added benefit of improved circulation. As you look at the PHOTO GALLERY, you can see the dramatic results that are attainable. It is also an ideal procedure following liposuction to aid in the elimination of swelling.
