VelaSmooth for Women

The VelaSmooth treatment is a non-invasive procedure that helps reduce the appearance of cellulite. The procedure uses a combination of infrared and optical energy to break down fatty tissue, giving you smoother, softer skin. Though the treatment works on both men and women's bodies, cellulite primarily affects women. The female hormone, estrogen, helps to stimulate the storage of fat and the breakdown of collagen, which leads to cellulite formation. Therefore, the majority of patients who seek the treatment are female. Here is some information on how the VelaSmooth benefits women.

Problem Areas Treated

Fat tends to accumulate on women's thighs and buttocks. Women most often use the Velasmooth treatment on these areas as well as the back, love handles and abdomen.

Stimulates the Production of Collagen

During pregnancy, the body slows down the production of collagen in order to prepare the body for childbirth. The breakdown of collagen continues throughout a woman's life. VelaSmooth helps to stimulate the production of collagen and rejuvenate the skin.

Side Effects and Risks

Unlike other cellulite reduction procedures, Velasmooth has very few side effects and potential risks. Although there is no evidence to suggest that the treatment negatively affects pregnant women, it is recommended that women wait until they delivery to pursue the procedure.
