VelaSmooth Reduces Cellulite with Multiple Treatments

Our VelaSmooth Cellulite Treatment announcement (see below) has generated lots of questions. First of all, women, don't be ashamed -- more than 80 percent of women over the age of 20 complain of "cottage cheese" thighs and buttocks (the most popular treatment area for VelaSmooth). The excitement is due to the fact that treatments are simple and effective -- showing a 50 perecent reduction in clinical studies so far. (We are participating in an FDA-approved study currently.) And prior to this treatment, there were very few viable options. Here are the most frequent questions I get, and some brief answers. For more info, please call my Duxbury, Massachusetts office at 781.934.2200.

How many treatments do I need?
Patients will require a minimum of ten treatments to achieve optimal results. Intermittent follow up treatments are then suggested to maintain results.

Does it hurt?
No, the gentle vacuum action of the VelaSmooth is actually quite soothing and is akin to a deep tissue massage. There is a sensation of heat and kneading that patients find quite tolerable.

What does it cost?
Treatments are priced according to surface area. The average thigh or buttock cellulite treatment will run about $1500-2000 for 10 treatments. VelaSmooth cellulite treatments are sold in packages since multiple treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results.

Will the cellulite return?
Recurrence of cellulite does not occur as long as the patients are dedicated to an exercise regimen and healthful diet. Touch up treatments may be necessary to maintain optimal results.
