Cellulite is due to an abnormal fat collection primarily located on the back of the thighs and buttocks. It is genetically predisposed in females. The new Velashape III is the latest Vela device manufactured by Syneron. Through the combination of mechanical rollers and suction, plus heat from radiofrequency and infrared light, Velashape III helps to break down and shrink fat cells, smoothing out the area and reduce the overall appearance of cellulite and skin laxity. Several treatments (approximately 2-4) are usually required initially and maintenance treatments are possibly needed. The treatments are non-invasive with little discomfort, and appear to be most effective for reducing the appearance of cellulite.
