Smooth away orange peel skin and unwanted dimples

A Cellulite Treatment That Works

Cellulite is one of the most common complaints we get about every year – most of them from women. The lumpy, bumpy appearance of the skin after years of “life” isn’t something that sparks a lot of joy for people.

For most women who talk to Dr. Jaffer at Heights Laser Centre about what he can do to get rid of their unsightly cottage cheese thighs, getting back to the smooth skin of their youth is mostly about improving their self-confidence. At Heights Laser Centre, we can perform cellulite reduction to restore your confidence and help you be more comfortable in your own skin.

Luckily, you don’t have to live with cellulite forever. VelaShape II™ is a unique, non-invasive solution for the treatment of cellulite.

What is VelaShape II™?

VelaShape II™ is a unique technology that combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum. It causes a deep heating of fat cells, and their adjacent connective tissue and underlying dermal collagen fibers. With Velashape II™, blood circulation and lymphatic drainage is enhanced over a series of treatments, which results in smoother, tighter skin. What this means is that VelaShape II™ stimulates the production of new and better collagen and elastin, which results in:

  • Reduction of Skin Laxity.
  • Reduction of Body Volume.
  • An overall improvement of your skin structure and texture, which means bye-bye cottage cheese!*

*Individual results may vary.

Your VelaShape II™ Treatment

The Velashape™ Journey to a More Sculpted You

Our medical spa designed to provide comfort and relaxation for each patient who walks through the door. From the first staff member you encounter to your final appointment with Dr. Jaffer or his laser technicians, every team member has your best interest and happiness in mind, which shows that client satisfaction is their top priority.

When You Visit Our Medical Spa

During your initial consultation, you will have all the time you need to ask every question you have about your desired procedure and the cellulite treatment we offer. You will also be able to fully explain your problem areas and what your desired results are. Because we believe in tailoring every treatment plan to reflect the specific needs of our patients, Dr. Jaffer will provide you with a solution for your cellulite reduction before you leave your private consultation.

We take an individualized approach with each of our patients, providing you with a treatment plan based on your desired results, medical history, and skin type to help get you the final look you want. It's all about helping you!

Your Cellulite Examination

Your trouble spots will be carefully examined to determine if you will be able to achieve the results you want through non-surgical treatments. Cellulite reduction can be used on the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms

If it is determined that your cellulite is too severe to benefit from cellulite reduction, you may be recommended alternative treatments. This may sound surprising, but the goal is to help you get the body shape and results they want, not perform ineffective procedures.

When you come in for your first cellulite reduction treatment, a member of Dr. Jaffer’s team will take photos of the areas of your body to be treated. These photos will be used as a baseline to compare your final results once you have completed your treatment sessions.

VelaShape II™ uses a combination of infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy, and vacuum to reduce or eliminate the appearance of cellulite for men and women. Through this combination of treatments, fat cells become deeply heated. This causes the patient’s existing collagen to grow and strengthen and breaks down the fibrous bands that compartmentalize the fat just under the skin. Patients are left with beautiful skin that has improved laxity and volume.

VelaShape II is used on several areas of the body and can be used independently or combined with another cosmetic treatment to increase cellulite reduction. For best results, Dr. Jaffer usually recommends his Vancouver patients undergo six cellulite reduction treatments to get the most out of VelaShape II™.

Many of our patients are understandably curious about what a VelaShape II™ treatment feels like. Most patients describe it as a warm, deep tissue massage. You may feel some lingering warmness on your treatment area for a few hours after your session. And some patients might display a pinkish appearance on their treatment area for a few hours or more after their treatment.

What is Cellulite?

Nobody likes the cottage cheese-like appearance of cellulite under their skin. This dimply, lumpy skin appearance, which is more common in females, and affects between 80% to 90% of women, is believed to be caused by the interaction between the connective tissue that lies just beneath the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat that you have, which is just below it. While cellulite most commonly appears on the buttocks, it can also show up on your thighs and abdomen, making you uncomfortable in certain clothing or bathing suits.

Cellulite is a common condition that affects millions of people every year. It can make it unpleasant to wear revealing clothing and can give the impression that you are unhealthy or overweight. However, this is a mistaken assumption. Although it is true that because it is a type of fat, cellulite will look more pronounced on people who are already overweight, there is no reason why people of a normal weight cannot have it too since it's more of an issue of skin quality rather than fat. It has little to do with how much or little extra weight you are carrying.

The condition is linked to a number of factors, such as hormone levels, heredity and even skin laxity. There is little that dieting or exercise can do, since it is a condition relating to the quality of skin itself.

Cellulite reduction treatments are pain-free, and most of our patients consider it to be a pleasant experience. For your added comfort, each patient enjoys a private room.
