Your Cellulite Examination
When you visit Heights Laser Centre about having cellulite reduction, 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:
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 patients get the body shape and results they want, not perform ineffective procedures.
Your Treatment with VelaShape II ®
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.
At Heights Laser Centre, Dr. Jaffer offers VelaShape II technology for cellulite reduction treatments.
VelaShape II ® uses a combination of infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy, and vacuum to reduce or eliminate the appearance of cellulite for Vancouver 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 ®.
Expectations & Results
For most patients, cellulite reduction treatments using this technology is a pain-free experienced, but most notice a slight redness at the site of the treatment. Not to worry – this redness will subside within a few hours.
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. You can even spend time reading or checking Facebook while our team performs your procedure. For some, it’s the perfect time for a cat nap! Cellulite reduction with VelaShape II ® is THAT easy!
Frequently Asked Questions About Cellulite Reduction
Is VelaShape II ® cellulite reduction right for me?
It is important to note that cellulite reduction is not a weight loss treatment, but instead is meant to contour your body. The ideal cellulite reduction patient will have a body mass index of less than 30 so schedule a consultation to find out if VelaShape II ® will work for you!
Do I need to lose weight before having cellulite reduction treatments?
As we mentioned above, cellulite reduction is not a weight loss procedure, so to get the best results possible, you should be at or near your ideal weight before having cellulite reduction treatments.
Is cellulite reduction safe for everyone?
Cellulite reduction with VelaShape II ® is safe for all skin types. Be sure to let Dr. Jaffer know if you have very sensitive skin or are prone to skin irritation, as this may impact your treatment frequency.
Will my cellulite reduction be noticeable immediately?
Results from cellulite reduction treatments take time. You will not see results immediately after your first session, but throughout your treatment program, your results will begin to show. Vancouver patients see their final results within a few weeks after their final treatment, as the collagen strengthens.
