Cellulite is one of the most common complaints Dr. Jaffer consults with his Vancouver patients about every year – most of them 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, Dr. Jaffer can perform cellulite reduction to restore your confidence and help you be more comfortable in your own skin.

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.
Cellulite Reduction At Heights Laser Centre
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 ®
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 ®.
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!
