"I went to Beyond Beautiful for PicoSure laser treatments for my hyperpigmentation from years and years of acne. I was nervous because I knew the negative effects lasers can have on ethnic skin. However, Sarah was very thorough with her explanations and treatment plan. She knows what she is doing and it made it that much easier to trust her. She also has had experience with doing laser treatments on asian skin tones. The laser itself was not painful. Numbing cream is applied for 15-30 minutes prior to the laser. Your face is red afterwards for about 30 minutes, but otherwise no huge downtime like other lasers. I was able to go about my day as normal the day of. I started seeing results within 3-4 weeks and could see my hyperpigmentation fading well! Overall, I am happy with my treatment and Sarah and will be getting more treatments in the future from her!"- B.H. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"I had my ZO 3 step peels earlier this year- one in January and the 2nd in February. Sarah did such an awesome job. It was not painful at all- there is a fan you can hold to keep the cool air on your face. Sarah talked me through the process and the aftercare. There was no peeling for almost 3 days. It started peeling around my chin and mouth, then the 4th day it started working its way up my face. The peeling was not painful and was completely gone after about the 6th day. My face was refreshed and had new pink skin. If you are considering this peel I highly recommend! It is worth the money and so easy. Sarah can answer all your questions and makes herself available if you have questions throughout the process. I will be doing another one this winter!"- K.C. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done - The process was so easy and Dr. Ho and staff were kind, friendly and helpful. I had this procedure done by Dr. Ho about 10 years ago and it was time for a touch-up. The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done. I just looked fresher and less hagged-out and tired. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who wanted to look a bit fresher and happier."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 29, 2020
The best candidates for VelaShape are women (and some men), who want to improve the cellulite appearance on the arms, flank, abdomen, buttocks, and upper thighs. As this is not a treatment for weight reduction, VelaShape works best on patients who are at a stable weight, and want to target areas of the body resistant to change with a healthy diet and/or exercise regimen. Cellulite, which does not discriminate, can be found on thin and overweight, and/or young and old bodies.
What to Expect
During your treatment session, we will ask you to lay in the prone position while an Aesthetic Technician passes the hand-held VelaShape device over the treatment area. Most of our cellulite reduction patients say this feels like a relaxing massage, and has a warm sensation but is not painful. While the device uses a vacuum suction to bring the cellulite closer to the surface, the VelaShape targets the area with heat guided by a bi-polar radio frequency energy. The length of time your appointment takes is dependent on the amount of treatment area(s) covered.
After your VelaShape cellulite reduction session, your skin will look slightly red for several hours after you leave our plastic surgery office. You will see the surface of your skin gradually look smoother with a noticeable reduction in lumpy cellulite. Another benefit to this treatment is that you may see a circumferential reduction (inches lost) because the VelaShape will reshape the contour of your skin. Your body will naturally absorb the dead fat cells and eliminate it as waste. Once the treatment is finished, you will be able to return to your normal activities. However, we suggest that you avoid heavy, strenuous activities for 1 – 2 weeks.
Plan Your Procedure
Noticeably Smoother Skin
With the VelaShape, noninvasive cellulite reduction treatment, you can tone your skin with 1 – 3 treatment sessions at Beyond Beautiful Texas. While cellulite is not a serious medical condition, it is unattractive and may affect your self-esteem. We want you to love your skin again! If you think this may be a treatment you would like to try to get rid of the dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, arms, hips, butt, and stomach, please call and schedule a VelaShape consultation at our Plano, TX office.
Dr. Ho and our entire staff are completely dedicated to prioritizing your comfort and satisfaction during this cosmetic procedure. We now offer the PRO-NOX system to ensure your comfort if you cannot use or choose not to use traditional anesthetics.
With the PRO-NOX™ Nitrous Oxide Delivery System, you can control anxiety or pain during any medical procedure. Much like what you might receive from your dentist for pain, this vapor blend allows you, the patient, to choose the strength of the nitrous oxide and oxygen flow. Never worry again about sedation of local anesthesia.
