At Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX, Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina, and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho now offer VelaShape.  We are so excited to offer this new, noninvasive technology to reduce unattractive lumpiness under the skin that cellulite can cause. No matter if you are thin or overweight, young or old, cellulite can happen to you. We understand that you want to look your best, and cellulite can keep you from having a positive body image. Using bipolar radiofrequency energy to heat the cellulite combined with gentle vacuum pressure to increase the depth of the treatment, VelaShape destroys those unwanted fat cells without surgery. At Beyond Beautiful Texas, you can have a private consultation with Dr. Ho or Dr. Aliano Messina about ridding your buttocks, arms, abdomen, flanks, and/or upper thighs of cellulite with VelaShape. Call and schedule your appointment today.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for VelaShape are women  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, overweight, young, and/or old bodies.

What to Expect

During your treatment session, we will ask you to lie in the prone position while an aesthetic technician passes the handheld 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 vacuum suction to bring the cellulite closer to the surface, the VelaShape targets the area with heat guided by bipolar radiofrequency energy. The length of time your appointment takes is dependent on the amount of treatment area(s) covered.

Anticipated Results

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 VelaShape will reshape the contour of your skin. Your body will naturally absorb the dead fat cells and eliminate them 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.
