What Causes Cellulite?

Unfortunately, there is no definite explanation of why cellulite occurs. Often times, cellulite is associated with an unhealthy lifestyle. This may be true for some, but there are other reasons why cellulite occurs. It could be genetics, or it could be due to hormonal changes. One fact remains true: An estimated 80% of women have cellulite no matter what size, shape or weight they are.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For VelaShape® Treatment?

An ideal candidate for VelaShape treatment is someone who eats right and exercises routinely with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 30. VelaShape treatment is not a weight loss solution nor is it an alternative to surgical procedures like liposuction. During your VelaShape treatment consultation, Dr. Daniels can advise if VelaShape is right for you.

How Quickly Will I Notice a Change?

Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment — with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother and firmer. Results in circumference reduction is seen from the first to second session and cellulite improvement is noticed in as few as four sessions.

What Sort of Results Can I Expect?

In clinical trials, the average range of circumferential reduction was 0.5 – 3 inches.

Is VelaShape Safe?

VelaShape is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short- or long term health effects.

Does VelaShape Hurt?

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable — like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear pink for several hours.

Are Results Permanent?

After you complete your treatment regimen, Dr. Daniels recommends getting maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical and surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

Can VelaShape Be Used On Men?

Yes. VelaShape has been effective in reducing gynecomastia (“man boobs”), and toning the areas around the abdomen, chest, legs, and thighs.


  • “I workout but it still doesn't firm up the areas that I am concerned about. With VelaShape, I am able to target these areas. I noticed that my thighs circumference went down significantly. I was really impressed! The treatment feels like a warm massage, so there is no pain. I absolutely believe it has been worth the money.
