At Skin MD and Beyond, Dr. Fiona Wright and her team in Plano, TX are excited to offer solutions for a wide range of skin and body concerns. Many women come to us concerned about the look of cellulite. This “cottage cheese” appearance to the buttocks and thighs affects many women, regardless of age and weight. Our practice is equipped with the latest solutions to help with this and many other concerns, including a device known as VelaSMOOTH™.
What is VelaSMOOTH™ and how does it work?
VelaSMOOTH™ is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical device used for the temporary reduction of cellulite and circumferential body contouring. VelaSMOOTH™ uses a combination of bi-polar radio frequency (RF), infrared light energy, vacuum and mechanical massage to gently smooth away unwanted lumps and bumps. The result is a more youthful appearance and reduced cellulite.
What can I expect during a treatment?
A typical VelaSMOOTH™ treatment lasts about 30 minutes. During the treatment, you will feel a warm sensation as the energy is delivered to the target area. There is no pain or discomfort associated with the procedure, so anesthetics are not needed.
Does VelaSMOOTH™ actually work?
If you’re considering VelaSMOOTH™ for cellulite reduction, you may be wondering if the treatment actually works. While results may vary from person to person, there is some evidence to suggest that VelaSMOOTH™ can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The treatment works by delivering controlled heating to the skin, which helps to break down fat cells and encourage collagen production. In addition, the massaging action of the treatment head helps to boost circulation and lymphatic drainage, further helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite. While VelaSMOOTH™ may not be a miracle cure, it can offer noticeable results for many people.
What are the benefits of VelaSMOOTH™?
VelaSMOOTH™ offers many benefits, including:
- Temporary reduction of cellulite

- No pain or discomfort associated with the procedure
- No anesthetics
- No downtime required following treatments
