Dr. Kavali is excited to offer this FDA-cleared nonsurgical approach to cellulite reduction. Vela Shape uses a combination of 4 technologies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and to smooth your skin: infrared light, radiofrequency, massage, and suction. It works by reducing the volume of fat under the dimpled surface of the skin, by increasing blood flow to the area and by increasing lymphatic drainage from the area.
The other benefit of Vela Shape is that it produces circumferential reduction of the treated area, meaning you’ll have smoother skin and a measurable reduction in the fat layers in the treated areas.
Absolutely! We are aware of negative reviews online regarding VelaShape in general. But we have a different experience in our office. Dr. Kavali was the FIRST physician in Georgia and one of the first in the Southeast to offer VelaShape! Her professional staff have performed hundreds of VelaShape treatments. Experience is key with this procedure, and Dr. Kavali’s office has it! In fact, Dr. Kavali has been a Principal Investigator in two FDA studies using VelaShape, making her one of the nation’s true experts in the procedure.
Experience matters because it is very possible to complete a series of incorrect treatments and see no results.
80% of women have cellulite! Even worse, cellulite has no relationship to body weight, so even the thinnest of women can have cellulite. There are many creams on the market today that claim to get rid of cellulite, but the truth is that cellulite is caused by abnormal connections of the deep surface of the skin to the fatty layers of the body. These abnormal connections are what give cellulite its characteristic dimpled appearance. No cream can disrupt these connections.
The procedure is done in the office as a series of 5 treatments spaced one week apart. The treatment feels like a hot massage. You’ll see noticeable improvement in the texture and tone of your thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, or neck in just a few weeks! The results are long-lasting, but they do need to be maintained with treatments 3 or 4 times each year.
