Cellulite Reduction at Young Medical Spa
Regardless of their weight, most women experience cellulite in one area of their body or another. In fact, cellulite is a structural problem and is not caused by the amount of fat on one’s body. Cellulite appears when fibrous bands pull skin tissue down trapping pockets of fat underneath the surface, resulting in a lumpy and dimpled appearance to the skin surface. Comfortably reduce the appearance of cellulite with cellulite reduction treatments at Young Medical Spa®.
FDA-cleared VelaShape® non-invasively uses infrared and high-powered radiofrequency energy through a vacuum to heat and massage the sub-cutaneous layers of fat in order to shrink fat cells and treat the appearance of cellulite.* This method of cellulite reduction increases circulation, lymphatic drainage, and collagen deposits in the treated area with no downtime. While VelaShape does not destroy fat cells, a healthy lifestyle must be practiced to ensure longer-lasting results. Maintenance treatments may be also required for lasting results.
Cellulaze™ treats cellulite by addressing the structures under the skin that are causing the dimpled appearance. Minimally invasive Cellulaze uses thermal energy through a small cannula to target areas of cellulite. This treatment melts fat cells, releases the fibrous bands creating dimpling, and stimulates collagen production to result in smooth, healthy-looking skin.
Cellulite Reduction treatments at Young Medical Spa can reduce cellulite in the following areas:
Frequently Asked Questions about Cellulite Reduction at Young Medical Spa
Am I a candidate for cellulite reduction treatments?
If you experience cellulite on the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, or arms, you may be a candidate for either VelaShape or Cellulaze.
How many cellulite reduction treatments will I need?

Optimal results from VelaShape can be seen after a series of treatments (usually six) performed one week apart. While some improvements can be seen shortly after a Cellulaze treatment, optimal results can appear up to six months after treatment, although individual results may vary.
How is VelaShape different from other cellulite treatments?
VelaShape differs from other cellulite treatments because it is the most advanced non-invasive cellulite reduction treatment available due to its use of four different technologies (suction, radio frequency, mechanical massage, and infrared) to target one condition. VelaShape works best for mild to moderate cellulite.
Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive FDA-approved procedure that can reduce the appearance of cellulite by severing the fibrous bands under the skin that pull the skin downward resulting in a dimpled appearance. Cellulaze works best for mild to moderate cellulite.
