Non Invasive Fat and Cellulite Removal

Cellulite and Fat can be eliminated or reduced using a Vela Slim II body contouring machine.

How if works :

Fat cells are heated and massaged by Infra Red Diode Laser, Radio Frequency energy, Vacuum suction and massaging rollers. This result in the breaking of some fat cells and cell lysis. In addition there is reduction of adhesion between fat cells and minor disruption to the connective tissue. Certain connective tissues respond  significantly to Radio frequency energy, resulting in a break down of tissue tethering the fat to the skin.

Effects :

Uneven cellulite can be reduced to smooth areas of fat with disruption of the skin tethering. The fat is made smoother as the cellular adherence is reduced and more even spreading of the fat can occur.

As there is some fat cell death in the process, repeated treatments will result in gradual fat reduction and a loss of around 1cm circumference  of fat can be expected with 3-5 treatments, and 1cm thickness of fat in 10-15 treatments.

Side effects :

There are minimal side effects. The area treated feels warm and massaged.  A massage oil is used on the skin and allergies to this is a possibility. Rarely some minor bruising can occur  with the massaging rollers.

Cost :

$100 per 30 min treatment. (30 mins will enable outer , inner thigh and buttock to be treated, or abdomen and love handles).

$450 for five 30 min treatments.

Cosmetic PhilosophyCosmetic Philosophy

Cosmetic Philosophy

Our cosmetic philosophy is to create a natural looking younger version of yourself. We aim to enhance existing features, replace areas of loss and rewind the changes of time. If any cosmetic enhancement is immediately discernible or obviously unnatural then we regard the job as being poorly performed. The onlooker should always be wondering whether the look is natural or enhanced. Our aim is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of all the cosmetic procedures and techniques available. This includes procedures I do not use but may be appropriate to your circumstances. These will be presented to you showing the expected benefit and a cost comparison with other procedures and treatments
