Cellulite Treatment from VelaShape
Even with exercise and regular dieting, cellulite in specific areas can be challenging for women to correct. PSS MediSpa offers cellulite treatment in Annapolis and Easton that is both non-invasive and non-surgical, and is remarkably cost-effective and convenient compared to other, more invasive body contouring procedures.

VelaShape II is the first non-surgical and non-invasive cellulite reduction system that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There are no drugs involved in the treatment, and no recovery time necessary. VelaShape II uses an aesthetic medical device that has been proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite using a new technology called elos™, short for electro-optical synergy. VelaShape II is the only cellulite treatment that utilizes this technology to reduce the appearance of cellulite, smooth the skin, and contour problem areas of the body.

According to professionals in the health and beauty fields, about 85 percent of women 16 and older have cellulite, those unattractive, cottage cheese-looking areas of skin found mostly on the hips, thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is made from toxins and fat held in place by connective tissue called septae. Because it’s so unattractive, many women seek out treatments to soften the look of cellulite. The Vela line products are some of the most popular cellulite treatments of the past decade, and the company has published the greatest number of studies on the technology that helps reduce the look of cellulite.
How Cellulite Treatment with VelaShape II Works
Velashape II uses four technologies to treat cellulite:
- Bi-polar radio frequency
- Manual tissue massage
- Massage rollers and pulsed vacuum
Infrared, radio frequency and the pulsed vacuum delivered by hand-held devices heats the septae, which stimulates cell metabolism and the body’s production of collagen another type of connective tissue that keeps skin elastic. This causes the skin to tighten. Massage promotes the drainage of the lymph system and increased circulation. All of this helps to reduce cellulite appearance, and give the client a slimmer and firmer silhouette.
To perform a VelaShape II treatment, a trained registered nurse or medical esthetician will press the revolutionary hand-held applicator to the treatment area, allowing the specially designed rollers and suction to manipulate and smooth out the skin. Treatment produces a deep, soothing heat in the targeted area, comparable to the sensation of finishing an intense workout or a deep tissue massage.
