New Products: Device for temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite

September 1, 2008

Noninvasive product is the first FDA-class II device cleared for temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite.

Hello baby; bye-bye cellulite?

Helping women achieve their 'before baby body,' is the goal of VelaShape from Syneron Medical Ltd. (Yokneam, Israel). Could that be enough for some postpregnancy patients, even if VelaShape reduces the appearance of cellulite only temporarily?

The noninvasive product is the first FDA-class II device cleared for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite-and also the first FDA-cleared device for the temporary reduction of thigh circumference, says Syneron.

A VelaShape treatment uses its elos technology (Electro-Optical Synergy), which combines infrared light energy and bipolar radiofrequency energy to send heat deeply into the tissue, with rollers to smooth the tissue.
