Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Daniel Ladd participated in clinical trials leading up to recent FDA approval.

Patients also enjoy the fact that they can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment sessions.

Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Daniel Ladd of The Austin Skin Institute endorses the recently FDA-approved cellulite treatment Velasmooth, a revolutionary device that temporarily improves the appearance of cellulite. Dr. Ladd was one of the physicians who participated in the clinical trials leading up to the FDA approval.

"This device is truly one of a kind," explained Dr. Ladd, referring to the Velasmooth cellulite treatment combination of deep heat and massage delivered via radiofrequency, infrared and suction energies. "The deep heating mobilizes trapped fat while the massage increases circulation and allows for increased collagen production. All of these elements work simultaneously to mobilize stubborn fat pockets and increase skin smoothness."

Not only does the Velasmooth treatment improve cellulite appearance, but it actually reduces thigh circumference as well. "Patients love this body contouring and the slimming effect it has," Dr. Ladd added. "Patients also enjoy the fact that they can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment sessions."
