I chose to offer VelaShape II™ because so many of my patients suffer from cellulite regardless of body type.

VelaShape II™ is the FDA-approved body contouring device known for its proven effectiveness in cellulite treatment. The body contouring procedure is safe for all skin colors and types, and is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive device for treating cellulite.

VelaShape II™ devices offer increased effectiveness compared to original VelaShape™, with patients often seeing results in less than half the time. The body shaping system treats body areas large and small, with measurable effectiveness in clinical trials. This is a key consideration, when - prior to VelaShape™ - there were no viable alternatives for cellulite reduction services. While liposuction is a popular fat reduction procedure, it does not treat cellulite, according to Dr. Nia Banks.

"I chose to offer VelaShape II™ because so many of my patients suffer from cellulite regardless of body type,” said Dr. Banks. “To date, we have not had anything to offer for cellulite. We pride ourselves on offering full service for our clients, from skin care to surgical procedures; the VelaShape II™ technology fills a large gap. When deciding on technology, we chose the first FDA-approved technology due to its safety and track record in the industry."

Cellulite commonly affects such areas of the body as the buttocks, fronts and backs of thighs, and the abdomen. The common skin condition can occur anywhere else on the body as well, and until now not much could be done. The VelaShape II™ system treats cellulite using hand-held devices appropriately sized to any part of the body under consideration of treatment.

Dr. Banks is a board-certified (ABPS) plastic surgeon serving residents in Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD and surrounding communities at Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery. She is a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
