The board-certified dermatologists at Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, and Groff, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology rid bodies of unsightly cellulite with a coterie of cosmetic procedures. After a consultation identifies customer desires and problematic areas, an FDA-approved VelaShape laser works to reduce cellulite by blasting bipolar radio frequency and infrared light energy onto the selected skin surfaces. The warm light waves reduce the size of fat cells and fat chambers, gradually evening the epidermis and leveling off cellulite, rendering skinparts as smooth as a Boyz II Men CD dipped in grease. Finally, doctors tighten the treated area with a specialty vacuum and roller, paving a highway for heat energy that spurs metabolism and lymphatic drainage. Like most good naps, the sessions last one hour on average, but can vary depending on the body area or severity.
