velasmoothDescription: This new procedure uses radio frequency waves and infrared heat to break down stored fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

How it's done: The VelaSmooth machine is a hand-held device that the technician or doctor rolls over your fatty areas. Rapid cyclical suction, plus the manual pressure applied by the technician, keep the skin in close contact with the device and the radio frequency waves and infrared light emitted through it. You'll need to do one to two sessions a week for a minimum of eight sessions to see optimal results, plus one maintenance session every few months.

Complications: None. Results may vary; some clients respond better than others.

Recovery: No downtime.

Cost: $1,000 to $3,000.
