VelaSmooth™ VellaSmooth™ treatments can help you get rid of cellulite.  VelaSmooth™ is a medical cellulite solution that utilizes elos (electrical-optical synergy) technology—a combination of bi-polar radio frequency (RF), light infrared energy, and tissue manipulation.  A vacuum and specially designed rollers manipulate and smooth out the skin, while the infrared and RF energies increase the metabolism of stored energy, thus shrinking the size of your fat chambers.  The result of VelaSmooth™ is tighter, firmer skin. 

 VelaSmooth™ cellulite treatments have also been shown to help relieve muscle aches and pains.  Cellulite occurs when fat cells become over-inflated, these fat cells can protrude through your connective tissue causing dimpling.  Eighty percent of women are affected by cellulite.  It doesn’t matter what your age or level of fitness is, anyone can be susceptible.  VelaSmooth™ cellulite treatment is a painless, easy solution with virtually no downtime involved.  VelaSmooth™ is not weight loss procedure, it reshapes and contours your body for a slimmer look and feel.  A full VelaSmooth™ regimen consists of two 45-60 minute treatments per week for up to 6-8 weeks.  You can expect to start seeing noticeable results after your third week.  After the end of your original treatment plan, monthly maintenance treatments can provide long lasting results.

"American Laser in Latham is awesome! The treatments are always worth every penny. I've been going here for years and recommend to everyone. The staff especially is why I keep going back. They are knowledgeable, honest and so easy to get along with. I could go elsewhere but choose American Laser because of products and staff. I'm especially excited that new products and procedures are being offered. Can't wait to try the new Silkpeel! And the Skinmedica TNS Serum is fabulous! Thank you American Laser!"

"I have been a customer for a few years and been doing Velashape. It's been great! I am now looking into Laser Hair Removal but just don't like the cost. Seems a lot for 1 body part. Got quoted $700 for underarms. Seems like maybe they should give their existing customers a better deal for other services. I would do it but a little steep for just underarms :("

"I love all of the people at the West Des Moines office. They made me feel comfortable and it is always fun to see and talk to them. The only problem I had was scheduling other appointments. They did work very hard to find the right times for me. I will purchase other services from them. I was hoping for better results; and feel I need a few more treatments. But, that is not anyone's fault."

"The American Laser Center is great. The staff is excellent and very nice. However, I don't feel like the treatments are helping my condition. I was hoping to see more results at this time. I have had 10 out of the 20 sessions completed. So far my cellulite has not improved."

"I think the staff there is wonderful. They have always accommodated me. I have not seen any results yet from my Vela smooth treatments and I have had 9 of them already. I am two treatments each into the facial treatments. I don't see any results on my face yet either. I am hoping I will start to see results on both soon. If not, It was a ton of money to spend."

"[Velasmooth] takes 14 -16 [sessions] to really see a result... At session 13 I began to see a difference and by session 16 I was thinking about purchasing more, by session 18 I could see results and committed to additional sessions for other body parts. The staff is wonderful. Sharon the nurse I see most often is a real asset to the business. She is very professional and personable."
