If you’ve been through one of our sweltering New York summers, you know how uncomfortable it can be to suffer from unwanted areas of fat or cellulite. Sometimes, no matter how much dieting you do or how often you hit the gym, it’s just not possible to address these problem areas without using a cosmetic procedure. One such cosmetic procedure that has been producing significant results is 1. Velashape is a non-surgical, non-invasive way to target fat and cellulite, and as such is often suggested by Dr. Rokhsar as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It’s the first FDA approved medical device2 for cellulite and for circumferential reduction. It accomplished these approvals while other devices failed to receive them.
VelaShape contours, shapes and slims the body, giving you the opportunity to improve your lifestyle and boost your self-confidence. This is important to note because Velashape can give you a natural-looking final result. In other words, it won’t necessarily look like you have had work done. Instead, it will look like you have gotten a little more fit and maybe a little more in shape.
Reshape your overall figure or focus on a specific area of concern, including thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen and more. The technology was featured in magazines and on national TV shows such as The Rachael Ray Show, The Dr. Phil Show, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The precise heating ensures a typically safe, effective, fast, painless treatment with no downtime. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for mechanical massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers.
If you are interested in learning what Velashape can do you for, contact one of Dr. Rokhsar’s offices (in New York City and in Garden City) to schedule a one-on-one consultation. During that consultation, you will go over your cosmetic concerns and Dr. Rokhsar will recommend the best way to achieve them using Velashape or other technologies.

VelaShape is a body contouring procedure that uses radiofrequency and infrared light energy to smooth the skin’s surface to noticeably reduce cellulite and circumference of the treated area.
The radiofrequency and infrared light energy precisely heats and treats the skin to reduce or shrink the size of the fat cells and chambers. This decreases the amount of space the body has for storing fat, often resulting in a smooth body contouring effect.
VelaShape uses a fat reducing and smoothing technology that utilizes a combination of radiofrequency and infrared light energy with a vacuum to provide an even and reduced circumference.
VelaShape is most effective for areas on the body such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. The two applicators provided by VelaShape are VSmooth and VContour. These devices are designed for large and small body areas, which will allow Dr. Rokhsar to form an individualized treatment plan.
Patients have reported that the treatment overall lacks in pain, and they experience a deep heating sensation below the skin, similar to a deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to minimize discomfort and adjust to your sensitivity and comfort level.
VelaShape provides gradual improvements in appearance, however, the most noticeable results will take place 6 to 8 weeks following the final VelaShape treatment at our NYC office. The treated area will feel smoother and tighter as results progress over time.
Results are progressive and for most patients last between 6 to 12 months.
