"Really Listens to you - Always personal and authentic. Listens to your requests (and sometimes fear).

"The BEST in the biz!!! - I absolutely feel like I’m aging gracefully with the help of this amazing man and his staff.

"Amazing doctor and staff A+++ - I have been going to Dr. Moradi for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier with my results.

VelaShape® is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction that utilizes a combination of different technologies to target the cellulite as well as offer size reduction to the treated area. The revolutionary elosTM combination of BiPolar Radio Frequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, and Vacuum and Mechanical Massage allows us to deliver sophisticated energy to the target area. This process results in a deep heating of fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and the underlying dermal collagen fillers. At the same time, the vacuum and massage rollers smooth out the skin to ensure that heat energy is delivered safely, efficiently, and uniformly. The combination of such technology helps to increase the metabolism of stored energy, increase lymphatic drainage, reduce the amount of fat, and smooth out the skin's appearance.
ZWave treatment is a quick and generally comfortable experience for patients, lasting for typically 10 – 20 minutes. During this time, the ZWave device is administered to the desired areas, where it will deliver high-energy radial acoustic waves. This energy addresses the appearance of cellulite by improving blood circulation in the treatment area, stimulating collage formation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, and improving skin elasticity and firmness. It is important to note that optimal results will appear if the recommended treatment plan is adhered to, which generally involves 10 sessions, twice a week for a duration of 5 weeks total. After the 5 week period, patients should begin to see noticeable results.
