"Went to Dr. Moradi to treat melasma. Met with Magdalena and she spent one hour talking to me to figure out a possible treatment regimine. She is an expert in melasma. After 2 weeks of the regime my melasma and skin has improved dramatically. I appreciate Magdalena's willingness to listen and ensure I was comfortable with her recommendation. Everyone in the office is friendly. Dr. Moradi is gentle and has excellent bed side manners. I also like his conservative approach on treatments."- D.A. / Yelp / Oct 11, 2018
"Dr Moradi and his staff are the ABSOLUTE BEST THAT THERE IS! I have been Dr. Moradi's patient for about 9 years now and I would not trust my face to anyone else. His experience, knowledge and ability to listen to his patients thoroughly separates him from the rest of the doctors and I trust him completely because of all of these things and more. After 9 years of Dr. Moradi being my one and ONLY doctor, I can without a doubt, tell everyone I know (and do frequently) that Dr. Moradi is THE BEST AT WHAT HE DOES!"- K.L. / Yelp / Oct 10, 2018

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.
