Are you tired of dealing with cellulite?

As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin. The small bulges through the connective tissues create dimples or bumps on the skin, typically appearing on the thighs and buttocks. Almost all adults suffer from some degree of cellulite. If you are overweight, weight loss can improve and minimize the appearance of cellulite. However, it is often impossible to resolve cellulite dimples with diet and exercise alone. That’s when our advanced cellulite reduction treatments come in. 

Achieve smooth skin without surgery

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi in Carlsbad, CA, is proud to offer non-surgical liposuction alternatives such as VelaShape and ZWave that address cellulite in the thighs and buttocks. Each of these treatment options is performed by a registered nurse, licensed aesthetician, or certified physician’s assistant. You may be a candidate for cellulite reduction treatment if:

  • You are reasonably close to your ideal weight
  • You are looking to minimize cellulite without losing a significant amount of weight
  • You want a safe treatment that doesn’t require surgery, needles, or downtime
  • You want your skin to be firmer, healthier, and more youthful

VelaShape is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction that utilizes a combination of different technologies to target cellulite. A revolutionary combination of radiofrequency waves, infrared light energy, and vacuum and mechanical massage allows us to deliver energy to the targeted area. This process results in a deep heating of fat cells and their surrounding connective tissue.

At the same time, the vacuum and massage rollers smooth out the skin to ensure that heat energy is delivered safely, efficiently, and uniformly. This combination of heat and massage helps to:

  • Increase the metabolism of stored energy
  • Increase lymphatic drainage
  • Reduce fat
  • Smooth out the skin


ZWave treatment is a quick and generally comfortable experience for patients. It typically takes 10 to 20 minutes per session. During this time, the ZWave device delivers high-energy waves to the desired area. This energy improves blood circulation and stimulates collagen formation, encouraging lymphatic drainage and improving skin elasticity and firmness. For optimal results, you must adhere to the recommended treatment plan, typically ten sessions twice a week for five weeks total. After five weeks of treatment, you will begin to enjoy visible results.
