I would really love to hear others' experience w/this as well. I'm an avid exerciser & at 41 have managed to stay in pretty good shape, but genetics has caught up with me & my rear end--small & pretty muscular--has turned into my mother's, just not as large. I wonder, if it's a genetic thing, will Velashape work?

I've been scouring the internet & I don't put much stock in the RealSelf.com reviews--people who're angry about something will put more energy into criticizing it, people who're happy with something generally won't make the effort. The only thing I've found that's remotely scientific is an interesting study from Vanderbilt U that says it's effective for at least half of those who go through the treatments:

I just don't know if I should go through with this or not. It's an awful lot of money for something that might or might not work. :?

I'm very skinny. I see alot of cellulite on my legs. Nothing works. I have finally come to the realization that it is a gravity issue. I've always been very thin and I do not intend on getting a thigh lift. I'm going on 57. If I lost anymore weight to get rid of the fat, I would be a stick. Velashape did not work for me. My doctor tried 3 treatments and we saw no results. He told me if you haven't seen any results after 3 treatments, don't waste your money. My new motto is "JCIU" (just cover it up). Alot cheaper and easier. I just wear sheerer clothes so you can see my form but not the yucky part!

Yes, it really works!

I just finished my 3rd treatment, & I am very pleased with the results! I'm having it done on my butt & thighs. The dimples have all but disappeared, my skin is smoother & much tighter. :) :) :) :)

Now, the doc did say I was the perfect candidate since I exercise at least an hour a day, am very health conscious & almost obsessive about eating right (BTW, this does not mean dieting just to stay thin, it means dieting to stay healthy & fit), and am at an age that I've caught it in enough time for it to be preventive. I cannot speak to others' lifestyles & health, but it has worked beautifully for me. I have 3 more sessions, & from the results I'm seeing I might just get my 30 YO rear end back. =D>

WORKS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!

It takes up to 6 treatments to see a reduction in cellulite. Remember it is not going to completely remove it but it will help a lot. I recommend doing one a week for 6 weeks. You also need to be a good candidate for the treatment. If you are 30 lbs over your target weight it may not be for you. I have had the treatment done and I am also a certified velashape tech. Any questions just ask me:)

To Velashape_ I can bet you anything you work for Am@$*N Lazr Cntr!! Funny how you claim this Cr8p really works. I'm have done 15!! treaments and let me spell it out for you! N-O-T-H-I-N-G! :evil: NO RESULTS! SO do these girls the favor and stop telling stories which are not true :^o . You....(clearing throat) I was told I only needed 3 to 5 treaments....ha! BS! :^o So stop sitting on u behind looking at blogs and make up some fake username and tell lies! This does not work. 150 degrees :shock: on my stomach only cause MAJOR stomach pain after a few weeks of your VELASHAPE. I haven't been regular even since! My shape is still the same> I work out, go to the sauna; wear waist wrap, and to work I wear a corset. So NO your cr8p does NOT work, expensive tooooo =D>

Later Jen! [-X shame shame

=D> later
