It looks like your treatments in Los Angeles may have been too aggressive.
The welting is because there may have been too much suction and not complete contact with the handpiece. They call this 'arcing'.
For the Velashape III, the settings are 1-3 for vaccuum, 1-3 for RF and 1-3 for infrared.
Infrared is used for cellulite treatments as it tightens the skin.
RF energy is used to shrink the fat cells.
Please go back to your provider for an evaluation of the area
