Cellulite -- Vaser Smooth, ThermiRF, Cellfina, Fat Transfer, Subcision
Cellulite is a challenging problem.
There are a few treatments that may help, such as Cellfina (advanced subcision) and Cellulaze (laser tightening from inside out). Treatments that work from the outside in (eg. Velashape, Exilis, Thermage, Pelleve, etc.) are less effective in my opinion.
Regardless of the treatment chosen, it's important to have realistic expectations, as results vary and veer towards minimal to mild to moderate (versus drastic) improvement.
Please see an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is experienced with a full range of cellulite treatments.
Be wary of anybody suggesting that treatment will likely product drastic improvement.

Cellulaze vs VelaShape
Thank you for your question! You look to be a perfect candidate for Cellulaze and in my experience, will achieve better results with this procedure. Cellulaze is a less invasive procedure, whereas VelaShape is non-invasive, however like i said, you may not get the results you were hoping for when it comes to VelaShape. No pain, no gain. Good luck!
Cellulaze for cellulite.
There is no permanent cure for cellulite. Cellulaze and aggressive liposuction techniques can improve it for a long time. It can be performed easily under local anesthesia.
