For a long time, liposuction was the only way to contour the body. An invasive procedure that involves incisions, many people were wary of the scars and recovery time. With advances in technology come many options for non-invasive body contouring. But which ones are the best?
FDA-cleared, UltraShape Power uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat-cell removal. UltraShape destroys the fat cells in the focal area and increases blood circulation and lymphatic system activity to expedite the clearance of the liquefied fat. Targeting unwanted fat, this procedure reduces fat deposits and body circumference, and improves body shape. The body naturally removes these fat cells over a 2-3 week period and most patients see maximum results about 4 weeks after the procedure. The results are long-lasting.
Also FDA-cleared, VelaShape is a body shaping treatment that reduces cellulite and reduces the size of the stomach, hips, and thighs. Combining infrared light, radiofrequency energy and vacuum technologies to gently deep heat the fat cells, the surrounding connective tissues and underlying dermal collagen fibers. This stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin, resulting in a localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
If you desire to contour your body and reduce trouble spots and cellulite that don’t respond to diet and exercise VelaShape or UltraShape Power may be great options. Schedule a consultation with Long Beach’s Laser Skin Care Center to find out which procedure is right for you.
