When it comes to non-invasive body contouring, it seems as though there are endless options available on the market today. Each body contouring treatment promises inch loss, but they take very different approaches in order to achieve those results. How do these body contouring treatments work, and how are they so different from one another?
VelaShape combines the power of radiofrequency energy with vacuum technology to heat and destroys fat cells underneath the dermis. In addition to destroying fat cells, radiofrequency helps to heat and trigger collagen production for younger, tighter-looking skin. By combining these two effects, VelaShape helps to eliminate the appearance of cellulite and promote inch loss around the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and waistline.
UltraShape Power uses ultrasound energy to heat and liquefies those same fat cells. UltraShape Power delivers a bigger punch (clinical trials have shown that it reduces fat cells by up to 32%); however, it’s not as effective at eliminating the appearance of cellulite as VelaShape. Therefore, the right treatment for you will depend on the specific results you’re looking for from your body contouring procedure.
If you’re not sure if UltraShape Power or VelaShape is right for you, schedule a consultation at Laser Skin Care Center in Long Beach, CA today. A board certified dermatologist can work with you to determine which treatment is best for your needs, and what you can expect from your chosen procedure.
