Body contouring is a precise science. Thermage works by transferring heat to the skin’s dermis via an electrical current using monopolar radiofrequency energy. The heat causes the skin to expel old collagen while simultaneously promoting the development of new collagen. Most people notice significant results in the months following a Thermage treatment. New collagen continues to grow, leaving skin tighter, smoother, and firmer.
VelaShape uses a combination of radiofrequency technology, infrared light energy, vacuum suction and mechanical massage to manipulate superficial fat tissue layers. The infrared light and radiofrequency energies increase fat cell metabolism, promoting a reduction in fat cell size. Vacuum suction coupled with mechanical massage stimulates blood circulation in the area being treated, causing a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and uneven skin texture. Most people require a series of six treatments before noticeable results appear.
