Endermologie versus VelaShape
There a lot of different body contouring treatments out in the market that promise to trim fat in the hard to reach places. One of them that has maintained a steady following is Endermologie which advertises its ability to reduce cellulite significantly. Here at Liza Glickman’s Medical Aesthetics Clinic, we have VelaShape.
Endermologie is an FDA-approved massage treatment that uses a roller system to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is non-invasive and is usually recommended in conjunction with liposuction. It also tones the skin around the abdomen, arms, back, and more. It can even be used on the face to tone out wrinkles and fine lines.
VelaShape is the body sculpting treatment that we offer in house. It uses bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light and a vacuum to deeply heat the fat cells, the surrounding tissue, and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. The heat and vacuum stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin which improves skin elasticity, tones, and improves skin texture. VelaShape can be used on the legs, butt, abdomen, back, and arms.
The way that Endermologie works is that the roller and pulsation technologies stimulate dormant and fat cells for deep tissue movement that reduces the appearance of cellulite and tones and tightens the skin. In this process fat cell release increases and re-densifies the skin.
Both treatments are non-painful and just offer a bit of heat and discomfort. Both offer no downtime and are non-invasive which means you can go about your day. Endermologie has shorter treatment times but it requires more treatments to get the same results as VelaShape. Time wise, they balance out.
Both treatments can be used by everybody and all body types. These treatments should also be accompanied by a healthy lifestyle to ensure you see results and manage to keep them. They also require future touch ups for maintenance.
Endermologie is cheaper by the treatment but require more treatments to reach your body goals. Treatment specialists recommend around ten treatments. VelaShape treatment specialists recommend around five.
VelaShape is a wonderful alternative to liposuction with better more natural results and cheaper. It is non-invasive and much safer for the body. It will also improve your skin texture that liposuction does not address. Call us at 407-881-3603 to schedule your free consultation to start on your summer beach body journey!
