Excess body fat is more than just an unsightly part of life. It can make wearing tight clothes, showing off your body, and the simple act of intimacy all too shameful to enjoy. The problem becomes even worse when you have an otherwise lovely figure with a toned body beneath those few unfortunate chubby areas.
Solving the problem of excess body fat has long required invasive surgeries, lengthy recoveries, and routine repeat surgeries. This makes that excess fat something that most people simply choose to live with rather than to fix.
The good news is that two non-invasive dermatological procedures can melt fat: laser lipo and Vela Shape(tm). Understanding the differences between these procedures can help you pick the fat removal treatment best for body contouring.
What is Laser Lipo?
Laser lipo involves using high-frequency light to reach fat deposits deep within your body. The light is tuned to special wavelengths that correspond to the fat cells, which means that they simply pass through things like skin without harming them.
When they reach fatty tissue, the light converts to thermal energy. This damages the fat cells, which allows the body to begin removing the excess fat from your body. The major advantage of laser lipo is the ability to remove fat from your body without having to undergo the scalpel of a surgeon. You can remove fat from your hips, arms, chest or buttocks without having to deal with lengthy recovery periods or risking infection.
What is Vela Shape?
Vela Shape(tm) utilizes principles similar to laser lipo. Non-invasive energy turns into heat that leaves regular cells undamaged while forcing fat cells to melt. The difference is in the way Vela Shape(tm) works. It utilizes infrared and radio frequencies to transmit vibrations through the skin to the fat. Suction then works to expedite the process of melting fat while providing a smoother overall result.
The major advantage Vela Shape(tm) maintains over laser lipo is the ability to treat fat-related conditions like cellulite, making it the ideal method for unwanted body fat that remains near the surface of the skin.
Vela Shape(tm) works best on areas where the unwanted body fat is close to the surface such as the cheeks, calves, thighs and torso.
Laser Lipo vs. Vela Shape: Which Should You Choose?
Laser lipo and Vela Shape(tm) represent two similar but incredibly different technologies designed to remove unwanted body fat fromcertain areas.
