Endermologie versus VelaShape
Which Body Sculpting Method is Better?
This new year is all about reaching your body goals! There a lot of different body contouring treatments out in the market that promise to trim fat in hard to reach places. It can be overwhelming researching all of the potential options. Fortunately, our PUAR skincare specialists have done the heavy lifting for you. We will be discussing the pros and cons of two very popular body sculpting methods, Velashape and Endermologie.
What is Endermologie?
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 as a way to up-keep any lingering fat or cellulite. It 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.
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, toning and tightening the skin. In this process, fat cell release increases and re-densifies the skin.
What is Velashape?
VelaShape is the body sculpting treatment that uses bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light and a vacuum to deeply heat the fat cells in the surrounding tissue, and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. It is also an FDA-approved treatment for reducing fat cells and overall circumference. The heat and vacuum stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin which improves skin elasticity, tones, and improves skin texture essentially shrinking the fat cells from within. VelaShape can be used on the legs, butt, abdomen, back, and arms.
Pros and Cons
Both treatments are not painful and use heat to some capacity. They also have no downtime and are non-invasive which means you can go about your day after the procedure with minimal redness. Endermologie has shorter treatment times but require more treatments to get the same results as VelaShape. Time wise, they balance out.
Both treatments can be used by all skin tones and all body types. No matter your complexion or age, these treatments are completely safe and effective. In addition to regular treatments, a healthy lifestyle is vital to continue seeing results. They also require future touch ups for maintenance.
Endermologie is less expensive per treatment but require more treatments to reach your body goals. Treatment specialists recommend around ten treatments. VelaShape treatment specialists recommend around five, making it more efficient and cost-effective in the long run.
Another aspect that sets Velashape apart from Endermologie and other body sculpting methods is the overall improvement in skin texture. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin from within tightening and toning the skin.
To sum everything up, VelaShape is our winner. It is noninvasive and results can be seen in a matter of 3 sessions. Lastly, it also improves skin texture which no other body sculpting method offers. We have the Velashape technology in our med spa in our new Lake Mary location.
