  • Reaction by Viora

    Radio frequency (RF) energy powers this effective device and affects the cellulite at a deep level for an effective treatment. "We know that cellulite involves multiple layers of the skin, including fat cells that are in an abnormal location in the dermis as well as an irregular arrangement down in the deeper fat layer of the tissue," says New York dermatologist Dr. Neil Sadick. "So, by having a newer technology like Reaction by Viora that can target both mid-dermal as well as subcutaneous fat cell targets - and also be able to heat the surrounding septum around fat cells - we are able to produce a more effective cellulite outcome for our patients."

    5-7 treatments needed for best results

  • Velashape

It uses several different energies for maximum effectiveness. {!"Velashape | velashape} is a unique device because it combines radio frequency, infrared and mechanical pressure, negative mechanical pressure," says Dr. Hema Sundaram, a dermatologist in Washington DC specializing in laser treatments.

  • SmoothShapes

    Laser and light wavelengths combine in this device to affect the fat cells that cause cellulite's uneven skin texture. "SmoothShapes incorporates different treatment modalities," says Dr. Leyda Bowes, a dermatologist in Miami. "For example, it utilizes movement and it moves through the body in the direction of the lymphatics, but also it utilizes massage therapy or suction, plus combining wavelengths which is what I think is critical for the device." Dr. Bowes says that the wavelengths work together - one increases permeability of the cell membrane, and the other is selectively absorbed by fat cells.
