Millions of men and women are turning to body sculpting to contour and trim their bodies. Body sculpting is a non invasive fat reduction procedure, and there are many different methodologies available. But there is still a lot of confusion surrounding this relatively new technology.

What’s the difference between methods? How does body sculpting even work? Read on for the answers to these questions and more in Tropicalaser’s guide to body sculpting.

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting targets and eliminates unwanted fat cells through a topical, rather than surgical, procedure. These body contouring treatments typically do not require an incision or anesthesia, and they come with minimal downtime. There are a number of different methodologies when it comes to body sculpting, but the most popular are ultrasound cavitation and radio frequency.

Ultrasound Cavitation

Ultrasound cavitation uses high-intensity, focused ultrasonic waves (commonly known as sound waves) to separate and destroy fat cells. Energy passes through the skin into the targeted fat cells without harming the skin or any surrounding tissues.

Radio Frequency

Radio frequency delivers energy to fat cells through controlled heat which subsequently destroys them. A benefit of radio frequency is that is not only targets and reduces fat, but it can also be used to tighten up loose or flabby skin. To attack loose skin, the heat is simply targeted at collagen instead of fat. Radio frequency differs from ultrasound cavitation in that radio-frequency destroys fat cells with temperature extremes, whereas ultrasound cavitation involves the mechanical destruction of fat cells that dissolve gradually.

How does radio frequency work?

At Tropicalaser, we use Venus Legacy radio frequency to help you target your most stubborn fat areas. Venus Legacy uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields combined with the innovative VariPulse technology to enable therapeutic heat to safely travel deeper into the skin than any other method of body sculpting. This deeper penetration makes radio frequency the most effective body sculpting method, and allows for increased blood circulation, skin tightening, and immediately plumped and glowing skin.

Radio frequency produces a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This response causes new collagen, fibroblasts and elastin fibres to form. By elevating the temperature of the skin, we force the body to release stress hormones, which then activates the enzyme that is responsible for breaking down fat.

What really sets Venus Legacy™ apart from other devices is the advanced VariPulse™ technology, an adjustable pulsed suction feature that gently pulls the skin upward. This technology allows us to penetrate even deeper into the skin to further stimulate circulation and fat drainage.
