What is the best technology against skin laxity, fat accumulation and cellulite?
It is widely accepted today, and our research into the industry and practical experience confirms it, that the most effective anti-cellulite, fat reducing and skin firming technology is high-power monopolar radiofrequency. Our experience suggests that the second best technologies are needle-free mesotherapy (only if used with a concentrated mesotherapy cream/gel) and ultrasound cavitation.
Other techniques such as acoustic wave therapy, microcurrents, vacuum suction, skin rolling, lymphatic massage, body wraps, vibration, pressotherapy and LED therapy, offer poor results, especially in comparison to high-power monopolar radiofrequency. Contrary to popular belief, lasers (both ablative and low level "cold" lasers) are too superficial to affect deep structures such as deep collagen fibres, cellulite or fat and are a waste of time for fat loss and cellulite reduction.
Having said that, it is important to note that only very few types of radiofrequency "work". Bipolar radiofrequency, capacitive radiofrequency, high frequency radiofrequency or radiofrequency without cooling provide too superficial treatment to affect deep collagen structures, deep fat and cellulite. Similarly, no-needle mesotherapy without a concentrated mesotherapy cream/gel offers poor results, as does low intensity ultrasound.
