Do they die or transform? What happens metabolically? How do treated cells interact with connective structures? Is there a risk of internal scarring or DNA/RNA mutation? I can't find specific info online, only commercial sites referring to loss of cellulite & inches. To put it crudely, it sounds like fat gets 'cooked'.
How Exactly Do Fat Cells & Tissue Respond to Velashape's Infrared Light & Radiofrequency?
Doctor Answers (1)
What happens to fat cells with Velashape treatments?
The bipolar radiofrequency and infrared energies used in Velashape deliver enough heat to "trick" your fat cells into using up stored energy. This results in the cell being smaller in size.
This does not damage or destroy your fat cell
The heat also causes new collagen to develop which results in some nice skin tightening and shaping
