Information about Cellulite – Contact Thermography
Contact thermography is based on the use of microencapsulated liquid crystal plates that have the property of changing color according to temperature variations.
By placing these plates on the body, it is possible to detect the skin temperature (which reflects what happens in the underlying tissues) and therefore highlight, through color pictures, the presence or absence of the typical signs of cellulite and the type of adiposity on various parts of the body.
The first applications of contact thermography date back to the 1970s in the medical field (mass screening of breast diseases, other investigative actions in areas such as rheumatology, angiology, sports medicine and many others). More recently this method has been adopted in the professional aesthetic field for the early detection and classification of the thermal aspects of cellulite and the type of adiposity.
