Modern medicine has long searched for a simple safe, non-invasive, painless method of removing small, localised pockets of fat. The fact that there are so many different varieties of technique and machines available is a testament to the fact that we probably haven’t yet found the perfect answer for all cases. Yet.
However there is a new machine called the Ultrashape, developed in Israel and now appearing in the UK which promises to be the answer to the prayers of many young women and young men too, and even a fair few of the not so young……
If I asked the question “would you be interested in a treatment which can lose you up to two to three inches off your waist with three painless and non-traumatic sessions roughly one month apart?” If I assured you that it was completely safe and used technology that has even been used to check up on the growth and development of babies whilst still in their mothers ‘tummy’. I feel sure the Ultrashape Machine would impress you. It certainly impressed me..
Ultrasound devices in pregnancy use the reflection of a broad wave to see the baby’s heart and limbs. In a very different way the Ultrashape Contour I machine uses a focussed beam of ultrasound energy to break up the fat cells much as an Opera singer can shatter a glass with just her voice. The Ultrashape machine focuses that beam onto a single small point and literally shakes the cells apart.
There is no penetration of the skin, no pain, in fact very little sensation at all with each three-second pulse of energy from the Ultrashape. You occasionally feel a pleasant warming effect, but more often than not you feel nothing at all. The treatments each take roughly an hour and afterwards there is no swelling or bruising or any other sort of discomfort. The broken cells release their fat into the interstitial fluid and this is then transported by natural mechanisms directly to the liver where it is broken down and excreted.
In fact the Ultrashape treatment is so pleasant that many of our patients actually fall asleep. The same cannot be said for most of the other available techniques.
People have asked me why I offer so many different treatments for fat reduction. The simple answer is that not all fat is the same and certainly not all patients are the same. We offer Velasmooth, Smart Lipo, Injection Lipolysis and now Ultrashape. This is why I offer a free consultation service so that I can personally examine you and assess the position, amount and quality of fat that is in you area of concern. This allows me to tailor my suggested regime directly to your individual problem. The choices vary significantly in cost, numbers of treatments required, relative efficacy in different areas and the amount of pain you have to put up with.
If you have a problem area which you would like me to consider then call the clinic on 01625 598 000 for a free consultation.
