Body Contouring with Focused Ultrasound
Focused ultrasound body contouring is approved in Canada as a clinically proven, non-surgical, non-invasive body contouring solution for both men and women. This procedure uses ultrasound technology to deliver focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the subcutaneous fat layer. It is designed to target and disrupt only adipose tissue (fat), leaving surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue intact. It is not a treatment for weight loss.
How does it work?
The ultrasonic technology delivers focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the subcutaneous fat layer. It is designed to target and disrupt only fat cells. There is a tracking and guidance system designed to deliver smooth, uniform body contouring results.
Are the treatments safe?
Yes. Over 30,000 treatments in 250 treatment sites worldwide have been performed without any serious adverse events.
Who benefits from Focused Ultrasound Body Contouring?
These treatments have been designed for men and women who are of average weight or moderately overweight and are not interested in a surgical procedure. It is not intended for weight loss, but rather for body contouring.
What areas can be treated?
The abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs (saddle bags), and back can be treated.
What happens to the fat?
When the fat cells are disrupted, the released triglycerides are processed by the body's natural physiological and metabolic pathways in the liver in the same way that fat is processed during weight loss. The liver does not distinguish between fat coming from the focused ultrasound body contouring treatment and fat originating from consumed food. Controlled clinical studies have shown that the released triglycerides do not accumulate in the blood or liver.
What happens after treatment?
Since there is no recuperation period, patients can return to their normal routine but are advised to continue with a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy diet.
How long does a procedure take?
Each procedure takes 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of target treatment areas.
How many treatments are necessary?
Focused ultrasound body contouring has been clinically demonstrated to deliver durable and measurable circumference and fat thickness reduction in a single treatment, and incremental reduction with multiple treatments. Usually, three treatments are performed two weeks apart. No maintenance treatments are required.
Are the treatments uncomfortable?
No. It does not require any anesthesia or sedation.
What results can be expected?
Within a month, there is an average reduction of 2 centimeters in body circumference following a single treatment and incremental reduction with several treatments.
Will the results last?
The results will last as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
