Ultracontour is an innovative, painless and safe medical device for non-invasive fat reduction treatments. The main role is to stimulate the body’s natural metabolic processes as a result of a combination of two ultrasound technologies: focused HIFU ultrasound beam and ultrasound lymphatic drainage (UMD). As a result, local damage of fat cell membranes (lysis) and depolarization of triglycerides occurs, which causes the release of fat into the intercellular space. And the lymphatic drainage accelerates the removal of fluids from the intercellular space to the lymphatic system. The Ultracontour treatment allows to model the figure causing the reduction of circuits in selected parts of the body and is designed for people struggling with local excess tissue which is difficult to eliminate. It consists of two parts and the whole procedure takes about 1.5 h. In order to achieve satisfactory results, it is recommended to perform at least 3 treatments.
The advantages of the ultracontour
During the procedure, a low frequency ultrasound is used. This technique allows the removal of adipose tissuewithout affecting surrounding structures such as blood vessels, nerves, muscles.
The procedure is not associated with inconveniences typical for liposuction (e.g. very severe pain, prolonged sensory disturbances, swelling, bruises, vascular embolism), which is a very invasive surgical procedure, associated with a prolonged period of convalescence and risk of complications.
Selective destruction of fat cells consists in damaging their cell membranes and the removal of breakdown products takes place during metabolic processes. The Ultracontour procedure makes it easier to get rid of excess adipose tissue from places which are hard to get rid of despite diet and physical activity.
By heating the tissues, the collagen fibres are shrunk and during the lymphatic drainage, tissue fluids are drained from the intercellular space, resulting in a smooth and modelled appearance of the skin.
