Ultrasound Treatments or Ultrasonic Body Contouring using devices such as Ultrashape®, VASER® Shape and LipoSonix® is a minimally invasive way of contouring the body. Similarly Ultrasonic Skin Tightening treatments are available using the Ultherapy® device as an alternative to surgical face lifting for those with mild to moderate facial laxity.
The body treatments are aimed as an alternative for women and men who want effective removal of excess fat cells without surgery, and focuses on the abdomen, inner and outer thighs (saddle bags) and flanks (love handles). The procedure uses focused ultrasound waves to selectively break down fat cells in a particular area, whilst protecting the outside layers of skin, nerves and blood vessels.
The skin tightening treatments use micro-focused ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production, resulting in an “uplifted” effect to the face and neck.
