Ultherapy Is the only FDA approved skin tightening for the face. It uses pulsed focused ultra sound that actually give the skin on face, neck and décolletage area a “shrink wrap” effect due to the penetration of deep intense ultrasonic waves that actually propel energy into the deep layers of the dermis instigating a collagen production and tightening. Patients have no downtime and results develop over a 4-6-month period. The treatment is one time for the areas you choose to tighten and are permanent but can be done again as aging does continue. This may be a good choice for someone who needs a lift but is not ready for surgery or a full-face lift. A consultation is required.
Ultrashape Power is the first only FDA-cleared non-surgical procedure that used pulsed, focused ultrasound for fat cell destruction. UltaShape Power lll painlessly destroys fat cells without harming the surrounding skin, nerves, or blood vessels. It is currently under protocol for to use on other areas, which has been cleared in Canada for these areas and can be applied by us with clinician discretion. Examples of these areas would be male breast correction, (gynecomastia) and underarms among other spots that seem to be tough to rid of fat. This technique compared to others is superior as most current research has shown. Showing fat reduction of at least 32%! Unlike other fat reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, Ultra shape Power treatments are virtually painless and leave you free of any unwanted visible side effects.
Patients are required to complete 3-6 session two weeks apart depending on the size of the area. There is not downtime and no pain involved. A consultation and treatment can be accomplished on the same day.
Velashape III uses a combination of technologies:
a vacuum that elevated the target tissue, bringing it closer to the energy source.
Infrared Light (IR) directly heats the targeted area
Bi-Polar radio frequency (RF) energy safely guides heat evenly throughout targeted area, so that it heat faster without damaging skin.
These energies combine to deep-heat fat cekk abd the surrounding tissue. The result is a smaller circumference and a reduction in the appearance of Cellulite! The results are outstanding and it’s FDA approved to remove cellulite and tighten skin on abdomen and thighs. Our results also show amazing improvement for buttocks and other areas. The patient is required to complete at least three treatments. Consultation and treatment can be accomplished on same day. The results are long lasting. Continued treatment can maintain the results for cellulite and tightening.
The procedure lasts about an hour. Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep sensation like a deep-tissue massage.
