The body shaping industry is experiencing substantial advancements in fat reduction technology. One energy-based platform is uniquely incorporating fractionated ultrasound technology and ultrasonic mechanical drainage (UMD) to deliver energy deep down to liquify fat cells and accelerate elimination through the lymphatic system.
According to dermatologists Ömür Tekeli, MD and Evşen Altunay, MD (Istanbul, Turkey), the Ultracontour® NG from MedixSysteme (Ruggell, Liechtenstein) is primarily used to deliver body contouring, shaping and skin tightening results. “It is typically used by patients who are looking to improve the appearance of cellulite, loose skin and body contours,” Dr. Altunay shared. “While the majority of our patients are women between the ages of 30-60, Ultracontour is a perfect device for both men and women who are seeking non-invasive treatments at any age.”
It offers up to 20 piloted and custom-programmed emitters for a hands-free treatment that can be efficiently delivered in three sessions of approximately 20 minutes each. Treatments begin with a five-to-ten-minute session using one of the unique handpieces that target either deep fat or cellulite, followed by the hands-free protocol. The piloted emitters are then placed at strategic body locations for simultaneous treatment of subcutaneous fat in the arms, belly, legs, buttocks and love handles.
“Ultracontour NG has two patented technologies that break up and eliminate fat cells,” Dr. Tekeli reported. “Highly focused fractionated ultrasound (sonodynamic therapy) targets and liquifies fat, while the UMD action expedites results through the rapid elimination of triglycerides and fat debris. Outcomes are further enhanced as thermal action initiates collagen regrowth to improve the skin. “We notice that an elimination of local fat deposits and their skin gets smoother,” she noted.
The device can be used over the entire body, but the most requested areas are abdomen, legs, arms and flanks. Dr. Tekeli shared that the treatment is quick and can be done in 20 minutes, which is important to her busy patients. “Patients enjoy that the entire procedure is quick and painless, with only a warm sensation in the treated area.”
While it targets fat reduction, Dr. Tekeli and Dr. Altunay shared that they combine it with other treatments to increase patient satisfaction. “By combining it with technologies such as high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) to help develop muscle, we are able to provide our patients with the muscular and lean appearance that they dream of, more quickly,” Dr. Altunay noted. She added that success with fat reduction is amplified when the patient has complied with their home protocols that include diet and exercise.
Ultracontour NG is the first technology to target fat reduction with 20 precision emitters that can treat several areas at the same time quickly, effectively and safely with no downtime. It can be used as a standalone treatment or as an adjunctive therapy to provide an efficient and effective body sculpting solution, which can greatly elevate the patient experience and satisfaction for any aesthetic practice.
